    Don't let my rating fool you, this was an enjoyable story of a woman figuring out how to live now she knows when she's going to die. Jenny finds out her husband is cheating on her exactly when she's ready to tell him she has terminal cancer. Also, her relationship with her daughter ...

    I don't know if "The Last Laugh" is a new direction for the author, or she has just wanted to try something new for a moment - whatever it is, it has worked and Tracy Bloom has delivered a wonderful, poignant story. It is being advertised as a "romantic comedy", however I wouldn't ag...

    I wasn?t sure from the blurb that I would like this book, it seemed like it could be a bit morbid. However, it was a very funny and uplifting read, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Jenny is diagnosed with terminal cancer, and her marriage is falling apart. Rather than wallow, she dec...

    On its surface, this is a chick lit book: woman goes to tell her husband some heartbreaking news, catches him having an affair, and hijinks ensue. But it is so much more than that. For one thing, Tracy Bloom makes you care so deeply about Jenny that you will catch yourself holdin...

    Actual rating 3.5/5. Originally posted on This Chick Reads Well, this book was certainly not what I expected. I haven't read any of Tracy's books yet however I do have a couple at home as they were recommended by friends who know I like rom coms. So, naturally I expected a comedy...

    4.25 Stars Bittersweet! That's the main word that pops into my mind when I think about this book. So sad yet so joyful and lovely. Devastating, yet uplifting. I haven't read many non-psychological thrillers from bookouture, but they have hit the mark on the head with every genre it se...

    I feel as if I've been on a roller coaster whilst reading The Last Laugh by Tracy Bloom .. highs and lows, happy and sad, and all at breakneck speed. Never a dull moment! A none-too-welcome health diagnosis sets Jenny on the path to recapture the best years of her lift and, with the...

    After a couple of emotionally heavy books I'll admit I was a bit hesitant at picking up The Last Laugh, knowing from the blurb it was about finding out you are dying the same day you discover your husband's infidelity. It was another blogger that prompted me to start it after a glowi...

    I?ve never picked up a Tracy Bloom book before, simply because I don?t really read this genre much anymore. And that?s cool, we all have our different tastes but whilst I tend to opt for a disturbing Thriller or a gory Horror, I do like to dip my toes in something different every...

    " '...well, you?re starting to look a bit too thin, that?s all.? I nod. How many times have I dreamed of someone saying that to me? Being accused of being too thin is like being told you?ve won too many Oscars in my book. Magical, magical words if ever they come your way. If on...

    **ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review** Tracy Bloom?s The Last Laugh was such an eminently inspirational novel that superimposes two devastatingly life changing scenarios as they redirect the course of Jenny?s life forever. Jenny, a mid forties mom of ...

    EXCERPT: I look back at Mark. My chosen path. I've purposely not told him what's going on so far, which might appear strange but I cannot seem to say the words out loud. I cannot even bear to hear them. I 've tried. I've stood in front of the mirror and formed the words in my head and ...

    Jenny is having a bad day to end all bad days. She is told that she has cancer and when about to tell her husband she walks in to find him with another woman. It's a lot to deal with, especially as everything wasn't exactly peachy before that day. Her mother regards her as a disappoint...

    The Last Laugh by Tracy Bloom is the second book I?ve picked up by this author and she?s quickly becoming known to me as one to expect the laughs to come quickly. This book however has a rather sad side to the plot but the main character does her best to not become sad and still th...

    This was a really lovely book, covering a difficult couple of subjects. Jenny's story was sensitively told indeed and I found myself getting quite emotionally involved. For me, this wasn't one of those books that make you really bawl all the way through; I found myself saying thing...

    A book I read with a lump the size of tennis ball in my throat and a smile on my lips. A book that I read with tears falling and roaring laughter. How do I then review such a book... Jenny finds out she has terminal cancer and her husband having an affair all on the same day. The st...

    The two tropes I avoid the most are present on this book: terminal illnesses and cheating, yet I decided to read this book on a whim. Why do I do this to myself? There were as many tears as I expected and not as much laughter as it suggests... What makes it a 4-star read though,...

    4? Poignant, Heartbreaking yet humorous. First of all I want to start by saying as a rule I don't read books that have any reference to the Big 'C' Word for personal reasons. So when I see the blurb for The Last Laugh I was drawn to it. I think it's due to the witty blurb I was...

    4.5 stars. 4.5 stars. Although a new author to me, if Tracy Bloom?s other books are like The Last Laugh she definitely has a new fan. Yes, on the surface it doesn?t seem like a novel about dying and infidelity would be especially enjoyable but it really is ? plus it?s about ...

    I Googled 'how to die' and the first on the list is befrienders.org, a support group for people with suicidal tendency. The next on the list is ways to die either fast or painless. Nothing on the list that suggested 'climbing this mountain, swimming that sea, becoming a marathon runner...

    This was heart-breaking !! The 'C' word I believe is the most dreaded word in the world right now. Sometimes, it makes life feel so unfair. Books like these teach us to live our lives to the fullest each day, to show our love to our family each day, to not take family for granted each ...
