Ugh... what? I'm really not sure what happened here. This is a case of heroine fatigue. Kate, pushed to her limits by book 1, is shoved right off the cliff in book 2. Carter's voice was still so strong and there was still enough for me to love the characters so I'm not giving up yet.
I'm a little sad with what happened to the romance. Carter has a deft hand at squeezing the most angst possible out of a scene. It's a talent, except when it alienates me from the characters. One scene got me to the point where I don't know if I can root for Kate and Henry anymore. I think that Kate staying might be worse for both of them. I know that's not how it's going to work out. It's a romance! That being said if Kate where a real life friend I would be taking her to a divorce lawyer.
