Last Kiss Goodnight: A heart-breaking story of lost children and the power of a mother's love Kindle Edition
I stroked the top of my baby’s head and whispered to him gently that I would find a way. I will not let them take you…
Once upon a time Kate’s life was full of love and smiles and laughter. A time where she dared to dream and hope. But then her perfect family unit is shattered in the most unthinkable way. And now Kate is silently and steadily falling apart.
When she meets Martha, Kate recognizes a kindred spirit. Martha is searching for a lost love; tragedy has touched her life too. Why are they so inexplicably drawn to one another? And why are they both keeping secrets about their pasts?
As Kate and Martha are forced to face the painful memories they’d each locked away, can they save each other and learn to live again?
A beautifully written story full of emotion, hope and the redeeming power of love and friendship. Perfect for fans of Diane Chamberlain, Amanda Prowse and Rowan Coleman.'

Last Kiss Goodnight is a village novel with universal appeal. It deals with the issues of lost love and lost children but also with the pain and eventual growth of those left behind to survive, even when they don't want to.
When Kate and Toby move into town, it is supposed to be an opportunity for them to start over, but Kate cannot break away from the sorrow that haunts her until she meets Martha, a woman who is dealing with a loss of her own.

Oh my goodness 85% in gripping………………………
Twists and turns all the way through, a fantastic absorbing read. Beautifully written!
I really enjoyed this book - it was a heartwarming and thoroughly satisfying read and I am missing the characters already - so I'm now looking forward to reading 'Recipes For Melissa'.
Hope you will enjoy it too!
This book was a pleasant read and I kept reaching for it whenever I had a minute. I really enjoyed reading about the friendships and relationships between all of the characters and the bond that grew between Kate and Martha was something really special.
I would definitely read more by this author, I am looking forward to doing so.
Stories of loss run through it, but it’s uplifting and even funny in places – realistic, but also optimistic. Teresa Driscoll is SO good at filling her work with real, three-dimensional people and all their strengths and weaknesses.
Everyone will have his or her favourite characters. I finished wanting to know what would happen to them next, especially Matthew. Few books deserve the title of “satisfying read” but Last Kiss Goodnight certainly does.
