Publisher's Summary

From the acclaimed New York Times best-selling author of All the Missing Girls, a suspenseful new novel about an idyllic town in Maine dealing with the suspicious death of one of their own - and her best “summer” friend, who is trying to uncover the truth...before fingers point her way.

Littleport, Maine, has always felt like two separate towns: an ideal vacation enclave for the wealthy, whose summer homes line the coastline; and a simple harbor community for the year-round residents whose livelihoods rely on service to the visitors. 

Typically, fierce friendships never develop between a local and a summer girl - but that’s just what happens with visitor Avery Greer and Littleport resident Sadie Loman. Each summer for almost a decade, the girls are inseparable - until Sadie is found dead. While the police rule the death a suicide, Avery can’t help but feel there are those in the community, including a local detective and Sadie’s brother, Parker, who blame her. Someone knows more than they’re saying, and Avery is intent on clearing her name before the facts get twisted against her. 

Another thrilling novel from the best-selling author of All the Missing Girls and The Perfect Stranger, Megan Miranda’s The Last House Guest is a smart, twisty listen with a strong female protagonist determined to make her own way in the world.

Boring and confusing

Yikes I’m not sure what the other reviewers saw in this book. The narrator had such a dull monotone voice that I ended up spacing out and had to go back and listen to it all over again just to keep up with the story. The writer switched back and forth between the past and present with alacrity. After a couple hours, I gave up and skipped to the ending chapters. It turned out I didn’t really need to listen to the whole book to understand the ending.This book could’ve done with a good editing.

Boring. Disappointing

I enjoyed her first book. This one just droned on and on. I got to the fifth chapter and skipped to the last two chapters.

Great start, disappointed ending

The start was great. The characters were likeable. Avery, Sadie, Parker and Connor with their faults, were interesting. The guilty person was a shock, but the story dragged on. Avery confronted everyone, I couldn't understand why she didn't explain everything. That her father was wrong, Sadie would risk everything.

Between the ending and the story dragged on to long, the book was okay.

So good!

I had a long drive from Minneapolis to Rapid City. There was about two hours left . So I hurried to get to the gym to finish it!

I loved the plot and the ability to keep my attention throughout the entire book!
