One of the things I like best about Kate's books is how carefully and thoughtfully they are written. Meg is a nice person who has been really hurt by a broken friendship and worries, perseverates a little even, about mistakes she's made. This felt very real to me.
I liked her as a character and I liked her romance with Reid, although I do wish is was more more of a main part of the story. Although there is a definite happily ever after that will please romance fans, it did feel like the author was more interested in Meg's growth and the friendship plot, and that was hard because I never really liked the friend too much and it kind of seemed like Meg was better off without her. A big info dump at the end from Reid (in a letter, which is on brand) wasn't as cathartic as I wanted.
