As the Baxter series winds to an end, Kingsbury begins to tie things up for all
of the characters. The portion of the plot centering around the affair feels forced. Telling it from the point of view of the offender might have helped the reader to understand the motivation, which seems to come from left field. Still, the characters feel like family,
and the reader hopes for the best outcome for all concerned. Situations involving Dayne and Katy are heartwarming and uplifting.
