One Last Step (A Tara Mills Mystery—Book One) by Sarah Sutton Book Summary

ONE LAST STEP (A Tara Mills Mystery—Book One) is the debut novel in a new FBI mystery series by debut author Sarah Sutton.

Two hikers go missing along the Appalachian Trail, leaving only a bloodstained forest behind them, and when another hiker collapses on someone’s porch in New Hampshire, murdered by crossbow, the local police realize they have a serial killer on their hands––and need to call in the FBI.

FBI Agent Tara Mills is young, brilliant and new to the force. With a promising career in front of her, she faces the ultimate test when she is assigned the case. It soon proves to be more challenging than she ever could have imagined––an impossible riddle that leaves even her seasoned partner stumped.

Meanwhile, something about the case stirs a darkness within her––a tortured past that even her long-term boyfriend doesn’t fully understand. As nightmares consume her, she only hopes that her past will not come back to ruin her once again.

As more hikers go missing, and with her job on the line, Tara finds herself on a race against time as she combs through the forest’s trails. Peeling back each layer, she soon realizes that she is up against a true diabolical mastermind. And just when she thinks she has it all figured out, her instincts lead her to the most shocking truth of all.

Book #2 in the series––ONE LAST BREATH––is also now available!

Promising Plot but . . .But the writing needs polishing and some study of FBI procedures. The idea that only two agents would be assigned to a critical investigation and that they’d have to meet a tight schedule strikes me as unlikely..Score: 3/5

Nice MysteryI really enjoyed the buildup. The mystery behind the main character. Hopefully the other characters get more meat in the backstory in the next book. Pacing was good, Boyfriends is too...soft? Idk, he’s kinda whiny then overly apologetic. Very interested in what her repressed memory brought up..Score: 4/5

Thrilling!This was a really exciting read that had me hooked right away. FBI agent Tara is dealing with past trauma, while working a deadly case,involving presumed murdered hikers on the Appalachian Trail, as a new agent. She is partnered with an experienced agent, Warren. But they have to learn to lean on each other to solve the case..Score: 5/5

Well Paced BookI enjoyed this book. This is the first book I have read in this genre and was not disappointed. I will definitely be reading the 2nd and 3rd in this series..Score: 4/5

Great mysteryI really enjoyed reading this suspenseful mystery. My interest was grabbed from the start and kept to the end. The story is very well written with well-developed characters.

One Last StepGreat book really held my attention. Couldn’t put it down..Score: 5/5

Too much a heroineFirst time I read this author. The heroine, Tara, was lionized. Predictable that she would ride off to save the day while disobeying her superiors and then they would fall over themselves saying they were sorry. Tease regarding her father was pretty blatant attempt to set up a “fugitive “ plot line for the second and subsequent books..Score: 2/5

One Last StepGreat read very suspenseful. Love reading how they get into the minds of criminals and sometimes figure how they work..Score: 5/5

Enjoyment!I like this book because it kept me wanting to turn pages until the very end. Tara Mills is who I wanted to be when I was a kid. She’s tough, polite, questions herself, believes in herself, and gets the job done! I liked the fact that her partner was put in his place by not trusting her instinct. I think it is a lesson he won’t forget anytime soon. I look forward to continuing her saga..Score: 5/5

One Last StepThis book was fantastic! I could not put it down. Near the end I was anxious as to what was going to happen. Very good book with great characters. Look forward to reading more by Sarah Sutton..Score: 5/5

Great Mystery/Thriller especially for a slow readerI have always loved mysteries/crime books, but am such a slow reader. I’ve had 2 paperback mystery books that were recommended to me that I’ve been trying to read for 2 years and never finished. I got this app for a beach vacation and got this book and read it in 3 days. I could not stop reading it. It was very thrilling and suspenseful. An easy read. A lot of books I’ve read tend to put too much detail into the small irrelevant things and this book was not like that. Told you everything you needed to know about the characters and got right to the point. Always kept you guessing. Amazing!.Score: 5/5

Scarred and a rogueA new FBI agent suffers from nightmares about her mother’s death and panic attacks.

Title is goodThe story is good it kept me going. But… it’s not believable. I found myself rolling my eyes. First off the FBI would not let a new agent take the lead. The story would have been better had the senior agent led as should be. It would have made the story better more believable. The author jumped the gun here trying to make Tara a great agent too soon. However kudos to the author for keeping me wanting to read the next book to find out who actually killed her mother..Score: 4/5

Good bookEnjoyed the suspense.Score: 4/5

Poor readPlot was so predictable and unrealistic. Characters were one dimensional and you never felt a like or dislike for any of them. Tara should have been terminated for her actions. She has no business being an FBI agent. After all those year of therapy, she still relives the past. Now she believes in dreams. No way would I put myself through the torture of reading another one of her books..Score: 1/5
