Her Last Words by Jo Barney
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This story is about four women.
The author divided up the chapters for each woman, which I found a good way of interacting and getting to know each woman in turn. We feel their emotions, we get to see inside, not only they're lives but their soul.
Madge, Joan, Jackie and Lou met in college. Madge kept in touch with each of them even though they went their separate ways in life. They met up occasionally.
Each one had to finish their own life story.
Madge wants to finish hers by suicide and to do this she needs help from her friends. She wants her suicide to look like an accident. You can imagine how they others react to this.
The next thing, Madge is missing. They fear for her.
They report this to the Police however, she has to be missing for at least 24 hours before they take action.
There are a whole lot of questions that need answers, as we learn that each woman is harboring a secret.
Did Madge succeed in killing herself?
Madge has a lover, and she has sons, what do the other three women tell them?
What about the investigation?
This is the first time I have read anything by this author Jo Barney, I have another book by her so will be getting on to enjoy that one too.
She seems to write very good topics in a down to earth kind of way that the reader gets involved with without you even realizing it, and the time just flies by reading.
I really enjoyed this.
