Best Hathaway book of the series in my opinion. Loved the focus on the male instead of the female and Beatrix is hilarious. Definitely read this last in the series to get a good grasp of all the characters first as they all play an important role in Beatrix' final decision.

I love this series, truly, and this was a lovely conclusion to it. I also think this series is greater than the sum of its parts -- each book in the series has been a solid 4-star read for me, and yet when I consider all five books taken together, I feel even more strongly about how wonderful they are. This is Kleypas at her absolute best -- there's wit and humor, lots of chemistry between well-matched people and, at the center of each book, a family full of people who love one another more than anything. Highly recommended for all historical romance fans.

An incredibly adorable story that very nicely concluded the Hathaways series. It was not what I expected but it was very lovely, nonetheless.

This series is a must read for HR fans!
