Libby actually asked her boyfriend Mitch to marry her. She had then set out and created her entire wedding by herself. After all, she only had a few days before her birthday. She had even convinced Blair and Megan that she was sincere in marrying Mitch. However, at the wedding, she ran out of the church and jumped in a car which was just entering. Her friend Noah was driving. He took her away from the church and they ended up at a diner in Junction City, Kansas, far from the church. Noah convinced her to eat and then took her to Walmart to purchase something to wear instead of her wedding gown. From here, they set out for a road trip to wherever they ended up.
This book is so much fun to read. Libby and Noah definitely do not do things the way others do.
Libby is the woman who is afraid of commitment, as a result of a traumatic upbringing, still believes in the curse and dreams of finding her soulmate. Noah is a straight up player with no plans to settle down, and as it turns out has some emotional demons of his own. Libby and Noah became fast friends and it took Libby's wedding to someone else to show him just how he really felt.
The hilarity and adventures that ensue after Libby runs out of her wedding left me loving these two as a couple. Noah's change is swoon-worthy when he realizes that he loves Libby and what he'll do to make her happy and give her all the time she needs to see that he's the one also....little does he know Libby is having some of the same revelations.
And of course the book wouldn't be complete without the cast of characters we know and love from the other books, especially Gram and Nana Ruby, who doesn't love those two! I really love that that this book rounded out the three friends and their HEAs, Denise saved the best for last and you won't want to miss it!
The first book in this series was sweetly funny. The second book was more of a skirmish between two strong, competitive lovers. And although this story has the requisite tender, romantic moments, it is laugh-out-loud, tear-inducing hilarious. It’s a total blast you can’t help but enjoy. I heartily recommend it.
If nothing else, this story was hilarious. I just don't like how it was told. There are parts that dragged and then there were moments were I would have like a bit more explanation, but it was rushed. I will say putting Grams and Grandma Ruby together was the mark of genius that nearly pushed this story over to 4 stars. One thing that I was really looking for was a show down between Libby and her mother again. If nothing more than an explanation for some of the things we discover in this book. HECK, I would've been happy with just a little aside about her. She was introduced and talked about as being a big part of Libby 's insecurities. But that's all we get.
All in all, it was enjoyable. I hope we get a follow-up story.

I was a bit wary about reading this one as I wasn't the biggest fan of book 2 but thankfully it was nearly as good as the first book so in the end I was very happy with this book. When I first started it I didn't think that I was going to like it as I didn't like how everyone was treating each other. Once I got over all of that it started to pick up rather quickly to the point of not wanting to put it down. What I have loved about this whole series is the humour and this book is no different as I would find myself laughing out loud which I love when a book can do that. As well as the humour there was also a bit of sadness in there which I actually don't mind as I then know how invested in a book I am when I feel everything the characters are feeling. The romance side of the story felt a little rushed and even though I found myself not caring about this in the first book, I just couldn't quite get over it in this book as it felt forced at times. There was some very sweet moments that I loved them together and for the most part it was when they where friends when they where the sweetest but by the end I needed them to be together. The ending was so sweet and fitting for the end of this particular series and even though I will be sad to see them go I'm pleased that there is going to be a spin off series so I do hope to see a glimpse of them just to see how everyone is getting on.
I have always been a huge fan of most of the characters in this series and I was looking forward to getting to know Libby and Noah a bit better and I wasn't disappointed. Libby had been such a strong character in the previous books it was nice to see more sides to her character as she comes across as a selfless and caring person but she also showed a vulnerable side as well. I must admit I was most excited to read more about Noah as he has been one of my favourite character as his humour and the way he treats Libby has always drawn me to him. I also liked seeing his vulnerable side as well as it made him more of a realistic character. My all time favourite character in this series without a doubt has to be Gram she is such a funny character that every time she appears she steals the show and I loved that she was in this book a bit more than the previous book. I was a little bit disappointed with Megan and Josh with the way they acted especially towards Libby and Noah these characters that I loved in the first book just didn't feel like the same characters. Blair was just as annoying in this book as she was her own but right near the end she was able to redeem herself and likewise with Megan and Josh.
Overall, I'm so pleased that this book didn't disappoint me as much as the previous book and now I'm looking forward to staring the spin off series.
Libby St Clair proposes to Mitch as her 30th birthday approaches after the curse placed on her and her two best friends by a fortune teller which appears to have come true for Megan and Blair with their weddings. Although she knows Mitch isn't the one for her, time is running out to meet and marry 'the one' but as the wedding fast approaches everything is going wrong as her best friend Noah changes his mind at the last minute about coming to the wedding.
All changes at the altar as it dawns on Libby that the curse isn't going to come true and a he will end up actually marrying the wrong person which wouldn't be fair on Mitch so she apologises and runs out, jumping straight into the nearest car, asking to be taken away as fast as possible. As into turns out, when she looks up at the driver, Noah has arrived to stop the wedding after realising how he truly feels about her so he agrees to whisking her away.
I suspect I may have already said too much, so without risking giving away anymore of the superbly written story, what I will say is that this is possibly the best one of the trilogy. I read it in less than 24 hours, forgoing sleep as it arrived at 1.40am so I read until 4.30 then dozed off but was back awake and reading just after 6. This is one of those rare books that completely suck you in. I almost had a panic attack when I noticed I was 95% through as although I needed to know the ending, I didn't want it to end!
Several times during the book I laughed out loud, much to the amusement of my husband, there are some hilarious moments in this, usually involving Gram or Nana Ruby who I adore.
I really hope there will be a follow up, maybe with all 3 friends as I have to see how it all turns out for the future.
Well done Denise, you've outdone yourself with this absolutely AMAZING book, I only wish I could give it 10 stars.
I was lucky enough to win an advanced release copy of The Gambler in return for my honest review. Thank you for the opportunity to read this amazing story.
Thank you Denise for keeping one (slightly) senior citizen out of trouble and amused for hours. Your books make my retirement complete.
I love Denise Grover Swank's style of writing its funny, emotional, passionate and down to earth. The reader can't help feeling as if they know all of the characters and feels totally engrossed in their world. Excellent series which kept me fully engaged and entertained, I especially loved Gram. I felt slightly bereft when I had finished but to my delight the story continues so I am off to read the next instalment about Blair and Valentine's and Kevin who I had been wondering about.
