Product Description

Twenty-five years ago, Monica Stanton gave up a baby girl for adoption. Now, the thing Monica didn't dare hope for has happened: Jessica has reentered her life . . . and brought a little drama and competition with her. Jessica is willing to meet her birth mother, but she wants the reunion to air on a reality TV show. Monica would rather chew glass than appear on TV. But she'll swallow her pride-and a few other unsavory items-if that's what it takes to reconnect.As if getting to know her grown daughter while competing on a remote island isn't hard enough, Monica is further confused when Jessica's long-lost birth father shows up, complicating both her relationship with her daughter and the attraction Monica has to the hunky reality show host. The fruit-basket upset of emotions, accusations, and regrets might make for good TV, but will it destroy the family in the process?

    Monica Stanton's past decisions have caught up with her. When the baby she put up for adoption states on national TV she wants to do a reality TV show with her, She feels she has no choice. Monica and Jessica must face many trials physically and emotionally all while being captured on camera. Can Monica make it through the drama? Will Jessica ever let her guard down? There are many twists and turns throughout this book. I love the dialogue, the characters and details in this book. It is full of choices, forgiveness, friendship and a dash of love. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes good clean contemporary christian fiction. (I won this book)

    Ive read a couple of novels recently set on or around reality TV showsI suppose that tells you something about contemporary TV (I wouldnt know. Ive usually got my nose in my Kindle). Last Family is something a little different, and thats what makes it special.

    Getting a phone call from your best friend to say theyve just seen your daughter on TV isnt an everyday happening, but its something Monica Stanton never expected to hear. She gave her daughter up for adoption the day she was born, twenty-five years ago. Now her daughter wants to reuniteon a reality TV show.

    Last Family Standing is close to perfect. Excellent opening. Solid writing. Well-paced. Great characters. Plenty of conflict, both internal soul-searching and the external conflict of attempting to establish a relationship with a complete stranger while participating in an elimination-style reality show on a tropical island with not enough food. A twist in the middle and another towards the end which gives it that real wow factor. And even a little romance (thats the one failing. Perhaps not enough romance ).

    The entire story is told by Monica in first person point of view. Thats sometimes a weakness, but Monica is a strong character, one with plenty of hidden secrets (like the identity of Jessicas father), and a character who is well able to hold the novel without it getting boring. And the single viewpoint works well, because that way the reader is just as surprised as Monica when the twists come.

    Recommended. Ill certainly be looking out for more books from Jennifer AlLee.

    With all the competition and obstacles of a reality TV show, Last Family Standing by Jennifer AlLee will have you turning page after page to see who wins. AlLee does an excellent portrayal of emotions in this book. They snap with electricity and are anything but stereotypical. Novel Rocket and I give it a high recommendation. It's a perfect Spring or Summer read.
