This was such a compelling crime thriller This is the first book in Kendra Elliot’s new Columbia River series Mystery history romance sisters small town racism Family secrets zany aunts Emily is shook to the core when she finds her friend’s dead body stabbed multiple times and her husband dead as well hung from a tree The first thought is that this is a murder suicide but Emily is not convinced This is too similar to a prior murder in this small town years ago when Emily‘s father had been killed by hanging Her father‘s murder also led to her mother’s suicide and her older sister’s disappearance This brutal murder brings in the FBI and agent Zander Wells What follows is a fast paced cleverly plotted investigation into the murders both in the present and the past The investigation also brings together Zander and Emily This book was much Mystery than romance in fact I’d be hesitant to call it romantic suspense There is an obvious attraction between Zander and Emily although it is not acted on much I had no problem with this because I was completely invested in this mystery I love the big old house that Emily and her sister Madison lived in with there great aunts I was intrigued by the past Why was their father killed And where was their sister I also was extremely fascinated by the history of Oregon I truly had no idea Oregon had such a dark history I loved playing detective and trying to puzzle this together with Zander and Emily And even though there was very little romance in the story I am really hoping that there will be a little in the next book and it will continue the story of Zander and Emily I really like these two togetherThis book in emojis 🔪 🩸 🌲 🌊 Big thank you to Pub for my gifted copy of this book All opinions are my own For of my reviews and bookish thoughts please visit my blog Or follow me on Bookstagram

Riends The tragedy drove their mother to suicide and Tara to leave town forever The killer was caught The case closedEver 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 s. Kendra Elliot’s The Last Sister is another unfortunate example of an intriguing promising but poorly executed idea Huge sections of the writing seem awkward and unpolished as if the manuscript could have done with at least two rounds of editing The differences between the polished and unpolished aspects of the book gave me the impression that it may have been a collaborative effort The rough sections are really rough The author improperly employs the possessive so that characters appear to be related Emily Mills and Ava McClain are neither sisters nor spouses Nate Copelin and Sean Fitch are neither blood related nor married Their names are related by way of victimhood Omitting surnames and employing the possessive in this way is one of those basic errors you wouldn’t expect in a published work Dialogue exchanges stiff and unnatural to begin with meander off into weird tangents Also the book has a humorous uality I neither expected nor appreciated; the blurb gave me the impression that I was getting a serious crime thriller At several points I thought I was readinglistening to a spoof Zander Wells has some ditzy moments that sent me rolling on the floor In an attempt to puzzle out an inconsistency he says “You told me Tara was there but Tara told the police that she wasn’t” Even I with my zero years of law enforcement experience would have made the logical leap to “Hey maybe Tara was lying to the cops” To continue He’s almost certain that a suspect is armed because he is a suspect in a shooting Seriously I have no solid proof that you’ve shot someone to death I can’t be certain that you even own a firearm So the logical conclusion here is that you must be armed Seriously LOL And I’m sure there must be some FBI agents who care how their interrogation subjects “feel” about their tone and approach but I’ve never read of any not in serious crime thrillers I had to suspend my disbelief at times For an FBI agent investigating a brutal murder in which anyone could be a suspect Zander is awfully chummy with the townsfolk He can waltz into the kitchen of the diner and make reuests of the chef He is on a first name basis with the Barton sisters almost immediately and having tea with them the day of the murder Worse still he allows a civilian to accompany him in the field because attraction one he met two days ago Wasn’t he just interrogating said civilian about a 20 minute time gap he uncovered when reviewing her statement For all he knew she could have been in on the murder and leading him into a trap Other eyebrow raisers include Madison’s decision that her aunt is mistaken about seeing her older sister Why She doesn’t have the long blonde hair she had 20 years ago Was it really so inconceivable that her sister may have changed her hair in the last two decades Finally I’m not especially fond of the “lying by omission to protect you from things that involve you” plot device and its overuse in this novel is especially problematic There is a big difference between harboring a life and family shattering secret I don’t really like this either but I understand to an extent why this is done and deciding what people get to know about potential threats to their safety People have been slashing tires and leaving dead animals on the porch Everyone knows it but elects to keep uiet so as not to worry the others I’m not here for infantilizing adults because ageismperceived fragility and the “don’t worry the auntsgirls about urgent matters” thing was irritating TLDR this one had enormous potential and some great moments but it’s not one I’d recommend

The Last SisterLaying he is just as intrigued with the mystery of Emily’s and her sisters’ pastWhen 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. Thanks to Netgalley and Montlake Romance for an egalley in exchange for an honest review FBI Agents Zander Wells and his partner Ava McClane find themselves in a small Orgeon town that has just witnessed a horrific murder A couple slain in their home and the husband hung by his neck in the backyard Is it a murder suicide A racially motivated crime Or is it connected to a long ago murder Although the local police resent their presence the agents cannot but help feel that someone is watching their every move and isn't uite finished A solid suspense thriller that reeled me in the instant I began page one Great characters fast moving plot but the romance between Wells and a witness was so so At least it didn't distract from the storyline Not that my shelf needs it but it looks like I probably have another series to add to the list Goodreads review published 180120 Publication Date 140120
