Lesley Jones +  a Carnage novel = NO BRAINER


5 stars


It’s just a box of letters, right?

Words that were written a long time ago.

From a boy to the girl that he missed. From a man to the woman he loved.

But what if those words carried more impact than anyone realised?

Will they finally give Georgia the closure she needs and lessen the guilt she battles every day?

Or will everything she thought she knew about the boy and man who wrote them and the life they shared be forever altered?

All will be revealed in The Letters.

A story about life, love, and acceptance.


First I have to say that I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Carnage Novels by Lesley Jones. I’m one of those people that can never get enough of the Sean/Georgia/Cam saga. I just finished The Letters and I’m speechless.

I really thought I needed to prep myself to read The Letters because I had an expectation of how the book was going to go. And although we do get to hear Sean’s words to Georgia (from the time they are apart and other times in their relationship), we also get so much more. You will be right there with Georgia as Sean’s words tear her apart, shower her with love and also tell her other things that she had no idea about. And Cam is with her every step of the way. We are not only reminded of Sean and Georgia’s love but also the love that Cam and Georgia have for each other.

The same feelings will return that you had in the other novels – in other words you will cry a lot!!! But you will also laugh (as always) at the playful banter between all the characters. And I am such a fan of how Lesley incorporates all of that Australian/English slang in her books. It’s one of my favorite parts.

To all you Carnage fans – only you can understand it when I say I thought The Letters would destroy me all over again and I didn’t know how Lesley was going to make me “OK” after reading this. Well, she did and although I don’t think I can ever recover from the Carnage novels, Lesley has given us The Letters to help us heal just a little bit! I thought she did an unbelievable job closing this chapter of the book for us.

There is no doubt in my mind that this book will be in my top 10 Favorites of 2016. It is a definite MUST read.
