Helped along by Finley's magical vines, Mark finds that he can be perfectly happy in his relationship with Jo even if that relationship is unconventional to him.
I enjoyed one more piece of the puzzle of Amos and Finley's story. I found with this installment that I was more interested in Amos and Finley's parts than I was in Mark and Jo's story. I think maybe because we are getting closer to Amos and Finley's story being complete I'm finding my attention taken by their love story rather than by who they are helping. While Mark and Jo settled their relationship to their satisfaction I found that it was not settled to my satisfaction. But, this is their own "Happily Ever After" and even though it doesn't match my desire for them I'm sure that many will find it just as romantic as the other couples in the town of Finley. I highly recommend this short story cycle. It doesn't have to be read in order. You can jump in wherever you like. Me? I'm an order kind of gal and love to start at point A and finish at point B. If you do that you get the bigger picture and it makes the whole cycle one big lovely read!!
