About the book:

Take a heartwrenching and uplifting romantic journey, from London to the Hamptons to the south of France and the Welsh mountains, with the author of Always, in December.

For as long as Cassie can remember, it had been the three of them: Cassie, her big brother Tom, and Tom’s annoying best friend Sam.

Now, Tom is sorted, Sam is flying high, and Cassie thinks she’s figured it all out. Then tragedy happens and three becomes two.

For Cassie picking herself up seems unimaginable. Until she finds an envelope addressed to her, asking her to follow the trail to one last gift…

And suddenly what seems like an ending leads Cassie to something unexpected, beautiful and new…

About the author:

Emily Stone lives and works in Chepstow and wrote Always, in December in an old Victorian manor house with an impressive literary heritage. Her debut novel was partly inspired by the death of her mother, when Emily was seven, and wanting to write something that reflected the fact that you carry this grief into adulthood, long after you supposedly move on from the event itself. One Last Gift is her second novel.

My Review:

One Last Gift by Emily Stone is a heartwarming and moving read that’s pure escapism at its very best. Beautifully written, it’s an emotional but ultimately feel good read that left me with a warm fuzzy feeling as I turned the final page. The perfect read to curl up with this winter, I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of this touchingly poignant new novel.

For as long as Cassie can remember, it has been just the three of them: herself, her big brother Tom and his best friend Sam. But now Tom has gone and all that’s left is Sam, the man who let her down and who she no longer wants anything to do with. And then, to her surprise, Cassie is given an envelope that leads to one last gift from her big brother in the shape of a treasure hunt, a tradition the siblings always carried out together once a year. But as emotions run high and Cassie finds herself in Sam’s company once again, can she ignore the feelings she once had for him? Or will the clues Tom left help heal the rift between them at long last?

With a storyline that put me in mind of the wonderful PS: I Love you, One Last Gift is a bittersweet and simply unforgettable read that I adored. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone who is looking for a lovely gentle read to lose themselves in as the nights draw in and the days grow colder.

An absolute belter of a book that will break your heart into a million pieces before putting it back together again, One Last Gift is a life affirming and tender read about love, loss, grief, family and friendship that captures your heart from the very first page. With memorable characters and a story that takes you from the heart of London to the South of France, this is the perfect book to curl up with at the end of a long day. 

Emily Stone is an author who just keeps on getting better and better and I can’t wait to read whatever she comes up with next!.
