THE LAST HOUSE GUEST – Megan Miranda
I’m a huge fan of Miranda’s and you can see my other reviews for her books!
My Thoughts: 4/5 stars!
Now I’ve been a big fan of Megan Miranda ever since I picked up THE PERFECT STRANGER, and she quickly became an auto-buy author for me. THE LAST HOUSE GUEST has the signature colorful and eye-catching cover – which I love – and she weaves another suspenseful thriller for us.
We brought to a small harbor community on the coast of Maine. Littleport is a popular destination for vacationing families and the residents remain busiest from Memorial Day to Labor Day. An unlikely friendship forms after years of summers together – Avery Greer and Sadie Loman were inseparable every summer for a decade. That is until tragedy strikes, Sadie is found dead from an apparent suicide. Avery knows that people in the community are blaming her, so she is determined to clear her name and find out what truly happened to her friend.
I know this one seems to be a hit or miss for most readers, but I really enjoyed it. I love Miranda’s writing style and the way she brings everything together. I did not see that ending coming! This is definitely one to pick up if you’re looking for a lighter suspense/mystery novel this summer. I’ll continue to pick up Miranda’s books because there’s always something unique to them which helps stand out a little against all of the books flooding the thriller genre lately. Yes, we all expect there to be plot similarities but Miranda always finds an element to make them stand out.
