The no.1 New York Times bestseller

Now a major TV series Starring Jennifer Garner

It was the last thing he told me: protect her

Before Owen Michaels disappears, he manages to smuggle a note to his new wife, Hannah: protect her. Hannah knows exactly who Owen needs her to protect - his teenage daughter, Bailey, who lost her mother tragically as a child. And who wants absolutely nothing to do with her new stepmother.

As her desperate calls to Owen go unanswered, his boss is arrested for fraud and the police start questioning her, Hannah realises that her husband isn't who he said he was. And that Bailey might hold the key to discovering Owen's true identity, and why he disappeared. Together they set out to discover the truth. But as they start putting together the pieces of Owen's past, they soon realise that their lives will never be the same again...

A beautiful and thrilling mystery, perfect for readers of Liane Moriarty and Celeste Ng.

Really loved this book

Listened to this in a day. The storyline was really well thought out & I didn’t want it to end. Love the Narrator too.

great story

I liked this story, but the narration of it was really off putting. although the narrators voice was clear & well spoken, she sounded almost robotic and the constant "he said, she said, I said" was annoying to the point I almost stopped listening several times.
given the choice again, I would physically read this book instead of listening to it

Almost perfect, almost

Unfortunately, the “I said”/ “She said”/ “He said” after EVERY line of dialogue was annoying as all heck. Once I noticed it about an hour or two in, it bothered me for the rest of the novel. Otherwise it was a wonderful listen with a bit of suspense, drama and great characters

Outstanding

Possibly the best book I’ve read this year. This book warmed my heart but also left it a little broken. Beautifully written story, so much love, courage and sacrifice - just loved it. One of those books you continually keep thinking about. A must read!

Boring

So boring so much dialogue. The whole story could have been written in 3 pages. Don’t bother reading it not worth it.

The Last Thing He Told Me

Reasonably good plot but read in an overly melodramatic American style, which made it a little unrealistic.

A lovely read

A truly in-depth discovery into Hannah’s soul. I loved it, and will confess to a little tear or two at the end.
