Out of the three this was not my favorite. It felt rushed in the storytelling and I didn't fell a whole lot of chemistry between Melinda and Nick. I actually skimmed through the last few chapters of the book. I did however enjoy the story line of them coming together to raise Nell.
The Ladies of Summerhill series only gets better. Love By The Book is a moving story that is difficult to put down. Cara Lynn James writes with a lovely lyrical style that brings the turn of the century era alive. Not only does she bring the era alive, but she highlights interesting points of history in all three of the series that have been published so far. I can't wait for the next book by this author.
