The Last to Vanish
Summary: New York Times bestselling author Megan Miranda returns with a gripping and propulsive thriller that opens with the disappearance of a journalist who is investigating a string of vanishings in the resort town of Cutter’s Pass—will its dark secrets finally be revealed?
Ten years ago, Abigail Lovett fell into a job she loves, managing The Passage Inn, a cozy, upscale resort nestled in the North Carolina mountain town of Cutter’s Pass. Cutter’s Pass is best known for its outdoor offerings—rafting and hiking, with access to the Appalachian trail by way of a gorgeous waterfall—and its mysterious history. As the book begins, the string of unsolved disappearances that has haunted the town is once again thrust into the spotlight when journalist Landon West, who was staying at the inn to investigate the story of the vanishing trail, then disappears himself.
Abby has sometimes felt like an outsider within the community, but she’s come to view Cutter’s Pass as her home. When Landon’s brother Trey shows up looking for answers, Abby can’t help but feel the town closing ranks. And she’s still on the outside. When she finds incriminating evidence that may bring them closer to the truth, Abby soon discovers how little she knows about her coworkers, neighbors, and even those closest to her.
Megan Miranda brings her best writing to The Last to Vanish, a riveting thriller filled with taut suspense and shocking twists that will keep you guessing until the very end.
Traveling With T’s Thoughts:
Normally, I love Megan Miranda books. Her previous books, The Girl from Widow Hills, The Last House Guest, The Perfect Stranger, and All The Missing Girls, I’ve enjoyed to varying degrees (some are better than others!)
However, The Last To Vanish was truly just ok. And I’m completely disappointed because it had such an AMAZING set up.
What I liked:
Well the cover is amazing.
The set up of the story. A place where people go missing and a journalist who went to investigate why those people went missing goes missing himself? I mean, that’s just gold for a plot.
What didn’t work for me:
I’m not sure if anyone else would consider this to be a “slow burner” but for me, there were lots of times it was just too slow. And then when things did get tp moving, the things that were supposed to shock, just didn’t shock me like they should have.
Bottom line: I’ll probably buy her next book, but this one was just ok.

Megan Miranda has written some of my favorite thrillers, so I’m sad to hear this one didn’t live up to her previous books. Good to know though and go in with appropriate expectations 🙂
I was def disappointed this did not live up to my expectations. But maybe her next book will!
