Editorial Reviews

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.

    Really liked this!

    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.

    Good book, disappointed in the language!

    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.

    Highly recommended. Fast read.

    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.

    Glad I only spent $1.

    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.

    This is a fair attempt at a mystery.

    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.

    Just OK

    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.

    A great page turner!

    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.

    Not bad

    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!

    Her Last Letter by: Nancy C. Johnson Excellent Read

    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.

    Needs editing and proofing

    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.

    Kept Me Guessing Right Up To the End

    I really enjoyed this novel & found it hard to put down. The characters were believable & interesting. I usually am able to figure out 'who done it' fairly early, but this one kept me guessing right up to the end!

    Great Storyteller

    This books has twists and turns you do not anticipate. I totally enjoyed reading it and kept thinking about the characters after the book was finished. I can't believe this is the first book by Nancy C. Johnson. Keep writing!

    Book clubs would not find much to discuss about this book!

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