Summary

Wall Street Journal bestselling author Melinda Leigh's Morgan Dane series continues as the fearless attorney and her partner, investigator Lance Kruger, take on a disturbing disappearance...

Young mother Chelsea Clark leaves the house for a girls' night out...and vanishes. Her family knows she would never voluntarily leave her two small children. Her desperate husband - also the prime suspect - hires Morgan to find his wife and prove his innocence.

As a single mother, Morgan sympathizes with Chelsea's family and is determined to find her. She teams up with private investigator Lance Kruger. But the deeper they dig, the deadlier their investigation gets. When Morgan is stalked by a violent predator, everything - and everyone - she holds dear is in grave danger.

Now, Morgan must track down a deranged criminal to protect her own family...but she won't need to leave home to find him. She's his next target.

Mommy bears. Don't mess with their cubs !!

Melinda Leigh master story teller. I love this author . Her dialogue is succinct and the story is fluent and page turning. No padding by this lass every chapter full on and building up to a grand finale where all is revealed. Gruesome and a bit of " steaminess" made for an exciting read . Highly recommended like all her books , which by the way I have read .

Very good second book in Morgan Dane series

Chelsea , a young mother x2 is finally able to leave her husband and children for a night and meet up with friends for a drink but... she never arrives. Was she abducted or did she walk away from her family of her own accord.
It doesn't take long to find out that she was taken by someone with some very disturbing thoughts on how women should behave. And he wants Chelsea for his own. When Chelsea escapes he wants her back and the lengths he'll go to are cruel and extensive.
One of the things I really liked about this book is that you have absolutely no idea who the bad guy is. You get to hear his thoughts but nothing else, nothing that might give away his identity. There is one small thing but until caught it wouldn't help.
There is a romance between Morgan and Lance (the protagonists) but that is a very small part of this story.
I enjoyed and Recommend this book. Although it can be read as a stand alone I would suggest listening to book one first for background and relationships.
If you found this review helpful please indicate so.
Thank You.

I enjoyed it. A lot.

Melinda Leigh's second novel in her Morgan Dane series solidifies the series as her best work to date. Her Last Goodbye is a rock solid suspense mystery with a some romance thrown in. Protagonist Morgan Dane is a lawyer and mother of three young children whose husband was killed three years ago. She comes from families of cops on both her parents' sides. The novel is wonderful but the narration could be better.

Strange

Where does Her Last Goodbye rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I love this series, and loved the first book. The Narration was very strange at times. Lines like "Morgan said." or "Lance replied." were very robotic and seemed like they were recorded separate and added later. It was very distracting once I recognized it, and at times hard for me to move past and just listen to the story. The rest of the narration was great, fluid and well performed.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved trying to figure out who the kidnapper was, I was close but ended up being wrong.

Have you listened to any of Cris Dukehart’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I've only heard one other performance by this narrator and it was at times tough to get through. Most of the time I was into it, and really enjoyed it, but there were times I felt like her voice was breathless, eager almost yearning. It was odd, especially when lines like "Morgan said" or "Lance replied" felt like they were recorded separate and added to the narration as an afterthought. They seemed robotic and the exact same each time. Once I recognized it, it was very distracting and I had to focus on the rest of the story to keep going. Most of the book was very fun to listen to and seemed to flow.

Morgan and Lance have another Dark Case to Solve

Pressing onward through the Morgan Dane series after pausing to go back for the earlier Scarlet Falls trilogy to have the stories the Morgan Dane series was based on, I was ready for competent lawyer and widowed mom, Morgan, to solve another heinous crime to help defend her new client. Naturally, I appreciated having the ready and able former cop, Lance Kruger at her side as they fight evil.

Her Last Goodbye is book two in the Morgan Dane series and could be read out of order, but does work best doing them in order so relationships, characters, and earlier situations that are present and talked about make sense.

Morgan and Lance are hired by the husband of a missing woman. Tim is distraught that he's being investigated by the sheriff's office when his wife is still missing. Morgan is still struggling with her role as defense attorney and worrying that she is not defending someone innocent, but she does want Chelsea found for the sake of the kids and even Tim since her gut tells her that he's innocent. Meanwhile, Chelsea is doing what she can to get away from a fiend and back to her husband and kids while other missing women are turning up in and around Scarlet Falls.

I was struck in my first Morgan Dane story about how tough and smart she is while not losing her poise. She lost her cop dad in a shooting when she was a kid, then she and her siblings are raised by her granddad whose health is failing now, then her military husband died doing his duty, and she is just now getting back on her feet again only to find herself not prosecuting criminals anymore. Her family heritage is law enforcement three generations and all of her and her siblings, but now she finds herself uncertain if defense attorney is going against all that. She really does care that she not defend a criminal. At the same time, she's coming out from under her load of grief to find that she has a second chance at love if she is brave enough to put her heart on the line again. It is complicated in that her three girls are her priority and Lance has his own past that keeps him from rushing into a relationship. Lance's dad disappeared and never came back causing his mom to spiral into mental illness so that she can't leave her house and she struggles with hoarding and letting others near her. Lance is also learning to be at peace with having to leave the local police force after his leg never fully recovered from a shooting injury.

So much layering, and then there is the current case of the missing woman. The pace and tension in this book was palpable with Chelsea trying to find a way out of her situation and Morgan and Lance racing the clock to find her. They aren't getting much cooperation from the sheriff who resents their presence in HIS investigation. The case is tough and they really have to grind it out to even produce one clue let alone the trail to Chelsea. And, its not like their own safety is certain when Morgan gets in the crosshairs of an abusing ex she has to serve papers to and a brutal sex offender who comes up as a suspect in their current case. Lance is there to assist, but he totally respects Morgan so he works hard to keep his fears for her safety in check so they can do their jobs. I was riveted.

Cris Dukehart's narration work is still a strong and welcome reason why I love this series. She had a large cast and she gave them all individuality and had the right touch with tone of the story.

And, I no sooner finish than I want to grab up the next book in the series of this addicting and gritty romantic suspense series.

Phenomenal read

As always, Melinda has outdone herself on this book. Just when I thought I had it all worked out, BAM, there was another twist. I enjoyed this book even more than the last one.

Morgan and Lance are back at it again in this thrilling story. They have a missing person, a list of possible suspects and, a whole lot of trouble. Seems to be the word of the day for them. As they work to solve the midterm of who did it, and why, we get to see the relationship between them grow and blossom into a true love story.

That doesn't take away from the chaos and craziness in the pages before you. Oh, no. That seems to build it up more. I can't wait for the next book!

Morgan & Lance are great!

They make a wonderful team professionally and now I am looking for them to commit to each other personally. He is wonderful with the kids. They tend to balance one another. However, I would liken to see Lance have a stronger backbone. He seems to sit in the wings or in the background a little too much. He is crazy about her but his tenderness is coming across as weakness at times. I am interested in seeing where this is going to go. Now on to Book 3! I love this series.
