Together for another juicy summer, carefree Murphy, perfect Leeda, and big-hearted Birdie return to the place that allowed them to bloom. Brimming with all the charm, humor, and heart of Peaches and The Secrets of Peaches, this satisfying conclusion to Jodi Lynn Anderson's popular series reunites three unlikely best friends for a final sweet farewell.

When Murphy chose New York City, she left her first love behind. Now, a summer in Bridgewater means trading subway trains for pickup trucks and facing the boy she turned her back on.

Leeda expects her trip home to be over faster than her new Manhattan boyfriend can hail a cab—until a surprising inheritance saddles her with a huge responsibility.

Birdie's heart led her all the way to Mexico, and heartbreak brings her back to the orchard. But when the Darlington family decides to leave peach trees for palm trees, Birdie gets a crash course in letting go—and learning when to hold on.

Jodi Lynn Anderson is theNew York Timesbestselling author ofPeaches,Tiger Lily, and the popular May Bird trilogy. She lives in Asheville, N.C., with her husband, her son, and an endless parade of stray pets.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love and Peaches A strong ending to the trilogy, I loved that it included the guys but didn’t revolve around them, it was much more focused on Leeda, Murphy, and Birdie forging their own paths. #plumreview

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Conclusion! I LOVED this series, the entire three books. Love And Peaches is one of the best series conclusions I have ever read. It was a funny, witty, charming and at some points sad tale of friendship, love and heartaches. I don't want to give any spoilers but as you can tell I definitely recommend, not only Love and Peaches, but the entire series. Anderson does a wonderful job writing a series woman of all ages can relate to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heartwarming and as juicy as a peach The final instalment in the Peaches trilogy, Love and Peaches brings three girls together again at the peach orchard that became the foundation for their everlasting friendship. Leeda is a perfect, wealthy girl who is continually under family pressure to act properly, get the best marks in her class, and be successful. Murphy is outgoing and carefree (or as she will only allow people to think). Birdie is impulsive but friendly, as well as the daughter of the owner of the orchard. In the first book, these three girls formed an unlikely relationship while working on the orchard. As the years have gone by, they are in college and have lived lives of their own, but have returned to their hometown for various reasons - Birdie has been engaged but backs out and breaks up with her fiancé; Leeda is obliged to read her grandmother's will; Murphy returns out of nostalgia. Jodi Lynn Anderson weaves a story of interpersonal relationsships, finding ways to deal with the pressures of life, and ultimately finding yourself in the midst of personal confusion. Love and Peaches was certainly an entertaining read. The large cast of characters is well thought-out, and their stories are as juicy as peaches but simultaneously insightful. The symbolism was also quite striking, particularly with the presence of the orchard being such a life-changing aspect of their lives ever since that first summer working together there. It was perhaps a mixture of the juiciness of Gossip Girl (albeit toned-down), the feel-goodness of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, and a touch of philosophical questions about our purpose in life. I would highly recommend this novel to all fans of chick lit and especially those whom have read the previous books in the trilogy. Being labelled in the chick lit genre, though, I doubt many would read the Peaches trilogy for its literary value despite the elegance in which Anderson storytells.
