Ciao was a good finishing book in the series On The Runway, but I have to say I was slightly disappointed by the ending! I thought there would be more to the the last book in the series, like what about Erin and Gabin? Will they date? Did Blake ever hook up with Grace? Or will Blake hook up with Erin again? Don't get me wrong I really enjoyed this book and this entire series I just was expecting a different ending! I wish there was going to be more in the series! I'm not ready to let Paige and Erin go because there lives seem so fun and Erin always stuck with her faith! :) Overall I would say a 4.5 stars!
It seems as though this maybe goodbye to our On the Runway cast Paige and Erin Forrester . In Ciao which by the way is Italian for Goodbye , we see the girls off to Milan eventually but not before heading to New York. So , what's our favourite characters been up to as it feels like a while since Ive read a On the Runway novel.

Can Paige and Dylan work things out or is this the end of the happy couple ? Benjamin Kross and Blake are about to get a taste of their own reality show and it's move over On the Runway and Hello Celebrity Blind Dates. Is Blake ready for the big screen ? Fran's leukemia isn't going well but thank goodness that they have found a bone marrow transplant for her , as she goes in for surgery - will the results be positive or is it sad news for the On the Runway cast ?

Find out all this and more in Ciao -On the Runway by my favourite Christian Author Melody Carlson.
Reality is an illusion as Paige and Erin Forrester are about to discover.
Paige is basking in the limelight of her TV career in fashion - she hosts and stars in ON THE RUNWAY, travels the world, and is engaged to rising fashion designer Dylan Marceau. Can life get any better!
Meanwhile younger sister Erin, who also stars in ON THE RUNWAY, is worried about her friends. Mollie a new single mom is dealing with the choices she's made. Her maybe boyfriend Blake is caught up in his new reality show. Fran is fighting Leukemia. And Erin is always concerned for Paige and her relationship with Dylan. But through it all Erin leans on her faith in God and always Him to lead her and to give her strength to help those who are dear to her.
This book will appeal to teens and young adults who follow reality shows and the fashion industry. The behind the scenes look at the lives of people who "live the life" should give anyone pause who desires it. What you see on the camera is not real, but is in fact an elaborate illusion created by those behind and in front of the camera.
CIAO is a good read with a thoughtfully delivered message!
