The Last of the Stanfields | Marc Levy
6 posts | 6 read | 9 to read
A mystery, a love story, and a search through a shadowy past. Two strangers unite in this novel of family secrets by international bestselling author Marc Levy, the most read contemporary French author in the world. When London journalist Eleanor-Rigby Donovan receives an anonymous letter alluding to a crime committed by her deceased mother, her life is turned upside down. It points her to a bar on the Baltimore Harbor, where she finds a stranger who has received the same mysterious letter about his own mother. Together, Eleanor-Rigby and this young man, George-Harrison Collins, embark on a quest through the shadowy past of the Stanfields, a moneyed Maryland family full of unimaginable secrets. These secrets will transport them back decades, across continents, and to a mysterious crime long buried...until now.

I found Robert and Hanna's story to be the most compelling, dating back to World War II. Eleanor-Rigby and George-Harrison felt a little flat and predictable. I thought the mysteries were given away in the plot too easily, but the characters kept me interested and the story itself made up for it.

What a great story!!! Multiple narrators, multiple timelines, one complicated and layered mystery that slowly comes together. Each chapter revealing a little more until you are finally given all the answers. I highly recommend this one.

Maybe it's better in its original French (the French cover is more exciting at least)? I finished this through the decades mystery but quite slowly.

The characters and plot never quite felt real or as fun as they seemed like they should be to me. It was lacking a certain je ne sais quoi.

Tamra 😑 One of THOSE weeks. 5mo
Karisa @Tamra Yup! Dragged along but not enough to bail completely. 🤗 5mo

This was my #KindleFirst pick for December, I really had a hard time choose this month also but hope this one will turn out okay.

DivineDiana Thanks for the reminder! I have to make my selection! 9mo
KCCOkatey @DivineDiana I had a hard time choosing this month again because nothing stuck out at me. I was hoping December would have better choices than last month. 9mo
