4 1/2 starsI'm so sad to see one of my favorite series come to an end.This last book was a favorite.I loved the story, Dean and Blue. The supporting characters, especially Mrs G!But had to knock off half a star for a couple things. I didn't like how Dean ignored Blue when his friends came to his farm to visit. He let that girl hang all over him and allowed everyone to treat her like "the help". Then didn't sufficiently apologize and make up for it.I also didn't care for the separation in the end but totally got it. It was just weird. And I will say, I would not have handled the photo as well as Blue did! (I know, I have issues) This series developed a love of SEP's writing for me. She's a sharp author. The one thing I wish she would not do is describe clothing so much. It really dates her books.
