Review by Jill Williamson

This is a three-books-in-one volume that contains the final books in the Christy Miller tale. I’ve given a review of each story below.

Book 1: Until Tomorrow
Christy, Todd, and Katie travel Europe together, and Christy wonders if she and Todd are going to grow closer or farther apart.

This book made me laugh. Traveling for three weeks in Europe sounds like so much fun, but Robin Jones Gunn showed a more realistic side of such an adventure. Confusion, fatigue, hunger, awe, and running out of money! The trip was worth it for the characters and me, though. Fun story.

Book 2

As You Wish
Christy is back in Southern California attending the same college as Todd and Katie. She’s never had so much time to spend with Todd before, and now that he’s told her he loves her, Christy struggles over whether or not to say it back.

Finally! Christy and Todd get to spend some real time together on a regular basis. After so many books, this is what we’ve all been waiting for! I loved seeing Christy wonder over her relationship with Todd. I say what I’ve said all along. This is a GREAT series for teen girls. And this book in particular is perfect for girls contemplating true love. One of my favorite Christy books!

Book 3

I Promise
Christy and Todd discover some major differences between them which cause Christy to question whether or not they’re right for each other.

*SPOILERS* Another fabulous book for girls wondering if they’ve found “true love.” Christy and Todd work through a lot of things about each other and come out okay in the end. But this book will give readers a glimpse of a more realistic happily-ever-after as Christy and Todd go through pre-marital counseling and survive the coming together of their extended families. It’s a satisfying end to the series. A standing ovation for Robin Jones Gunn. Loved this series!
