I read my first Lily Malone book about 5 years ago and from the first one I fell in love with her writing. It was her quirky humour, introductions to characters and attention to detail in her settings that drew me in. Lily’s latest offering has that but a bit more, a bit darker. In The Last Bridge Before Home, Lily deals with abuse, both physically and emotionally as well as one of her characters having a congenital disability. All this put together brings us a great book that stirred emotions in me that a lot of other books haven’t. This was a great read and very deserving of the six Eagles I have rated it. Thank you so much Lily. Brilliant 🦅🦅🦅🦅🦅🦅
Loved this about Jadah and Brix. It’s about abusive father and how cruel he can be it’s obviously how emotional this must have been for Lily to write. It also shows what good their is in Brixs family while going through their own sadness and how people pull together and works out in the end. I would love to see another book off how they are all going on a few years on.
From the beginning of the book to the end was a wonderful journey of emotions. This story was hard to put down Brix and Jaydah is the fairytale plot where there seem to be insurmountable struggles to live their happily ever after. One of the best drama romances I have read in a long time.
Oh my goodness! This book is not at all what I expected. It’s better, richer, deeper and ultimately more satisfying. Last Bridge Before Home is more than just a romance, though it is that too. It’s a love story in the fullest sense of the word. It’s about the love family members share with each other and the lengths they’ll go to to protect them. Domestic violence os a strong thread throughout this story and the things the perpetrator did chilled me to the bone. Author Lilly Malone wrote this aspect so sensitively I was almost in tears at times. I marvelled at the inner strength Jaydah showed as she learned to trust Brix Honeychurch, the man she’s loved since she was a teenager. This book is one of the very best I’ve read in a long time, not only because I loved the storyline but also because of the characters, each of them so real and each with their own personal quirks and qualms. I think I fell a little bit in love with Brix the first time I met him. He is so calm, dependable, trustworthy and loyal and he really works to make things right for Jaydah. I could wax lyrical for a lot longer but suffice to say that having read this story I will be looking for and devouring everything else that Lilly Malone has ever written.
Last Bridge Before Home by author Lily Malone is one of those rare reads that I could gladly read over and over. Jaydah (JT) and Braxton (Brix) were outstanding from the story's beginning. Their chemistry could have its own postcode, it eminated from the pages. I loved their intro to readers and I loved the whole Honeychurch family dynamic. There are lots of twists in the story and many unexpected moments that left me reeling. Last Bridge Before Home was a read I could not tear my eyes away from, nor wanted to. The story, the characters, the setting, drew me in from the start. Ms Malone has written an unmissable, moving read that challenges a reader's strength in the obstacles that are faced by the many characters within. Outstanding reading.
What a wonderful story that is so much more than just a romance, it's full of some much more from love, trust, domestic violence, growth, forgiveness, secrets and the power of family. This is my first read of Lily Malone and so as this is book three of the series I have not had the pleasure of reading the others, but after this one, it's on my list to do so very soon. As I love the way the author drew me in and kept me interested in every word to the very end.
The characters were all inspiring and realistic, so this helped me believe in the drama that fulfils the pages as our journey with them took us with them. It may be a difficult topic for some readers but I feel the message the author gives us will also help some to read this inspirational story unfold.
The author did a wonderful job with very strong topics to bring us this wonderful story to both teach and entertain us. Thank you.
Can Brix find the truth to Jaydah's secrets in time to help the woman he loves?
