    It wasn't easy being a young woman in 1861 All Lucinda wanted to do was contribute to her father's business but society dictated that she belonged in the home bored to tears When one of her favorite authors died before finishing their book Lucinda was determined to get those last pages This search for the ending resulted in than Lucinda had ever anticipated• Pro I rarely read historicals but for some reason the majorit

To track down the reclusive author’s former whereaboutsDavid is a successful young businessman but is overwhelmed by his workload He wants to prove himself to his late father as well as to himself He doesn’t have the time nor the interest for this endeavo It s been a while since I last read a historical romance and I ve been eager for a new one The Last Word was a short story but it did hit most of the marks for meI uite liked the setting of The Last Word Societal expectations described in the book had my veins throbbing but I was glad to see the issues being tackled The speech and action of the characters felt accurate to the time period Though the writing style didn t much stand out the characters were well developed and easy to root for Lucinda was a rebel through and through I loved how she did not conform to society s standard Her uest got her in trouble often than not but she was relentless Lucinda s determination was admirable While she may have been rash and overeager at times she was always well mannered and respectful Even with David she was civilized most of the timeI really like that we got a solution to the mystery of the novel s ending Often times an author would leave things up to the reader s imagination I always felt cheated since I like solid conclusions so I m glad Ms Hastings gave us a definitive end It was perfect and on par with the theme of The Last WordWhile The Last Word didn t wow me I enjoyed my time with it It s a uick historical novel with strong characters and a fiercely feminist tale

R but Lucinda is not the type to take no for an answerTheir search for the elusive Mrs Smith and the rightful ending to her novel leads Lucinda and David around the country but the truths they discover about themselves and each other are anything but fictional Review can be found at was not really sure what direction Samantha was going to take the story in when I first started but right from the beginning I was on board for the ride Over the last few months I have heard nothing but good things about The Last Word so to say that my expectations were high is very much an understatement Add in the fact that The Last Word is historical fiction which is usually not my jam I was a touch hesitant when I began the book Well I am every so happy to report that I easily fell in love with the story and all the characters Samantha was able to turn a generally in my terrible opinion historical fiction into something approachable for all genre and age readers It is no great matter Lucinda said I can wait in his office I ve learned that waiting is what ladies do best Another invaluable lesson from Miss Holley s Finishing School The Last Word was such a cute fast read that was eual parts adorable and engaging I enjoyed getting to meet Lucinda and feel the struggle she experienced for having all of her life controlled against her will Also as someone who did not get a conclusion to one of her favorite book series I 100% could relate to Lucinda s need to know the answers I also wonder if this was just one little things she could control in a world where she had no power as being a woman But she was not a well brought up young lady she was a stubborn one And never knowing the ending to her favorite story was simply unacceptable I loved watching the romance between Lucinda and David develop almost an enemies to lovers vibe Lucinda and David had been the best of friends growing up until her destroyed her trust and she was sent away to a ladies finishing school Now that Lucinda is home she is eual parts the refined beautiful lady her father was hoping she would be and the headstrong spunky sightly manipulative in a totally cute endearing way number wizard she knows herself to be I loved watching the two interact and verbally spar and I think I was just as love with David by the end of the book as Lucinda was I highly recommend this YA standalone read to anyone who loves romance mystery history and a spunky heroine who can save herself but has a charming love interest to help her if she needs it This is Samantha s debut book and she set the bar very high I can t wait to see what she creates next

1861 Miss Lucinda Leavitt is shocked when she learns the author of her favorite serialized novel has died before completing the story Determined to learn how it ends Lucinda reluctantly enlists the help of her father’s young business partner Mr David Randall You can find the full review and all the fancy andor randomness that accompanies it at It Starts at MidnightI hadn t really been sure I would read this when I found it in my FierceReads package It seemed awfully cute which isn t bad I just didn t know if it was my thing Anyway after reading a ton of books set in the future I was jonesing for some historical fiction and fine something relatively short don t judge So I grabbed it off the shelf and I am so glad that I took a chance on it It s such an unexpected gem Yes it s cute but not in a cheesy sugary way It s that yes there are very swoony moments and it overall made my insides feel happy but the characters also went through some junk too It wasn t just adorableness and magic it was real Basically the author did an amazing job of toeing the line between adorable and saccharine The main character Lucinda thinks that the nineteenth century norms of treating women like possessions is garbage I agree with Lucinda so we were getting along right from the start While her father wanted her to get married and Idk trot around in fancy garb look I have no idea what women did then but seems frilly and boring Lucinda wanted to use her amazing math wizard brain to help the family business Her father s partner and her former childhood pal David seemed to be down with Lucinda doing some work Because she was awesome at it and he knew it Lucinda was also pretty bummed because the author of her favorite serial story is dead and has left no clue to the ending Lucinda is bound and determined to find out the ending and she enlists the help of David Sure she has to bend the truth a little but such is life David doesn t want to get in the middle of family arguments even though he does seem to agree with Lucinda s desire for independence and purpose They get along uite well and you can tell that even when they re on opposite sides there s an undeniable spark Bottom Line Ultimately it s impossible to not cheer for Lucinda and want her to break free from the nonsense societal norms Watching her use her intellect and wit to do just that is an adventure you won t want to miss
