Beth Lathrop is found dead murdered Who by That s it Book is in three parts Two parts too long approximately 300 pages where I was bored out of my skull Soooooo much unnecessary detail and I think when dead Beth joined in the narrative that finished me off The ending was good actually it wasn t and I raised a resounding cheer I know others loved it so maybe today I m The Grinch. Luanne Rice is a master storyteller and that truly shines in her latest novel, Last Day, the story of four friends, two deaths and the secrets kept hidden to the end.Sisters Kate and Beth had survived a tragic ordeal in their teen years but, like so many, that tragedy pushed them apart rather than pulling them together Kate is closed off from all emotion and Beth has infused her life with love, giving to the community, loving her daughter and caring for her friends When Beth is murdered, Kate digs in to find the answers to her sister s murder What she finds instead are layers of secrets.While I was a bit disappointed in the ending, the overall story is brilliantly told Last Day was my January selection for First Reads and will be available on February 1st. Great premise and potential, but seriously overwritten, bogged down with redundant details and inconsistent characterizations The pacing was off, the plot twist inconsistent and an editor s pen needed to do some serious work here Disappointing.
