Book Summary:

 New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Courtney Evan Tate's The Last to See Her (MIRA; 12/29) is a twisty, fast-paced domestic suspense about sisters, secrets and betrayal--for fans of B.A. Paris and Riley Sager.

Genevieve, a writer, is about to finalize her divorce from her cheating husband Todd. So when her sister Meg, an ambitious physician, has a convention to attend in New York City, she invites Gen along to celebrate her return to single life. It will be a perfect sisters' getaway in the big city! But things go awry when, on their first evening at the hotel, Gen decides to take a late night walk and disappears without a trace. Eventually she is officially declared a missing person.

Suspicion soon falls on her sister Meg, who was the last person to see her.

Through twists and turns, it is revealed that Meg has been sleeping with her brother-in-law Todd... And then there is a question of a newly purchased insurance policy that just has just gone into effect before Gen’s disappearance. Both Todd and Meg deny any knowledge of it.

But has an actual crime been committed? Can it be proven? And if so, who is really the guilty one?

My Review

Genevieve “Gen” McCready Tibault is going through the worst time in her life.  She is getting a divorce from her husband, Thad, who turned out to be nothing but a cheater.  As a writer, Gen can work anywhere and she decides to move back to her hometown in Wisconsin.  First, she makes plans to meet her sister, Meg, in New York City.  Meg is attending a convention and wants to spend some time with her sister to celebrate Gen’s divorce. 

The sisters get drunk on their first night.  Gen throws her wedding ring off the balcony and takes off for an evening walk on her own.  She needs to be alone for a little while.  Meg doesn’t like her sister going off on her own, but she can’t stop her.  It’s the last time she sees her sister. 

Meg calls the cops and the investigation begins.  Meg is shocked at the secrets that are uncovered. 

This is one of those books that keep you at the edge-of-your seat until the very end.  It’s so twisty with so many shocking revelations in each chapter.  It kept me up many nights wanting to know what would happen next.  I kept trying to figure out what was going on, but it was so much more twisted than I thought. 

With each chapter, the characters became more vivid in my mind.  This story is a true example of things not always being what they seem.  Just the way I like it. 

I haven’t read anything by this author before, but I will now.  I’ll have to check out her backlist.  I really enjoy her suspenseful writing style. 

This makes my list of one of the best of my 2020 books.
