    Ah, I could read this book over and over again and never get tired of it. I love his book as the finale of the series So Close to You. Wes and Lydia's relationship makes me squeal and swoon again and again. I love this book, the character development, character relationships, and the grilling plot line.

    Oh. My. Gosh. This book was wonderful, amazing, fantastic, and stunning. All I can say that Wes and Lydia are meant to be together. I have read this book three times in less than a year and all in one day. I could survive if this was the only book left on earth.

    This book was a perfect finish to the So Close to You series. I finished the second book a little unsure at how the author would fix Wes and Lydia's relationship, but the way she slowly developed them made me hopeful for them to get back together over the course of this book. Lydia's character shined in this book, as she was independent, carefree, and strong. I enjoyed reading the several events and time periods that they traveled, and was pleasantly surprised at how the ending turned out. I am This book was a perfect finish to the So Close to You series.

    4.5 HEARTS on www.heatherheartsbooks.com I stumbled across Rachel Carter's So Close to You trilogy pretty haphazardly last summer. I hadn't read the first book in the trilogy (So Close to You), but the second book, This Strange and Familiar Place, was available for autograph at BEA 2013, where I met Rachel Carter. Rachel is one of the sweetest and kindest authors I met there and still one of the nicest I've ever met. I was still a very green blogger then, but she immediately showed interest in my 4.5 HEARTS on www.heatherheartsbooks.com I stumbled across Rachel Carter's So Close to You trilogy pretty haphazardly last summer. I hadn't read the first book in the trilogy (So Close to You), but the second book, This Strange and Familiar Place, was available for autograph at BEA 2013, where I met Rachel Carter. Rachel is one of the sweetest and kindest authors I met there and still one of the nicest I've ever met. I was still a very green blogger then, but she immediately showed interest in my blog, even though I was so new that I hadn't even thought to bring business cards. I really hadn't read a lot of true sci-fi YA books until I came home and purchased So Close to You. There just weren't a lot of them that interested me. But the closet-Trekkie in me loved the concept of this book: playing with time machines, the space-time continuum, trying not to mess up the timeline or alter the course of eternity, the butterfly effect; it all fascinated me. The best part of the series is that it had a great pace. The subject matter could've allowed it to stall out or seem boring, but there is a ton of action, a lot of mystery, and a ton of historical significance. Plus, I'm a sucker for a good conspiracy theory. Rachel really did her research for these books. And it sparked in me a real interest in this topic, which pushed me to do a little research myself -- and the results were a little frighteningly real, which made reading the books all the more pulse-pounding. I could envision this as a reality. This Strange and Familiar Place left off with a real bizarre cliffhanger, one that left me both angry at the leading male character, Wes, but also hopeful for his relationship with main character Lydia, who was forced to join dispicable Montauk Project in order to keep her grandfather alive. I can say easily -- and without spoiling anything -- that this book lived up to the high expectations set in the first two books. It was even more exhilarating than the first two and it was extremely hard to put down. I finished the last 75 pages in under 20 minutes, which is fast, even for me. It's hard to go into detail without spoiling a lot, which I don't want to do -- I want you all to go out and read every book in this series. But I can say that Rachel did a great job of bringing her readers back up to speed and reminding them of the incidents that happened in the previous books without it feeling like she was just regurgitating word for word what happened in the past. It was quick, snappy, and helpful, and not at all a waste of paper or time. As I mentioned before, there was a big cliffhanger at the end of This Strange and Familiar Place. There were some major roadblocks and issues between Lydia and Wes. And I HATE when the following book starts off dealing with the cliffhanger and then settles it in just a few pages. It makes both books seem inauthentic and it makes the cliffhanger from the previous book seem like a cheap way to draw you in. This was NOT the case with Find Me Where the Water Ends. It dealt with the very real issues that Lydia and Wes faced and the fact that these were big setbacks for them emotionally and for their relationships, romantic and professoinal. Rachel took the appropriate time to deal with the magnamity of these events -- not too short, but not so long that it became the entire focus of the book. It was realistic and thoughtful. I also really liked the ending. I was hoping throughout the book that they would find a way to get both Lydia and Wes back to her original timeline, though I knew halfway through This Strange and Familiar Place that it was extremely unlikely and again, would've cheapened the book with an inauthentic ending that was too happily ever after for characters who'd traveled through time so much and were dealing with those ramifications. But even though I hoped there might be an unexpected way to get there, I really liked the actual ending because it was the next best thing and it really was the most realistic and unique approach. It was bold, brave, and still allowed Lydia to remain connected to her family tree. The conclusion for trilogy was really awesome and it earned 4.5 hearts from me. I would not be surprised come January if it is on my list of the top 14 books of 2014.

