Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

"Rayna, I need to talk with you. Rayna?"
Rayna entered from the living area just as Trey reached the bottom of the stairs. "What's wrong?" she asked. "Are you okay?"
He rubbed his forehead. "I need to talk to you about that doll."
Rayna glanced toward a chair where she'd propped her old toy. "What about her?"
He motioned. "I did some research. She's pretty old. Actually, she's probably quite valuable."
"I'm not selling her if that's what you're getting at. Honestly, Trent." She turned from him and entered the room where the doll sat.
"No, let me finish." He followed. "From what I can tell she's been sold numerous times, landed in and out of pawn shops and doll stores. There's been some very questionable happenings surrounding her."
"What do you mean? How do you know?"
"Things happen. According to several collectors on the Internet...it's almost like she causes things to happen to people that don't like her. Or maybe don't like you--or whoever owns her at the time."
"That's absurd. She's a doll."
He rubbed his head again. "Maybe a cursed doll."
"She's not cursed. Nothing has ever happened to me."
He dropped his eyes to her chest.
She clasped her hand across her blouse and stared at him. "She didn't cause that. How could she?"
"How do you know she didn't? You have no idea how it happened or why."
"I just know," she yelled. "She was--" She stopped and squinted at him. "Trent, Trent, what's wrong?"

I loved The Last Daughter. Jessica Feguson has written the perfect blend of mystery and romance. The book is well written. Get a cup of tea and be prepared to finish in it in one sitting, because it is a page turner. I can hardly wait for her next book.

I usually do not read novels, but the title caught my eye. After I started reading, I had to continue. The plot kept me guessing and trying to look ahead and I just had to read it straight through to see what finally happened. There were subplots along the way that made it even more interesting. Looking forward to reading more by this author.

I didn't like The Last Daughter-- I loved it. This romantic suspense is a compelling read. I was hooked on page two and had to finish it in one sitting.

The story unfolds as Rayna Guilbeau, having left Louisiana, shows up late one night at a delapidated old home in Oklahoma City. Rayna is on a quest to find out about her past and the family she never knew. Trent Jones, the handsome new owner of the house, hires her to help him describe and catalog its contents. As they work together, Rayna realizes this was once her home. When she reconnects with a scrimshaw doll named Tiva, strange things begin to happen. In the end, Rayna finds what she's looking for and heals her wounded heart. In the process, she gains the courage to look, not to the past, but to the future.

Would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good mystery and a love story to go along! As soon as I started reading, I knew I wouldn't be able to put it down until the end. The characters draw you into the story and you have to find out what happens next.

Once I started reading this book, I couldn't put it down. It was so good that I stayed up way past 2 am to finish it! I enjoyed how this author kept the reader hanging, chapter after chapter, page after page. The mystery was captivating, the characters were memorable and the setting was engaging. Who hasn't dreamed of finding out that they have an entire family they never knew about? The love story was sweet, the antagonist/s were despicable, the heroin was realistic, the male protagonist was desirable and the setting was colorful. Set in an old house, filled with antiques, the story revolved around a secret with clues hidden inside the rooms. This story appealed to me on many levels. First of all, I love mysteries. Secondly, sweet romance stories are rare--and appreciated. And finally, one of my passions as a former Realtor is exploring old houses and discovering unusual antiques. At times, this book reminded me of an episode of Antiques Roadshow--with the addition of a love story and exciting mystery! Kudos to the author for a job well done!

This was my first Scrimshaw Doll story, and boy, was I surprised. What a unique twist to an already interesting story. I loved all the references and details about the old house and neighborhood in Oklahoma City, my adopted home town. The characters were rich and very believable. As to the mystery, Ferguson kept me guessing all the way through.

From the moment you climb into the car with Rayna in the dark of night, you'll want to be with her every dangerous step she takes to find the heartbreaking truth about her growing-up years in the old family home now owned by a stranger, the handsome and sympathetic young Trent. Will she let herself fall in love with him as she must face painful revelations of her past?
