The Agreement is the fourth book in the Marcy Series by Linda Burson. The series has a continuing storyline, so it would not be advisable to read this story without first reading the other three books. The more this story/series continues to evolve, the more in awe I am at just how well thought out, and superbly written, this entire series/storyline really is. Ms. Burson once again has infused her story with just the right amount of suspense, drama, dilemmas, emotion, humour, and believability to really keep things interesting. We once again witness these wonderfully complex and likeable characters traversing some of the complications that occur in relationships, their interactions are realistic and relatable- but Ms. Burson also throws in a few surprises that had me on the edge of my seat to find out how things would play out. The characters have really come a long way since we met them in book one, and I have enjoyed watching them develop and grow over the course of the series so far. But just because Marcy and Brad are now married, had their honeymoon, and welcomed their baby into the world- doesn’t mean things will be smooth sailing from here on out. This story sees their relationship tested, and choices will need to be made. A new friendship is formed, which also brings unexpected developments and changes.
As with all her books that I have read, Ms. Burson really writes incredibly well, pulling you into the story and keeping you hooked right through to the end. And again, I really lost myself in this fabulous story (in a good way). For me, that is the sign of a skilled writer. I have really enjoyed this series so far, each book slightly eclipsing the previous instalment.
As I have come to expect from Ms. Burson, this story has a great pace and is easy to read, it evolves beautifully and unexpectedly the further into the story/series I go. I can’t wait to discover what she has planned for Marcy, Brad and the overall storyline…
Bring on the next book!
Thank you, Ms. Burson!
