SOURCE: Tina from Bookshipper passed this book on to me.


In the final book of bestselling author Melody Carlson’s Carter House Girls series, the Carter House girls are making prom plans and competing for boyfriends, as well as fighting for the limelight in a Mother’s Day fashion show. With graduation and last good-byes around the corner, will they resolve old differences or part ways as enemies?

With graduation looming, the Carter House girls are struggling with college visits, prom dress warfare, and boyfriend situations that are going from bad to worse. Mrs. Carter ups the stress level by planning a typical over-the-top Mother’s Day fashion show, and things get tense when the designer favors certain models. Through it all, surprises are in store for each girl as their time at Carter House comes to an end. As final good-byes approach, some friendships will deepen while others crumble. Will the girls resolve old differences or part ways as enemies?

Well this is the final book in the Carter House series. When Tina offered the book to me I was super excited to read it because it was the final book and I was curious to see how Melody would wrap it all up.

I was a little disappointed when I realized that there wasn’t going to be a tour of the book as there was with the previous seven books in the series.

Sadly its very rare that I don’t like a book as you probably can tell from my reviews. I am not sure if its because I only read books that I am interested in or what but I can honestly count on one hand the number of books I have not liked and I have to say that this way is now included in the list.

For some reason I felt as though the book was written for the sake of wrapping up the series. In the previous books I would have devoured them from cover to cover in a few hours to find out what was going to happen, not this one I found I was forcing myself to finish it.

Anyways about the book, the girls are all getting ready for the prom and a mother’s day fashion show. The girls are also anxiously awaiting college letters to find out where they are going.

As in previous books its never smooth sailing and it seems this time Casey is struggling with a heavy issue. What will she do? Will she go through with it or have a change of heart? For me I was interested in this because I was curious to see how it was going to play out and I was a little surprised.

Eliza is also in a bind as she is running for prom queen and it seems like someone is determined not to let that happen and they won’t stop at anything even if it means ruining her prom dress.

Will old rivals become friends?
