The Last Invitation
Summary: Darby Kane, the author of the critically acclaimed and #1 International Bestseller Pretty Little Wife, has crafted another gripping and twisty suspense about an invitation to an exclusive club that comes with deadly consequences.
They meet the second Tuesday of every month and vote…and then someone dies.
Over the last few years, prominent people—a retired diplomat, beloved basketball coach, the CEO of an empire—have died in a series of fluke accidents and shocking suicides. There’s no apparent connection, no signs of foul play. Behind it all is a powerful group of women, the Sophie Foundation, who meet over wine and cheese to review files of men who behave very, very badly, and then mete out justice.
Jessa Hall jumped at the mysterious, exclusive invitation to this secret club. The invite comes when she’s at her lowest, aching for a way to take back control. After years of fighting and scratching to get ahead, she’s ready for a chance to make the “bad guys” lose. Jessa soon realizes, though, just how far she’s willing to go and how dangerous this game has become.
Once in the group, it’s impossible to get out. She has nowhere to turn except former friend Gabby Fielding who is investigating the mysterious death of her ex-husband. Aligned in their goal to take down the Foundation, Gabby and Jessa need each other but working together doesn’t mean they trust each other…or that either will survive to tell the truth.
Traveling With T’s Thoughts:
I REALLY liked Pretty Little Wife and thought The Replacement Wife was pretty good, so I was eager to listen to The Last Invitation.
First thing, I REALLY wish that Karissa Vacker had narrated. Not that there was anything wrong with the narrators, but I just really enjoy Karissa.
What I liked:
The cover is pretty cool.
The plot of the book. A group of women determined to enact their own brand of justice on misbehaving men is def an intriguing concept.
What didn’t wow me:
Jessa was a character that I could never truly feel myself rooting for. Her interactions with Gabby would at times put me on edge as they bickered back and forth.
Bottom line: I enjoyed this book, but not as good as Pretty Little Wife.
