The Last Thing He Told Me: A Novel. Laura Dave, author; Rebecca Lowman, narrator
This book is a page turner. Hannah and Owen were recently married. He is a widower with a teen-aged daughter, Bailey, who has recently turned 16. She is a bit of a rebel with purple streaked hair. She is not enamored with her stepmother, but Hannah is determined to win her over. Hannah is a wood turner. She designs furniture. Owen works for a company that is designing software meant to protect one’s privacy. Recently the company went public. Someone informed the authorities that the IPO was not conducted properly. The company was raided and the CEO was arrested.
On the day of the raid, Hannah receives a cryptic notes from Owen. He asks Hannah to protect Bailey. Bailey discovers a note from her father in a duffle bag in her locker. The bag is filled with rolls of money. Why did her father leave her a bag of money? When Owen does not come home that night or the next, Hannah and Bailey are besides themselves. Owen has disappeared without any explanation. What has he done? Why hasn’t he come home? Did he know about the problems at The Shop? Was he guilty? Where could he be?
Together, Hannah and Bailey try to find Owen. They think of possible clues to his whereabouts which lead them to Austin, Texas. Bailey had been there with him, as a child, and as her memories come back, Owen’s secret life is revealed. Does Hannah really know him? Does Bailey? Did he lie about his past? Why has he kept so much from Hannah? Is he safe? The larger question is really not where he is, but who he is. What is Owen’s real identity?
The authorities suspect Hannah of knowing about what Owen has done, since they believe that the wife always knows, and yet, she discovers that she is not only ignorant of his possible crimes, she is also completely unaware of his past life. It all seems to have been made up out of whole cloth. Somehow, he has erased it, and as she and Bailey uncover it, they find themselves in great danger. There are people after Owen, people who are not connected with the crimes Owen is suspected of committing at The Shop. They might even be after Bailey. These people are powerful, and Bailey and Hannah need protection. Can Hannah protect Bailey from whatever Owen is afraid of, from those who are after him? The twists and turns lead the reader in several different directions. In the end, did Hannah make the correct choice to protect Bailey? Only time would tell. Would they ever see Owen again? They thought it was highly unlikely. ( )

3+ I was afraid to start my second book by this author in less than a week. Luckily, this one had a more likeable main character and a much better mystery. Read my full review here. ( )

Excellent story. Some of the relationship issues may be unrealistic ( )

The Last Thing He Told Me by Laura Dave

Hannah receives a note from her Husband (Owen) stating "Protect her". She knows it is in regards to her stepdaughter Bailey. Although they do not have the best relationship, the two set out to find Owen. The closer they get to reality, the closer they become (to each other). Finding the truth will be shocking and life changing.

The story moves at a fast pace with attention to detail and engaging dialog. The characters are well developed and likable. The perfect mix (of) mystery, intrigue, suspense, secrets revealed and unconditional love. I was hooked from the first page until the end. I highly recommend The Last Thing He Told Me to all. ( )

I see very mixed opinions about this book, I really liked it! It was a slower mystery, suspense kind of story than I expected, and more thought provoking, than an edge of your seat kind of read. I found it to be a very engaging kind of story. ( )
