Reviews

Praise for The Last Word

A Junior Library Guild Selection

"Witty, spirited, and utterly swoon-worthy. ... Filled with fierce feminism, impeccable period detail, and a charming romance that's sure to stay with readers long after the last word." --Addie Thorley, author of An Affair of Poisons

"Great voice. Unique premise. ... And who can resist a plucky heroine who is determined to help write an unfinished romance novel by her favorite author!" --B.R. Myers, author of Rogue Princess

"Hastings' debut is a charming period piece with all the romance and scornful nods to high society any Austen fan will love. Lucinda moves beyond the clichΓ© of being a young woman who chafes at the restrictions of a sexist world, as she's elevated by her true passions--numbers and accounting. The Last Word is the perfect read for anyone who wants to spend a few hours in Victorian England in the company of a girl who understands that the entire country is being led by a Queen." --Booklist

"Refreshing ... Lucinda, a young Victorian woman with a modern sensibility well ahead of her time, has plenty of pluck and determination. Hastings' breezy prose and crafty plotting will leave readers racing to uncover her own last installment." --BookPage

"This book was so lovely! Lucinda's spunky personality mixed with her independent nature made her one of my favorite female MCs ... If you love historical romance than you'll definitely love this one!" --The Clever Reader

"I was blown away by the wonderful feminist themes throughout this book, and Hastings delivered them with such a witty punch. Lucinda is the type of heroine girls need to read about! ... This book was everything I'd hoped it would be and then some." --YA and Wine
