The Last Thing He Told Me by Laura Dave Book Summary

The instant #1 New York Times bestselling mystery and Reese Witherspoon Book Club pick that’s captivated more than a million readers about a woman searching for the truth about her husband’s disappearance…at any cost.

“A fast-moving, heartfelt thriller about the sacrifices we make for the people we love most.” —Real Simple

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

Thrilling!Definitely a page turner, I enjoyed the story very much. I feel like Laura tried to be as location specific as she could but there were a few details that she neglected. The story itself seemed really simple in the beginning, but unfortunately lost me a few times towards the end. Overall, it’s a quick and easy read, wouldn’t be surprised if this turns into a movie/tv series!.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

Fantastic!Loved this book, very easy to read. Interesting characters with strong bonds and surprising twists. Highly recommend..Score: 5/5

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

Page turner!Loved this story start to finish. Couldn’t put it down! Excellent read!.Score: 5/5

Not that goodI didn’t enjoy the book, found the moral of the story a bit stale and used by many authors before. Too many inconsistencies or mistakes. No legal bar in San Francisco is open at 3am, especially in a “boutique” hotel. No bar will serve you old fashioned in a martini glass. Labradors is the most friendly dog breed and make bad guard dogs. There is a middle seat on almost every plane. Monterey is not located on the peninsula, not even close. It’s not possible to get 600 thousand dollars in cash on a minute notice. The main character goes to length to “hide” by using somebody else’s credit card, but then uses Uber as soon as she gets to Austin. And so on. I just get irritated when authors feed you lies like that or think we are stupid and won’t notice..Score: 1/5

Just bad.Author’s writing is very hard to keep up with. Story plot had so many possible openings for really good twists that we’d never used. Ending was basically nothing.

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

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

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

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
