Book Review - "Married 'til Monday"

Book Description from the publisher:

With a big anniversary party in the works for her parents, Ryan will pretend to be Abby's husband for just one last weekend.
Ryan McKinley has tried to move on from his ex-wife, Abby. He's sulked, he's gotten angry, and ultimately he bought her dream house. Big mistake. Living alone in the massive 2-story has only made him miss her more. When her parents call him out of the blue about their anniversary party in Summer Harbor, Maine, Ryan believes God has dropped a golden opportunity straight in his lap.
Abby McKinley never exactly told her parents about the divorce. A strained relationship with her dad has culminated in a distant relationship with her parents, but she's finally succumbed to her mom's pressure to make the drive for their 35th-anniversary party.
Then Ryan shows up on her doorstep, looking as devastatingly handsome as ever. When he insists he's going to Seabrook, with or without her, Abby knows she can't say no. Her parents still think they're married and now Ryan knows it too. Besides, he only wants to check in with his best friend from college-her cousin Beau, who just lost his dad. It's just a one-week road-trip with the man who broke her heart. What could possibly go wrong?

My Review:
I read this book in one sitting, it was THAT good!  I absolutely loved this entire series and now after reading the final book, Ryan is my favorite hero from the four books.  Ryan played a role in the other books of the series and he was the brother, the brooding brother with an ex-wife that no one really knew what had happened.  At the end of book 3 more is shared as he buys the dream house of his ex-wife and moves in.  Ryan has been living the past three years alone, missing Abby and not really understanding completely what happened.  Suddenly one day he receives a phone call and his world is tilted once more and he realizes he is being given a second chance with the woman he fell in love with.  This is such a sweet story, but it also addresses some tough topics as well which are handled well and add a deeper element to the story making the characters even more real.  I was sad to see this series end, but love that Denise introduced the town and few characters for her upcoming series in this book.  I highly recommend this book and entire series - Denise Hunter is a must-read author!
