Claire Corrigan is a bald woman on a mission. She has the ashes of her cheating husband in the overhead compartment on an airplane. She has her mobile pharmacy in her purse. She is planning to settle accounts by burying her husband in a place he has been avoiding in Pennsylvania. On the same airplane is Rob Rhino, one time porn start and reality show host. Yet Claire has more problems than she realizes. Problems the Rob Rhino has seen far too often in his line of work. He is determined to help her before she destroys herself. This not the type of book I usually like to read. It is a book of odd contrasts. It was difficult to get through, but it was intriguing at the same time due to its unlikely hero. Rob Rhino has seen many people in the porn industry destroy themselves with drugs. He recognizes the symptoms when he meets Claire and sets off to save her. What made it difficult to get through for me was the soap opera nature of the story.What kept me reading was the way Kathleen O'Donnell made me care about the the characters even after the masks were stripped away, even because the masks were stripped away. The book began slowly and, at first, I found it hard to grasp the point of the story. Once I reached that halfway point the various threads began to come together.

Refreshingly different! Funny, poignant, heart-felt and with the speed and turns of a roller coaster. It's difficult to create a character that is simultaneously offensive, funny, quirky, intelligent, and self-centered, but also with a big heart. Amazingly, O'Donnell pulls it off with not only one primary character, but with two.   This book is a complete joy and what I hope is the first of many from an extremely talented writer.       --WJMartin

Carl Hiaasen on estrogen In the old days, Claire’s looks inspired lust and admiration. Now she’s scary bald, and in spite of her ten-karat diamond ring and a lavish array of luxury fripperies, her appearance only sparks pity and disdain. Fate sits her next to a fleshy malodorous derelict, the eponymous Rob Rhino. An aged ‘70s porn star, he’s now enjoying—or rather suffering through—a new burst of fame due to a reality show’s focus on his thirteen inch penis. Their meeting changes her life very much for the worst and then amazingly for the better, with Rhino turning out to be the most addled knight in shining armor since Don Quixote. The plot’s vertiginous hairpin turns almost make the reader long to indulge in Claire’s death-defying combinations of pharmaceuticals and alcohol, but that would only dampen the odd-ball humor and satire, which must not be missed. Great characters, wild plot, heart and a sense of humor, The Last Day for Rob Rhino has everything other then the winning numbers for the next Powerball Jackpot.
