“The problem with giving your heart away to someone is that you never get it back. Long after you’ve fallen out of love with them, they still own a little piece of you….” Paige Toon, The Last Piece of my heart
Meet Bridget, a successful travel journalist with ambitions to turn her quirky relationship blog into a novel. But, after numerous rejections from publishers, she accepts an alternative proposition: Nicole Dupre died leaving behind a bestselling novel and an incomplete sequel, and the family need someone to finish it. Bridget is just thankful to have her foot in the publishing door. But as she gets to know Nicole’s grieving family, and the woman behind the writing, Bridget’s priorities begin to change …
Imagine that every boyfriend you’ve ever had took a piece of your heart. If you only have had a few, your heart might be almost whole but that’s not the case of Bridget. She has had boyfriends from different countries and even continents. After she broke up with her boyfriend from college she got that feeling that the biggest part of her heart was missing and each of her ex holds a piece of it. She took a decision to meet with all of them and to ask them to give the missing pieces back so she can feel whole again.
Bridget describes each of the meetings in her blog as part of her plan to popularize it so she can write a book about it. She is a travel journalist so writing is an easy job for her. At least it was, as before to agreeing to write her second novel, a really popular sequel the author had tragically died.
Nicole Dupre died before finishing her second novel and now her fans are devastated. She left her personal diaries and notes in her house in Cornwall. Bridget has to move there for the summer to find out how Nicole was planning to finish her novel. What Bridget doesn’t know is that Nicole left far more than just an unfinished novel, she left a lovely family too.
Meeting Nicole’s husband and getting to know her lovely family, Bridget begins to realize that maybe the whole time she was looking for the wrong pieces of her heart, maybe she needs completely different ones.
Is it easy to find the missing pieces of your life? Not really, it might take longer than you were expecting but it’s worth it.
