The Last Thing He Told Me by Laura Dave

I think I’ve been gravitating more towards domestic thrillers lately – I guess I’m looking for all the drama? Haha!

Thank you Simon and Schuster for my gifted ebook in exchange for my honest review.

Synopsis: 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 FBI 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, together. But as they start putting together the pieces of Owen’s past, they soon realize they are also building a new future. One neither Hannah nor Bailey could have anticipated.

This book has been defined as a thriller in some online reviews and synopsis, but it is definitely a domestic thriller with lots of family drama. It’s a bit of a slow burn, just because there is a lot of building up of the characters and their relationships. I think the character development is truly what shines in this novel. A really great choice for a summer read.

4/5 Stars
