If you know me at all then you know that I have been a HUGE fan of the Christiansen family since book one! I have adored every minute of this series and needless to say I loved this one as well, though I admit having to say goodbye to this amazing family was definitely bittersweet. In the previous books I never liked Owen much at all, so I was very curious to see how Susan May Warren would make me come to like him, I knew it would happen but I never expected to completely fall in love with Owen from chapter one, which is what happened! I also loved Scotty, I found myself relating to her quite a bit and I think she was the perfect match for Owen!
Another thing that I loved about this book is how it contains references to two of my favorite things; The Princess Bride, and Les Mis, when I read those moments of the story I got this huge grin on my face, it was so totally awesome that Susan put them in the book!
It goes without saying but I can't recommend this series enough, if you are a fan of contemporary romance and family sagas you NEED to read this series, you won't be sorry!
Words truly cannot express how much I adored this book as well as the entire series, I can only say that the whole series has a permanent spot on my keeper shelf and that I hope to re-read the entire series from start to finish at least once a year in the future!
This was such a great ending to the Christiansen family series and I love, love, LOVED every single minute of it! The epilogue was so beautiful and I will admit that even though I almost never cry at books, that epilogue made tears of joy (as well as sadness at the thought of saying goodbye to one of my all time favorite casts of characters) spring to my eyes!
I can't wait to read whatever Susan May Warren writes next!
Thank you so much to the publisher, Tyndale house for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review, which I have done.
