Hi, all.

Last Kiss, which is the latest novel by Luanne Rice, has just been submitted to 
step one for someone's validating pleasure. The rank spelling was 99.8. Headers 
have been stripped, and page breaks and chapter headings have been protected. 
It looks like it will be an easy validation. As always, if you have questions,

Here's the synopsis:

New York Times bestselling author Luanne Rice returns to Hubbard's Point, 
Connecticut, and to characters from her beloved Beach Girls, to tell the 
haunting story of a close-knit community grappling with a heartbreaking 
mystery, and of a woman rebuilding her world and reclaiming a love she believed 
lost a lifetime ago.

Last Kiss

A face on a poster, a name in the news, an inexplicable tragedy. A promising 
young man goes out one warm summer evening and is found dead- murdered-less 
than twenty-four hours later. No motive. No clues. No answers. Most people 
reflect briefly on the disturbing headlines, perhaps say a silent prayer of 
safely removed sympathy, and go on with their lives. But what if the young man 
was your son? Or your true love?


Nearly a year after the death of eighteen-year-old Charlie, singer-songwriter 
Sheridan Rosslare still hasn't played a note of the music that was once her 
life's passion. Tucked away in the beach house where she raised her only child, 
she lives with her memories of him and a grief too big to share even with her 
beloved sisters or her dear friend Stevie Moore. Nor can Stevie comfort 
Charlie's heartbroken girlfriend, Nell Kilvert, whom she regards as a daughter. 
Nell won't rest until she finds out what really happened to the boy she loved. 
Out of the past she summons a man she believes cares enough, and is tough 
enough, to uncover the truth-Sheridan's long-ago soul mate, Gavin Dawson.

Now Gavin's boat, the Squire Toby, sits anchored in the harbor within sight of 
the window of the woman he once loved, still loves, and will always love. 
Sheridan, too, had once fervently believed in the miraculous power of love and 
healing, forgiveness, connection, and reunion. But that faith died along with 
her son....


Unfolding among the Hubbard's Point people and places fans have come to 
treasure, replete with feeling and mystery, Last Kiss weighs the power of the 
past to heal as well as wound, in a captivating tale of love, loss, and 
redemption that no reader will ever forget.


Who can heal, but one who has healed herself? 
Who can know, but one who has asked and sought? 
Who can lead, but one who has traveled the way?
--ancient French proverb
