I couldn’t predict any of the plot twists in advance, and that isn’t something that normally happens to me due how familiar I am with the mystery genre. It was a lot of fun to be kept guessing until the very end. Ms. Chloe has a vivid imagination and she clearly took full advantage of it when writing this tale.
The pacing felt disjointed. It’s divided up into a few different sections that almost seem to function as their own stories. While each section moved along fairly smoothly, transitioning among them was sometimes bumpy due to how many different time the perspective switched from one character to the next. I appreciated the backstory that later sections provide, but it was a little too detailed for something this length.
In the beginning I was sure I had Paige figured out. The hints about her past are illuminating, but no sooner did I think I’d pieced them all together correctly than another twist would knock them apart again. I enjoy meeting protagonists who defy categorization and make their own rules. Paige is definitely a complex woman, so it was rewarding to figure out what makes her tick and why she behaves the way she does.
I’d recommend No Last Tattoo to anyone who likes mysteries that are not easily unravelled. There are a lot of tantalizing clues here to be discovered, but none of them are easy to fit together!

No Last Tattoo by Isabel Chloe is actually two stories linked by the interactions of the main characters. Paige is a computer specialist by day and a tarot reader by night. Apple is a well-known psychologist who has an unconventional pastime. She consults Paige’s cards to understand the degree of success she might expect for these extracurricular activities.
This novel is a unique and sometimes quirky character driven study of familial revenge. It’s a pair of hurtful stories about childhood abuse, how these women survived and dealt with its aftermath, and the unusual bond that formed between them. It is full of frightful situations, poignant insights, and painful consequences. No Last Tattoo will be an entertaining read for anyone who enjoys unconventional character studies.
I received this book free of charge from the author in return for an honest review.
