Mystery; strength of love, and commitment.
Have you ever savored an exceptional chocolate? In that moment it is your total experience, you know you'll pop a Hershey's kiss tomorrow, but this has set the standard for chocolate. The Last Thing He Told Me sets the standard for what mysteries should be, you'll go back to reading other mysteries but you will remember this one.
Hannah's husband of one year leaves her a note saying, "protect her," then vanishes. "Her" is Bailey, a 16 year old step daughter. The plot of course thickens. Hannah and Bailey set out to discover what is behind the disappearance, unweaving a mystery neither knew. The main characters are well developed, those on the edges are a little vague and unsettling, the right amount to create a suspenseful plot. The plot evolves one step in front of unknown danger as Hannah determines who she can trust.
Like that exceptional chocolate, you'll want to devour this in one sitting so don't start it unless you have the time to set sleep, work, and family aside.
