Her best friend is dead. Now everyone thinks she's a killer. Littleport, Maine is like two separate towns: a vacation paradise for wealthy holidaymakers and a simple harbour community for the residents who serve them. Friendships between locals and visitors are unheard of - but that's just what happened with Avery Greer and Sadie Loman. Each summer for a decade the girls are inseparable - until Sadie is found dead. When the police rule the death a suicide, Avery can't help but feel there are those in the community, including a local detective and Sadie's brother Parker, who blame her. Someone knows more than they're saying, and Avery is intent on clearing her name before she's branded a killer.

This was a fun, quick read that I probably never would have picked up on my own if not for a coworker bringing it in to school and physically handing it to me to read... I guest the main aspect of the twist ending, but there were a couple surprises along the way. My one annoyance was that the main characters were supposed to be in their mid-20s but it read very YA to me. Honestly, I might buy it for my library at school.

This was pretty melancholy for a thriller but I enjoyed the story and was totally surprised at the reveal of the bad guy.

“Littleport, Maine, has always felt like two separate towns: an ideal vacation enclave for the wealthy & a simple harbor community for the year-round residents whose livelihoods rely on service to the visitors.

Typically, fierce friendships never develop between a local girl & a summer girl, but that‘s what happens with visitor Sadie Loman & Littleport resident Avery Greer. Each summer the girls are inseparable—until Sadie is found dead.”

Left me questioning until the very end. I liked the way it wrapped up.

6/10 The first half of the book is just not gripping, the suspense gets better yet I feel like character development really lacks in a lot of characters. Not the worst thriller I‘ve ever read but definitely not the best.

Moving into college has totally hurt my motivation to read. Everything is new and overwhelming, but today on a dark Sunday, I am getting back in my groove. It took me a second to get into it, but I‘m excited for classes to start and to go back to my comfort hobby which is reading. Everything‘s going to be okay.

Not a terrible thriller, but not overly exciting. It lacked tension and the side characters weren‘t particularly interesting, but it was a pretty quick read. 3⭐️

This is the third Megan Miranda book I‘ve read and all of them have just been middle of the road reads for me. I have an ARC of her next - maybe that will be my last?

AUDIOBOOKINGWITHLEAH I've been feeling the same lately about her books... 1y
candority @AUDIOBOOKINGWITHLEAH It‘s disappointing! 1y

30% through and bailing. Life's too short for dull books.
I feel no level of suspense. I don't connect with MC, Avery, and her friendship with Sadie is equally as blasé to me.
I'm not curious about anything yet which for a suspense novel is not a good sign.
The characters and town seem too on the nose- more typecasts than real.

Overall, I enjoyed this! The second half grabbed my attention more than the first. I liked “All The Missing Girls” by this author better. It would be a fun beach read!

The Last House Guest ~ Megan Miranda. I picked this up randomly from the library based on the cover, Miranda had also written All The Missing Girls which I had enjoyed. I devoured this book in a day. It was fast paced and intriguing. Just what I needed to emerge from my recent reading funk.

Not a fan of this one. Love Reese's Book Club, otherwise this book would have been a DNF for me. Dull, redious read that never really hits its stride.

3/5 for me. It was entertaining but nothing special. Pretty predictable in my opinion. Didn‘t really feel any connection to the characters or their stories. Good for a beach read though.

I can tell the author wrote the book thinking we‘d be so invested in the main character Avery. But I wasnt & didnt care about her at all. There wasn‘t anything suspenseful happening & it was a boring listen. I finished it on the hope it would get better & it didnt. Too much description & too much telling, instead of showing. I wasn‘t invested in Avery & Sadie‘s friendship. Dont know how this was picked 4 Reese‘s book club. Disappointment overall.

I love it when the cds for audiobooks on CD are colorful! I‘m on Disc 2 now. A little slow for my liking so far, but hopefully it picks up soon. This was a Reese‘s book club pick so I have high expectations! And I loved Miranda‘s previous novel All the Missing Girls.

I have to say I was mostly disappointed in this book. I have always enjoyed Megan Miranda novels and had high expectations for this one. It was definitely lacking in suspense and I didn‘t feel any real connection or investment in the characters. It kept me guessing enough to keep reading, but I expected more ⭐️⭐️1/2

MyNamesParadise That‘s exactly how I feel about this book! I expected more because I‘ve enjoyed her previous book and it was a Reese‘s Book Club pick. It really is disappointing. There‘s no suspense and I couldn‘t care less about the characters. 2y

Great suspense novel! Just when you think you‘ve got things figured out, Miranda throws a curveball. I figured out pieces, but there were some things I didn‘t get work out until the end. Will definitely be reading other books by this author!

This book slowly unraveled its suspense. It wasn‘t one of those quick page turners that I couldn‘t put down. There is a great deal of character development and and a slow reveal of new details, past and present. Before the end, I had figured out “whodunnit.” The author still had a few surprises and tricks up her sleeve, however. All in all, it was a good book that I enjoyed reading.

Starting to think Reese‘s book club has more misses than hits...this was just an ok thriller. Walked away from this to finish another book a few times and never felt a strong pull back to finish it.

hes7 Agreed. I didn‘t think this one was that great. 2y

This one had suspense and intrigue, but I didn't feel vested in the characters. There were several subplots and plenty of red herrings, but ultimately lacked that little something that would have elevated it from a good mystery thriller to a great one. Recommended for those looking for an easy beach read. Not recommend for those looking for a procedural mystery.

allureofbeauty I just grabbed that while it was on sale. 2y

Enjoyed the mystery, however it was hard to tell how old the characters really were. Not sure if it was because of the narrator of the audio or the writing but they sounded/felt like high school or college, but they were clearly adults.

It was a good mystery that kept you wondering who did it but the ending did not satisfy me and the story began to drag.

MusicallyMorgan That‘s how I felt about All the Missing Girls. It was a good idea that wasn‘t delivered well. 2y

I am ready for another #bookspin, #doublebookspin, maybe #triplebookspin. One of the few bonuses of this whole ordeal is getting the extra reading time. That is when I can sit down and turn my brain off for a little while to focus on a book. I have to admit that is hard to do some days. Especially with kids at home, and they start school next week. I am getting lots of unread books off my shelves though, and can‘t wait to see which ones are next.

GinaKButler Great list! 3y
TheAromaofBooks Great list!! Focusing on reading can be challenging right now - hopefully drawing three numbers means everyone can find a book that works! 3y

I love Megan Miranda and was excited to read this, but I found it off putting and difficult to follow at times. I found myself reading passages over more than once, trying to grasp if there were subtle nuances I was missing or if it was just poorly written in spots. I figured out both reveals long before they actually happened, and I just wasn‘t wowed by this story. Furthermore, I didn‘t much care for the heroine. #liketheauthorbutnotthisbook

Megabooks I did the audiobook and it was my second favorite to All the Missing Girls. I really like Megan in general too! 3y
Bookgirl @Megabooks I‘m glad you liked it! Only has a 72% on here and there are a lot of so so reviews saying what I felt, so that made me feel a bit better. Always a bummer when you can‘t get into a book by an author you look forward to 3y

I really wanted to love this book but found it jumped around too much and was a little predictable. It‘s been awhile since I‘ve read a good mystery so I did enjoy the change of book type but overall didn‘t love it.
