Detra Fitch
This mystery had me guessing and second guessing throughout the entire story. I came to actually care for Gwyn. I totally understood her fear of perhaps learning that the man she married may have had a hand in the death of her sister, Kelly.

This was one of the first books I bought for my Nook. I thought it was excellent! Once I started reading I couldn't put it down. The story is a mystery, a woman's sister was murdered, and the murderer might be the woman's husband. It could also be a lot of other people. I thought I had it figured out, but I didn't. Really enjoyed reading this. I'll look for other books from this author.

The author missed opportunities to deepen the mystery but instead included a few explicit sexual scenes. Not sure what this book will be when it grows up.

This reminded me of something a teenage girl might write as a first try at writing a book. The dialog was immature and poorly done. The character development horrible. I never cared about any them, even the main character was so underdeveloped I really didn't care what happened to her. Concept ok, but the opening letter was a tip off to how poorly this would be written.

The mystery will keep you guessing until the end but you won't really care about the characters. Very little character deveopment and amatuerish writing. Several over long descrpitions of useless info. Worth the money but would not look for anything by the author again.

This was a good book with great plot that kept me reading. It has a great twist at the end and some very imaginative plotting! However, I was very disappointed with the F-bomb language near the end! This was totally unexpected and not necessary. Other language could have been used to make the same situational point. It really disappointed me and makes me not want to read this author again.

This book was recommended by a friend. I usually read a little every night for a night cap but this book I could not put down. Brilliantly written. I could feel and smell the alpine air. I will be looking forward to reading another of Nancy's books.

This book was a bit long, and she went into way too much detail about certain things that weren't important to the story... but overall not a bad read. Someone said in one review that it was like a lifetime movie, and i would have to agree. I was very curious as to how it ended so it did keep me interested... and I now have an urge to learn how to ski LOL!

Nancy C. Johnson's 'Her Last Letter' is a great read. The mysterious death of a young woman was unsolved until her sister found the letter that led her to try to find her sister's killer. The story revolves around the two sisters and their husbands, friends and former boyfriends...all are suspect. The characters are believable, the mystery is a page turner, and the ending is not predictable. A great debut novel with hopefully more to follow.

The story line was okay, but the writing is so bad I ended up paying attention to the misspelled words and cliches instead of the story. When you read "semi-tracker trailer" you start laughing instead of staying immersed in the story.

So many bestsellers seem to be filling pages with contrived voyeristic obsenities and vicious horific crimes beyond ones worste nightmares. I'm sick of the trash being sold by talented authors whos minds seem to be rotting in the darkness of hell. I. hope the read this book to remind them what is entertaining concious driven mysterys.

I do not want to read a book that must rely on foul language. Now I will not read anything from this author....Thank you ReadAndTellTheTruth for the "heads up".

Sans the sometimes off-color language, this book would probably be a good read for a teenager but not for discriminating adults - somewhat boring.

Nice book...Ilove to read and sometimes I choose a few books that are cheaper...This was good book...

This book had potential but just didn't deliver. Poorly written and moved slow at times. I found myself not liking Gwen, the main character. A very inconsistent story. I kept reading hoping it would get better but it just wasn't worth it.

I can not stop reading a book once I start, no matter how bad it is. This book was such a waste of time. THe story was boring and drawn out and the writing was poor. I am very disappointed.

The first 100 pages of this book seemed to drag on forever! It felt like the author was going through the motions of writing a book without ever getting to the point. The characters were disconnected and the writing felt forced. There were descriptions meant to add richness to the story that ended up feeling random. Only the ski scene descriptions felt authentic. There were way too many holes in the dialogue to make it feel natural. Not an enjoyable read.

This book had some pretty good reviews so that is why I decided to go ahead and purchase it for my nook. Thank goodness I only spent 99 cents because this book was not good. It went into so much detail in some areas about things that had nothing to do with the plot. I skipped through so many pages just so I could get to the end and when I finally got there is was a huge letdown. There was nothing intriguing at all about the ending. This book was super dull, fraught with bad, amateurish writing, and had a complete let down of an ending. Don't waste your time or money on this one.

Highly suspenseful!

This was one of the first books I bought for my nook. If you are looking for a cheap beach/vacation read; THIS IS IT!! A murder mystery interwoven with everyday life. I tried to find more by this author but this was her first book. I can't wait for the next. If you like Danielle Steele and Jodi Picoult, you will like this. I was a little disappointed in the ending, the final chapters almost seemed like a prologue, but otherwise a good book.
