Hello, my friends! Do you love loyal men? I do! And Beckett in The Last Letter is just that! Strong, loyal, and handsome! 

The Last Letter

Pages: 432
Received: ARC E-copy from NetGalley for my honest opinion.
Rating: 4.5 stars


If you’re reading this, well, you know the last-letter drill. You made it. I didn’t. Get off the guilt train, because I know if there was any chance you could have saved me, you would have. 

I need one thing from you: get out of the army and get to Telluride. 

My little sister Ella’s raising the twins alone. She’s too independent and won’t accept help easily, but she has lost our grandmother, our parents, and now me. It’s too much for anyone to endure. It’s not fair. 

And here’s the kicker: there’s something else you don’t know that’s tearing her family apart. She’s going to need help. 

So if I’m gone, that means I can’t be there for Ella. I can’t help them through this. But you can. So I’m begging you, as my best friend, go take care of my sister, my family. 

Please don’t make her go through it alone. 


My Review

I loved The Last Letter! Set in Telluride, Colorado, present day. Beckett has come to honor the request that his best friend, Ryan, made in his “last letter” (see book description).

First off, I loved the main characters, Ella and Beckett! Ella is fiercely independent and has already suffered a lot in her life. Beckett is extremely loyal. If he says he’s going to be there for you, nothing is going to stop him. I love strong, loyal men! He’s also very handsome, and an all-around good guy.

Second, I adored Ella’s kids, Maisie and Colt! The cutest kids ever. But sadly, Maisie has cancer, a rare form. She is incredibly brave through it all, and Colt is so good to his sister. They have that twin bond that can tell when something is wrong with the other.

Ella and Beckett are made for each other! Their romance is nicely paced, and trust is built.  I really like that they don't meet and jump into bed. But there are some mature scenes if you’re not into that.

Oh, and how can I forget to mention Havoc! Havoc is Beckett's military special ops dog.  She retired with Beckett because she wouldn't work with anyone else. They have a special bond. Havoc is a cool dog and is fantastic with Maisie and Colt.  

The Last Letter was definitely an emotional read. So grab your tissues because it has all the feels!
