And I got to experience the joyful event through many different perspectives. Loved that, too.
And I'm positive Katie will return to Jamie.
I'm on to the next book.
The setting is the double wedding of Eric and Dana, and Brenden and Rachel, two perfect couples finally tying the knot. At the same time, Liam is working through things with Noel, trying to balance her need to be in the U.S. with his need to return home to Sweden. And then there’s Jamie and Katie, two kids who sooooooooo should be together but won’t be — at least for a while.
However, in telling small stories about everyone, the chapters jumped around in point of view a little too much for it to be easy to follow. About the time I was comfortable seeing everything from one character’s perspective, another one came flying in, and while that did give a very well-rounded look at the team we’ve all grown to love, it made it hard to connect.
For what it is, though, Double Major did the job. It connected some pieces together, tied up some loose ends from the previous stories, and set the tone for the rest of the series. If you’ve been following the Portland Storm series, this one is a must-read.
It is not, however, short on emotion.
It really can't be, after all, wow a double wedding, the NHL draft, a mother-child reunion... Ms Gayle seems to want to get it all into this little story.
And I would say, she succeeds. I didn't all-out cry during this one, but I sniffles, and smiled, and even sort of laughed. It's a beautiful story, once again, and while it wraps up some loose ends, it also creates a few. I am waiting for the stories that must happen in Scandinavia! They truly must!
Fans of Catherine Gayle’s Portland Storm series will no doubt love this latest novella, Double Major. In the middle of the off season, two players marry in a double ceremony. Along with the excitement of the wedding there are a lot of changes coming to the Portland Storm family and this book gives us a little insight into what is happening next.
This story is told from various points of view from characters we have spent time with before. We get to see Dana and Eric as they get through their wedding day and face what comes next in their lives. Dana’s brother Brenden and his fiancée, Rachel are also tying the knot with Rachel finally getting the dream wedding she’s always wanted and Brenden taking on not only a wife but two children he’ll be happy to call his own as soon as the adoption is final. Liam and Noelle are headed to Sweden so she can meet his family and the family of his late wife and Liam is hoping Noelle loves his home country as much as he does. An unexpected wedding guest leaves Sara reeling and Cam there to try and keep her calm. Jamie is feeling all sorts of guilty because while he’s in Providence to be a groomsman for two of his teammates and friends he’s missing being with his brother who will be drafted into the NHL at some point and while he was happy to be there for his friends, he wants to also be there for his brother. To top is off he will see Katie for the first time in almost 6 weeks and he knows she’ll have some news of what she plans to do with her life to share.
As a lover of this series I was more than excited to see glimpses into the lives of all of these characters I have grown to love. While there were a few moments that made me sad (and made me cry) there were many more moments of absolute happiness and a glimpse into what we can expect in the future with this series.
While this book had me humming David Bowie’s Changes because there are so many, I can’t help but realize that’s what life is all about. Sometimes changes are easy and sometimes they are hard, but they always lead you in a new direction. It’s up to you if you make the most of them or let them drag you down. With this group, I can only imagine how these changes will affect their lives and I can’t wait to see what the future holds in store for all of them.
