They are one of, if not the best couple I have had the pleasure to get to know and read about. I really couldn't be more pleased with the direction their relationship has headed and is continuing to go.
Why barely 4 hearts? There was way too much focus on the investigation for my tastes. This far into a series, when I am this invested in a couple, I just don't care about a police mystery and investigation. I really, really don't. I wanted Tony and Mac. If they weren't on page together, I was probably skimming. For that reason, I'm guessing I skimmed about 30% of Home Work. At least.
But then the last 50% happened and I was so in. So much happened to them as a couple and individually and as a family that I was riveted and just. couldn't. look. away. I don't want to give too much, or anything away because I think readers should be right there with Tony and Mac. Right there as they deal with everyday challenges together and make life changing decisions. I loved how they did it all together and are so completely committed to each other.
I love them. I love them as partners, as lovers and as parents. It's taken them three books to get there, but they've finally landed on solid ground, with their sweet babies right there with them.
What's better? I still have one more book to read about these characters I've fallen in love with.
