Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

The Last Thing She Said by Rachel Walkley

“Beware of a man named Frederick and his offer of marriage.”

Rose’s granddaughters, Rebecca, Leia and Naomi, have never taken her prophecies seriously. But now that Rose is dead, and Naomi has a new man in her life, should they take heed of this mysterious warning?

Naomi needs to master the art of performing. Rebecca rarely ventures out of her house. She’s afraid of what she might see. As for Rebecca’s twin, everyone admires Leia’s giant brain, but now the genius is on the verge of a breakdown.

Rebecca suspects Naomi’s new boyfriend is hiding something. She begs Leia, now living in the US, to investigate.

Leia’s search takes her to a remote farm in Ohio on the trail of the truth behind a tragic death.

Just who is Ethan? And what isn’t he telling Naomi?

In a story full of drama and mystery, the sisters discover there is more that connects them than they realise, and that only together can they discover exactly what’s behind Rose’s prophecy.

My Review:

Chocolate, chalk and cheese – that’s how the three sisters regard themselves. However, they are all gifted in their own way and this story shows how they are also alike, sharing how their relationship and closeness develops after their grandmother, Rose, issues a warning to Naomi: “Beware of a man named Frederick and his offer of marriage.”

This is a story exploring the lives, dreams, attitudes and relationships of the three sisters as well as something of a mystery story with a psychic element, too. The story has a relaxed, easy pace, somehow inviting you in to get to know the sisters and the secrets they have been hiding from each other that are slowly revealed as they grow closer together.This is an engaging and enjoyable story, a family drama with great characters, plenty of twists and turns and an ending that will leave you with a smile on your face.

I requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest review after choosing to read it.
