“The day Shaley O’Conner has dreamed of all her life is shattered by a nightmare.
On a lavish estate in California guarded from the media, Shaley’s mom, rock star Rayne O’Connor, is marrying her teen sweetheart and Shaley’s father, Gary Donovon. It’s a dream come true for Shaley, who has always longed for the father she never knew. But minutes before the wedding, Shaley is kidnapped.
Who is this man who has taken her—and why?

This is the final volume of the Rayne tour, and while I didn’t enjoy it as much as the first two, I really appreciated the overall hopeful message.

I thought the chapters following Shaley were the best and she was really resourceful in how she dealt with the kidnapping. I didn’t like the sections following Shaley’s best friend added much to the plot. She really doesn’t do much in the series as a whole.

It reminded me a bit of an episode of Criminal Minds with the swat team and FBI searching for
Third Time's The Charm!

Book one was hard to read. It didn't grip me, hard to keep the pages turning. Book two was much better, but still not great. I'm not even sure why I finished book one let alone moving on to book two except that I'm stubborn that way. Once I start something, I rarely quit. I'm not saying these book were horrible. DEFINITELY NOT!! Just not on par with Collins' other books. Having said that, book three, Final Touch, was really good. It's hard to know what I would do in Shaley

This entire book felt like a super drawn out end scene of a thriller.

Final Touch by Brandilyn & Amberly Collins is the final book in the Rayne Tour series. Shaley O'Conner is on the brink of having all her dreams come true. Her parents are finally going to be married after years of forced separation. Moments before the wedding, Shaley is kidnapped by a strange man insisting that she will become his wife and form a new colony of Christians in a remote area, far away from the terribly influence of rock music, like what her mother Rayne, sings. Her parents are f ...more

This is a fun and adventurous little book! I read this all in one day – wrapped up with Shaley’s adventures from page one! This is the third book in “The Rayne Tour” series, but is fine as a stand-alone title (at least I thought so, as I haven’t read the first two yet, and jumped just fine into this one!)

Shaley’s abductor was certainly a wacko! After he’d nabbed her and told her his plans, I confess I’d be freaked out if I was in her shoes. But Shaley wasn’t – and this wasn’t because she acted l

The end to Last Breath was kind of mysterious so I decided to go on reading to this thrilling novel. Right before Gary and Rayne were about to say “I do” all of a sudden Shaley ends up missing. As time flies and moves forward descending; the FBI and Swat team get wrapped up in it keep their eye on everything possible. Every clue of what happened to her, why it happened, and when they were going to find her. I found out that in the past there was the stalker who is determined to achieve Shaley as ...more

My daughter and I have been waiting for this book! Third in a YA suspense series, we couldn't wait to see where this book was going to take us. My daughter snatched it up as soon as I opened it and I had to wait my turn... it was worth it! This book starts about a year after the last one ended and there is going to be a wedding, except there is a kidnapping instead and then a cross country chase and close calls and excitement and I read it in one sitting! So good! This whole series is just a gre ...more

I love, love, love books by Brandilyn Collins.
Each one is fantastic and this one was superb.
This book is book three in The Rayne Tour series.
I didn't get to read the first three, but still this made a
great stand alone book.
The daughter (Shaley) of the famous singer Rayne O' Connor gets
kidnapped. It is quite a fantastic way how they get getting clues and
how Shaley herself helps to give the FBI and police clues.
I really loved this book and so would you.
I highly recommend it and will be keeping my

i won this book from goodreads. I have to say this was a very nice book. I liked how it was wrote and how the parts melded into one another. I never got lost in the book which i have before in some books trying to figure out who was talking and everything. I also liked how the chapters were marked so it helped you determine who was talking in that chapter or who the chapter was about. I liked the message in the book or the one i got out of it about never giving up.

It was such an easy read, clearly a teen reader book. Having said that, I still enjoyed the story. There was suspense, heightened by going back and forth between characters in each chapter. This is the 3rd book in the series. I hadn't read the first two, but that wasn't a disadvantage when reading this one. I didn't get so caught up in the characters that I feel the need to read the first two books. This one was pretty decent, I won't be reading the first two though.

This trilogy, though listed as Junior Fiction, would be enjoyable for any age. This series has it all...murder, who-done-it, kidnapping, famous keeps you on the edge of your seat guessing what may happen and then surprises you. A quick read, but good!!

Enjoyable last book of triology. A true seat belt tale, fast paced with no pause in the action. Should read other two first but also a great stand alone read.
