The Last House Guest

Summary: “Once again, Megan Miranda has crafted the perfect summer thriller. The Last House Guest is twisty and tense, with a pace that made my heart race. An edge-of-your-seat, up-all-night read.” —Riley Sager, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Time I Lied

“No one can be trusted in the latest chilling thriller from master of suspense, Megan Miranda. The Last House Guest is a lightning-fast mystery, full of menace and unexpected twists and turns that will have readers on the edge of their seats. A riveting read!” —Mary Kubica, New York Times bestselling author of The Good Girl

“If you want to sample the black humor of summer resort relationships, have breakfast at the local diner of a pretty coastal town like Littleport, Me., the setting for Megan Miranda’s The Last House Guest. Dizzying plot twists and multiple surprise endings are this author’s stock in trade, but she warms them up by establishing the close friendship between Sadie Loman…and Avery Greer…And, oh boy, does she ever know how to write a twisty-turny ending (or two, or more).” —Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review

Littleport, Maine, has always felt like two separate towns: an ideal vacation enclave for the wealthy, whose summer homes line the coastline; and 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 and a summer girl—but that’s just what happens with visitor Sadie Loman and Littleport resident Avery Greer. Each summer for almost a decade, the girls are inseparable—until Sadie is found dead. While 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 the facts get twisted against her.

Another thrilling novel from the bestselling author of All the Missing Girls and The Perfect Stranger, Megan Miranda’s The Last House Guest is a smart, twisty read with a strong female protagonist determined to make her own way in the world.


Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

I’ve really enjoyed Megan Miranda’s previous books, All The Missing Girls and The Perfect Stranger, so when I saw THIS book, I knew I wanted it.


What I Liked:

The cover. Ya’ll this cover is AMAZEBALLS. First the colors- I am in love. But there is the crazy cool texture to the cover- you can feel the rain splatter against the window and I am SO loving that tactile element.

How Megan kept me guessing. I had several thoughts- even was thinking that Avery was losing her ever-loving mind…… and then it all begin to make sense. And I thought that was great.

The actual ending of the book. Megan could have ended it in a way that I kinda thought she was headed- but it would have been too neat. The ending she chose fit the book to a T.


Bottom line: This book, for the most part, really worked for me. There was a couple places it was a teensy bit draggy for me- but I def recommend reading The Last House Guest.
