Well, crap.

I've been reading the 'Alex Delaware' books by Jonathan Kellerman. I started reading them maybe 12 or 13 years ago, read about 7 or 8 of them, and stopped. Last year I re-read all the ones I had, and started in on all the new ones that have come out since I stopped reading them. I finished #14 last night. I started in on # 15 today

WARNING: If you happen to be reading these books, you may want to skip past this next part. There will be spoilers.

At the end of the #14 things were a bit rocky between our hero and his long time love, Robin. At the beginning of 15, they seemed to be patching things up, but by chapter 2 she took a job as some sort of equipment manager for a rock tour. She'll be gone at least 3 months. I skipped ahead to the end of the book to make sure she'd come back. She didn't. I took a look at #16, and on the back cover she's referred to as his 'ex-lover'. I don't have book #17 yet but I looked it up on Amazon, and Alex's new love, Allison, is mentioned. Alex and Robin had parted ways in one of the earlier books, but they later reconciled and I thought they were now in it for the long run. Crap. Now I don't even want to read these next three books. :( I get really pissed off when people who have such a great thing let it slip away for stupid reasons. I had something great, and I was in it for the long haul. And it got taken from me. People shouldn't waste their chances.

What's even sadder is that I KNOW this is a fictional book--they're not even real people--but I'm so disturbed that I really can't read the book now. I hope I feel different later because I'm just about caught up with the series and I did intend to read them all.

Now what am I going to read?

Edit: What's even more disturbing is that I just found the author's web site and actually emailed him a message to tell him how sad and disappointed I am.

I need help.

I advise you not to get addicted to any soaps right now.

I know what you mean, but it happens more for me with TV shows. I want Grissom and Sara to just get together already!

Pfft! Tom, I gave up on soaps when Josh and Reva divorced for the third time!

Helen, I don't think Sara's right for Grissom. But I think the way she's carrying that torch for him is cute.
