Then she will find out the problem that started it was really all in her head, so that will open the way for a glorious HFN ending. I don’t think it’s telegraphed particularly either, although it is nicely foreshadowed earlier in the book. There’s something about long distance affairs that strikes a chord with me, despite the fact I only started working away from home after we were married. But that’s a different story.
Ah, well all to the good, I’m enjoying this story, and it’s going to take at least another book to bring it to a final conclusion.
