After the Rain by Karen-Anne Stewart
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was such a great ending to the Rain trilogy. In the beginning of the series (Saving Rain), Raina is a bit more reserved, understandably, but by the end she had changed so much. Not her personality; she was still the sweet, kind, and caring woman as before, but her outlook on life. I loved that we were able to watch her grow as a person – stronger and more confident in herself – as well as watch her and Kas's relationship develop over the pages. Through the whole series, Kas had been dealing with his own internal conflicts over how to keep Raina safe without smothering her with his protective nature, and that struggle really shone through in this book. He made mistakes, but ultimately had to learn to trust her in the same way she had to learn to trust him.
I think one of my favorite parts of this whole series was the Ghost, not him as a character, per se, but the way the author wrote him. In the first two books he is just that, a ghost whose shadow we see, but never quite part of the story. In this book we get a whole lot more of him and what made him tick. It was really quite enlightening. I thought the author did a great job with not only dealing with the sensitive issues raised in this story but also the details of the job and the situations involved as a whole. This book (and series) had everything you need for a great story – love and romance, mystery, suspense, and a great ending.
