“An element of supernatural whimsy, a dark secret involving a trust fund and a disturbing question related to Charlie's estranged father, Randy, add complexity, while cameos from other Beach Girls characters contribute an engaging, homey touch.”—Publishers Weekly

From the Hardcover edition.


New York Times bestselling author Luanne Rice returns to Hubbard’s Point, Connecticut, and to characters from her beloved Beach Girls, to tell the haunting story of a close-knit community grappling with a heartbreaking mystery, and of a woman rebuilding her world and reclaiming a love she believed lost a lifetime ago.

A face on a poster, a name in the news, an inexplicable tragedy. A promising young man goes out one warm summer evening and is found dead—murdered—less than twenty-four hours later. No motive. No clues. No answers. Most people reflect briefly on the disturbing headlines, perhaps say a silent prayer of safely removed sympathy, and go on with their lives. But what if the young man was your son? Or your true love?

Nearly a year after the death of eighteen-year-old Charlie, singer-songwriter Sheridan Rosslare still hasn’t played a note of the music that was once her life’s passion. Tucked away in the beach house where she raised her only child, she lives with her memories of him and a grief too big to share even with her beloved sisters or her dear friend Stevie Moore. Nor can Stevie comfort Charlie’s heartbroken girlfriend, Nell Kilvert, whom she regards as a daughter. Nell won’t rest until she finds out what really happened to the boy she loved. Out of the past she summons a man she believes cares enough, and is tough enough, to uncover the truth—Sheridan’s long-ago soul mate, Gavin Dawson.

Now Gavin’s boat, the Squire Toby, sits anchored in the harbor within sight of the window of the woman he once loved, still loves, and will always love. Sheridan, too, had once fervently believed in the miraculous power of love and healing, forgiveness, connection, and reconnection. But that faith died along with her son….

Unfolding among the Hubbard’s Point people and places that fans have come to treasure, and replete with feeling and mystery, Last Kiss weighs the power of the past to heal as well as wound, in a captivating tale of love, loss, and redemption that no reader will ever forget.

Zunächst einmal handelt es sich um die Aufklärung des Todesfalles eines geliebten Familienmitgliedes.
Diese Aufklärung zieht sich als trauriger roter Faden durch die Geschichte, gestaltet sich spannend und hält einige Überraschungen bereit.

Meiner Meinung nach ist dieser rote Faden aber nicht der Hauptgrund, warum diese Geschichte so lesenswert und vielleicht sogar liebenswert ist, vielmehr ist es die 'märchenhafte' Atmosphäre drumherum.

Zum einen ist es der örtliche Mittelpunkt der Ereignisse, der an der Küste angesiedelt ist, mit romantischen Strandhäuschen als Lebensmittelpunkt, dazugehörigem Sandstrand und natürlich auch Strandfeuern für die Jüngeren.
Zum anderen ist es aber die empfundene Zusammengehörigkeit der Hauptbeteiligten, welche durchzogen ist von warmem Mitgefühl, Liebe und wehmütigen Erinnerungen. Verletzte Gefühle dürfen dabei selbstverständlich ebenfalls nicht fehlen.

Es ist dieser Kontrast aus warmer Atmosphäre und Trauer, aus Strandromantik und Aufklärung eines Todesfalles, aus Liebe und Verlust, welcher den Leser gefangen nimmt.

Die Grundstimmung ist positiv mit romantischer Einfärbung, stellenweise eigentlich sogar ziemlich märchenhaft, was man, wenn man will, natürlich auch als Kritikpunkt verstehen darf.

5.0 von 5 Sternen exciting investigative romance 2. August 2008
Von Harriet Klausner - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
One year may have past since Charlie died in what the New York police determined was a random act; however, his mother singer/songwriter Sheridan still grieves her loss, numbing her pain with Wild Turkey. Joining her in mourning is Charlie's girlfriend Nell who has worn a ragged anklet cloth he gave her 350 plus days ago just prior to the lethal mugging. Both women who adored Charlie visit his gravesite in Hubbard's Point, Connecticut regularly.

