The Last Thing He Told Me is Laura Dave’s latest thriller, one that combines family drama with a mystery of epic proportions. This was one of my BOTM picks for May, and I am so excited to have enjoyed it as much as I did!

On the day that her husband, Owen Michaels, went missing, Hannah Hall got a note. The note simply stated: protect her. There was no doubt in Hannah’s mind about what the note could have meant, though there’s no way she could have anticipated the rabbit hole it was about to send her down.

I feel like it’s been a hot minute since a thriller actually kept me on the edge of my seat, but that is what happened with The Last Thing He Told Me. I was so curious to know the full story of Michael Owns and what it was that made him run.

Needless to say, I found myself pretty invested in the story, as well as the characters involved. It’s hard not to feel for Hannah and Bailey, who were left in the dust and left to try and put the puzzle pieces together based on very little information.

It’s everything that I’ve been looking for in a thriller, come to think of it. No wonder I enjoyed it so much! This was a perfect standalone novel, and now I’m going to be keeping an eye out for whatever Laura Dave writes next.
