Evet mart ayının 2'sinde başladığım Şeftali Kokan Bir Aşk'ı tam 25 gün sonra bitirebildim. Şimdi sanmayın ki kitap berbattı da ben bitiremedim. Kitap çok güzeldi allahım allahım aşığım bu seriye ama tabi ben reading slump karışımı bir durumun içinde olduğum için Şeftali Kokan Bir Aşk'ı bu kadar uzzzunn bir sürede bitirebildim. Halbuki incecik bir kitap her neyse tabi. Kitap muazzam idi ya. Serinin bitmiş olması üzdü doğrusu. Sizi özleyeceğim çocuklar...

Bu seri en sevdiğim serilerden biri oldu. Bir şekilde neden bilmiyorum karakterlere kendimi çok yakın hissettim. Şu an seriyi bitirmiş oldum ve gerçekten kendimi çok üzgün hissediyorum bitmesini istemiyorum.

Recommends it for: People who read the other two books in the "Peaches" trilogy
When I was walking around in my local Barnes and Noble one day to find my next advisory book, I walked over to the new releases table and saw "Love and Peaches", by Jodi Lynn Anderson and got very excited. I was happy because I read the other two books in this series, "Peaches" and "The Secrets of Peaches" and was not aware that Anderson was releasing a third book in the series. This series revolves around a group of three main girls: Leeda, Birdie and Murphy whose experiences on Birdies ...more

This book was the third book in the Peaches series. The three friends come back home for the summer to see each other. Leeda inherits $500,000 and 25 mini horses from her dead grandmother, Birdie gets engaged, and Murphy finds out that her father is Judge Abott. Many things happen to them, and they all realize that they're not really happy and they need to stop pretending to be something they're not.
I can connect this to the Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants. In that series, there are four frie

I've loved these books for how real they feel, how they don't shy away from the real complications of life to tie things up in a neat bow. This book felt a little more like an effort to tie things in a bow as the concluding volume, but it kept things messy and some of the twists really impressed me.

There's more emphasis on Leeda in this book. She is the least developed character of the three--or maybe her personality is just that she doesn't know who she is. Her development in this book is inte
There's no question Jodi Lynn Anderson can write, but I can't help but feel like this one was written mostly to have closure (though if you're looking for HEAs, ha ha hahaha). I think I would have preferred this series to have been a duology. However, Murhpy, Birdie and Leeda are some of the realest, most confused characters I've ever met, which doesn't always make it fun to read about them, but I think there should be more characters/stories like those Anderson writes. Though purely out of ...more

This is a wonderful addition to the Peaches trilogy...(It may even be my favorite!) It kept me interested throughout and it sucked me in as Anderson's other books have. I felt like I was one of the characters and the book was a movie playing out in my mind. The book goes deeper than simply discussing friends and family from a small town but also covers topics such as love, loss, life struggles, responsibility, strength, passion, and self-esteem! The book is very well written. I would recommend ...more

If you liked the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants books, you'll like these--this is the third and final book in a trilogy. It is YA, though--there's some talk about sex, though it's handled tastefully (again, as in Brasheres's books). But these Peaches books are strong in their own right, especially this last volume. The characters grow, not in the predictable way people usually do in books, but in the uneven, complex ways they do in real life, with just as many questions as answers. Plus ...more

An improvement on the second, but still not as devourable as the first, I liked this book. (view spoiler) I liked that the girls finally figured out who they were and what they were destined to do - though I wouldn't mind a follow-up, just to see how the girls are in adulthood!
Ett värdigt slut på en bra trilogi.

Det jag irriterar mig på i den här boken är missarna i översättning eller korrektur. Förstår inte riktigt hur en person helt plötsligt kan få ett annat namn från en bok till en annan, och det är inte bara en person det gäller heller.

Un trilogie bien mignonne qui redonne le sourire. En tant que grande fan de Quatre filles et un jean étant gamine, retrouver cet esprit m'as donné du baume au coeur.

I didn't really like the book. It was OK. When I looked into the book it looked good but I didn't really know what it was going to be good or bad but know I know to read the back or first page.

I didn't like the book it wasn't what I was looking for.

