"Once again, Megan Miranda has crafted the perfect summer thriller." ??Riley Sager, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Time I Lied

The summer after a wealthy young summer guest dies under suspicious circumstances, her best friend lives under a cloud of grief and suspicion in this "clever, stylish mystery that will seize readers like a riptide" (Publishers Weekly, starred review) featuring "dizzying plot twists and multiple surprise endings" (The New York Times Book Review).
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 Sadie Loman and Littleport resident Avery Greer. 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 bestselling author of All the Missing Girls and The Perfect Stranger, Megan Miranda's The Last House Guest is a smart, twisty read with a strong female protagonist determined to make her own way in the world.

My review:

The book starts off setting the tone for the story at 'The Plus-One Party' back in the summer of 2017. This first chapter captivated me and drew me into the plot of what happened to Sadie and how those at this party play into it all. Miranda jumps back and forth from the summer of 2017 and the summer of 2018, which was confusing at first, but I was able to grasp what the intent was after the second switch back to summer 2017.

As promising as the opening few chapters were, and how they drew me into the story and wanting answers, the middle of the book seemed to fall a bit flat. The information provided in the large portion of the book definitely played into giving the reader the knowledge they needed for the ending, but the delivery didn't quite hit like the beginning of the book did. I found myself caring more for Sadie (the deceased friend) than I did for the main character (Avery). Avery began to annoy me with what came across as a bit whiney and overly naïve character traits.

The concepts within the book were fantastic. I loved the idea behind connecting the trauma of Avery's past pre-Sadie to Sadie's death. Miranda did a great job of slowly drawing the connecting lines for the reader in how they all came together. I think my biggest critique is I could not connect to the main character, and in turn, lost some interest in her storytelling through most of the novel.

Miranda provided a wonderful twist at the end of the book. While reading, I tried to stay one step ahead in figuring out who killed Sadie. Miranda provided just enough information throughout that led the reader down an intended path, only for the reader to realize they were wrong. This happened on two occasions that stood out to me. Both times, the conclusion I came to was incorrect, and I was shocked by who the real killer turned out to be.

Overall, The Last House Guest had a lot of promise and provided some decent twists and turns at time. While not the most engaging page turner, I was hooked on the mystery enough to continue through, even when I was detached from Avery. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for an easy thriller that does not take much concentration to get through. ( )

¿Realmente conocemos a las personas con las que compartimos la intimidad de nuestras vidas? Nada es lo que parece? Todas las familias esconden secretos. Alguien mató a Sadie porque conocía una incómoda verdad. Solo hay que hacerse las preguntas adecuadas para descubrirlo. Avery Greer y Sadie Loman pertenecen a dos mundos muy opuestos, pero comparten un mismo lugar de vacaciones: Littleport, en Maine. Sadie aparece muerta durante la celebración de la fiesta de final de verano. La policía cree que se trata de un suicidio... pero empieza a hacer indagaciones, y los principales sospechosos son las personas más cercanas a la joven: su hermano, Parker, y su mejor amiga, Avery, con la que comparte todos los veranos desde hace años. Ella está decidida a llegar hasta el final, para limpiar su propio nombre y a conseguir que el verdadero asesino de Sadie pague por ello. Avery no pertenece al lujoso mundo de Sadie, y sabe muy bien cuáles son las diferencias que las separan, como la que existe entre el dinero que se gana, o el que se hereda. En su mente se encuentran todos los elementos que, bien encajados, pueden revelar lo que realmente ocurrió en aquella fiesta del final de verano... ( )

Things I need to remember.
* If the book is in any way part of a BOGO skip it, it will be boring, bad, a waste of time.
* If it has a deal for Reese, Oprah, or any other book club. The book will suck.
* an endorsement by Stephen King it will absolutely suck.
* uses words like fast paced, gripping, thrill fest- it will be the exact opposite.
* books by women about women who seem unhinged, and all of their books are described this way.
This book was beyond boring.
First 100 pages nothing happens dialogue is nearly non existent, boring characters.
I am tired of these crappy books.
