Annie Duncan has never put much stock in true love. Sure, she loves dating, but she gets more than her share of drama working as a struggling actress—she can live without the romantic kind, thank you very much.

Instead, Annie focuses her energy on her two best friends, Jen and Ginny. And now that she finally appears to be getting her big break, Annie couldn’t be happier wi

Eh, this one didn't set my hair on fire. Annie and her dilemma was lame to me. She has the opportunity to become a big time actress, but you know love is the answer. I loathe romance books that do this mess with heroines. It also didn't really line up with what Annie wanted for herself either. And it doesn't say a lot about her friends and love interest if that she needs to give up what she wants to be in a relationship.

This was so boring. You know a book isn't good when you're waiting anxiously for it to end. I actually enjoyed Annie in the other books and thought her story might be good but she was just very unpleasant and negative in this one. Also, the ending just felt very out of place and surreal.

This was my least favorite in this series. Annie is a very unhappy person so the tone of the book isn't nearly as light hearted as the others. There were also several misspelled words, or wording errors, which I personally find as a distraction. ("I grabbed him by him arm," etc). I wasn't thrilled with even finishing the book but yet wanted to do so purely because it was part of a series, and I had enjoyed the two prior books. If you're feeling obligated to read it for that reason, don't waste y ...more

*fist pump* Yes! Yes! Yes! I was so happy to get this one. I received a really early version in order to beta read...but busy holidays and a rush by Rachel Schurig meant I missed it. But yesterday I figured I'll read it anyway and review it. Luckily my Nook allows me to read word documents...only I can't make any notes or changes and it doesn't remember where I'm at if I close it at anytime.

Regardless of my issues with Microsoft and Nook, I was hooked. Even though I was

I really enjoyed this book, which is no surprise because I enjoyed the first two immensely. I wish that this was not the last in the series; over the past three days I have become very attached to Ginnie, Jen, Annie and even Kiki. Maybe some day Danny will have his own book and we'll get to see the girls again as supporting characters. I can only hope. =D ...more

Annie loves to act, she works for a small theatre company in Detroit but lately her jobs been boring and all she’s being doing is paperwork. She gets a chance to audition for a big time Hollywood producer who is putting on a play. She auditions but while waiting for call backs, her friends end up going to Vegas where she meets Nate. She assumes it’s going to be a what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas type deal. Only Nate is also living in Detroit and wants to continue his relationship with Annie ...more

Whilst I couldn’t really identify with the main character, Annie, I enjoyed the story. My favourite part was the “Christmas tree” part. Totally romantic even if a bit cheesy, but apt for the hero’s character.
I loved reading more about the other girls partners and continue their lives... the little yellow house was a nice consistent feature of the series.

Honest Friends

I was impressed by the deep and honest the 3 friends have maintained through the years. They are their own persons, but they know how to both support and confront one another as needed. I loved the strong values the young actress held to when she was faced to choose between fame and family.

I just haven't liked Annie through the whole series of books. She comes off as a mean, brittle, nasty person. The ending doesn't fit who she's been built up to be through the other books.

I won't be finishing this series.

Enjoyed the third one in the series

After reading the previous two books I was excited to read the third and it didn't disappoint. It was nice to find out more about Annie and I enjoyed the Vegas part as it made me think of my honeymoon and how much fun it was visiting there

There’s not much to say about this book, as I have read all five books in the ‘Three Girls’ range and really enjoy them, but they are all fairly similar with the same characters throughout. I found that this book wasn’t as interesting as the others, perhaps because I find Annie a little dull as a character, and all the talk about acting and drama very unappealing, as it is so far away from my interests. I love that you are able to get to know the three girls really well throughout the series, bu ...more

This was my least favorite of Schurig's books in this series.

