Splendor by Anna Godbersen
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I'm a little underwhelmed with the finale to this four book series. The romance in the series was mostly well written and focused but the last book almost went too many places with the affections of its main characters; as if to throw the reader off and surprise them but I guess it didn't surprise me.
There were some loose ends and oddities that bugged me throughout the series that causes me to give this book (the last) a three star. Relationships that were pivotal to many storylines just kind of dissipated. I feel like I could have liked this series more if it had delved a bit more deeply into the familial relationships...the basis for the main characters traits. Perhaps that's it, some relationship descriptions were superficial and could have used more attention, but I will give her kudos on the few places she did get it right (Henry & Diane, Elizabeth & two beaus, Penelope & herself righteousness)!
I really did like how the author took a lot of time to explain what everyone was wearing down to the stitching. A very glamorous group and the book did not scrimp on the fabulousness of their clothing! That was fun.
