When life feels like a puzzle, sometimes it’s the small pieces that make up the bigger picture… Join Bridget on a journey to put her world back together.
A successful travel journalist, Bridget has ambitions to turn her quirky relationship blog about the missing pieces of her heart into a book. But after a spate of rejections from publishers, she accepts an alternative proposition.
Nicole Dupré died leaving behind a bestselling novel and an incomplete sequel. Tasked with finishing the book, Bridget is thankful to have her foot in the publishing door, even if it means relocating to Cornwall for the summer and answering to Nicole’s grieving husband, Charlie…
I didn’t envy Bridget working on a sequel to a bestselling novel, especially when the original author has sadly passed away and she will be ghost writing it. You can tell the immense pressure that Bridget feels in wanting to get it right. So much so she sets up in a small motor home in a campsite so she can spend several weeks researching the previous authors notebooks. To do this she has to rely on the hospitality of Charlie, widower and father of April who Nicole lives behind of which Charlie is still trying to come to terms with her loss.
The story starts on shaky ground with Bridget and Charlie trying to settle into this new routine of which it feels at times they are walking on egg shells. The more that we get to know these characters as well as them getting to know each other better, the more my heart began to swell. I loved both of them as well as their relationship with little April which was just so heart warming. It was really enjoyable seeing the undeniable chemistry between both growing and I knew how I wanted this book to end. To see if they all get their happy ever after, you will need to read it for yourself!
The Last Piece of My Heart is such a lovely and engaging read that definitely stole some of my heart. The gorgeous settings added to the wonderful ambience of the story and I let the author whisk me away so I felt I was there along with the characters. The novel is beautifully written and had me routing for Bridget and Charlie throughout. A fabulous read that will have your heart fit to burst with emotions!
