book synopsis

Littleport, Maine is like two separate towns: a vacation paradise for wealthy holidaymakers and a simple harbour community for the residents who serve them. Friendships between locals and visitors are unheard of - but that's just what happened with Avery Greer and Sadie Loman.


Each summer for a decade the girls are inseparable - until Sadie is

I really enjoyed Miranda’s Perfect Stranger. It definitely had what it takes to stand out in the homogenous sea of female authored female driven domestic thrillers that are so ubiquitous these days. I’m obviously not the only one who thinks so, because I’m yet to read her other thriller, it’s always out at the library. So naturally when her latest showed up on Netgalley, I requested it immediately without even reading the description. I’m not regretting the choice, though I did like this one les ...more

Avery Greer and Sadie Loman’s friendship began when they were 18-years old. The Lomans are a wealthy family who have a house in Littleport, Maine and only visit for the summers. Avery, a local, was working one of the Loman parties when she and Sadie meet. Their friendship takes off from there—the two girls inseparable. Avery became intertwined with the Loman family. They took her in as an extension of their family and later on, Avery started working for their business as a property manager.

*I was sent an e-arc from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review*

I read All the Missing Girls last year and enjoyed the writing style in that everything was told backward. In this new thriller by Megan Miranda we are following local girl Avery in the aftermath of the death of her best friend in the seaside town she lives and works in.

While this story isn't told with the same format, we do have a story told out of sync that jumps all over. It was easy to follow though and that says a lot abou

I was honored to receive a digital copy from @netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I haven’t read any Megan Miranda novels, although I know her book All the Missing Girls was a big hit a few years ago. I enjoy female-driven suspense and was excited to check this one out!

The story follows Avery, a twenty-something young woman living in a vacation town in coastal Maine. Last summer, her best friend Sadie was found dead near the rocky shore, and it was ruled a suicide. But now Avery is disc

Avery Greer was a year round resident of the coastal Maine town of Littleport. Every summer affluent vacationers would descend on the little town. The richest of those summer people were the Lomans who owned a large house on a cliff overlooking the water. They also owned many of the vacation homes that were rented out by the week or the month to visitors.

Avery had lost her parents as a teenager in a car accident and then later lost her grandmother as well. Her anger caused her to engage in reckl

I received an advance galley of this book from NetGalley.
This is a story about the mysterious death of a young woman from a highly well-to-do family in a summer resort town. Was it a suicide? If not, who did it? And why?
The best part of the book is how well the author created the report down environment, the folks who live there year round versus those that come Memorial Day and leave on Labor Day.
There are a lot of characters in this book. Thus, many possibilities for who did it if it was not

This was my third book by this author and I enjoyed it a lot. The setting was well developed and created an effective atmospheric feel. The plot was well-paced and I couldn’t wait to find out the answers at the end. I loved how thoughtfully written Avery was; she was flawed but not overly so and had a unique life experience. This book also has more of a “new adult fiction” feel. The one character I thought could have been better developed was Parker. Overall, this was an engaging, well-written s ...more

A death that feels suspicious in a town known for vacationers as well as its small town community.
However, this death is unlike any other as Sadie has connections to the community as her brother Parker now questions her death.
A local girl and a summer girl create an unlikely friendship and now the other half -Avery- is now seeking answers.
Someone must know more than they are saying and Avery is determined to not leave her friend behind.
There's much more to this than meets the eye as death is nea

I've now read three books by Megan Miranda (All the Missing Girls and Fracture being the first two) and she has proven herself to always be a safe bet when I am in the mood for an engaging and twisty thriller. THE LAST HOUSE GUEST follows Avery Greer, a young woman who has lost her family and is making a name for herself working on rental properties at a seaside community in Maine. Avery relies on the wealthy Loman family for her housing and salary, but finds herself even more interconnected wit ...more

More like 2.5. I'd like to thank Edelweiss and the publisher for an advance copy in exchange for an honest review. I'll admit, I have never gotten around to reading the author's previous books although the covers have always caught my eye so when I saw this on here I decided to take the plunge and request it. I wasn't fully impressed with it. The writing was disjointed and there was too much back and forth with the chapters. Not that I found it hard to read, I just found that it made it hard for ...more

OMG THIS BOOK WAS SO GOOD!

5/5 stars for The Last House Guest by Megan Miranda

This story has everything - great characters, a setting that makes you feel as if you are on vacation, and twists and turns that kept me guessing until the last page. It's one of those rare books that leaves you shocked at the end and saying "wow!". I finished it last night and am just getting to writing my review because I am so sad that it is over!

Many thanks to the publisher and netgalley, who provided me a free copy

A real page turner. I enjoyed the u folding if the story in both past and present. Kept me on my toes and unlike many mysteries, I wasn't sure I'd figured it out until pretty late in story. Good read.

Full disclosure- I received a copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
