Before Owen Michaels disappears, he smuggles a note to his beloved wife of one year: Protect her. Despite her confusion and fear, Hannah Hall knows exactly to whom the note refers—Owen’s sixteen-year-old daughter, Bailey. Bailey, who lost her mother tragically as a child. Bailey, who wants absolutely nothing to do with her new stepmother.

As Hannah’s increasingly desperate calls to Owen go unanswered, as the FBI arrests Owen’s boss, as a US marshal and federal agents arrive at her Sausalito home unannounced, Hannah quickly realizes her husband isn’t who he said he was. And that Bailey just may hold the key to figuring out Owen’s true identity—and why he really disappeared.

Hannah and Bailey set out to discover the truth. But as they start putting together the pieces of Owen’s past, they soon realize they’re also building a new future—one neither of them could have anticipated.

With its breakneck pacing, dizzying plot twists, and evocative family drama, The Last Thing He Told Me is a riveting mystery, certain to shock you with its final, heartbreaking turn.


I found this book on Scribd. 

I really liked this book.  Its tragic and I wonder if all the characters made the right decisions but I appreciated the honesty of it even if I had wanted it tied up in a neat little happily every after bow.  Stories like this don't end that way.  

This is a fast paced drama which starts when Hannah's husband disappears leaving her with his teenage daughter who hates her.  Together they need to trust each other enough to figure out what is happening.  Is Owen the criminal the press and others want to make him out to be? Is he worse? As they put the pieces of Owen's past together to discover why he disappeared and what should happen next a strange thing starts to happen.  They start to trust each other a little more, realize that they are fighting on the same side and that despite everything they have each other.  

This book is a mystery within a mystery as Hannah and Bailey try to work out what happened to Owen and where he may be and how they can reunite.  Its a tragic story with lots unfolding quickly but perfectly woven together.  Would I have made the same choice? I don't know, but Hannah puts Bailey first in the end and I think Bailey knows that and that is part of why their relationship became so much stronger in the end.
