A bittersweet ending to a long running series…
Can. You. Even. IMAGINE…. seeing the love of your life again, years after they left you at the altar? Lemme just say that fists would fly and tears would flow!
Jonathon Campbell handles the situation with much more grace than I would when his love, Ivana Culpepper, returns from Haiti, where she ran when she was so afraid of failing another marriage that she left him at the altar three years prior.
What follows is so much delightful and scintillating *I need you but I can’t let you hurt me again but I couldn’t possibly resist you but I’m sure you’re going to run again*. Underneath the romance and the hopeful reunion of these two lovers is the ripped from the headlines tension of immigration reform.
As per usual, Farrah brings us into the story, as if we are living it with her characters. I find myself right in New Orleans (or whatever setting she introduces), which is as realistic and vivid as her characters. Jonathon seems… guarded, deeply wounded but also hopeful (and afraid to be so). Ivana is tentative, tired, and ready to stop running. The two personality types combine to bring a realistic love story and such a fitting end to this long running series.
I would be said to say goodbye if I didn’t know that Farrah had brand new characters and brand new series to tempt us with. Bring. It. On. My face is ready!