Annie is the last single roommate of Jen and Ginny's - Ginny is now married and moving out, and Jen now has Matt (from Three Girls and a Wedding). Annie is trying to figure out her life - she hates her job at the theater, she's paid very little, and she's single. When an opportunity comes up to audition for a major part in a theatrical production, she jumps on it - but before she gets the part she meets a guy and hits it off. Annie has

I enjoyed this book just like the rest of the books I've read so far in the series but I felt like I had to deduct a star because of this paragraph that annoyed me:

"Are you the type of girl who always puts her girlfriends first? While those relationships should be precious to you, it is essential that you learn to put your man first. No self-respecting gentleman wants to play second fiddle to your female friends! --- The Single Girls Guide to Finding True Love"

I'm sorry but this is full of shit.

In this third installment of the Three Girls series, the spotlight is on Annie. Now that both of her besties (Jen and Ginnie) are settled into relationships, Annie is the only single one. An aspiring actress, being single never bothered Annie before. In fact, she preferred to keep her relationships with men casual unlike her more sappy buddies. We find out in this installment that it's really fear that is holding Annie back from falling in love. Watching her mother lose herself after her father ...more

Now this one was my least favorite of the four. It wasn’t bad by any means, but when faced with a group of girls, there will always be one that you don’t like as much as the other. Annie was it for me, and this is her story and I still loved it.

Annie has a bit of a chip on her shoulder. She’s a bit of a bitch, a lot of the time. But I was able to see deep down to the root of it, and understand where she got this attitude. Doesn’t mean I liked it, but I was genuinely happy to see her story final

Overall, I really am enjoying this series and I did just in fact, but the fourth book to start reading. But, in comparison to the first two books, I am only giving this one three stars instead of four. Why? Because I couldn't relate to Annie the way I did with Ginny and Jen. More specifically, I couldn't sympathize with her because I was more annoyed with her emotions than anything. Her general demeanor and closed off personality really made me dislike her (even though I can remember how in the ...more

It was wonderful to get a look at Annie. I loved going through her emotional journey.

Since this is the last book in the 'Three Girls' series I just want to say that this series is wonderful. I first found the series through finding 'Three girls and a baby' & out of all the free kindle books I have, it's the only one I have actually read. I loved it & bought the second, then this one. I love them all. I love the characters, I love the stories. I'm just sad it's over! I know Kiki will be getting h

I read this book as part of Three Girls: the Complete Trilogy.

Annie is the most sarcastic of the three girls, so I enjoyed her personality quite a bit. She's working a crappy job in a local theatre when she gets a leading part in a play. At the same time, she takes a trip to Vegas and meets a guy who just happens to live near her. So now we see Annie try to balance her career with a relationship that she's unsure about. I liked reading about her struggles, and at times I wanted to strangle her f
This book is the third and last in the series and focuses on Annie. I have to say of the three books, this was my least favorite. Where I loved the other two books and loved Ginny and Jen, I just didn't get Annie and frankly I really didn't like her. She really was a bitch and I didn't sympathize with her or her background while I did with Ginny and Jen. I liked Nate and actually had to wonder why he would even put up with her. Didn't feel the connection between the two either. I still would hig ...more

I wasn't sure I would like this one since Annie was my least favorite of the girls, but it was fun. Since I've lived in Vegas, I was a little annoyed with some of that part of the book (there is no humidity in Vegas -- it would not be a problem for the hair... and no one has EVER "zipped down the Strip" through the bumper-to-bumper traffic all day and night long). But I quibble. Anyhow, this is a nice story and I'm glad to have read it. ...more

Another cute story. Lighthearted reading, nothing too serious or heavy, which is nice. Good beach reading material. Everything wrapped up in this book, I think there is a 4th book in this series, but not sure I feel compelled to buy it. I feel like the story for this group of friends has wrapped up and I'm ready to move on to something else. ...more

Three Girls and a Leading Man. The series continues with Annie's story. One of the reasons I love this series is that I can identify with so many aspects of their lives. The theatre, hometown values, picking out Christmas trees, the places they visit and most importantly, the core value of family and friends. ...more

This book was cute, but was my least favorite in the trilogy. Annie wasn't very likeable, in my opinion, in the first two books so since this book was in her perspective, I didn't think it was as good as the others. Still a quick read. ...more

Predictable, dreary and the worst one in the series...I just couldn't believe Annie's storyline, it seemed fake.

Rounds everything off and ties it up nicely but a little too heavy on the cliches for my liking.
