A “gripping” (Entertainment Weekly) 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 16-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.

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.
Hannah is in love. With Owen. She picked up her life and moved across the country from Manhattan to Sausalito to be with him, where he is settled in with his now teenage daughter, Bailey, who is not looking to replace her deceased mother. Cue the snarky comments and eye rolls that only a 16-year-old can deliver with aplomb to the awaiting stepmother. But Hannah is not rattled. She is patient, having lost her own mother, albeit in a different way.
Dependable Owen doesn’t come home from his job as an engineer at a software startup. Instead, he sends a young girl to his house to hand deliver a cryptic two-word message to his wife. Baffled, frightened and unsure of what to do, Hannah is determined to find out where her husband is, after word is out that the company is being charged with securities fraud, which leads her to take matters into her own hands on the streets of Austin.
I especially liked this thriller for its well-paced plot, well-developed not too far-fetched with just the right amount of intrigue characters, each of whom is faced with a decision about which treacherous path to take.
THE LAST THING HE TOLD ME is an engrossing tale of suspense and family drama with female characters who are doing it for themselves.
alter her entire life to this marriage for this man. I understood the basics of Hannah 's need for family but the author was vague when she needed put in more emotional depth between her and Owen .Less martyr Hannah and more pissed ,sad even broken Hannah would have been better and more relatable. The sainted understanding Hannah wasn't real enough for me .The author went to great length of wood species but didn't bother to fill in the gaps of what I would have wanted to know.The ending was lack luster when I wanted more , much more for Hannah, Bailey and yes Ethan .The ending just left me with "well that's it then " ugh !I just wanted to read about Hannah not just settling for crumbs but getting some cake .So I'll give this read a 3.5 stars only unfortunately.If this read was more detailed, more emotionally fueled , less Martyr Hannah, more in depth(even POV ) Ethen and Owen I could have excepted the ending .Not a bad read but with some more plausible scenarios, with more of what I wanted answered than what I got it would and easily could have been a amazing read. Dear writers less is never more in a story ,vague endings stink so please keep that it mind please.

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’.
