Review: The Last Thing You Said

The Last Thing You Said

THE LAST THING YOU SAID by Sara Biren is a romance novel about the healing power of love and friendship when confronting grief. It follows Lucy and Ben as they struggle to cope with the untimely death of Trixie, Lucy’s best friend and Ben’s younger sister. Though this story obviously deals with some heavy subject matter, it is ultimately light and uplifting. While Lucy and Ben’s relationship is at the forefront of the plot, I found Lucy’s relationships with the other female characters to be much more compelling than I had anticipated at first; these complex characters provided such a support network to Lucy and added depth to the plot. That being said, I did feel as if Lucy and Ben’s romance seemed unrealistic at times, and it wasn’t as genuine as I would have liked it to be. Overall, I would recommend this book to anyone seeking a lighter read.
