Bit of a strange one. The author writes well, and love a book set in NZ, would love to travel there. The plot however was not very credible. Why would a very young man (or even could) have a vasectomy, especially one who seems dead keen to be in a family with children. The boy, I agree, should have been James', the feel good factor for readers. Also as the book is probably the last in the series we will never know if he is successful in having the longed for children, another disappointment for readers! So a bit of a downer all round really.
