If you enjoyed the first 2 you will definitely love this one!

This was a great end to the Peaches series. I have enjoyed all 3 of the Peaches books and hated to see them end, but was very satisfied with the way it ended. There was some surprises and some things that I saw coming...my favorite was how Leeda's story was wrapped up...her finding herself. Murphy's story wrapped up with a happy surprise and offered a new side of her. Birdie's, while probably the saddest of the 3, still ended well. And I loved the new characters that were introduced and also the back-story on Leeda's gradmom.

Super book...I would recommend!!

Love and Peaches is just like the rest of the series--extremely slow paced, but with some good storylines here and there. It's not amazing, but not bad either. I feel like the characters reached their emotional growth potentials a long time ago, and a lot of this was just reaching, trying to stretch them as far as she could. I honestly think Jodi Lynn Anderson would have had a great book if she'd smushed all three books into one, making for a fast-paced, exciting, and dramatic read. For once, it was Birdie's story that I found extremely boring. She was previously the one character whose story I liked. This time around, both Murphy and surprisingly, Leeda, were the interesting ones. Murphy's doing the same old Murphy thing, so her ending was pretty much the greatest thing ever. Leeda actually did grow as a character for once, or maybe it was in her all along, but it was great to see a mature Leeda who cared about something other than herself. I do thank Anderson for caring enough about her characters and readers to put in a sweet little epilogue.

I am a sucker for friendship stories. I'll admit it.

The whole peaches series is probably one of my favorite series. This review is for all three books in the series.

I love all three main characters, I love the setting, I love the side characters, I love their problems, and I love how all of those things just wrap up in a story together.

Birdie is the glue who holds everyone together, and Lena & Murphy are these two chaotic forces with problems neither of them really know how to fix.

I really liked how flawed each character is, and how they each hole themselves up inside themselves, but somehow when they're together they see beneath that.

The settings are amazing, suited to each girl's personality, yet they all come together at the orchard.

The side characters don't seem like minor characters because they each are full of personality.

Romance in this is not a major event, nor is it minor, which I liked because it shows that the girls do care about having a relationships, but their relationship is not the only subject of their life.

Finally I love how each girl grows, and how they each start to gain little tidbits of each others personality, whether that is good or bad.

All in all this series will fill you with such good, and sweet feelings.

I wouldn't say it is a deep read, nor would I say it was light as the girls do have problems.

I would say it is the perfect book series to read for a car ride, because it gives you a really good feeling at the end because not everything goes perfectly, not everything wraps up neatly, yet just enough good things happen that you are satisfied.

By Kate Coombs VINE VOICE on November 19, 2008
Format: Hardcover
When I first started reading these books, I'll admit I thought of them as Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants light. Now that I've reached the end, I've come to respect the trilogy for standing on its own two feet--or six feet, as the case may be.

The three girls brought together in Book One by a peach orchard are back: Murphy, a free spirit who can't admit to herself her own longings for stability; Birdie, whose love of the orchard first elevated her but now begins to get in her way; and wealthy, perfect Leeda, whose desire to please her high-pressure family has slowly begun to crack through her association with the other two girls.

In this book, each of the threesome continues to deal with love and yes, peaches. It sounds soap opera-ish to ask, Will Murphy go back to Rex? Who is her father? Will Birdie marry Enrico? Will Leeda keep pleasing her mother? But in Jodi Lynn Anderson's hands, these potentially hackneyed questions become something fresh and lovely. As a reader, it's easy to think you can predict the outcomes, but you will be wrong about a few, if not all, of them. It's nice to be surprised by a book.

Anderson also plays with some interesting ideas. Leeda sees her tendency to be uncertain as a failing: "Murphy says not having a niche is my niche," she explains apologetically. But the new, less-polished guy she meets while caring for her late grandmother's surprising bequest has this to say: "Maybe figuring it out is...I don't know, what it's all about. Constantly deciding. And you're true enough not to decide anything before you're ready, and you don't want to lock yourself into a box. Maybe it's the sure people who are missing out."

Murphy, for her part, gives a whole new meaning to fear of commitment.
