This was my introduction to Luanne Rice, not to be confused with Anne Rice, the author that writes about vampires and such. Luanne instead focuses on typically more earthly things such as relationships with friends and family. Therefore, I was surprised that "Last Kiss" had elements of the supernatural in it after all.
Nearly a year after the unsolved murder of 18-year-old Charlie Rosslare, his family and friends haven't been able to achieve any sense of peace. His mother, Sheridan, a once prolific musician, is left unable to make music. Charlie's true love, Nell, still loves the murdered young man as if he he were still alive. Nell even thinks she sees Charlie in town. Put into the mix a touch of family magic, caring family friends, and a determined investigator from Sheridan's past and you have the makings of a touching drama that is skillfully narrated by actress Blair Brown. This was very enjoyable to listen to and I'm sure it would be a good book to read as well.
