The Last House Guest by Megan Miranda

Available June 18: The Last Guest

**** 4/5: Loved it

The Last House Guest is another intricate plot with a Cape Cod twist from Megan Miranda.



Recommended readers:

  • Fans of Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl, Paula Hawkin’s The Girl on the Train
  • If you like psychological thrillers and Megan Miranda’s previous novels
  • If you want a brain-busting, page-turner

Here’s my Rankings:

  • 4/5 for characters
  • 3/5 for plot
  • 3.5/5 overall


Littleport, Maine is a summer vacation town – where Avery Greer lives and works year-round and Sadi Loman visits her wealthy family’s summer home. The two girls grow up together – becoming inseparable each summer that Sadi comes to stay in Littleport. And Avery becomes part of the Loman family, even working for them.

A little more straight forward than the reverse-plot of Miranda’s first thriller (which was a definitely 4+ stars), The Last House Guest is still cleverly written with an intricate plot. The small town of Littleport with its contrasting culture of locals vs summer visitors further confuses the plot – keep you guessing until the end.
