Love and The Dream Come True brings to a conclusion the A State of Grace series. It comes full circle on so many of the characters we have seen grow, heal and fall in love. It’s perfect that this last book features musician Cameron, who has been part of so many of the previous books.

Lexie is busy balancing being a mother, helping her cousin renovate a house and work. The reappearance of Cameron Lee, musician, brother of her best friend and childhood (and adult) crush) is unexpected but not unwelcome. In fact, kindling a romance with Cameron is a dream come true and a nice distraction from her daughter’s growing distance. For Cameron, returning to his home town for his sister’s wedding only causes him more anxiety. There are too many mistakes and hurts from the past he’s been running from. With the deadline of choosing music for his new album hanging over his head, the only bright spot if Lexie and her delightful daughter. As Cameron finds himself growing closer to them both, his dreams for the future start to change.

Music, family, love. Love and the Dream Come True is a beautiful conclusion to this series and a beautiful story of romantic love and the love between mother and child. Lexie struggles with her relationship with her daughter, balancing protecting her with giving her space for her growing independence. Cameron’s story is one of coming to terms with his past. Both together and individually, Cameron and Lexie make peace with what haunts them and find a way to move forward.

The publishers provided an advanced readers copy of this book for reviewing purposes. All opinions are my own.
