There is definitely still the same mushy "first love is forever" theme present in the series, and it really comes to a strong forefront in the last book. Keep in mind as you approach this book that the series is definitely aimed at the younger teen audience. However, if you can get past that, I found the story in Emerald Green to be my favorite of the three.
While I liked the ending, it was a little to "happily ever after" for me. It didn't feel believable, just perfectly convenient. They also didn't explain why the fairy-tale circumstance at the end worked out the way it did very clearly. It felt like a rush to the "What a lucky coincidence! Let's live happily ever after!".
There wasn't as much secrecy and strategy and cunning going on in the ending as I would have originally thought from the first two books. It was a lot of little things, and a HUGE focus on the romance and pretty dresses. I enjoyed it, but I'm not sure I'd have the desire to read it on any sort of regular basis.
This book earned a 3.5 out of 5. It was a fun read, but a bit immature. I think younger readers would love it, but I'm still on the fence as to whether I will find myself wanting to read the series again in the future.
