The Last Post
von Renée Carlino
Laya Marston's husband, Cameron, a daredevil enthusiast, was the complete opposite of her, ready and willing to dive off a cliff-face or parachute across a canyon-and Laya loved him for it. But she was different: pragmatic, regimented, devoted to her career and to supporting Cameron from the sidelines of his death-defying feats. Opposites attract, right? But when Cameron dies tragically, Laya becomes lost in denial, living in the delusion that Cameron will come back to her. She begins posting on his Facebook page, reminiscing about their life together and imagining new adventures for the two of them.Micah Evans, a young and handsome architect at Laya's father's firm, is also stuck--paralyzed by the banal details of his career, his friendships, and his love life. He doesn't know what he's looking for, only that there is someone out there who can bring energy and spirit to the humdrum of his life.When Micah discovers Laya's tragic and bizarre Facebook posts, he's determined to show Laya her life is still worth living. Leaving her anonymous gifts and notes, trying to recreate the sense of adventure she once shared with her late husband, Micah finds a new passion watching Laya come out of the darkness. And Laya finds a new joy in the experiences Micah has created for her. But for Laya, letting another man in still feels like a betrayal of her late husband. Even though Micah may be everything she could wish for, she wonders if she deserves to find happiness again.
