Avery Greer belongs to the small town life of Littleport, Maine and Sadie Loman belongs to the wealthy summer crowd The two communities never mixuntil Avery and Sadie Every summer the two of them are arm in armwell until the summer it happens The flashlight swung back, and that was when I saw them, a glint caught in the beam of light I felt the earth tilting. She leaves behind a cryptic note that the police use as evidence for suicide There are things even you don t know.I can t do this any.Remember me. But nobody knows Sadie like Avery, and Avery is convinced something is afoot A close knit family holds secrets.A small town can still hide untold horrors But I knew how fast a spiral could grab you, how far the surface could seem from below. No one is looking for anything any and Avery senses that the answers are there, lurking just below the surface. This one was interesting but it lacked a little pizzazz for my taste The mystery was there bu
This is my second book by the author and I have to say she s great at creating small town with lots of secrets It was a very quick and easy beach read even happens in a beach town Compelling enough to finish it but not enough that you ll skip on your vacation to stay in your room to read it.It s also probably one of the best covers I
I ve known enough of loss to accept that grief may lose its sharpness with time, but memory only tightens Moments replay. A few years back, Megan Miranda s story told in reverse, All the Missing Girls, found me so impressed I scrambled to secure a treasured copy of my very own Meaning, I went out of my way to track down a personalized signed copy from one of her book tour stops That hardcover now owns a rare piece of real estate among my collection of greats I only mention this tidbit because it lends credibility to my expectations and subsequent disappointment with her recent work With two of Miranda s releases since ATMG, The Perfect Stranger and now The Last House Guest, I ve gone in hoping she would somehow emulate my initial experience with her storytelling That the literary journey I was preparing to embark on would prove to be something other than typical Maybe even memorable Now, after two bouts of mediocre reading, it s clear that s probably never going to happen My reasoning behind that thought 1 it s a very real possibility that I built ATMG up to be something than it actually was, 2 my pickiness is at an all time high as of late, and 3 chances are my newly acquired skepticism won t allow me to give her work another shot.In all fairness, The Last House Guest starts off with immense promise Miranda builds anticipation with her writing wizardry, piecing together thou
Dull and Dreary The Last House Guest is a slow burn mystery about a girl from the wrong side of the tracks whose world is shattered when her best friend is found dead of an apparent suicide Littleport, Maine is a town built on a class divide between the townies and wealthy vacationers After a rich girl kills herself, her best friend begins to question the events that led up to the suicide Alternating timelines from the past and present lead to secrets being unearthed.I had such high hopes for this book I knew going in it wasn t going to be All the Missing Girlsand I tried to lower my expectations but I apparently didn t lower them enough My issues started right off the bat when just couldn t connect with Avery, who is the narrator of The Last House Guest I actually pushed this book to the side and started reading another When I came back to it the second time around, I actually liked it than when I initially started reading it I slowly started to connect with the narrative but I was never able to fully immerse myself in the world of Littleport The Last House Guest is lacking in tension, suspense, drama, finesse, and depth I needed I was expecting However, this is not a total failure The foundation is there, but overall it felt incomplete There are times when the mystery is intriguing and some of the revelations about Avery s past made me want to know about Avery in the present At the same time, I was never able to get fully pulled into the s
Please take my review with a grain of salt, as I have many friends who have loved this in the range of 4 5 stars, but The Last House Guest fell short of the mark for me Awhile back, I fell head over heels for Miranda s All the Missing Girls the reverse narration and plot resolution have stuck with me for YEARS now, which is a rarity due to the many books juggling for attention in my dwindling memory space It could be that I ve simply consumed so many psychological thrillers that read in a similar manner with a similar follow through, or it could be that my connection to ATMG was a one and done deal, but I ve juggled my expectations and struggled with each adult novel the author has released since my first love affair with her writing I don t want to ramble, or repost the synopsis here for you, so I ll keep this brief in saying that there s not really anything wrong with this book, it just wasn t attention grabbing In a vast sea of psych thrillers, domestic suspense, and female driven mysteries, I m already finding myself grasping to remember the plot, as I m either confusing it with other stories I ve recently read or just didn t find it compelling enough to remember in its detailed entirety I still don t regret reading it, as the ending was a step up from many of the novels I ve read lately in this genre, and the brevity
