The Last Love Song

We rated this book:


Mia may have to tell her best friend (true love?) good-bye. Britt is leaving Sunset Cove to fulfill her dream to become a singer/songwriter star. Mia would be a good band member; her mother, after all, was Tori Rose, a country star who died too soon. But Mia can’t decide if she should follow in her mother’s footsteps. After all, look what happened to her? When Mia graduates, her grandmothers give her a gift left by her mother, which turns out to be a scavenger hunt about her mother’s life. With only a week left before Britt hits the road, Mia has to find the answers quickly so can decide if she should join Britt’s band on the road or stay behind to avoid the same fate as her mother.

This read is a slow burn, not a quick flame. The beautiful cover envelops a story told in two time periods, Mia’s and her mother’s, with poignant lyrics and a touching finale, though Mia’s self-degradation may distract some readers. The clues in the scavenger hunt seem more difficult to decipher than a Taylor Swift song, but stick with it, the end is worth it.
