The Last Charm by Ella Allbright

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…

I DEVOURED this book. Based on the blurb, I was prepared for a nice story but not the One Day levels of emotion I experienced. By the last chapter I was absolutely bawling.

This is the first time in a while that I fell in love with the main characters, Leila and Jake. I loved them not only because they brought such a beautiful and tender story, but because they weren’t perfect. At times they were annoying and other times I couldn’t get enough of them. But the character development was real and raw and I couldn’t imagine Leila and Jake written any other way.

Leila and Jake had an undying love for one another, even if it took them a while to realise. Quite often, this can lead to a cheesy love story. However, The Last Charm wasn’t a frustrating case of “will they, won’t they” but a wonderful story that renewed my faith in soul mates. And then there was the story of Leila’s charm bracelet, which added a unique premise to the author’s storytelling.

Yes, I was sent a free copy of The Last Charm but that doesn’t skew my opinion. This was a beautiful, moving story that I will never forget.

The Last Charm is available to buy now.
