Ms. Paul crafted a perfect ending to the Second Wife trilogy. Once again, the reader is taken on an emotional rollercoaster of love, laughter, fear, and tears. Ally remains the strong heroine we have grown to love, and Eddie unflinchingly persists in being her protector, hiding in the background and stepping up when needed. But the past several years have inextricably woven their lives and those of "her boys" into a frayed knot. Throughout this nail-biting and heartbreaking story, Ally and Eddie work to cut this knot and retie it into something safe and lasting.
Once again, Ms. Paul educates the reader on human catastrophes, this time including the medical condition of Aplastic Anemia. In The Deadly Match, Ally desperately tries to find the matching donor who can save her young son's life. She will jeopardize her own life, risking the happiness of her loved ones if she fails, as she takes chances only a mother could understand.
This book has all the physical and emotional conflict we have come to expect in the Second Wife series. I laughed, cried, bit my nails, closed my eyes a few times and prayed before finally turning the last page. The sizzling moments of passion and longing between Eddie and Ally threaded throughout the chapters were a nice surprise that added a sweet fragility to both hero and heroine.
I will miss this series but cannot wait for the next. The next generation can only be improved upon after being shaped and molded by Ally and Eddie. Now go get swabbed so you can be the next hero on the Jayden's shelf.