Lire un tome de la saga des Pêches, c’est un peu retrouver une famille lointaine, celle qu’on ne croise qu’une fois par an mais qu’on ne manquerait pour rien au monde et avec qui on se sent bien.

Depuis Peau de Pêche, les filles ont bien grandi.
C’est déjà leur troisième été au verger et elles ont commencé à faire des études loin de Darlington et son verger.

Du coup, celles qu’on retrouve sont bien éloignées de celles qu’on a quittées.

Celle qui a le moins changé, c’est Murphy. Toujours aussi pénibl

I thought the book Love and Peaches was good. It wasn't my favorite book of all time but it was good. I thought the author Jodi Lynn Anderson did a good job of writing it. I didn't know the book Love and Peaches was a series, I just picked the book out and started reading it. The book caught my attention in the first chapter and the chapters were fairly short that's why I kept reading the book. Towards the middle of the book I got I thought it got a little boring but Jodie caught my attention. ...more

Love and peaches is the last in the amazing trilogy peaches. It's all about the final decisions of the girls, and where they will end up. Leeda will find a new love, some secrets about her grandmom, and a forgoten love for animals. And one of the girls will find out that maybe New York isn't the place for them.

This book is about three girls that grew up together and now are in college. They go back to their hometown in Bridgewater, Georgia where they catch up with friends and family. Throughout this book we watch these girls fall in love and fall out of love. As you continue to read this book you see that each character hits rock bottom in their own way, and all of them deal with their issues in a different manner.

I normally read books that are love stories or that are adventurous. But I'm going to h
Just like the other two in the Peaches series - I liked it, it was a decent read, but I'm neutral about it.

This installment felt more like it was all about Leeda's personal growth. I said in my review for The Secrets of Peaches and I'll say it again... I despise Leeda. Yes, there was some Birdie development and Murphy coming to her senses, too, but it just felt like it was all Leeda.

As far as Murphy coming to her senses; I'm not completely convinced. It just broke outside of her character. I gue

The third Peaches book by Jodi Lynn Anderson will be well-liked by fans of the previous books and can also function decently as a stand-alone for those unfamiliar with the series. The girls are back in town after their first year of college and are enjoying one last summer with the peaches.

Though I enjoyed this book, everything felt a little bit too familiar; The plot felt a little recycled. There was the same old "I like him but can't let myself feel anything serious" Murphy/Rex drama, Leeda ne

Murphey, Leeda and Birdie have all started out the lives they've always wanted, Murphey and Leeda are both in New York and Birdie is New Mexico. But even though they thought it would be all fun and games, Murphey misses Rex like crazy but has too much pride to admit it, Leeda still feels the emptiness inside of her even though she has Eric, her new boyfriend and she's finally in New York and Birdie is more confused than ever concerning her relationship with Ericardio.

It had been a few years since I read Peaches and Secrets of Peaches, the first two books in this series. Therefore, it took a while to get my brain on-track with the story: Remembering where Leeda, Murphy, and Birdie had ended up, and what events had transpired to leave them where they ended.

With that said, I enjoyed this book a lot more than Secrets of Peaches! I thought it was a wonderful ending to the series, with each girl not only finding a place, but finding herself in the process. I comme

Un petit bonheur ? Retrouver Birdie, Murphy et Leeda pour un dernier été. Cette trilogie n'est sûrement pas ma préférée, mais je dois dire qu'elle me colle à la peau et qu'elle m'a offert des petits moments hors du temps dans un monde chaleureux. On retrouve le verger, les pêches, et toute cette ambiance si agréable qui fait l'intérêt des livres.

Love and Peaches by Jodi Lynn Anderson is a fantastic book and I would recommend it to everyone.I gave this book 5 stars. It was a well-written and interesting book that can inspire teenagers while keeping them very entertained as well. The theme of the book is about being true to who you really are. Many people has difficult problems in their live that they wants to not face it, problems like love or family, but this book teach and helps people learn about life.

Even though I had all three books, I somehow spaced out and read this book as if it were the second in the series. No matter - the author did a fabulous job of bringing the reader into the lives of all three main characters (Murphy, Leeda, and Birdie) who are in their first year of college. I loved the various settings and the steady stream of interesting secondary characters. You never know where life's twists and turns will take you, as this book clearly shows. But strong friendships can be ...more
