I say, yes.
I just finished the last book of a series by one of my favorite authors.
‘Former’ favorite authors, I should say.
The protag had a choice and in the words of a character in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, she chose poorly.
This woman began a relationship by lying to a worthy man. A. Huge. Whopper. Trust was very important to her when she was on the receiving end. But being truthful to the man she intends to spend the rest of her life with was inconvenient.
The ending of this four-book series made me want to throw my Kindle across the room. I refrained at the last minute.
The protag must grow, have human frailties, and make mistakes. But the author can’t make the protag so offensive that a reader is incoherent with outrage as I was.
I want to walk in the author’s world but in this case, with this writer, I have no common ground.
