  • Slow Burn Mystery

    Last summer I read and really enjoyed Such a Quiet Place by Megan Miranda so I was very excited to get The Last to Vanish from NetGalley. I didn't like any of the characters in this one and that was a good thing, they all seemed a little shady and that helped the mystery as I didn't know who to trust, so of course I was surprised when all was revealed. That's the best thing that could happen to this reader. I have to be honest and say this one is a slow burner of a mystery. There have been six missing person incidents in the last 20 or so years. Where did these missing people go? Was it the elements, animals, or was something far more sinister at work? The book is very atmospheric putting you right in the Appalachian mountains of North Carolina. I have visited the area often and absolutely loved it there. I really enjoyed the journey of getting to the answer, especially the last two (4 and 5) parts of the book. Megan Miranda never disappoints.

  • Couldn't stop listening!

    Abigail Lovett loves her job and home at The Passage Inn at Cutter’s Pass, a place where people can enjoy the gorgeous North Carolina mountains, and it’s a point of access to the Appalachian trail. However, the town of Cutter’s Pass has a shadow cast upon it. It’s notoriously known as the spot where several have hiked out never to be seen again, starting with the notorious “Fraternity Four,” leading up to more recent disappearances. Even being there ten years Abby is still sort of counted as an outsider, and the questions she asks keeps her on the edge still. Landon West, a journalist, is the last to have disappeared, and now his brother, Trey, is at the inn trying to find out what happened. Trey’s appearance is stirring up the past, and shaking loose secrets, and Abby can’t help herself, she wants to know what happened. The Last to Vanish was eerie and atmospheric! I wasn’t sure if there would be some supernatural elements to the story just by the spooky feel of the story, but there weren’t any, which just goes to show real-life is creepy enough without it! I was surprised by most of the revelations and twists I’m happy to say! I couldn’t stop listening! The story was so good! Abby was a great narrator, her unease palpable and I wanted to get to the truth just as much as she did! Alex Allwine’s performance brought Abby and the story to life, lending a haunting quality that kept me on the edge of my seat!

  • Entertaining, but has some flaws

    Thanks to Simon & Schuster and Netgalley for providing me with an eARC of this book to read and review. The basic premise of this book is interesting. The town of Cutters Pass is a common base camp for hikers wanting to hike the Appalachian Trail. However, the town also has a history of 6 hikers (at various times) disappearing without a trace. Abby, the main character moved to Cutters Pass 10 years ago, and works at the inn owned by her Aunt. The first half of the book really drags, with much happening then the pace really picks up in the second half. None of the characters are very likeable or well fleshed out. I would say that while the suspense in the second half was entertaining, the draggy first half and poorly developed characters make this a mediocre thriller at best.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A disappointing mystery

    "The Last to Vanish" is set in a town in Appalachia. Abigail (aka Abby) has been working at the local inn for ten years. Twenty-five years earlier four young men, dubbed "The Fraternity Four" disappeared while on a hiking trip. Since that time several others have gone missing, and the town now has a questionable reputation. When Trey, brother of Landon, the last person to go missing, appears at the inn, Abby and others in the town wonder about his motives. Eventually Abby discovers the truth about all the disappearances. While the plot of this book is interesting, personally I found it a less than stellar read.
