Review: Warrior's Last Gift by Melissa Mayhue

Book Blurb

When JEANNE MACGHIE had nowhere to turn, Eymer Horvesson stepped in with an offer of marriage. He asked for only one favor in return…and now that he’s dead, Jeanne will stop at nothing to keep her promise to the young warrior—even though it means turning to the one man she swore she’d never speak to again.

ERIC MACNICOL never expected a cavalier refusal to wed would result in his losing the one thing he truly wanted in life. When a warrior’s final request forces him on a cross-country quest with the widow, he must battle his inner demons to make the right decision this time. Only one last gift from a fallen warrior can offer them both a second chance at true love….

Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

This novella was a quick read that involved Jeanne who is in love with Eric.  He refuses to marry her even though they love each other.  She is left in a worse situation as she is carrying his child.  Eymer steps in and agrees to marry her.  He overheard the conversation about marriage, especially after she admits there is a child to Eymer.
I like Eymer.  He seems like a wonderful man to marry a woman in Jeanne’s predicament.  It’s sad that communication or lack there of comes between Jeanne and Eric in the first place.  Both are extremely stubborn.  They wasted a year and a half.

I like how Eymer made plans to make things right after he died.  He made Jeanne promise to fulfill his dying wish.  I wish it was a longer read so the author could really dive into what truly happened and give more specifics about the three people represented in this story.  I love this author and the idea of this storyline was a good one.  I just think it was too short and it wasn’t as developed as I would have liked.  I give it a 3 out of 5.
