The instant #1 New York Times bestselling mystery and Reese Witherspoon Book Club pick that's captivated more than a million readers about a woman searching for the truth about her husband's disappearance...at any cost.
"A fast-moving, heartfelt thriller about the sacrifices we make for the people we love most." --Real Simple
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 enjoyed the plot because it moved along sensibly and believably. I do not enjoy mysteries that use concocted drama to create a false tension. The only time I thought this may be happening, it turned out to be a logical progression in the plot.
I did find the ending satisfying and believable. Good book.
The author some how didn't develop a single likeable character in the whole book (I was actively rooting against the main character for a majority of the book). The plot is wildly unbelievable and plain stupid. Nothing is developed in enough detail to make much sense and the whole plot feels rushed. The writing style is immature and makes for a very boring read as the author 'tells' instead of 'showing'. Some of the vocabulary choices in the book are unnecessary to the point of not making sense in their own context.
I really struggled to finish this book (in the midst of isolation with nothing else to do). Save your money and read something else.
THE MAIN CHARACTER IS SO ASTUTE. HER EMPATHY IS SO BELIEVABLY GROUNDED IN HER OWN EXPERIENCE AND HER INTELLIGENCE. SHE OUTWITS THE MAIN PLAYERS IN THE DRAMA OF THE STORY BASED ON HER INNATE GOODNESS AND HER BELIEF IN HER UNDERSTANDING OF THE MAN SHE LOVES.

The only pleasure I got out of this book is the cathartic experience I'm having writing this review and arriving at the sound decision of never buying a Reese Witherspoon book club pick again. And if she produces or stars in the film or series version, I'll never forgive her or watch Walk the Line again for like the 12th time.
1. The lack of suspense- even though the story has promise, it’s not really exciting. There’s no antagonist chasing Hannah (main character) trying to cover the truth or any meaningful confrontation
2. It didn’t seem believable- it just so happens that the main character (a wood turner) is also a mock detective with killer instincts, ALL of which work out in this book. Not one wrong turn. Recalling and deciphering a memory from months and sometimes years ago. It all happened far too easily to seem plausible, and there was no real chase. Hannah discovers everything within two days (the majority of the book taking place in 3-4 days)😕
3. The flat ‘climax’ in which we find out what happened to Hannah’s husband and his ‘sordid’ history- This was so uncreative and not really all that interesting. When I read this ‘plot twist’ I thought ‘is that it? That’s all??’
It is an easy read and it was intriguing but I kind of finished it going ‘meh’. I would never recommend this to a friend saying ‘oh my gosh this book is so amazing, you should definitely read it’.
