The Last Day by the New York Times bestselling author Luanne Rice is an interesting book. Right from the get-go, you immediately come upon the main plot of the story. Last Day features two sisters named Beth and Kate Lathrop. Beth fell right through the world of art, while Kate became a pilot following her grandmother’s footsteps. Both of these sisters experienced a tragedy. The night their mother was killed, the famous painting, Moonlight, owned by the Lathrop family, was stolen, but later the painting was recovered. Many years later, Kate once again encountered the same tragedy, staring at finding Beth’s body on the ground, blood everywhere, and the famous painting, Moonlight, was stolen once again. Kate thought she was experiencing deja vu since both her mother and sister were dead and the same painting was stolen twice. Detective Reid believed that the person who did this was somebody in Beth’s family. This detective swore to Beth and Kate when their mother died that he would keep both of them safe, now breaking the promise, he was on a mission to find the murderers who did a horrifying thing to Beth.
I would recommend this book to young adults who enjoy mystery novels and who also read before going to bed. This book really explains each character’s characteristics and their importance to the mystery very well and lengthy. Every time I read this book for 30 minutes, I feel like I need to take a nap. This book has a lot of unnecessary details. Basically red herrings to the mystery.
