Charlotte has spent years as the husband maker, sending every guy she dates off to enjoy marital bliss with the next girl he dates. But things have now changed, and she's determined to use her husband maker abilities one last time--on herself. And she finally knows exactly who she wants. Angus has loved Charlotte since they were teenagers, but he's tired of waiting for her to realize how good they could be. She's broken his heart one too many times, and it's time to move on with his life. Maybe a position halfway across the country will be just what he needs to get over her. But when Charlotte won't let him go without a fight, Angus has to decide if he's willing to let her in again or if she's too late.

I love this series. I have loved seeing Charlotte and Angus on this journey through the first book, and although I'm sad to say goodbye, I did love their conclusion as well. It was sweet, cute story.
Angus has, freaking finally, told Charlotte how he felt. But he feels like he's had his heart broken too many times by her, and that he just needs to move on. But Charlotte, realizing that she too, loves Angus, isn't willing to go without a fight this time. But she's too late. Angus has already taken a residency in Kansas. But he doesn't bank on the fact that Charlotte isn't going to let him go.
This book caused me a lot of angst. Angus is being pretty hard-headed about the whole thing, and it caused me a lot of frustration about the whole thing :P Charlotte has always a fun character, humorous and easy to like. But this book she's also more confident in herself. She knows what she wants, she's an adult, and she's going to get it. I loved seeing this newer, more confidant side of Charlotte. She still has doubts, because Angus is doing a pretty darn good job of pushing her away, but she still pressed forward.
Angus is the only thing that caused me stress in this book. I can understand where he's coming from to a point. But beyond that, he was just trying to play the martyr card, and it wasn't working. But thank goodness for Will, to tell him like it is. I loved the secondary characters, as they were there for Charlotte and Angus like they have the whole series, bringing fun and humor, but also seriousness when needed.
All in all, this was a very enjoyable read, and a great conclusion to the series. It was fun, humorous, although not without its serious moments. I am definitely sad to say goodbye to these characters!
