Review on The Last Page
on August 19, 2012
Superficial Norah Johnson receives a beating. After investing four years into a relation, her boyfriend, fiancé, and star baseball pitcher for the NY Yankees, Truett Mason is marrying another woman. How can that happen? She had it all planned. If she was wrong about him, then what about her dream job as a fashion designer?
Making a royal fool out of herself, Norah escapes from the eyes and cameras of the paparazzi to her parents' home. It makes no difference and after months of depression they send Norah and Maycee, her sister, to their summer home at the lake to lick her wounds and get some counseling with Dr. Hood. His advice was rest, fun and a journal? Was he kidding? Wasn't there a fast track or magic pill that she could take and make her troubles disappear? No such luck.
Her parents try to help, but really, a puppy? How is she supposed to take care of it when she can barely get out of bed? However, it's ultimatum time. Norah must produce new dress designs or her chance of a lifetime will be given somebody else. It's not the masterpiece gowns the fashion show calls for, but rather she creates one of a kind outfits for the pup. And things get better yet, when Chloe, her best friend, joins them for a few weeks before she goes as a relief nurse at an orphanage.
Against her better judgment Norah tosses her journal, her deepest thoughts into the lake, but her secrets float to the surface and Orien Jones finds it. Can the cure for a broken heart be as simple as finding a new guy? Hardly.
The Last Page by Lacey Camey is a romance novel. I wasn't expecting to like this book. I didn't like Norah's character and the idea of her wallowing in her self-pity turned me off. However, I kept finding reasons to turn the pages. First: in the other characters that cared so much for her, and then finally as the glitter fell from Norah and I read the real person grow from rock bottom to self-reliance.
