THE LAST DAY BY LUANNE RICE

CLICK ON IMAGE FOR FULL REVIEW







BOOK DESCRIPTION
From celebrated New York Times bestselling 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 Moonlight goes 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 . . .

MY REVIEW

I don't enjoy books that are full of a lot of romance and sex. I do read a lot of female writers, primarily thrillers, crime, and mystery authors, and enjoy the good ones as much as any of the male writers I read.
This book is about love, of sibling, friends, and family variety, and that's something that has been a major force in my life, and something I can relate to well. I also love a good mystery, and this one kept me guessing until the end, which I really enjoyed. Ms Rice writes great characters, makes you see, smell, and taste the story's locale, and weaves a spell that I couldn't break away from until I fell asleep, then woke and turned my Kindle back on to finish the final chapters. You can't ask more from a good book than that. I'll be reading more Luanne Rice novels.
