 The Last Piece of My Heart by Paige Toon | Rating: ★★★☆☆ (3.5 stars)  

As a note, an e-galley of this novel was sent to me via NetGalley by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not effect my opinions in any way.

This was my very first Paige Toon novel and I'm so very glad I picked it up. I was promised a good old fashioned escapists read and that's exactly what The Last Piece of My Heart served me. I loved it for that reason! But also... didn't always connect with it for the very same reason. That sounds odd, doesn't it? Well, I can't think of any other way to put it. There are books that are just so beautifully crafted that they leave a mark on your heart and this is one of those.

Which is why I'm not going to point out the parts of the novel that just weren't for me. Flaws are an ever present aspect of life and literature, and there's just no point in me tackling them in this review because The Last Piece of My Heart was much more than its flaws. And if this is only the beginning of what Paige Toon has to offer? I'm definitely giving her archives a second glance.

I was very fascinated by the plot-line of this book because, frankly, I haven't read many with this POV.
No, this isn't to say that there's no books out there about writers who pick up other writers' work after it is left unfinished. There probably is. I have simply never read any, which is what made this quality so compelling to me. I loved that vibe that it gave, you know?

While skimming through the authors notes and traveling to get an idea of where this sequel should go, our main character is set upon a course she may not have expected. Toon provides readers with a heartwarming tale of the past and the future; writing, love, loss and so much more. The Last Piece of My Heart is more than just your average warm and fuzzies chick-lit release. It's a bit of a piece of heart itself.