Nell has doubts about the NYPD rush to judgment that her beloved was in the wrong place at the wrong time due to a bad luck occurrence. She needs to prove the cops wrong, but understands this is real life not fiction so an amateur is not successfully sleuthing. Instead she hires private investigator former Hubbard's Point native son Gavin Dawson to uncover the truth of what happened to Charlie. Gavin has an extra incentive as his beloved Sheridan tossed him to the curb for his youthful out of control lifestyle; he prays maturity and solving the case will give him a second chance with Sheridan.

The return to Hubbard's Point (see THE PERFECT SUMMER, SUMMER'S CHILD and SUMMER OF ROSES) is an exciting investigative romance with a touch of the paranormal and a feel of homecoming (appearances by former stars) although mourning is everywhere. The inquiry raises some intriguing questions related to Charlie's death, but though driven by a personal cause Gavin struggles to affirm premeditated. However, the key to the tale is Sheridan whose grief is so strong that her melancholy seems to be overwhelming Gavin's attempts for a second chance at love. LAST KISS is a deep character driven thriller.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Actually Four and a half... 21. Juli 2008
Von Racheal Kalisz - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This was such a wonderful book with so many beautiful characters, I was sad to come to the last page.

Sheriden lost her son almost a year ago. She quit writing the beautiful music that was such a large part of her life, and now spends her time drinking away the memories of her beautiful boy who had just left for college. She had a bad and quick marriage to Charlie's father, who she does not speak to. The one true love of her life Gavin, comes back to try to solve the mystery behind Charlie's death.

Nell had saved her money and hired the best Private Eye she could, that being Gavin. Nell lost the love of her life too when Charlie was murdered, "a mugging gone bad" in NYC where she had planned to join him after her senior year of high school. She is not going to NYU anymore, and with college looming, she just needs answers to what and who has taken her Charlie away.

Jack is Nell's dad and he has an unlikely love in Stevie (the recluse author from Beach Girls), who is now pregnant with Jacks baby, Nell's future brother or sister. Jack is a traditionalist, an architect. He is miffed that Stevie will not accept his marriage proposal to make them all a real family. After being down the aisle 3 times prior and having them all fail, she just cannot do it again...and if they love each other, why do they have to be married any way?

Agatha and Bunny are around as well. Sheriden's sisters who are sure they can work their magic to get Sheriden to give into her feelings for the only man she has ever loved. Gavin is promising her answers to Charlie's death, but Charlie is gone and answers will not change that.

All of the character's are so well developed, this is a wonderful read. I could not give it five stars due to some redundancy in the story telling that I feel an editor should have caught, but I did really love this book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Grief, Love and Faith 15. März 2009
Von Beth E. Settje - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Losing a child has got to be one of the most difficult experiences in life for a mother to go through. In Last Kiss, when a young man dies way too early in his life the women in his life are extremely deeply affected. How each copes with the loss is its own story. Rice does a solid job of telling their stories, both individually and interconnecting them. Love emerges in spite of the grief, which helps everyone move forward. What is refreshing is that this book is not a love story in a typical romantic novel way. Instead, it really focuses on women's strength and the faith they have in themselves and those who love them.
Though a stand alone, it does help if the reader has read other Rice books that take place in Hubbard's Point.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Not for me 13. September 2013
Von Erin's mom - Veröffentlicht auf
This is the second book I've read by this author and it will be my last. In both there's a love story (or two) and a mystery. The premises catch my attention but after a few chapters I find my mind wandering and realize the story is meandering around not getting to the point - it's boring! The characters are not well developed at all. The language is melodramtic and I caught myself rolling my eyes and groaning out loud on several occasions. In addition, in both stories the solution to the mystery is predictable and therefore very anti-climactic and left me thinking "that's it??".
