Oh, yes: I much prefer a satisfying ending when that seems like a more realistic option, although I do love a happy ending that feels like it's grown into place and wasn't simply tacked on to please either the author or readers (or a publisher's requirement). Glad this one turned out to be even better than expected!


Lately if the 'good' ending involves the heroine riding off into the sunset with the hero, I am just not convinced. I wonder if I have finally crossed over into curmudgeon territory. Romance is just not satisfying. I hope it is just a phase or it might make me very sad. Maybe I am just not picking up the right books. That said, this one has a happy ending and a satisfying one and Lily ends up with good friends and a very happy daughter. I liked it, even though she was sort of prickly as the story rolled out.
