As I mentioned in my review of the last book, this series can be a bit hard to get into because there are a LOT of characters to try and keep track of. Eventually I just gave up on trying to keep track of them, and overtime I kinda got the picture.
This book had a lot more romance in it than the first book, but it wasn't the annoying kind of romance at all, so yay! Like, really: A big YAY for that! I didn't agree with everything as far as the romance goes, but mostly because I think there should have been more emphasis on things that weren't really mentioned. I was overwhelmingly happy that the author didn't make physical attributes a big part of the plot. OH happy day! (If you can't tell, this is something that REALLY bothers me in books. So, to have a book that was sweet, somewhat romantic, but totally wholesome made me very happy.)
There were several "lessons" taught in this book, but the author does it in such a way that I never feel like I'm being preached at, so that's pretty fantastic. I very much like learning from books, but I don't like being preached at in novels.
Once again there were a few minor things I didn't agree with, but overall I really liked the book. And yes, once again I did buy the third book in the series and begin reading it...
This book is now one of my favorites, and it made me so excited to read the next in the series!
This one started off to be as slow as the first one, but it got better. I wish the relationship had developed faster, but it still made the book more fun to read. I'm looking forward to the last one now. This one only had two minor places I questioned. Once you get poison ivy, I don't think it's contagious. I've never heard of anyone catching it from someone else. Also there was one awkward sentence where the wrong pronoun was used--"He pulled her next to *her* (should have been "him").
This first one: "Ready or Not" was really cute. I liked Aggie. I liked how she handled the guardianship of her nieces and nephews. The grieving, the humor, the way the author portrays real life is exceptional in this novel. Even though there were 8 kids to contend with, the author did a fantastic job of making me know each character individually so there was no confusion. While the book was not a "sit on the edge of your seat" type of book, it was an enjoyable read.
This second one, continues the saga and adds in Luke's mother. By the end of this book, I was ready to kill both Luke and his mother. Can I say Mama's boy? It was just too much for me. Aggie also began to get on my nerves by the end of this story.
*And not to be spoiler alert but it only gets worse after the 3rd in the series.
Others have commented that the author seems to be preaching to her readers through Aggie and I saw it minimally in the first novel, but by the 3rd, I felt like I'd been hit upside the head. It really took away from the story having all the life lessons and parenting ideas that this author feels I should know. I would consider myself a conservative Christian. I am in full time ministry and homeschool my 4 children. I like the show about the Duggar family. However, unless you want to be "preached" to about the virtues of you adopting a lifestyle similar to that, you might want to pick a different series.
Best for Ages: 13 and up
It took me long enough to read the second book in the Aggie’s Inheritance series, but I am so glad I finally made the time for it. It was even better than the first book.
Watching as Aggie deals with school and chicken pox, as well as her own romantic life, was so enjoyable. Yes, at times the story can seem a bit slow or Aggie’s whining becomes a bit much, but it was still wonderful.
As the romance develops, I especially enjoyed seeing how Aggie explains things to Vannie and how she makes the right decisions. I also love the part in this story where Aggie explains the difference between doing something (such as wearing skirts, or saving your first kiss for your wedding day) can be a wonderful standard to have, or a legalistic tool to make you look more spiritual.
One of the things I loved best about these books is that each of the kids is different, and it really shows in the book. Sometimes, when writing about large families, the kids all come out sounding the same. Havig did a great job of making them each sound different.
I highly recommend this book for those who enjoyed the first book, love god-honoring romance, and stories about ordinary people.
Big events are remodeling their home, turning down a proposal of marriage from William and Luke declaring his love and staring to court Aggie.
I love each character and how they interact with each other.
We see God prominent throughout the book.
I look forward to the next book in the series
