This second in the Caitlin Ross series continues to impress with multiple complex characters and action that sweeps you along into the story without becoming overwhelming. The end offers resolution while inviting me along for the next part of the ride, which I find refreshing!!!
While the first book in this series, The Unquiet Grave, drew me in ... this one gripped me. The emotional impact was profound, over and over again, from the miscarriage to Timber's retrieval to Beltane and on. I feel like I know these people and they are my friends.
It was wonderful coming to know Timber a bit better! Where he's come from and how he got to be truly Caitlin's husband and life partner, what motivates him and pushes him, why he puts up with Caitlin's idiosyncrasies, etc. I wasn't drawn into this story as I have been with the others, but that's to be expected with a series of short stories. Well done again, Katherine!
