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.

Good BonesStoryline was decent, but a bit sporadic. A good idea for a book and a nice final page but it didn’t strike me as much of a page turner. I wanted to know the answer to the obvious questions, but I only completed the book out of commitment to reading it all the way through once I started. Then again, I have never written a book. Props to Laura Dave. 🙂.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

So Much Potential…The ending was terrible. The climax was great, but the ending left off like a Netflix series where there should be a next episode, not the end of a book. Disappointing..Score: 2/5

To other readersEasy read, enjoyable twist and turns!.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
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
Five starsThis was a good read..Score: 5/5

The Last Thing He Said To MeI couldn’t put the book down with all its twists & turns, regardless of how many other important things I had to do. You could never guess where the next clue was leading to. Such realistic like-able characters..Score: 4/5
DisappointingThe premise is compelling but the characters are not believable. Hanna is insecure because her mother abandoned her early in her childhood, but her grandfather raised her and taught her to do woodwork. Somehow she becomes a popular craft furniture maker. Strangely, there is nothing in the book about her craft, about which she shows no real interest. She moves spontaneously from Manhattan to Sausalito with a man she barely knows, who has a 16-year-old daughter. The author portrays Hanna as insecure but willing to take incredible risks — what? The daughter is portrayed as a grumpy and disdainful, begrudging Hanna for not being her dead mother. She is thinly drawn to behaves stupidly, as if she had no sense, when she is supposed to smart and talented. The end play is totally unbelievable. Good idea, but poor execution..Score: 3/5

Predictable. Disappointing Clichés.This book is filled with ridiculously disappointing clichés that are offensive. Mobster who works for the “organization” for smokes cigarettes drinks whiskey and has bodyguards who wear tight suits? Who lets a woman he’s never met free after decades of resentment and bitterness and a stint in prison? A woman who deserts the “love of her life” for a kid she barely has a connection with? It’s started great and then just crashed at tidy predictable end..Score: 1/5

It's okWith the amazing female fiction writers out right now (Kristin Hannah, Kate Quinn, Delia Owens, Tana French, Lisa Jewell, Colleen Hoover, Taylor Jenkins Reid, Alice Feeney), this book just falls flat. Not believable, lots of holes, but she wrote a book. That is huge, so that's the 3 stars. But I won't buy any more of her books with so many other amazing writers out there. I originally bought it because Reese Book club recommended it, I guess like a lot of people did..Score: 3/5
ExcellentA great quick read that keeps you guessing from the beginning..Score: 4/5
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

Eh…Pretty dry, very slow. Felt like a lot of ‘hanging in there’ while I waited for something exciting to happen. This is the first time I’ve read this author and it will probably be the last. Her writing style of 99% internal dialogue is tiresome. Live and learn 🤷🏻♀️.Score: 3/5
