From the Editor

Black Hall, Connecticut, is known as a safe place. A small seaside town free of violent crime. So when gallery owner Beth Lathrop is brutally murdered, Beth’s family and friends are left reeling. None more so than Beth’s sister, Kate. With the help of Detective Conor Reid, Kate will dig deep into Beth’s final weeks and days, their attention rarely deviating from Beth’s cheating and opportunistic spouse.

Because it’s always the husband. As we’ve learned from countless crime shows—and actual CDC data—when a woman is murdered, her partner is the likely culprit. So what do we make of a husband with an airtight alibi? Is there such a thing?

That is the question that led me to read page after page after page late into the night. I was completely engrossed in Luanne Rice’s twisted and heartrending story of a horrific murder and its aftermath...and the brutal secrets buried in a tranquil seaside town.

After five years writing young adult fiction, beloved New York Times bestselling author Luanne Rice has returned to her roots in compelling family drama for adults! And it is her best—and most thrilling—ever. Luanne has brilliantly combined elements of domestic and psychological suspense with police procedural, resulting in a book I read in one sitting.

Editorial Reviews

Review

“In a family drama that is suspenseful as it is empathetic, Rice again displays her ability to portray female friendship and the pain of loss.” Booklist (starred review)

“Rice keeps the reader guessing as she gradually doles out long-hidden family secrets. Fans of intense family dramas will be rewarded.” Publishers Weekly

“Strong love overcomes pain in this latest from Rice (Pretend She’s Here), which combines suspense with stories of survivors, sisterhood, best friends, and small communities shaken by violence or death.” Library Journal

“A riveting story of a seaside community shaken by a violent crime and a tragic loss.” Brooklyn Digest

“From the exquisite opening, through twists and torment, this domestic thriller weaves an irresistible story of family and friends, trust and betrayal, love and murder.” Suspense Magazine

“Luanne Rice’s opening pages of Last Day illustrate elegant writing at its finest. Twist after twist is guaranteed to keep readers guessing all the way to the surprises in the final pages…a sheer pleasure to read. Rice, the author of more than 30 books, is a master at writing descriptions and portraying story settings, a skill other writers admire and strive to acquire.” —New York Journal of Books

“The themes of love, loss, sisterly devotion, betrayals, and family ties are skillfully interwoven. [Rice] provides just enough intriguing detail to make the reader want to learn more…She once again doesn’t disappoint in this novel.” LymeLine.com

Last Day by Luanne Rice is a gripping psychological suspense story. It starts out with an intensity from page one that never lets up.” Crimespree Magazine

“If you're a fan of Shari Lapena or Ruth Ware, order this book and get ready to be sucked in. It’s one of the best books of the year so far.” GQ Magazine

“Lovely, lyrical—and lethal. Luanne Rice turns her talents in a new direction and succeeds completely.” —Lee Child, #1 New York Times bestselling author

“Luanne Rice is the master of small towns with big secrets. With a deft touch, she draws us into a picture-postcard New England village, behind the closed doors of a well-loved home with its beautiful gardens and perfect family, only to expose the truths within. Surprising, powerful, a total page-turner.” —Lisa Scottoline, New York Times bestselling author of Someone Knows

“In Last Day, Luanne Rice shows once again her unique gift for portraying the emotional landscape of a family. By adding a riveting thread of suspense, she proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that love and murder make brilliant bedfellows.” —Tess Gerritsen, New York Times bestselling author of The Shape of Night

Last Day, by Luanne Rice, shines with its brilliant plot about four women friends, their families and loves, and, shockingly, a murder. Rice’s writing is flawless and fast, her characters are like the women I have coffee with, and the desire, violence, and betrayals shock me and remind me of Liane Moriarty’s Big Little Lies.” —Nancy Thayer, New York Times bestselling author of Surfside Sisters

“A dark family history. A deeply flawed marriage. The complicated tangle of the ties that bind. Luanne Rice writes with authenticity and empathy, unflinchingly exploring her characters and diving into the shadowy spaces where they hide their secrets. Like all great stories, Last Day is a compulsive, twisting mystery dwelling inside a searing portrait of what drives us, as riveting as it is human and true.” —Lisa Unger, New York Times bestselling author of The Stranger Inside

“A brutal murder, a failed marriage, secret lovers, and enough suspects to fill a room. The truth lies somewhere between betrayal and love. A compelling mystery you won’t put down or solve until the final pages.” —Robert Dugoni, New York Times and Amazon Charts bestselling author of the Tracy Crosswhite series

“I’ve long loved Luanne Rice for her trademark elegant style and her deep understanding of familial relationships, and she brings these superpowers with her as she delves into suspense. Last Day is a true page-turner, peopled by characters I care deeply about, with an ending I never saw coming.” —Joshilyn Jackson, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Never Have I Ever