Tumultuous, puzzling, a twisty page turner Oh my goodness where do I even start with this bookSo let s just say I have to go back and read the whole book over again well because that ending is making me want to do it LOLThis book reads extremely fast but while I was reading it though I was never fully immersed in this tale There was nothing that was grabbing me here until well the end and then it s like I wish that I would have spent the time with this book before reaching the end The book is just as puzzling as the author s writing style and that is all I m going to say.So I was definitely 3 stars all the way until I reached the ending which has made me bump it up to 4 stars Take the time with this one..Norma s Stats Cover Stunning, striking, suspenseful, mesmerizing, impressive, impactful and fitting representation to storyline coverlove This book wins my vote for best cover design ever Title Intriguing, relevant, suspenseful and a fitting representation to storyline Writing Prose Engaging, vivid, awkward, puzzling, readable, tense, and well written Okay, I know I m all over the place with the author s writing style but for the most part I found the writing style quite puzzling and thought it was packed full of riddles Then the ending..Plo
This is the second book I ve read from Megan Miranda and as with her prior book The Perfect Stranger, this one just didn t meet my expectations.Sadie and Avery are the best of friends As with most besties, they know each other inside and out, front to back So when Sadie s body is discovered from an apparent suicide Avery is certain Sadie would never take her own life, and is determined to find who murdered her friend Told from Avery s POV in the present and past timelines.While I was engaged by the story line, the execution never grabbed me I couldn t develop a connection with the players and was left wanting something With a good number of great reviews out there for this book, I do hope it works out better for you.I do still have Megan Miranda s All the Missing Girls sitting on my shelf and look forward to reading that one soon Hoping that one will have the Wow factor I ve been looking for in her bo
3.25 Stars rounded down.Twisty and Turny Sadie Loman and Avery Greer had been best friends for years when Sadie s body was found the night after a party Police suspected that she took her own life, though Avery never believed it Now, a year later, Avery has decided to search for clues to prove that someone murdered her best friend Told in two timelines, the night of the party, and the summer after, the suspects are those who attended the party Everyone who went had something to hide and you know what they say about secrets The Last House Guest is full of mystery, a web of lies and twists and turns galore Unfortunately for me, this is a novel in which there was simply way too much going on and sometimes, less is That being said, this was a quick easy read which kept my interest from the get go Having read all of Megan Miranda s novels to date, All the Missing Girls is still my favorite I am however a huge
This is another book that had a very interesting premise and started off great A young woman, Sadie has been found dead It s ruled a suicide but there are those in town who blame Sadie s longtime friend, Avery For me, this sounded great But it didn t deliver on the wow factor I was looking for As Avery tries to find out the truth, we learn there is to each character than meets the eye Secrets are the name of the game here Many characters have them but has the most revealing one This could have been a much juicier tale in my opinion It was good but not great Maybe it was me having high hopes for this one but at times, I found my attention dragging Plus, I wish the chapters headers would have been clearer Overall, a good book surrounding the mystery of what happened to Sadie was it really a suicide, was it murder, was it an accident There were quite a few reveals at the end which helped my enjoyment, but will I remember this book in months to come Probab
My first read from Megan Miranda was a success I had so much fun with The Last House Guest .75 Littleport, Maine, like many places in the United States, is the land of the haves and the have nots The wealthy vacation there, and the locals serve them when they do Typically the two groups don t cross paths in a social manner, but Avery and Sadie become friends anyway For over ten years, the two are the best of friends during summer however, when Sadie is found dead, everything changes Sadie s death is ruled a suicide, but Avery is shouldering some blame based on community gossip Someone out there knows something, and Avery intends to find out who they are and what they know The Last House Guest is told in two timelines the night of the incident and the summer afterwards The party go ers are all suspects, and there are secrets and lies galore that unfold bit by bit.The Last House Guest is written in a easy, flowing writing style with a quick pace and a large cast of characters I really felt for Sadie and her family grapp
