The Last House Guest Bets On...

The Last House Guest

June 2019

THE LAST HOUSE GUEST reminded me once again how strong of a writer Megan Miranda is. The plot, you ask? Avery Greer is the townie in a Maine beach town who befriends Sadie Loman, one of the wealthy girls who summers on the island. On the night of an end-of-the-season party, Sadie is found dead on the beach, and all signs point to suicide. But that does not make sense to Avery, who commits herself to figuring out what went awry.

Megan is brilliant at plotting and turning the story in many different ways. There is an “aha” of a twist at the end that I dare you to see coming. The book is set in Littteport, Maine, and the beach scenes will make you crave sand between your toes --- and some lobster. Pass the melted butter, and don’t spill any on the pages as you zip through this fast-paced thriller.
