“The Last Charm” Review

Hello Friends!

And my final review of the night is here! Get ready for an emotional book.

The Last Charm“, written by Ella Allbright, is a Women’s Fiction novel, published August 21th 2020 by One More Chapter, HarperCollins.

I want to thank Rachel, at Rachel’s Random Resources, and Ella Allbright and One More Chapter for the eCopy of this book, via NetGalley, and for allowing me to join in the fun and being a part of the blog tour with my honest review of the book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.


A moving and heartwarming love story perfect for fans of Me Before You and One Day in December…

Leila’s charm bracelet tells a story of love, a story of loss, a story of hope.

This is the story of her … and the story of Jake.

When Leila Jones loses her precious charm bracelet and a stranger finds it, she has to tell the story of how she got the charms to prove she’s the owner. Each and every one is a precious memory of her life with Jake.

So Leila starts at the beginning, recounting the charms and experiences that have led her to the present. A present she never could have expected when she met Jake nearly twenty years ago…

My Review

When I read the synopsis of this story I was intrigued by the concept and was curious to know more about Leila and her life. And I jumped to the opportunity to read it and I don’t regret it.

As we follow Leila and following her story and connecting the dots as I was reading. It was very interesting. The characters had this rawness to them, and I loved it.

I liked that, although I had mix feelings about certain things Leila was doing, I still wanted to learn her story and to see her growth. For me that’s life. Sometimes we don’t click with certain people and it take us a couple of years to see their growth and how we actually have things in common.

It definitely was an emotional story. One that I may need to reread in the future with different eyes and a new perspective. I feel that there are still some things I need to process and some things I need to revisit. And that’s an amazing thing! Not a lot of books make me immediately plan to reread them.

Overall, I liked it a lot. I love to see the growth and the emotion in the characters and the story. I love that it made me think about life and everything that happens, all that we may experience depending on several factors. A lovely and emotional story.
