I give this one 5 stars just for the beautiful "extra" details. I loved the voice of the characters, and that this time we get to see letters from Thomas and James as well as the girls. I loved the little details about "domestic disasters." The tone is back to being light and funny; the driving force of this book is not the craziness of the plot or the horrificness (I think I made that word up) of the villains--rather it's the joy of the friendships illustrated through these letters.

I think I also related well to this book right now because a lot of it is about funny domestic things; these are settled married couples, not flighty teenagers or adoring newlyweds. I thought the tone of the letters was right to convey the state of life they're in; they're definitely still the same characters, just a little more grownup.

I may have also enjoyed this one so much because James and Thomas remind me so much of my husband and a couple of his best friends...

Cindy Your review makes me want to go back and re-read this series! ;) I don't think I was married when I read this book...

Shannon Cooley One of my favorite parts about it was when they'd talk about their spouses. It had such a sweet mix of honesty and affection, which is what I strive for in my marriage.
