A “gripping” (Entertainment Weekly) mystery about a woman who thinks she’s found the love of her life—until he disappears.
Before Owen Michaels disappears, he smuggles a note to his beloved wife of one year: Protect her. Despite her confusion and fear, Hannah Hall knows exactly to whom the note refers—Owen’s sixteen-year-old daughter, Bailey. Bailey, who lost her mother tragically as a child. Bailey, who wants absolutely nothing to do with her new stepmother.
As Hannah’s increasingly desperate calls to Owen go unanswered, as the FBI arrests Owen’s boss, as a US marshal and federal agents arrive at her Sausalito home unannounced, Hannah quickly realizes her husband isn’t who he said he was. And that Bailey just may hold the key to figuring out Owen’s true identity—and why he really disappeared.
Hannah and Bailey set out to discover the truth. But as they start putting together the pieces of Owen’s past, they soon realize they’re also building a new future—one neither of them could have anticipated.
With its breakneck pacing, dizzying plot twists, and evocative family drama, The Last Thing He Told Me is a riveting mystery, certain to shock you with its final, heartbreaking turn.

The Last Thing He Told MeOutstanding book I greatly enjoyed reading. Hannah was a very admirable character, lucky to have had a steady and responsible grandfather to instill courage and strength in the face of tremendous adversity and loss. That obviously gave her the fortitude to make some tough but sound decisions to benefit her step daughter. Hannah made the best decision for Bailey that only someone in her shoes with her unique background could have made - knowing the hole in your heart that is never filled when one or both of your parents leave …. But that is actually a blessing in the long run when it results in a better outcome..Score: 5/5

The Last Thing He Said ToMeGreat read. I haven’t read a book for many years and am hooked now. Will definitely buy more of her books..Score: 5/5
UnbelievableI read the book and concluded I hate it. The story makes no sense. Why is this woman who is apparently a common woodshopper playing hardball with US Marshalls and FBI? The author does not include any believeable details about the government agencies to indicate she did any research into their operating procedures. The main character is a complete unbelievable moron. The writing is okay; at least it is digestable. The author also makes characters homosexual for no reason whatsoever. Do not recommend..Score: 1/5

Great storyRecommend it to everyone.Score: 5/5
Promising story but too repetitive and obviousThe opening was promisingly intriguing, but the way the story is told gets quite annoying… I felt the repetitive descriptions becomes too forced, ie. how much the main character loves her spouse, how confusing the spouse departure is etc. Overall, I wouldn’t recommend the book. Not too happy with Reese’s bookclub recommendation this time :(.Score: 3/5
CaptivatingI don’t get the chance to read often so when I do, I need a book that draws me in from the start. I couldn’t put this down. Great read!.Score: 1/5

My best read this summerI couldn’t put this book down! I would 10/10 recommend this to anyone. The way the story just makes you continue to want more turning page after page. Although I wish we got more at the ending I think we got just enough to close out the story..Score: 5/5

DullToo much main character monologue. Story takes forever to get going, and it is not captivating..Score: 1/5
Ok but…Decent plot, but it has too many convenient connections and coincidences that irritate the reader. Bailey doesn’t seem to have any lovable qualities that make the reader rally for her situation. Rather, it is easy to hate her rather than understand or sympathize with her. Also many of the flashbacks are unnecessary and irrelevant..Score: 3/5

A book I simply could not put down!I wasn't expecting much from this book but this book surprised me and how! From the moment I picked it up, I simply could not put it down without knowing how the story would end. Did I gasp a handful g times? Yes. Did I shed a tear at the very end? Most definitely. If ym are looking for a suspense novel that is a real pageturner, look no further!.Score: 5/5
