The Last Piece Of My Heart is a contemporary romance. Bridget is a travel magazine writer and an aspiring novelist. When her synopsis for a book about her broken relationships is shelved by her agent, she’s offered, instead, a ghost-writing job.
When the author of a best-selling contemporary romance died suddenly, she never got to see her book flying off the shelves and receiving great reviews. The sequel had already been planned, and Bridget is asked to step into the author’s shoes and complete the job. It entails her going to Cornwall to access all the author’s notes, from which her still grieving husband can’t be parted.
Adventurous Bridget borrows her Dad’s camper-van, setting herself up near Padstow. Here she can read the draft notes and research the local area, much of which was used as the book’s setting. Nicole left behind husband Charlie and their baby daughter. At first, Bridget’s working relationship with them starts off shaky; not helped when certain family relatives aren’t happy with the ghost-writing plan.
Bridget and Charlie’s friendship grows; he shares his grief whilst she shares her own ideas for the book her agent shelved. With part of Nicole’s book taking place in Thailand, Bridget later travels there to complete her research before finally writing the long awaited sequel.
I loved the Cornish setting and the camper van was so much fun. My respect to Paige, as well; I cannot imagine the complexities of writing a book about a ghost-writer writing a book for another author. This ticks all the boxes for a good contemporary romance and is a must for all Paige Toon fans.
Meet Bridget, a successful travel journalist with ambitions to turn her quirky relationship blog into a novel. But, after numerous rejections from publishers, she accepts an alternative proposition: Nicole Dupre died leaving behind a bestselling novel and an incomplete sequel, and the family need someone to finish it. Bridget is just thankful to have her foot in the publishing door. But as she gets to know Nicole’s grieving family, and the woman behind the writing, Bridget’s priorities begin to change …
