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.

I love Megan Miranda and was excited to read this, but I found it off putting and difficult to follow at times. I found myself reading passages over more than once, trying to grasp if there were subtle nuances I was missing or if it was just poorly written in spots. I figured out both reveals long before they actually happened, and I just wasn‘t wowed by this story. Furthermore, I didn‘t much care for the heroine. #liketheauthorbutnotthisbook

Megabooks I did the audiobook and it was my second favorite to All the Missing Girls. I really like Megan in general too! 1mo
Bookgirl @Megabooks I‘m glad you liked it! Only has a 72% on here and there are a lot of so so reviews saying what I felt, so that made me feel a bit better. Always a bummer when you can‘t get into a book by an author you look forward to 1mo

I really wanted to love this book but found it jumped around too much and was a little predictable. It‘s been awhile since I‘ve read a good mystery so I did enjoy the change of book type but overall didn‘t love it.

This movie was boring until the last 15 minutes. How many times do you need to be freaked out until you take the hint and LEAVE? Very creepy at certain points. #TeamSlaughter #scarathlon #theopenhouse #suspense #murder

This was a magnificent suspense mystery novel. The author keeps the killer at the edge of the story so that you think they aren't a major character. The twists and turns in this novel will give you whip lash they come so fast.

I loved that there were really two mysteries that needed to be solved. The first mystery seems almost unimportant untill the end. What an amazing author Meghan Miranda is. .#TeamSlaughter @Clwojick

I am really loving the way this author plays with time they go back and forth between the time of the major event and the present adding in memories to really play with the time of the book. It's excellent!

This one fell a bit flat for me. I didn‘t care about the characters, and I felt like it was all over the place. However, I did keep reading because I wanted to know who did it and what really happened.

+2 for a mystery

Book 14/15 #bfcr3 #bookfitnesschallenge : The Last House Guest - I actually passed this one up originally because I had too many (as usual), but I got it back after Reese named it as her August pick, and I‘m glad I did! It was a great thriller, with a hell of a twist at the end!

I could not get into this audiobook...and I‘m having trouble even figuring out why 😳. While listening to it my attention kept drifting off, which rarely happens, and I kept getting the characters mixed up, making it nearly impossible to keep up with the twists and turns of the mystery. When it was all over I did think it was a nice twist to what happened, but other than that I was just “meh”. Just not for me! 🌟🌟🌟

Megan Miranda‘s style of thriller suits me perfectly. Avery‘s best friend Sadie dies tragically with lots of questions around her death. The story flips between summers recapping the night of her death and those who were there and possibly responsible for her death. The Loman Family‘s presence in Maine is strong and as a Loman, Sadie‘s death rocks the town of Littleport.

Buechersuechtling What a pity. When this happens to me it‘s usually the other way 'round (better in audio than in print). I imagine the way you experienced it to be even more cruddy. (Don‘t know, why. Just a feeling.) 4mo

#ReeseWitherspoon Book Club August 2019 pick

Pretty good little thriller about a murder that takes place in an upscale vacation spot. I did like it but not as much as the other Miranda books that I‘ve read.

Though I dragged this book all the way to #Maine, I wish that I had read it while we were there!! The town we stayed in definitely shared some similarities to Littleport, the scene of this fast-paced thriller. The plot holds a few more expected turns - along with some real surprises! The odd romantic angle did not work for me, but overall I had a fun time reading this!

Let me start off my saying I have read every Megan Miranda book and have never been a fan. I swore I would not read this one, but low and behold Reese Witherspoon selects this as her book club book. I do love her selections, so I thought maybe this book will be different and decided I will read it.

I like Megan Miranda novels. They are engaging, quick reads, with an underlying darkness. Had it not been for work, i would have finished this in one day. I loved All the Missing Girls, so I was prepared for this book to be equally engaging, and I was not disappointed. If you like deeply flawed, almost-unlikable-but-not-quite heroines, then you'll love this book! Also, it's the Reese Witherspoon book club August pick. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

When the author of The Whisper Network was reading out clues about Reese‘s next pick, I thought, “Huh. That sounds like the book I just started.” Lo and behold, it is. 🤣🤣

I like Rebekah Ross‘s voice with Megan Miranda‘s books. This is the third I‘ve bought from #audible. That said, not everyone is a Ross fan, so listen to the sample. #audiobook

So far, the book is a good. An interesting mystery, but not as good as All the Missing Girls.

SarahHarts_books I want to read this one but haven't yet. I have read most of her others and NONE so far are as good as All the Missing Girls. That is one of my favorite books EVER!!😍😍 4mo

4.5⭐️ for this smart, twisty read w/a strong female protagonist determined to uncover the truth about her friend‘s death while discovering other cover-up‘s. With the BIG mystery behind Sadie‘s death, unpredictable characters + lies at every turn, I enjoyed it‘s slow suspense building up to a shocking end, who knew!
