Publisher's Summary

From the author of The Campaign and No Rules of Engagement...

Pamela Wright will never forgive her sister for dying in the Afghanistan war or the army for Laura's death or anyone else for making it okay for Laura to go halfway around the world to fight for reasons Pam has never fathomed. Numb with grief, she buries her sister but not her rage. Among the mourners is Trish Tomlinson, who loved Laura long ago and has found the news of Laura's death sharply painful. She remembers Pam as an unwelcome third wheel but now finds comfort in the company of the young medical resident and in the details of Laura's journal that Pam shares.

Brought together by grief, something more grows. Guilt and anger cloud their feelings and jeopardize any chance at a future. How can love blossom in the shadow of death?

    Story
    "Sister, Sister"

    As with Melissa Brayden's How Sweet it is an older sister dies and her partner soon hooks up with the little sister of her woman; one who still carries the remnants of a childhood crush.
    In this case Dr. Laura Wright is killed in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan. Her younger sister Dr. Pam Wright returns to their hometown of Ann Arbor, Mi. for the memorial service and there she's reunited with her sister's first love Trish Tomlinson and away we go again.
    Pamela's crush which has basically been kept alive by her childhood memories for twenty years is resuscitated but so is Trish's attitude towards Pam as her girlfriend's little sister, will Trish's attitude ever change and if so will it work out for them?
    By consensus this one ended up getting a 5 star rating from the cadre; though if possible I would have rated it at 4.2 to 4.4. There were a few jarring turns and inconsistencies in the narrative that left me scratching my head. The story itself was quite stirring emotionally and the Afghanistan scenes feel real. The manner in which the protagonists came together felt forced and unrealistic however the conclusion was excellent.
    Still I can only wish that those plot twists that elongated the story needlessly had been avoided and the narrative would have been allowed to proceed without all the excess drama.

    "Absolutely fantastic story and narration"

    Wonderful character development of three women's lives intermingled through the years. For those who do not have any experience of family or friends in the military it opens a window into their perspective of life. The tension between characters is believable. The narration I thought was perfect for this story. Listened to it three times.

    Love reading books and I hope I can Authors out by rigging reviews of their books. My goal is to read 150 books a year.

    "Well written. Romantic, suspense...."

    Okay this book made me cry. I love the message at the end. Sexy, romantic book with a little danger and vulnerability to top it off. This book hit my emotions from A to Z.

    Story
    "Great Read"
    What made the experience of listening to Last Salute the most enjoyable?

    The fact that it focused on our troops and veterans.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Last Salute?

    The graveside at Arlington


    Which character – as performed by Maxine Mitchell – was your favorite?

    Pam Wright.


    If you could take any character from Last Salute out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Pam Wright because she sounds like a person who would connect to people who aren't really worldly.


    Any additional comments?

    I thought this story was excellent and look forward to listening to another by this author.

    "Wonderful Memorial Day salute"

    I read/ listened to this book over memorial weekend - so fitting . My dad was a veteran and it brought me to tears and laughs to think of him. He book is for women vets but the story does cross genders. I dos t see a guy reading it but any women who have siblings or friends on the service should read . Good story , good reader, good fun/ time of listening.

    Story
    "War and violence are not justifiable!"

    A superb performance of a story that lectures about the magnificent job the US military is doing in their fight against terrorism.
    There is absolutely nothing that justifies war and violence and this is a novel devoted to highlighting why it is correct and how "All-mighty America" will fight, invade, kill and destroy, and save the human race "in the name of freedom".
    Not worth my time at all!
