The Last Thing He Told Me

The Last Thing He Told Me



Before Owen Michaels disappears, he manages to smuggle a note to his new wife, Hannah: protect her. Hannah knows exactly who Owen needs her to protect - his sixteen-year-old daughter, Bailey, who lost her mother tragically as a child. And who wants absolutely nothing to do with her new stepmother.

As her increasingly desperate calls to Owen go unanswered, his boss is arrested for fraud and the police start questioning her, Hannah realises that her husband isn't who he said he was. And that Bailey might hold the key to discovering Owen's true identity, and why he disappeared. Together they set out to discover the truth. But as they start putting together the pieces of Owen's past, they soon realise that their lives will never be the same again..

Our Review

The Last Thing he Told Me is fast-paced and intense and it is easy to see why it has been optioned for a TV series. 

How far would you go for a stepdaughter who has never fully embraced you? 

When Hannah husband leaves her with his beloved daughter and a note simply saying: Protect her Hannah knows there must be more going on. 

After his boss is arrested for fraud it looks like he's simply guilty of the same crime but Hannah knows her husband and she knows he wouldn't defraud people. 

Determined to find out why he left she and Bailey delve into his past and she is forced to question everything she knows. 

Who can she trust? Can she trust him? 

I loved the way the author built the relationship between the protagonist and Bailey and also between her and her grandfather, 

Laura Dave has a fresh style of writing and The Last Thing He Me is incredibly suspensful, I couldn't stop reading until I knew how it ended. As for the ending I liked the way it was tied up in a way you wouldn't necesarily expect. 

The Last Thing He Told Me was a whilrlwind read and one of many superb books I have read so far this year.
