I was real nervous about reading the story, after reading some of the reviews. I will say I don't totally disagree with some of the comments. It was not horrible, it was just okay. It wasn't a lack of details during sex that was an issue for me, because I don't need to the details to feel the chemistry and emotions between characters. I struggled to get a feel for the chemistry between Camille and Maxwell. Chemistry is not about getting sexual, its about feeling a connection. The words were on the page, but the feeling was missing. The big build up in all of the other stories regarding the Terrence Matthews lawsuit was simply glossed over in the story, which was a big disappointment.
The affair between Nurse Tsang and Dr. Dudley was not really dealt with. This story probably would have better in the middle of the series, however it just didn't do justice to the build up in the other books. I feel as though Ms. Thomas wrote a book to fulfill her contractual obligation, however she remained detached from the series. It seems that Ms Thomas didn't connect with her characters. She is a gifted writer, when writing about what she is passionate about, however it is important to be able to stretch yourself to connect with all your characters. The writer's job is to make me care about the characters and their story. Ms Thomas failed to do that.
