Three sisters’ secrets collide in a shocking novel of suspense by the Wall Street Journal and Amazon Charts bestselling author of the Mercy Kilpatrick series.
Twenty years ago Emily Mills’s father was murdered, and she found his body hanging in the backyard. Her younger sister, Madison, claims she was asleep in her room. Her older sister, Tara, claims she was out with friends. The tragedy drove their mother to suicide and Tara to leave town forever. The killer was caught. The case closed.
Ever since, Emily and Madison have tried to forget what happened that night—until an eerily similar murder brings it all back. It also brings FBI special agent Zander Wells to the Oregon logging town. As eager as he is to solve the brutal double slaying, he is just as intrigued with the mystery of Emily’s and her sisters’ past.
When more blood is shed, Zander suspects there’s a secret buried in this town no one wants unearthed. Is it something Emily and Madison don’t know? Or aren’t telling? And Tara? Maybe Emily can’t bear to find her. Because when Tara disappeared, she took a secret of her own with her.
GENRE: Mystery / Thriller
My Rating: **** ( 4 of 5 stars)
The Last Sister by Kendra Elliot is a wonderfully written, suspenseful crime thriller. In this start to a new series, we are faced with a possible copy-cat killer, years after the original case was closed and the killer caught.
Emily’s father was murdered years earlier. She is unfortunate enough to be the one to find the bodies in an apparent double-murder. When the sheriff doesn’t see the clues pointing to a hate crime, Emily takes it upon herself to call in the FBI.
The characters are nicely developed, the mystery is well-plotted, and the pacing is great. I was fully engrossed by the end of the first chapter and couldn’t read fast enough. I am really looking forward to more from this author.