Opening Sentence: The dress is laid out on the bed, so dark red it looks black in the muted light of the hotel room. The Review: Seventeen year old Lydia Bentley never saw herself becoming a recruit for the Montauk Projects, but when they threatened the people she holds most dear in her life she agrees to do whatever they say. They keep telling her that this is her destiny and that the mission she is supposed to complete will change history forever. She is forced to do things she never thought possible and if she wants to survive she will have to learn to trust the one person that broke her heart. Lydia hates the Projects and everything they have taken away from her. But she is just one of many that have had their life destroyed by the evil people that run the Montauk Project. When she is offered an opportunity to live in a world without the projects she jumps at the chance. But nothing in this world comes without consequences, and Lydia’s not sure she can live with herself if she loses anyone else she loves. Lydia has grown enormously since the last time we saw her. She has been training to be a Project recruit for the last 9 months and not only has she changed physically, she has also changed emotionally. The training was vigorous and everything she has ever cared about has been taken away. But even though she has been through so much she is still essentially the same person. Perhaps she is a little bit more cynical, and not quite as naive as she once was, but she is still a good person that tries to do the right thing. I admired her strength and determination to never give up no matter how hard things get. My original connection with her was easily reestablished and just continued to grow throughout the entire series. I loved her character and I am sad to see her story end. Wes is just as mysterious as ever and if it is possible, I fell even more in love with him. From the very first book I was drawn to him with his striking good looks and interesting life. He is a person you can rely on for anything and even though there are times when he will break your heart, getting to know him was totally worth it. He proves time and times again how dedicated he is to Lydia and I just loved him all the more for it. The chemistry between these two is electric and their romance is very believable. I think that Wes made the perfect love interest and I am glad I got to read his story! First off, I have to say how much I adore the titles for the books in this series. I mean how awesome is the title Find Me Where the Water Ends? Plus, it actually goes perfectly with the book. But not only does it have a great title it was also an phenomenal story that was the perfect ending to this magnificent series! From the moment I picked up this book, I was completely hooked and couldn’t put it down until I finished it! It was action packed from page one and entertaining the whole way through. I also felt a slew of emotions while reading it which helped me really connect with the story. Carter has wonderful writing that is captivating and breathtaking! Sadly, this is the end of the series, but I will gladly read whatever Carter comes out with next. I would highly recommend this series to anyone that is looking for a stunning time travel story filled with romance and action! Notable Scene: She jerks the wheel to the left and the car angles so quickly that it seems we will flip over. MY stomach drops as if we were on a roller coaster, the very moment of descent. Time grips my hands in his as I squeeze my other one into the battered leather seat, trying to hold on. “On the left!” I hear Wes shout, and then something slams into the side of the car in a blast of noise and sparks and screeching tires. I am thrown forward and feel Tim’s fingers slop away from mine. My body is in the air. My head collides with something hard. I fall back against the seat as the window explodes, as the metal erupts, and my body, just skin and blood and bones, is no match for the force of it. FTC Advisory: HarperTeen provided me with a copy of Find Me Where the Water Ends. No goody bags, sponsorships, “material connections,” or bribes were exchanged for my review.

When you don't need a bookmark, that's a sign of a good book. The futuristic setting was very interesting, with the holograms and traffic grids for cars and computerized contact lenses. Very cool, and the perfect backdrop for more crazy missions and adventures with the Montauk Project. The stakes are really high in this last book. Everything is on the line; Lydia's family, her relationship with Wes, the evil reach of the Montauk Project, and the future of the entire world... it all hangs on Lydia's decisions, and every little action she takes could mean the end. The suspense is horrible/wonderful! There are a couple of death scenes that made me cry my eyes out, and my heart got all broken up in pieces, then slowly stitched back together again through the story. Gah! I can't handle it. I'm still mourning over those beloved people. I'm literally tearing up as I write this. Musn't. Cry. Over. Fictional. Characters. Nope, too late. Waaaaahh!!! Lydia goes through some major changes in this book, and comes close to losing part of herself. I was right there with her the entire time, feeling what she was feeling, going through those difficult situations with her! I just adore her character development through the whole series. Brilliant writing! Wes is finally coming together as a person. That mystery that has shrouded him from the beginning, and made him such an interesting character, begins to be resolved, and his true personality begins to shine out. What a beautiful character! I love him to death. Tim is my new favorite! I loved his relaxed personality, so much in contrast with all the tension and suspense going on in the story. He's a smart, sweet guy, and isn't afraid to risk putting his true self out there to connect with people. He's an incredibly important addition to the story, and changes the whole dynamic of things. I just want to give him a big hug! There was a lot of tension with several supporting characters, both from the Project and from the Rebellion sides. Do we trust them? What are their real motivations? Can they be persuaded to join the good guys, or will they betray us at the first opportunity? Such good story-telling. Really kept me guessing right up to the end. I really hope this author is working on something new, because I could read her stuff all day long!

