Littleport, Maine is like two separate towns: a vacation paradise for wealthy holidaymakers and a simple harbour community for the residents who serve them. Friendships between locals and visitors are unheard of - but that's just what happened with Avery Greer and Sadie Loman.

Each summer for a decade the girls are inseparable - until Sadie is found dead. When the police rule the death a suicide, Avery can't help but feel there are those in the community, including a local detective and Sadie's brother Parker, who blame her. Someone knows more than they're saying, and Avery is intent on clearing her name before she's branded a killer.

Reviews for The Last House Guest

Intricately plotted... Ms. Miranda brings heightened suspense and a twist to this familiar scenario by telling the story, which unfolds over 15 days, in reverse chronological order. * New York Times on All The Missing Girls * Are you paying attention? You'll need to be; this thriller will test your brain with its reverse chronological structure, and it's a page-turner to boot. * ELLE on All the Missing Girls * Both [Gillian] Flynn's and Miranda's main characters also reclaim the right of female characters to be more than victim or femme fatale... All the Missing Girls is set to become one of the best books of 2016. * Los Angeles Review of Books on All The Missing Girls * A twisty, compulsive read, I loved it. * Ruth Ware, author of The Woman in Cabin 10, on All The Missing Girls * A smart, suspenseful, and emotionally complex thriller... Lock the doors, turn off the phone, and read until the last satisfying page. * Alafair Burke, author of The Wife, on All The Missing Girls * The vivid description of this isolated town sets the stage for the revelation of Littleport's secrets...Miranda's exploration of how Avery's and Sadie's lives intertwine give the story its depth. Fans of Michele Campbell and Mary Kubica, who like family drama supporting their suspense, will enjoy. * Booklist * Compelling... An evocative... thriller * Kirkus * Miranda delivers a clever, stylish mystery that will seize readers like a riptide. * Publishers' Weekly (Starred review) * Will leave you on the edge-of-your-seat clutching onto your hubby for dear life. * Glamour * Dizzying plot twists and multiple surprise endings are this author's stock in trade, but she warms them up by establishing the close friendship between Sadie Loman...and Avery Greer...And, oh boy, does she ever know how to write a twisty-turny ending (or two, or more). * Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review * A lightning-fast mystery, full of menace and unexpected twists and turns that will have readers on the edge of their seats. A riveting read! * Mary Kubica, author of The Good Girl * The perfect summer thriller ... twisty and tense, with a pace that made my heart race. An edge-of-your-seat, up-all-night read. * Riley Sager, author of The Last Time I Lied * Fast-paced and gripping. * People *
