It’s funny how desperation and wanting to prove too much point can lead to an act of desperation that can wither one can regret forever or put into a stop before it can create an irreversible damage. This book is about making a very hasty decision after a major event that occurs between the life of two individuals in a relationship just to prove a point. Which almost led to a life of mistakes and regrets.
You know it’s a good or a bad book when there’s an intense emotion that rises inside you that makes you want to throw your book or book reader so hard due to some courses of events from the story you are reading. In my case, it’s a good book that I got really carried away. There are many incidents in this book that I want to throw Lily Rosechild (My kindle)due to to intense emotion I feel towards the story and the characters.
The finale of the summer series is quite an enjoyable book and I had some epiphanies while reading through the stories like making hasty decisions when feeling intense emotions, doing stupid things just to prove a point, and being a selfish person. Along the pages, you maybe able to see all of those three or just one of them. But I can assure you that you will not be able to end this book without the thought of any of those three epiphanies I had.
Mother’s intuition can be a very powerful thing. I find it amazing that Susannah had known who Belly will marry and how Laurel had shown her disapproval towards the biggest mistake that Belly was about to take. I guess that mothers really know what’s best. The letter from Susannah was the most touching thing and the one that made the biggest impact of all. It was the turning point of the story where Belly and Jeremiah grew up and had a major character development. And for that, I loved this book.
The thing about this book is this is where Belly really grew up. It may not have happened in the start or middle, but at least it happened eventually. It was nice seeing that Belly stopped obsession and following Conrad around. As much as I love Conrad and as much as I ship him and Belly, it’s nice that Belly stopped staying behind his shadows and start becoming the lady she has to be. Also, it’s a good thing that Belly stopped being so stubborn and did not continue her plans of marrying the wrong guy.
As for Jeremiah, if I loved his character in the first two books, I started to get annoyed with him in this book. There are instances where I want him out of the picture. He maybe funny and cool but he’s getting on my nerves. Also, I’m one of those girls who believes that there’s no excuse for cheating and cheaters doesn’t deserve second chances. I find him childish and selfish that’s why I don’t think him and Belly will make a very good couple. They’ll just bring each other down.
For my favorite Fisher guy, Conrad, it’s so nice to see that he finally stopped self pitying and being selfless when it involves Jeremiah. His confessions will always be the most touching thing in this series. Being always there for Belly even if it hurts him a lot in planning Belly’s wedding. Also, his letters to Belly in the end are the most touching thing ever.
I find this book quite enjoyable and it’s a must read for those who wants something light to read. It has a good character development and cute love story. The summer series will give you a summer house that you will want to have in really life but will only have a chance to live in through the pages of the Summer series.
