My rating: 3 of 5 stars

After a heartbreaking tragedy in Kate’s life she finds herself lost and not knowing how to move forward or deal with her pain. When she comes across Martha one day by chance the two find that they are inexplicably drawn to one another. Both are hiding their past and not wanting to confront their nightmares. The two form a bond and friendship and begin to heal each other.

First I’d like to say this is a really great book, well written and I believe it will be very well liked as some of the earlier reviews are showing. However there were a few things that kept me personally from rating a bit higher and can almost hear the boos from me giving it three stars.

To start with I did find it a bit slow moving in the beginning. Not too terribly much but once I found myself a few chapters in I pretty much figured out the basics of the entire story from there and in the end it did turn out the way I’d expected so that’s a tad disappointing to work it out so early on.

Another thing bringing my rating down a bit more was a disconnect with Matthew and how he handled early events in the book. Having personal experience with certain situations and a lifetime of debates and discussions I just had a personal dislike for some of his actions that I don’t think are going to bother most but made me dislike him to start and didn’t get as drawn into the story that I would have liked otherwise.

Last Kiss Goodnight is still a read that I would recommend checking out. Heartbreaking and heartwarming all wrapped into one in the story. One to have tissues on hand but also be prepared to laugh.

I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    • Thanks Christine, it is a really good book so I think you’ll enjoy it. Just a bit of a personal dislike for a situation brought my rating a bit further down than others reading it but didn’t want to give spoilers to over explain that either. 🙂
