    I love the characters in the Ruth Galloway books and Kate is especially believeable. Now that I have finished Book 14, I am feeling somewhat bereft. At the end of book 14, It was not completely clear to me that Ruth and Nelson would continue with their romance, but I thought Michelle’s final comment that she and Nelson had to talk suggested that Ruth and Nelson might be allowed to pursue their clearly deep love for each other while sharing their deep love for Kate. I guess we all must wait!
