Romances bore me. They usually don't apply to the average person and certainly not to a happily married man! The Last Detail is much more than this. It is a story of faith in God's plan as well as a love story and blends both aspects of the plot line so well it makes the reader feel empathy with the characters. Ms. Lickel tells an inspiring tale of delayed gratification culminating in God revealing his purpose in otherwise divergent paths. She also uses descriptions and dialogue that moves the story along and leaves the reader wanting to read just one page more, with each page turned. It keeps you up at night! I look forward to reading more of Ms. Lickel's novels. Five stars!

Lisa Lickel’s The Last Detail is indeed a dot every “I” and cross every “t” kinda book. She strikes every emotional bell, blows every whistle, and holds us tight as we travel through this journey on track with every curve and mountain top this story weaves of love and loss, family and faith.
Her characters are identifiable and I was drawn into Merit’s struggle and Amalia’s dilemma. How like life…we set our course and never expect to deviate, but God delights in challenging and teaching us through the unexpected twists and turns He allows. Wonderful story. Wish I could give it more than five stars!

I chose a 5 star rating because I enjoyed the book. The characters remind me of real life people, including me, who strive with decisions and difficult life issues. A Christian doesn't have all the answers, nor do they constantly behave properly. Merit and company struggle with a sense of calling. He can't make decisions about where to go, and he doesn't know if he should love Amalia and marry her. Merit has a strong longing toward missions, and this book hits the nail on the head with the trials of mission work. I have several family members who serve on mission fields. They have faced many of the trials Merit met in the book. The first half of the book was good, but the second half was even better with a major surprise. I thought I had it all figured out, but Ms. Lickel threw in one new twist after another. I love the title and the idea of The Last Detail. When a loved one dies, it is comforting to have someone help with specifics. There is a lot of Christian teaching in the book, and I like that. If one is looking for a read void of any kind of theology, then don't read this book. However, if you want to read and learn, this book is for you.

When Merit Campbell is sent home from the mission field, wounded in an uprising at the Middle Eastern clinic he runs, he finds himself in Illinois. He ponders what is in store for him if he can’t stay in the field.
Dealing with the details of his uncle’s enormous old house has been left to his sister; but since Merit is in the area, he’s interested in investigating the home where he had so many childhood memories before his parent’s and older brother’s deaths and the disappearance of his youngest brother, Justice.
Amalia Kennedy is introduced to Merit by a mutual friend. She owns a company that deals with the client’s final wishes and estate details. She’s already agreed to help Merit’s sister sell the old house, but Merit decides to live there and turn it into a place for missionaries on leave.
Amalia parents thought she’d marry her long time business associate, Hudson. Merit, a confirmed bachelor, and Amaila each find an attraction growing for the other. His ministry interrupts their relationship and tragedy finds them. Will they learn to trust each other enough to succeed?
Ms Lickel writes a compelling story of two people who are struggling with their faith and where it has brought them. Amalia wonders if she’s doing enough and Merit wants to finish the job he started. The characters are believable and the story brims with love and hope.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this love story. The realistic characters faced genuine obstacles and worked through them in believable ways. Yes, Merit and Amelia find each other attractive, but there is so much more to marriage--and those thorny issues are incorporated into the story. There is a great supporting cast of appealing charcters, some I'd like to be friends with, and one who's a total loser. Those personalities enriched "The Last Detail" and made it altogether well worth reading. Besides being an entertaining read, this story contains lots of wisdom regarding acceptance of God's plans over ours. This is a book I would recommend to anyone of any age. Don't miss it!

The Last Detail explores several different subjects: estate planning, funerals, and foreign missions. It is a nice romantic story without overdoing the romance. There are complications, of course, as in anyone's life. The true meaning of family, forgiveness, ministry, and the necessity of clear communication in relationships are unifying threads. I liked this book and would recommend it to any woman who likes a slow-paced, pleasant story.

During Merit Campbell’s young adult life his parents and one brother are killed. Another brother’s missing. Merit commits himself to the missionary work his older brother started. While others in the mission field marry and have children, the fear of losing someone else keeps Merit a bachelor. However, he’s convinced himself he’s not going to marry because a wife and family would distract him from God’s work. A skirmish breaks out, and Merit’s wounded so badly he must return to the United States to recover.
When Merit comes to his recently deceased uncle’s house he meets Amalia Kennedy and cannot deny his immediate attraction to her. She’s spent her life believing she’ll marry, Hudson, a longtime family friend, who she loves, but not in a romantic way.
She’s immediately drawn to the handsome minister. She oversees the last details of Merit’s uncle’s estate, and the two of them see more of each other, growing closer in their relationship. Merit admires Amalia’s genuine love of children and others, especially when they visit refuges from the mission field. They start to plan how they can use the uncle’s house to help the displaced people. Their budding romance gets cut short when Hudson falls ill. Then as they re-unite, their love’s complicated not only with the stress of work, but also of tragedy when it strikes Merit’s sister and even the two of them.
The Last Detail keeps the reader turning page after page to see when Merit and Amalia will openly share their feelings and take hold of the love they have for each other. It’s a beautifully written romance that shows how true love includes God’s wishes. It also illustrates how the love of two people can impact the friends and family they love.
