The new thriller from Wall Street Journal bestselling author…
THE LAST SISTER
Twenty years ago, Emily Mills’ 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 that 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.
My Review: 4.5 Stars!
Small town secrets can be deadly, especially if they are left to fester for twenty years and history repeats itself. A closed case may not be closed after all and a new double homicide may be linked to the dirty little secrets that hide in plain sight as racial hatred rears its ugly head, once again.
The murder of Emily’s father destroyed her family and a man was punished, but two new racially motivated murders will bring FBI agent Zander Wells to Oregon. Together, Emily and Zander will bat at a hornet’s nest and unleash a swarm of intrigue, lies and ugly secrets, but at what cost?
THE LAST SISTER by Kendra Elliot is dark, edgy and even quirky at times as we visit a small Oregon town where everybody thinks they know everybody else’s business, but do they or could they all know just enough to keep from being stung?
One family, torn apart, three sisters torn apart until one great truth is revealed that could shred the fabric of lies this town has been built on. Excellent reading, wonderfully unique characters and a twist at the end that ties everything together, even a budding romance!
I received a complimentary ARC edition from Montlake Romance! This is my honest and voluntary review.
“Elliot skillfully unravels layers of intersecting stories,
each one integral to the overall story of the Mills family
and their small-town secrets. Readers will want to see
more from this author.” – Publisher’s Weekly
“Part budding romance, part compelling backstory,
part prescient tale of racism: provocative on all fronts”
– Kirkus Reviews

With vivid characters, an intriguing plot, an atmospheric Pacific Northwest setting and an edgeof-your-seat ending, THE LAST SISTER is her best work yet.
