My 3rd novel wasn’t meant to be a sequel to the 2nd novel in the first place. Then something happened. Characters began to beg to be included in the story. Thus, a sequel was born.

Book Review: The Last To Know

Submitted by on June 13, 2010 – 22:054 Comments

“Don’t be the last one to pick up this book!”

I might be the last one to know about this fantastic novel, but I’m thankful I picked up the book from the shelves at the local bookstore last week because this is one well-written story every reader should not miss!

The Last To Know by Melissa Hill is dramatic, suspenseful and definitely thrilling – I could not move from my seat the moment I started reading the first page. It’s not always that a book glues me to my seat, the fact that this chic-lit romance twist successfully engaged me from the very first chapter is the only reason you need to pick up this book.

Written from three main perspectives, The Last To Know is a story about a couple who knows that they are in love one another but refused to move out of their comfort zone to confess that love and build a future together. Instead they continue to live one step at a time hoping that their love would fall into place eventually. Along the way, many other people are hurt and affected by their unfulfilled love including the life of a baby girl.

It took a while for me to relate the three perspectives of the story, but once I did, the story just drove me through the night as I read from one page to another without wanting to stop for meals. It’s like reading a thriller in a romance twist. At the end of every chapter, there’s a hook that leads you to dive immediately to the next one to find out what happens next. And if you are not careful, you might just end up like me – reading for 2 days straight and slacking at work.

Simple words with easily understandable sentences, Melissa Hill did a great job in writing this masterpiece. The tone and manner of the story complements the entire plot nicely keeping it chic with a stint of thriller and suspense, and the speed of the story is perfect – never too fast or too slow moving, just the right pace. I simply love it!
