    I can't accurately put into words HOW MUCH I LOVE THIS BOOK. Basically, it's A LOT!! But for so so so many reasons. It is clear that the writer and her skills have grown with each installment of this trilogy. I really enjoyed One S'more Summer and was curious how the series would continue to impress me. But man, impress me it did. My favorite aspect of Book 2 and Book 3 were the references to pop culture elements - like the royal wedding and fashion and the Met Ball and the Hamilton-esque Broadway musical based on the life of Queen Elizabeth. The research was so apparent, but even more impressive was the way the Merlin wove the research into a compelling plot. The research and world ALWAYS enhanced the story, it never bogged it down. In terms of the characters, I love how we meet this cast in book one and all of their arcs are realized by book 3. We get a chance to peek into the lives of all of them throughout the series and it really makes the world even more vibrant and realistic. Throughout the series, Jamie was always my favorite, but I have to be honest, Trini kinda slid into the top spot by book 3. The wise words, the support, and the friendship that this mentor provides Gigi exemplifies women supporting each other in the industry instead of tearing one another down. It always felt so genuine and professional and I was inspired by Trini's role as a teacher and as a friend. Lastly, Gigi. Oh, Gigi. What can I say? She was so painfully flawed in book one that I found myself yelling at her aloud at times - "What are you dooooing?!? AHHHH!!" She just constantly self-sabotaged her own happiness and at times, it was hard to watch. But as you come to understand her background, her upbringing, her parents, and her influential past, you come to see why she was drawn to make the decisions she did. It was out of fear and lack of self-confidence - which is to something that MANY of us can releate. But as the series goes on, Gigi finds her footing, she finds her voice, and she finally finds power and strength in her talent. Her growth as a young woman is so evident and empowering to the reader. In addition, I enjoyed the romantic elements of this book, but I loved even more that this wasn't a love story in the traditional sense. The men in Gigi's life and her romances with them were secondary to her growth and her own arc. Where she was with each relationship and each man in her life was defined by where she was in her own journey. If she herself wasn't sure of herself, her relationships were doomed to fail. But as she discovered herself, she was able to make better decisions about her love life - decisions that helped to enhance the happiness she was creating for herself. Long story short (too late, I know) - EVERYONE SHOULD READ THIS SERIES! It's light-hearted, funny, and tackles real issues amidst fun and whimsical elements. Bravo, Beth Merlin. I can't wait to see what you have in store for us next!
