Editor's Note

Book club pick…

Reese Witherspoon ended summer with what she dubs “the ultimate thriller” as her Reese’s Book Club x Hello Sunshine pick for August 2019. “Picture this: It’s the last night of summer in Littleport, Maine and Avery Greer discovers her best friend is missing. Was she murdered? Was it a suicide? This story will have you guessing until the very end,” Witherspoon wrote in the announcement post.

Description

From the acclaimed New York Times best-selling author of All the Missing Girls, a suspenseful new novel about an idyllic town in Maine dealing with the suspicious death of one of their own — and her best “summer” friend, who is trying to uncover the truth...before fingers point her way.

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 Avery Greer and Littleport resident Sadie Loman. 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 best-selling author of All the Missing Girls and The Perfect Stranger, Megan Miranda’s The Last House Guest is a smart, twisty listen with a strong female protagonist determined to make her own way in the world.

    Not as shocking as I would have wanted it to be. But still worth the read. Miranda does well when it comes to writing characters and scenery that really immerses the reader.

    Es una buena historia, que te lleva a querer resolver el misterio. Me mareo un poco en un momento con la linea temporal, pero no es tan difícil de seguir. En un momento la historia se hizo un poco lenta, y eso hace que mi calificación baje un poco. Me recordó un poco a la serie "Revenge" por el lugar y algunos de los personajes.

    A little slow at first and then it really picks up! Great book to listen to while driving or cleaning around the house.

    I liked this book - it was about young college kids - but it was still a good listen.

    I was hooked! Interesting perspective of best friend trying to figure out what happened. There was enough to keep you guessing until the end.