    A great finish to the series. I enjoyed this exciting and adventurous series. The story gets wrapped up in a satisfying way but, like any good time travel tale, leaves you imagining what would've happened if different choices had been made. I'm excited to see what Rachel Carter does next.

I did read this out of order and there were many references to past episodes. The portrayal of the good old days of the 1950's is as aluering as any conservative could hope for. There is no hot and steamy sex scenes so recommend with aplomb to your budding tweens, but there is plenty of romance. personal critique - Well, I did read it, the whole thing and it was pleasant and entertaining. There was no stretch of the mind, and I did not need to get out the dictionary for new vocabulary. This is chick lit for the young ones, like a gateway book to the hot romance novels and soft porn in their future. illustrations - This is a novel, no pictures. notable awards - Teen choice Book Award nominee, and several other books in this series, so you can read more once you have finished this one.

    This is exactly the ending I wanted. And yet it somehow wasn’t too predictable at all. 👌🏼 As usual, I’m also super impressed by the pacing of this book. So much happened but it never felt rushed; everything got the page time it deserved. And yet I still finished it in a day?? I don’t know how that worked but I’m glad it did. Thanks for giving me the closure I needed, Rachel 💕

    Lydia Bentley has been forced into a position she never thought she'd be in: a recruit of the Montauk Project. The Project is holding her grandfather hostage and trading his continued existence for Lydia's cooperation. Now Lydia has been trained for time traveling and all the danger that may put her in. At the beginning of her first mission, however, she finds that one of the other participants is Wes - the boy who said he loved her but ultimately betrayed her to the Project.

At the beginning of her first mission, however, she finds that one of the other participants is Wes - the boy who said he loved her but ultimately betrayed her to the Project. Lydia doesn't know how she'll be able to work with Wes, whom she still has feelings for, despite her fury. It's pushed aside, though, when the mission veers off-course and the team of recruits is forced to run from the authorities in a future world none of them truly know. Lydia knows that the only way she and the rest of the world will ever really be safe from the Project's meddling is in a world where the Montauk Project doesn't exist. But with no resources and the recruits already turning against each other, Lydia has to focus on just surviving before she can make the world a better place. Ho. Ly. Sh**. I thought the first two books were good, but this one blows the others out of the water. The intensity was ramped up to seventy-nine on a scale of one to ten. Right from the start, I was immersed. Usually, even in a series where I've read the previous books, it still takes me a while to get back into the rhythm of the author's writing. This book started intense and just kept ramping it up. I couldn't stop reading. I literally stayed up past four a.m. to finish it. It wasn't just the situations that made the plot so good, but also the relationships. I mentioned in my review of the previous novel in this series that the seriousness of the relationships were amped up; they were increased even more in this book. Betrayals had to be sorted out, damaging pasts were taken out on other characters, and loyalties had to be decided. My heart has beating so hard and fast I honestly had to take breathing breaks. I loved this story. I also loved how everything from the previous two novels finally ended up connecting. Time travel can be difficult to write about, because it's so what-if, and because of all of the scenarios that have to be considered. Rachel Carter did a phenomenal job of taking clues from every timeline Lydia ever ventured to, and combining them in a way that made sense in relation to who was in which timeline when. I love when I have to actually consider how something occurred in a novel, because it shows just how much effort the author put into creating an intelligent, cohesive plot. I also very much appreciated the ending of this book, which was also the ending of the trilogy. I've read many books where the ending was either overly-ideal, or incredibly frustrating due to problems left hanging or the main character ending up miserable. This ending was the best it could be, really, given the circumstances. Obviously not everything was perfect, but if it had been, it wouldn't have been realistic, and I love realism in stories. But Lydia ended up happy, which is really all you can want for the main character, especially when you've become as invested as I am. And the ending made me cry, both sad and happy tears. Some readers may not like crying over books, but for me, it just really shows me how much I enjoyed the book. This series has definitely been added to my list of favourite books. I will definitely read it again in the future. This series is one of the ones that I recommend to everyone, no matter your favourite genre. Before I read the first book, I didn't think I'd enjoy it because Lydia travelled to the past, and I don't necessarily like time travel or books based in the past. I was proven so wrong. This book deserves a strong rating of five stars. I recommend it for everybody, but especially readers who look for time travel, complicated relationships, and tense situations.

