TL;DR: 4 out of 5 stars
The Last of August is the equally thrilling sequel to A Study in Charlotte. Once again, Cavallaro crafted an engaging story that is simultaneously unique and familiar. In only 300 pages, Cavallaro exponentially develops her characters, showing an unparalleled degree of development, while constantly remaining true to themselves. As the relationship between Charlotte and Jamie develops, the reader can’t help but become emotionally invested in them and their success. My time vanished in the pages of this story, able to lose myself in Cavallaro’s world. It was immensely easy to imagine her characters as my friends, sharing their lives with me, their anxieties, their joys, their pain, their happiness, all my own. With a final twist and cliffhanger to match, Cavallaro ensnares her readers and leaves us craving the next enstallment.
