The Last House Guest
The Last House Guest | Megan Miranda
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 book! I could put it down - the mystery was really catching and the author kept me on the edge of my seat. The end did leave me wanting to know a lot more - so this would be a 4 rather than 5 star for me.

I haven't posted in a while.

This is a mystery/thriller. It is excellent. If you like that sort of thing.

Overall, I love the story and characters in this book. I want to visit Littleport, Maine and see the beautiful scenery Miranda describes so lovingly. Unfortunately, the oversimplified process takes The Last House Guest down from 4/5 to 3/5 for me. I really wanted to love this ending, but it felt too rushed and messy when it came down to it.

The Mushroom Forest
The Last House Guest | Megan Miranda

Littleport, Maine is like two different towns. For most of the year it is a small town with very little action, but in summer it becomes a destination for the rich and reckless. Though the town-people and the summer-crowd don't tend to mix, Sadie and Avery have managed to become best friends. However, when Sadie is found dead, everything changes. With her job and her reputation in jeopardy, Avery must figure out what happened before it's too late.

When Avery Greer is befriended by Sadie Loman, one of Littleport‘s rich vacation families, Avery‘s life takes a different turn. Now she has a job, a home, & a best friend- until Sadie is found dead. Suicide or murder?

A slow start but a pacy conclusion, which seems to be the author‘s style. I liked it. 4🌟

Thanks to NetGalley & publishers, Atlantic Books / Corvus, for the opportunity to read an ARC. #NetGalley

I loved this book! Sometimes with thrillers I can figure it all out right away which just isn‘t any fun. But not with this book! I thought I had it figured out but boy was I wrong! This is a perfect, quick summer read! I definitely recommend it 😊

SilversReviews That was the same for me. You have to be a major detective to figure it out. 😊 3w

NEW RELEASE DAY!!!

I've been waiting anxiously and can't believe this beauty is actually mine. You guys, the cover is tactile! You can actually feel the raised raindrops on the cover. I love it!

Now, do I put my current book on hold (A Nearly Normal Family) to dig into this one? That's my big dilemma...

JohannaRose I have the same dilemma! I am reading Six of Crows but decided I'll just put that on hold for a minute and read The Last House Guest first hehe. And I was so pleasantly surprised by the raised raindrops on the cover too! It certainly added something special, didn't it? 😃 4w
MaceyT15 @JohannaRose Totally agree about the raindrops. I think it elevates the quality of the book. Not that her books need elevating! I'm nearly finished with my current book now, so I'm just gonna stick it out. But will for sure start on this one by the weekend, if not sooner 4w
JohannaRose @MaceyT15 I totally agree! I love her books! I haven't read all of them yet I've read about 5 of them and my favorites are All The Missing Girls and The Safest Lies. I'm in the beginning of my book now so it's not so hard to switch over to this one, but I'd do the same as you and finish the one I'm on if I was pretty far into it. Happy reading! 😊 4w

MaceyT15 @JohannaRose I just realized you were the one that posted you met Megan the other day. I'm extremely jealous!!!! 🤯🤗 4w
JohannaRose @MaceyT15 Haha yes I did! Oh my gosh girl it was the first time I‘ve ever met an author and she was honestly the sweetest! She really is my favorite so getting to meet her and having her turn out to be so friendly was just more than I could have asked for! 4w
MaceyT15 @JohannaRose That sounds amazing!! I hope to meet her one day too. Her book tour isn't stopping anywhere in the midwest this time around, so I'll just have to be patient. 🙃⏱ 4w
JohannaRose @MaceyT15 I used to live in the Midwest! She did say she‘s working on something right now, so maybe she‘ll head that way for her next one! I hope you get to meet her too! 4w
MaceyT15 @JohannaRose I sure do hope so!! 🤞🤞 4w

This was an interesting mystery with some really good twists. I figured out some but the murderer was a surprise to me. The plot was steady but kept me turning the pages. The story jumps between present time and the previous summer when Sadie died but it's easy to follow. The ending was really good and finished the story just right. The whole story was well written and detailed. The location shone through in the writing.

I forgot to review this when I finished, but it was another great, satisfying mystery from Megan Miranda. I loved the setting, and the story kept me guessing until the end. Add this to your summer TBR stack! #arc #whodunnit

Avery is left with her grandmother's house after she passes, a wealthy family buys it, and they hire Avery to manage this house and their entire neighborhood of exclusive, rented summer cottages.

THE LAST HOUSE GUEST will be for you if you enjoy a beach setting, characters that have secrets, characters that are broken, and a mystery that keeps you guessing.

The ending is definitely a surprise. 4/5

Oh my gosh you guys! I MET MEGAN MIRANDA TONIGHT! She is on tour for her new book The Last House Guest. She is my favorite author and I‘m so happy! She even recognized me from me commenting on her Instagram and Twitter and her replying 😃 That made my week!! She is so kind and friendly! It was my first experience meeting an author and she certainly set the bar high! I‘m really looking forward to reading this new book! 😃😃

Scochrane26 This is a little morbid, but a few yrs ago, I wanted to go to a book fair about 4 hrs away to meet a fave author. For some reason I didn‘t go, & he died a few mths later (Pat conroy). So, now I try to meet authors if I have the chance. Glad you got to meet your favorite. Very cool! 4w
JoScho That‘s awesome! 4w
JohannaRose @Scochrane26 oh my gosh! I‘m so sorry that happened! It was probably such an eye opener to take advantage of the opportunities given to you! Thank you! I never know of other authors in my area but I‘m definitely going to keep my eyes open for them from now on! It was so cool! 4w

JohannaRose @JoScho Thank you! Honestly it was one of the best days I‘ve had in a long time 😊 4w
KathyWheeler @Scochrane26 That happened to me with Pat Conroy too — only he was 40 minutes away. I didn‘t go because I would not have gotten there in time if I left work at 5:00. I should‘ve just taken the time off. 😞 4w
Scochrane26 @KathyWheeler there‘s prob a lot of people who didn‘t get to meet him. 4w
KathyWheeler @Scochrane26 yeah. I think so. Now when I know an author I like is going to be here, I take that time off. 4w

Started well but ended up being a disappointment with some huge plot holes where you really had to suspend disbelief.... One in spoiler tags below if you don‘t want want to read the book..!

I also guessed the ‘whodunnit‘ fairly early on, so not a great example of this genre.

My favourite bit is the cover with its ‘actual, touchable‘ raindrops - tried to show them in the picture but I‘m not sure you can see the effect... 🌧

squirrelbrain The MC goes out on a boat trip for no reason, to a random island where the victim had been once. She wanders about and then ‘felt‘ that the victim had been there, so put her hand into a convenient nearby hollowed out log and pulled out a.... USB stick with some vital information on it. 🤔 🤷‍♀️ 1mo

THE LAST HOUSE GUEST is a great twisty read that transports us to the quaint coastal town of Littleport Maine. When Sadie fails to show up for the end of the summer annual party, Avery gets worried. She had just seen her... https://www.bluestockingreviews.com/blog/the-last-house-guest

I received an early copy of this book from the publisher.

I‘ve now read three books by this author and this one was by far my favorite. A truly great story and plot that kept me guessing from start to finish. And let me tell you, there were some jaw dropping twists near the end!! I really recommend this book. If you like suspenseful books you‘ll love this one.
