We invite you to join us to have a discussion about The Last Thing He Told Me by Laura Dave. We are so excited to share this book with you all, and to hear your thoughts on it. The Last Thing He Told Me is a page-turning mystery about a man, Owen, who disappears. Before he disappeared, he smuggled a note to his beloved wife of one year: Protect her. Despite her confusion and fear, Hannah knows exactly who the note is referring to—Owen’s sixteen-year-old daughter, Bailey. Bailey, who lost her mother tragically when she was young. Bailey, who wants nothing to do with her new stepmother.
As Hannah’s progressively desperate calls to Owen go unanswered, as the FBI arrests Owen’s boss, as a US marshal and federal agents arrive at her Sausalito home undisclosed, Hannah rapidly discovers her husband isn’t who he said he was. And that Bailey just may hold the key to finding out Owen’s genuine identity—and why he really disappeared.
Hannah and Bailey set out to track down the truth. But as they start putting together the pieces of Owen’s past, they soon realize they’re also constructing a new future—one neither of them could have expected.
