Blog Tour: The Last Goodbye – Fiona Lucas*

How can you move on if you can’t let go?

Spencer was the love of Anna’s life: her husband, her best friend, her rock. She thought their love would last forever.

But three years ago, Spencer was tragically killed in an accident and Anna’s world was shattered. How can she ever move on, when she’s lost her soulmate?

On New Year’s Eve Anna calls Spencer’s phone number, just to hear his old voicemail greeting. But to her shock, someone answers…

Brody has inherited Spencer’s old number and is the first person who truly understands what Anna’s going through. As her and Brody’s phone calls become lengthier and more frequent, they begin opening up to each other—and slowly rediscover how to smile, how to laugh, even how to hope.

But Brody hasn’t been entirely honest with Anna. Will his secret threaten everything, just as it seems she might find the courage to love again?

My thoughts:

This was a really lovely, moving and sad story of two people struggling with serious grief; needing to move on but unable to fully let go.

Anna rings her late husband’s mobile number, only for someone to answer – the number has been reassigned. So begins a series of conversations with another grief-stricken person, Brody.

As their bond grows stronger, Anna starts to try to move on from her loss, as does Brody. As they heal together, can they find happiness?

Sweet and gentle, this was a lovely book to curl up with and cheer on the two protagonists as they begin the process of finding a new life for themselves.
