Summary, etc.: A gripping mystery about a woman who thinks she's found the love of her life until he disappears. 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.
Reviews

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2021 June #1
    *Starred Review* With several women's fiction novels under her belt, Dave (Hello, Sunshine, 2017) is writing a thriller this time . . . and it pays off. This domestic suspense follows Hannah and her stepdaughter Bailey as they try to unravel the disappearance of husband/father Owen Michaels. Owen left vague instructions when he disappeared to "protect her" (meaning his 16-year-old, Bailey). What follows is a carefully paced game of figuring out if Owen is who he claims to be. If he isn't hiding anything . . . where did he go? There are twists and unexpected turns, but they are slowly spoon-fed to the reader. Narrator Lowman has a calm, assuring voice, and good pacing that are a seamless match to the slowly unwinding plot. Lowman's narration puts the reader at ease and assures us that all will work out in due time. This novel is more about the bonding of a mother and child than anything else. It will appeal to readers who gravitate toward stories about dysfunctional families—think Ann Patchett and Lisa Jewell. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
