I'll start with the bad: this book ends on an open cliffhanger, with no emotional resolution and very little plot resolution. The assumption is that it will set up a third book. If so, this is a slightly weak second book of a trilogy. If not, it's a very, very unsatisfying ending to Carry On.

The good: this book is very, very funny. Rainbow has a way with words and zingers and she absolutely delivers that in this book. There is a lot of deep emotional ramification and an unflinching look at PTSD, depression, and the effects those have on the characters and their loved ones. There's also a lot of really rich world building and a delightful new character. (Shepard is an absolute delight. I wish we'd known him all along!)

Rainbow took a big risk on this book, and she clearly poured herself into it. I like it on the assumption of a third, but I have to admit to feeling a bit betrayed, and like there was a bond of trust broken between author and reader for the book to end this way, with us under the assumption and belief that it's the end of the line. I assume this is for marketing reasons. I think unfortunately, it instead traffics on emotions. With any other author the third book would be absolutely a no brainer, definitely happening, but with Rainbow you never know. She likes to break the wheel and upset expectations.

I will return to this book, and I now have three copies of it (lol. the covers got away from me) but maybe not for a bit, or at least not until we have word on if this is the end or not. Overall, it was a lovely experience. It ached a lot, but it was a fun read, and I fell in love with Penny, and I just felt shredded for Baz. I don't think this is the story that was right for a Carry On sequel, but it's clearly the story Rainbow needed to tell, and I trust and support her vision to see us through to the third!
