Love. Marriage. Infidelity. Parenthood. Crises of identity. Death. Cupcakes. The themes in Right Click, the third and final installment in the Click series, couldn't be more pressing for this group of friends as they navigate through their 30's. Another six months have passed since we last eavesdropped on the hilarious, poignant and often times inappropriate email adventures of Renee and friends. As the light-hearted, slice of life story continues to unfold, relationships are tested and some need to be set "right" before everyone can find their "happily ever after."
Renee, a public relations guru with a big heart and an emotional spirit, is engaged to pragmatic and calm Ethan. Shelley, a bold spirit and inventive lover, has moved to Seattle to be with her new love interest, Nick. Renee worries that Shelley will find someone to replace her as her ‘bestie”. Ashley, more of a strict-laced, control type, is coping with being a new mother. Renee realizes that Ashley is having trouble with an infant since children do not fit into control all the time. Mark, the nerdy computer guy, is enjoying his new romance. Renee wants happiness for Mark even if his three lady friends aren’t too fond of Cassidy, the lady who doesn’t know what a capital letter looks like and is enthralled with cat videos.
The year of Renee’s engagement is about to lead to lots of changes for the friends. There are so many real life issues such as infidelity, betrayal, job loss, depression, insecurities and more.
A fun and unique aspect of this series is that it is told entirely through emails. This gives the story a real-time feel as characters express their emotions and opinions in ‘live’, if sometimes delayed, email conversations. The email captions are easy to skim, although they take up reading time if you let Kindle read to you as I often do. I love the pun competition and the musical banter.
This series deals with the everyday lives- difficulties, emotions, up and down - of Renee and her friends. This is book three of the trilogy and does a very nice job of wrapping up the story, the relationships and the connections between the characters. It is lovely to have everyone receive what is anticipated as a “happy ever after” in the end. I do recommend reading the books in order so the reader can get to know the characters and enjoy their growth through the fun developments.
I received this ebook from the author for an honest review.
