The last piece of my heart by Paige Toon

Meet Bridget, a successful travel journalist with ambitions to turn her quirky relationship blog into a novel. But, after numerous rejections from publishers, she accepts an alternative proposition: Nicole Dupre died leaving behind a bestselling novel and an incomplete sequel, and the family need someone to finish it. Bridget is just thankful to have her foot in the publishing door. But as she gets to know Nicole’s grieving family, and the woman behind the writing, Bridget’s priorities begin to change …

It is no secret that I am a Paige Toon fan. I was so excited to get this book for review and equally delighted to say that I loved it.

I loved it for many reasons. I loved the main character Bridget I really liked getting to know her and have a glimpse into her life as a writer. I loved the setting of the majority of the book being set in Cornwall and how I haven't booked a holiday to go there myself again is beyond me. I adored the main relationship of the book and seeing the friendship between Charlie and Bridget grow over the course of the book as she started to bring him out of his shell and into the world again after he's suffered so much grief and heartache.

I can't say too much more without spoiling it so I'll finish here by saying I loved it. It felt full of heart and gorgeously sweet. I really hope the characters cameo in a future novel so we can check in on them again in the future.
