Finlay Donovan Rolls The Dice (Finlay Donovan, #4)  by Elle Cosimano opens with Finlay Donovan and her nanny, Vero, planning a trip to Atlantic City to pay off some debts, find Javi, and retrieve a stolen car.  But first, they come up with a cover story that backfires miserably.  Finlay and Vero have to be clever and sneaky to accomplish what they set out to do, but will they have to come clean? Thank you, NetGalley, for the Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of Finlay Donovan Rolls The Dice (Finlay Donovan, #4) by Elle Cosimano.  This is one of the books I was most excited about being able to read before it was in stores.  I received the eBook for free in exchange for my honest review. The fourth installment picks up where the last book ended and ties up the loose ends from Finlay Donovan Knocks Them Dead (Finlay Donovan, #3)  . . . so much so that I thought that this was going to be the last book in the series.  However, Finlay Donovan Rolls The Dice ends up having a couple of cliffhangers,

Book Review: The Last To Vanish by Megan Miranda

The Last to Vanish by Megan Miranda opens in Cutter's Pass at The Passage Inn, an upscale hotel in the mountains of North Carolina. Abigail Lovett is the manager at the inn and has been for the last ten years. Even though Abby considers it home, she often still feels like an outsider even though her aunt and uncle built The Passage Inn themselves. All the disappearances over the years throws the town back into the spotlight when the brother of one of those missing appears late one night asking questions. As Abby helps with his investigation, she realizes how little she knows about her friends, coworkers, and the town.

I'd like to thank NetGalley and Scribner for the Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) that I received for free in exchange for my honest review. I was absolutely thrilled to be chosen to review The Last to Vanish by Megan Miranda, and I wasn't disappointed.

Megan Miranda sure knows how to set the tone and pace to make for an eerie, suspenseful, and heart pounding read. I found myself completely losing track of time while I was immersed in The Last to Vanish. It was that engrossing and fantastic. The only thing that could've made it better for me was if I was staying in a cabin in the Smokey Mountains in North Carolina so that I could've been creeped out completely.

The Last to Vanish is definitely a slow burn read, but with very plausible twists and turns that I didn't expect. There were clues planted very carefully throughout the book that suggests who the killer might be, but there were also red herrings. Because of this, it was easy for me to dismiss the clues, and I didn't figure out who the bad person was until the end, and he/she was presented to me by the author. I'm still thinking about the book several hours after finishing it, and it's definitely one that I will reread down the road. I'm hoping that the author writes a sequel to it . . . that's how much I enjoyed the story.

Five out of five stars is what I give The Last to Vanish by Megan Miranda, and this should be on everyone's "To Be Read" list for 2022. I'm already looking forward to the next novel the author writes.
