Kitchen Promises, the final book in the Riverside Trilogy

I am not happy that this was my least favorite in this trilogy.  I was introduced to Brooke Cumberland with the first book in this trilogy, and I was hooked!  I love Brooke!  She is a wonderful author!  This book, however, didn't do much for me.
I don't know why, but this book almost felt forced.  It lingered too much into Molly's pregnancy.  I feel there should have been less on her hormones and pregnancy in the beginning.  Reading sooo much about her bed rest and restlessness was a bit daunting and hard to get through.
Now once the good drama started, then I was all in.  That was the saving grace for this book!  I was hooked and wanted more of the drama.  This should have been the focus for the majority of this story!  My rating would have been much higher if it had!
There is no denying the characters in this story.  We love Drake.  We Love Molly.  We love Michael.  We don't like Denny.  Yes.  There always has to be an antagonist in a story like this... there is one in each book in this trilogy.
I am happy and sad to see this story end.  It was a great ending to the story.  The series, as a whole, is a must read!  I will not deny that!
