This was the first book I have read by this author and although this story is the third in the series it was easy to read as a standalone. I loved the characters and the interactions they had needing each other in the times of great solitude and pressures of the pandemic in Australia. The story from Gary was heart-breaking and really delved into his character and who he is now.
I loved this story and can’t wait to read the other two books in this series to understand the relationship got to this point from these characters and hope to read book four in the future.