    I said this once. I will say it again. I hate time traveling. So why did I read this book? Well, I already read the previous two books, so I might as well read the last one. And the last two books were pretty good, so I decided to give this book a shot. Because why not? Revealed (by Margaret Peterson Haddix) made my disliking for time traveling almost permanent, but I'm willing to make some exceptions. Also... one more note. The girl in the cover looks very unhealthy. Her arms are way too thin! Se I said this once. I will say it again. I hate time traveling. So why did I read this book?

The girl in the cover looks very unhealthy. Her arms are way too thin! Seriously, she looks more like a skeleton than an actual person by the size of that arm! Okay... now, let's get to the book. Find Me Where the Water Ends is an better than average ending to this trilogy. Well, it is above average when I think about other conclusions to series, trilogies, and other stuff. But for Rachel Carter, I think this book is below expectation. Yes, it is good, but there is some parts where I want to bang some characters' head in the wall. (Mostly Lydia's head, but... I'm not going to argue in this paragraph). The plot is pretty solid, and the timeline is smooth. There is a lot of confusing parts of it, however. The very concept of time creates a really, really gross time paradox. There is conflicting parts, and I know that the rule of time wouldn't allow some of these things to happen... It is crazy... So many paradoxes! Well, mainly one. Now, let's get to Lydia. I'm going to say that Lydia is an idiot at some moments. Okay, correction. She is an idiot at a lot of moments. But I'm not going to explain which moments, because there are some... spoilers in those moments. Now, all of this paragraph sound redundant. Okay. But Lydia is smart at some points and she is actually good. So, I'm only going to bash Lydia's head in the wall because of stupid choices. Other than that, I'm good. Overall, this book is really good, though its performance isn't up to expectations. The series, on its own, it better than average, and I find it easier to understand than those darn time traveling books with too many timelines. It is seriously impossible to keep track of them all. Eh? Got it? Rating: Three out of Five -ofpaperandwords.blogspot.com

A little background for the trilogy; We meet Lydia a young teenager living at home trying to understand with her grandfather how his father many years ago disappeared. This takes her on a long journey through time in which she meets Wes the man she will fall in love with. The first few pages of this novel were a bit confusing for the soul reason that it had been a long time since I had read the second book. But a few chapters in the book was written in a way that sparked the memories of the first two books which was extremely helpful. As I read through the book, it was impossible to put down. The action, the twists and turns, the feels between Lydia and Wes never stopped. Every time I turned a page something bigger happened, this is why I love Carters writing. There were some spots of confusion farther in the book, like when we re-met Tag, Lg, and Nikki because for the life of me I could not remember who they were but as I read on they memories came back to me. I was honestly afraid this book was going to be a sad ending, and for a minute there at the very end I was completely devastated, but everything came through and I could not be happier! These books are my ultimate favorite in the time travel genre and I would recommend them to anyone. Definitely a solid 5 stars.

    While the ending to this series was a bit cliche, I loved it. I had to go to the library in the next town over to borrow this book, but it was well worth it. I'm sad thinking that there won't be any more additions to this series, but I'm excited to see what kind of amazing world the author creates next.

    Find Me Where the Water Ends is that type of book that not only perfectly ties together Lydia's character arc from beginning to end, it's also the type of book that provides important (and occasionally difficult) life lessons on adulthood, and what it means to adjust to what life throws at you.

