This is the third in the Saint James trilogy. I'm writing this review to cover all 3 of the novels.
What I enjoyed most about them all was t..Show More »he way that they all linked into each other neatly. The stories continued into the next novel even though we had had a traditional conclusion. Only Gabby transpired to be the newcomer to the clan.
However this finale was more heavy going than the others. Covering deep topics like substance dependence, single parenting and step parenting among others. So the narrative wasn't an easy one to hold onto. I felt that this story was 'tidied away' too quickly and glibly, given that there were law suits, man management and big business stories thrown in too. Another 4 chapters seem necessary to flesh out more details and tidy sections away.
As I'd listened to these stories back to back, I was a little discomforted by the change in narrator. It made sense to do so, but I confess that I didn't like David's 'new' voice on this recording, but on the whole, both narrators were fine. The novels need to be read in the correct order, starting with Worth the Wait - David's story. These are best read all together in my opinion, as they make a lovely whole. But Jackson's story - this one - doesn't bear the weight of standing alone.
