Independence (Significance #4) by Shelly Crane

Goodreads description:

In the fourth and final installment, Maggie and Caleb must tie up all the loose ends of their lives and make a way to be together completely on their own. With everything that happened with Bish and Maggie's father, she's almost reluctant to move on and move out. And now she must figure out all of this...stuff...with Haddock. But of course, nothing can stay simple for the Jacobsons. Enemies who were thought to be dissolved have decided to not go down so easily. And old flames come calling for more than just Maggie. Caleb is torn between leading his family and personal wants. Maggie is torn between Caleb and being the leader of their people. But neither will let what they need most to be pushed to the wayside. They are determined to make it all work, design a plan toward destiny, and make everything right again for themselves and their family.

And then there's a wedding...


Let me tell you a quick story:

On Saturday night, Dec 15th, 2012 around 11:30pm.  I was sitting on my couch watching TV, when my phone alarmed me that I had an email.  I grabbed my phone (thinking it was spam mail), looked at it and saw that it said this: Shelly Crane Independence ARC.  *insert fangirl scream* I literally woke up my husband because I screamed! I was so excited, I couldn't sleep then.  I grabbed some tissues, a bottle of water and my blanket.  I laid on my couch (because I did not want to disturb my husband, again) and set out to read the final installment of my most favorite series.

I am so glad that I grab the tissues because the tears started right away!  Maybe it was because this was the end of the series, maybe it was just the heartache that Caleb and Maggie just can't catch a break and have a normal day of their lives!

Best part of the book: THE WHOLE BOOK WAS AMAZING!  Maggie and Caleb are still the greatest characters! The book picks up right where Book 3 left off at.  However, Maggie and Caleb just can't catch a break.  Just when we thought they would be able to head home, go to college and get married, another wrench is thrown into the plan.  Then when one problem gets solve another issue arises and it seems like a constant battle to the end.  The one thing that remains the same is Caleb and Maggie's love for each other.  Shelly Crane brought back all the character and each is a significant part of the story.  Of course, Shelly writes like a dream and I was craving more with every turn of the page!

Not so great about the book:  It's over!! *sniff* *hangs head*  I will miss them so much!  However, the plus side is I now have them all and I can continue to visit them whenever I want!

Thank you Shelly Crane for writing an amazing story and series.  You will always have my love and respect!
