Book Review: Did I Mention I Miss You?

Title Did I Mention I Miss You?
Series The DIMILY Trilogy, book 3
Author Estelle Maskame
Release Date December 1, 2016

A year has passed since Eden last spoke to Tyler. She remains furious at him for his abrupt departure last summer but has done her best to move on with her life at college in Chicago. As school breaks up for the summer, she s heading back to Santa Monica, but she s not the only one who decides to come home...

Having been left behind to deal with the aftermath of their bombshell revelation and a family torn apart, Eden has no time for Tyler when he reappears. But where has Tyler been? And is she as over him as she likes to think? Or can Tyler and Eden finally work things out, despite their family and against all the odds?

The explosive finale to Estelle Maskame's international bestselling DIMILY trilogy, and the highly anticipated conclusion to Eden and Tyler's addictive love story.

My review for the first book can be found here. My review for the second book can be found here.

Each book in this series is better than the last. In the first book, I found the characters insufferable. Normally, I can deal with unlikable characters. In fact, I tend to love unlikable characters in books. However, Tyler and Eden were beyond anything I could tolerate in that first book. By the second book, though, I could tolerate them. In fact, by the end, I was rooting for them. My issue with the second book was lack of communication. All I wanted was for the characters to talk. The lack of communication was irritating. Like the second book, though, this was all a thing of the past because by the third book, communication was key. It was glorious.

Tyler and Eden grow and change throughout the series. Wonderful character development, especially for Tyler. Their growth was done in a way that felt natural and realistic rather than forced or fake. Loved it.

Another one of my favorite things that I just have to mention is how Eden handles her dad at the end of this book. Such maturity and couldn't have been done any better. So glad it was written the way it was.

Did I Mention I Miss You? was an absolutely satisfying conclusion to the trilogy. I'm glad that I stuck with it after being rather frustrated with the first book. Estelle Maskame is a wonderfully talented writer and I can't wait to read more from her in the future.
