When Leila Jones loses her precious charm bracelet and a stranger finds it, she has to tell the story of how she got the charms to prove she’s the owner. Each and every one is a precious memory of her life with Jake.

The perfect read, but keep the tissues handy

I went into this audiobook blind, and like most of the best reads, I picked it for its cover and a quick glance at the blur to see if we would be a good fit. The Last Charm by Ella Allbright is a story of first love, a slow burn over the years, of adolescent misconceptions and one family trying to hold it together as another fell apart. The charms are a pointing reminder of the events in the main character, Leila's, life, made more so by the journey she and Jake take, both together and apart. Sarah Lambie is the perfect narrator, her voice conveys the frustrated teenage monologues and the heartbreaking agony of life as equally as well as the love, and humour of the characters. Listen to this book, with a warm drink, a bar of chocolate, and a box of tissues, you will need them. I won't say any more as I don't want to do you the disservice of spoiling anything about this book, sit back and enjoy it. My thanks as always to Netgalley, the publisher #OneMoreChapter and the author Ella Allbright for allowing me to read and review #TheLastCharm
