This was the final book in the Bride Quartet series, and it was a very fond farewell to the books. Things between Parker and Malcolm seemed too pat, too perfect, and where you would expect them to have a passionate fight on Mal's side of the issue, he surprises the reader by doing the same freeze out that Parker does. Made for a sweeter read, rather than a passionate one. I liked seeing how all the couples ended up and how the housekeeper tied it all together at the end. It was a good ending!