The Lydia of this book has ambitions and life goals that are very different from the Lydia of the first book, but Carter makes it very clear how Lydia has grown and evolved to this point. There is never the sense that Lydia has lost her dreams, more that she has adjusted her expectations as time has progressed - something that is not only fitting given Lydia's involvement with the Montauk Project, but also a thoughtful idea for readers to mull over. I highly recommend this book for fans of the trilogy (obviously), but also for fans who are looking to dip their toe into science fiction. Carter does a fantastic job of delving readers into a science fiction world, without overwhelming them with ideas and facts. Also, on a personal note: I read So Close to You the day it was released, and have read every book in the trilogy the same way. I've loved seeing how Rachel Carter's writing has evolved over time, and it's abundantly clear in Find Me Where the Water Ends that Rachel is definitely someone who will remain a strong voice in the YA and literary world. *Tips hat to Rachel*

    I was literally on the edge of my bed, computer chair, sofa and my mother's favorite plastic chair as I read and re-read through volume 2 and 3; I was hooked through & through. I love how Carter took advantage of the different timelines and reused the characters, showing them in different eras (throwing me off sometime but that's what made this book enjoyable & unique) and the effort to stay true to the different eras to make this writing more authentic.

The vivid descriptions of the recruits - how dead they appeared to be but gradually revealed & reminded that they R humans, just eats at me. The inhumane nature of the Project reminded me that abuse of human rights & unlawful retention of innocuous kids R far from fiction, & I'm very thankful of the safe environment I've grown up & was nurtured in. My waterworks gave towards the end of volume 3; I seriously thought that was it & the author wanted Lydia to live with it but "Oh, God," it wasn't so bad after all. A movie for this fantabulous series perhaps?

    4.5 stars Oh wow. What a wonderful ending. Lydia has become someone she never wanted to be. But she made due and it did end up helping her in the long run. There was so many revelations as to her role with the Project. That was some craziness! Traveling to the future is mind boggling. To go there to stop something that hasn’t even happened yet. Wowzers. Being in that time period made things interesting when trying not to be noticed. To top that off seeing and learning some things from people you 4.5 stars Oh wow. What a wonderful ending.

It did make Lydia’s choice of what needs to done easier. That itself was a crazy idea. That last time jump had me happy, excited. surprised, anxious, crying sad tears, crying happy tears, and an all around good feeling when I got to the last page.

    I loved this series and this was a great ending to it all. Lydia and Wes are back together, but they are doing things for the project and a murder is the first thing on the list. Lydia learns a lot in this book. About herself, Wes and the Project. There are many times she has to decide whether it is better to stay and try to help things be better, or to go back to the beginning and make sure none of it happens at all. In the end I think she make the best decision and even after the twists and tu I loved this series and this was a great ending to it all.

I highly recommend this great series to anyone who loves to read about time travel and the repercussions of it all.

    A Thousand Years by Christina Perri started playing when I got to the epilogue. It just set the tone for the ending so well! And now I want to cry because it's just so perfect and adorable. Lydia and Wes are trapped in the past, but they're together and happy and Mary got married and it was wonderful! I'm just so happy! This book really had an even better ending than I could have expected. It's just amazing and I love it. All of my favourite characters were featured.

    Actual rating 4.5 I loved everything about this book it was great! It was action packed from the first page and i I was hooked! Carter managed to wrap everything up so beautifully! Wes and Lydia's relationship was perfect and heart warming I loved it to say the least..however with all of that being said some events were so predictable to a point where I couldn't give the book 5 honest stars! Nonetheless I LOVED it!

    The story had an exciting plot all the way through. The characters felt real. The writing was good (but not exceptional). I think what is missing is that, while it was an adventurous plot, the story didn't resonate a fundamental truth within me. In other words, this book was nothing more than great entertainment. I didn't come away with learning something fundamental/groundbreaking. This is an excellent time travel series. I recommend it.

    A great way to end a breathtaking series. There were twists and turns that I never saw coming. Some parts were so intense that I had to put the book down and take a few deep breaths to calm myself down. So amazing, it was well written, delightfully humorous at times, romantic, action packed, and filled with vivid characters both old and new. Great way to finish a spectacular series.

    This was heart felt, the romance Lydia and Wes were striving for to hold on and not lose during the time travel was suspensful! Also trying to make changes during different time of years was fantastic. A must read if you enjoy this kind of read.

    This is a really good book I love the way the series end and how Lydia and wes end up in the 1940's and make it home I can say I hope they will be very happy and I hope mrs.carter will make a series about Lydia and wes's children.

    The best book in the series. Although it lacked the seriousness that should be there when meddling with the time, it sure made up for the happily ever after. full review to come..
