Book review: The Last Thing He Told Me by Laura Dave


Hannah is shocked to find that her husband of only one year has disappeared without a trace…….except for a note. All the note tells her is two words: Protect her.

Hannah knows this is referring to his daughter named Bailey. Bailey and Hannah have a very strained relationship. Hannah has no children of her own, and Bailey’s mother died when Bailey was young.

As the FBI and US Marshall office get involved, Hannah realizes this is is deeper than she ever imagined. Owen’s boss is arrested and her house is searched.

Hannah and Bailey go on a trip to try to find out what Owen was hiding and what the past holds. Bailey knows more than she realizes once her memories are triggered.

My Thoughts:

I had read mixed reviews regarding this book prior to reading it. I was pleasantly surprised that this was one of my top books of 2021. It keeps me on edge the entire book, and the ending was satisfying.

The Last Thing He Told Me was more of a suspenseful mystery with two strong female characters than a thriller. I absolutely loved this book, and I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good mystery!
