Summary:  Norah Johnson is at a crossroads and is in desperate need to heal after a highly publicized breakup from her major league baseball player boyfriend. To escape, she moves to her summer home at the beach with her sister and best friend where she journals, attends therapy and works on her pending clothing line. When a gorgeous stranger finds her lost journal, he seeks to find the author and make her fall in love with him. But is Norah ready to love again?

Review:  First off, Lacy Camey is a BRILLIANT, talented writer, and I absolutely loved this book from start to finish.  Chapter One in "The Last Page" is basically a Prologue because it gives us some background on the main character, Norah Johnson.  Norah is an aspiring fashion designer who has just been dumped by her boyfriend, Truett Mason; he is the Pitcher for the New York Yankees.  After the break up, Norah moves into her family's vacation home over the summer, with her older sister, Maycee and eventually her best friend, Chloe Banks.  While staying there, Norah attends therapy with a Psychologist, Doctor Hood, and he tells her that she should start writing in a journal.  When Norah finally writes in her journal, one voicemail the next morning sends her into a rage, which eventually drives her to throwing her journal out.  Orien Jones discovers her journal and wants to get to know the woman behind the journal.  Now, I absolutely loved this book, and I felt as if though I could relate to Norah.  One thing I liked about this book was how Lacy made Norah such a down to earth character by mentioning things in today's society; for example like the Real Housewives franchise, the certain music Norah listened to, etc.  To me, it just made Norah seem like a realistic character.  Overall, I really enjoyed this book; even though it was a short novel, it was cute, fast-paced, and I would recommend it to women of all ages.  By far one of the best short stories I've ever read, and I can't wait to read the other two books in the series!!
