This is the first book that I have read by Tasmina Perry. The first thing that entered my mind while reading this gorgeously story is that The Last Kiss would be a great romantic novel to take on holiday. The story is set in one of the romantic places Paris. It is also set in London and St Petersburg.
The pages are bursting with a gallery cast of glamorous characters. Dashing Dominic Blake is always looking for fascinating people to do a profile on for Capital, the magazine he edited. He was always late to a party or for a wedding this is something that Dominic was famous for.
Lady Victoria was married to a much older man who through Dominic eyes made them seem like an odd couple.
There is Abby who can’t bear to be near her husband after finding text messages to her husband from another woman.
There is breath-taking scenes when Abby Morgan finds a faded photograph, but who is in the photograph? There is a long-buried secret, who has the long-buried secret and why has it been kept a secret?
This is a story of secrets, love and betrayal.  But as the saying goes it’s never too late to start again. Could this be true for one the characters in The Last Kiss?
What readers can expect is an emotional connection with some of the characters or all of them.
