Last Day by Luanne Rice **Book Review**

Happy weekend bibliophiles!

Do you like a good who done it with a beautiful setting? Then this is the book for you!🖼🌼

My Thoughts

Murder, Family secrets, infidelity, betrayal, friendship, and a tragic past. This was a who done it with a whole Lot of suspects. What I liked best about this story was the relationship between the sisters and how their past tragedy had ties to the current murder. The bulk of the story is told from the perspective of Kate and while I did like her she wasn’t easy to get to know. This was a story that kept me guessing… Red herrings, miss directions, loads of secrets, and plenty of suspects. The setting of the book added a lot of intrigue to the story. I was completely hooked until the very end and then I was kind of let down. The ending while it caught me completely by surprise, I cannot for the life of me figure out why this person behave the way they did?

About the Book

SYNOPSIS: From celebrated New York Timesbestselling author Luanne Rice comes a riveting story of a seaside community shaken by a violent crime and a tragic loss.

Years ago, Beth Lathrop and her sister Kate suffered what they thought would be the worst tragedy of their lives the night both the famous painting Moonlight and their mother were taken. The detective assigned to the case, Conor Reid, swore to protect the sisters from then on.

Beth moved on, throwing herself fully into the art world, running the family gallery, and raising a beautiful daughter with her husband Pete. Kate, instead, retreated into herself and took to the skies as a pilot, always on the run. When Beth is found strangled in her home, and Moonlightgoes missing again, Detective Reid can’t help but feel a sense of déjà vu.

Reid immediately suspects Beth’s husband, whose affair is a poorly kept secret. He has an airtight alibi—but he also has a motive, and the evidence seems to point to him. Kate and Reid, along with the sisters’ closest childhood friends, struggle to make sense of Beth’s death, but they only find more questions: Who else would have wanted Beth dead? What’s the significance of Moonlight?

Twenty years ago, Reid vowed to protect Beth and Kate—and he’s failed. Now solving the case is turning into an obsession . . .

A Hope for Emily by Kate Hewitt @bookouture *Book Review*

Happy Friday all!

You guys this book was so good, but so heartbreaking!💔

My Thoughts

Poignant, thought provoking, heartwrenching, agonizing.This book left me completely shattered! Kate Hewitt’s books should come with a box of tissue and this one should have come with two! She really knows how to pull at the heartstrings. I felt so much for these characters their pain was palpable. Rachel’s five-year-old daughter Emily is in a coma, suffering from a degenerative neurological disease with no true diagnosis. Emily was born a healthy little girl who could walk and talk and play and laugh. Then at approximately 3 ½ she started having headaches and seizures. This led to countless doctors appointments and hospital visits. It also led to the unraveling of Rachel‘s marriage. But through it all Rachel stands strong and never gives up hope for her little girl.

As a mom I could not help but put myself in Rachel’s position, that’s what led to tears flowing down my face at 4:30 in the morning. How do you give up hope? How do you say goodbye? How do you let go? And then how do you MoveOn? The story is told from the perspectives of both Rachel and Eva who is Rachel‘s ex-husband‘s new wife. The bond that these women formed was remarkable. I’m not even certain I always 100% agreed with their actions, but the pole of motherhood is strong. This is one of those books that really makes you think, what would you do if you were in this situation? I don’t think however you could ever know how you would react unless you’re living it(and let’s hope none of us ever have to go through this). this was a beautifully told story about motherhood, friendship, tough choices, and above all hope.

Hope sees the invisible, feels the intangible, and achieves the impossible. Helen Keller

*** Big thank you to Bookouture for my gifted copy of this book. All opinions are my own. ***

About the Book

Looking back, I wish I could find my way back to that moment. I’d snatch it and hold onto it and live in it for the rest of my life, if I could. When Emily could still throw her arms around me. Oh God, just give me that moment, or one like it again. That’s all I want.

From the moment Emily was born, reaching out with her tiny little star-shaped hand towards her mother, blinking with long eyelashes over soft blue eyes, she became Rachel’s whole world.

But Rachel’s worst nightmare comes true when a rare auto-immune illness leaves five-year-old Emily in a coma the doctors say she may never come out of. And Rachel has to make a heartbreaking decision—one that her ex-husband, Emily’s dad James, doesn’t agree with.

Terrified she’s going to lose her daughter for good, Rachel knows she must find a way to keep the hope alive for Emily. But there is only one person she can turn to for help to convince James—his new wife, Eva.

As an unlikely but powerful friendship develops between the two women, both Rachel and Eva will have to ask themselves—what is truly the right choice for the tiny, fragile little girl who lies between them?

A beautiful story that will break your heart into a million pieces, perfect for fans of Jodi Picoult, Diane Chamberlain and Susan Lewis.
