I really liked the premise of Her Last Letter, not to mention the many twists — especially the one at the end. Mar 17, Lori Anderson rated it liked it. Another near-freebie I ran across via the Kindle. And while it's definitely not high literature, it was a quick read that blew the cobwebs out of my head. The premise -- three sisters. The other two are married. One of the marrieds finds a letter written by the dead sister saying she had an affair with the boyfriend of one of the sisters and she's afraid he's going to kill her "like he did the other one".
The question now is, which husband did it? Thrown into the mix is an ex-boyfr Another near-freebie I ran across via the Kindle. Thrown into the mix is an ex-boyfriend that fell within the time frame who suddenly reappears on the scene, one of the husbands who may or may not be cheating, and one of the husbands who may or may not be beating his wife.

Her Last Letter
Mix that with some tidy wrap-ups when strings are left dangling. You're left with a decent night's read, but it all ends up tidy and a little predictable, where the author had the chance to be edgy and exciting. Lori Anderson Blog Shop Facebook Mar 18, Imogen Rose rated it it was amazing. Johnson spins an exciting whodunit, where no one can be trusted, and everyone is implicated.
I enjoyed every minute of reading it. Nancy immediately hooked me and kept me captivated right to the end. May 20, Monica rated it it was ok Shelves: I only liked one thing about this book and that was the setting. I bought it for 99 cents on my Nook and what made me purchase it was the fact it took place in my hometown of Glenwood Springs, Colorado. I enjoyed the shout out to local places I love like the Italian Underground,but that is all I enjoyed. The character development was non- existent and it was a lot of dialogue. Sometimes it reminded me of how third graders write a story after you teach them about quotation marks which is all dial I only liked one thing about this book and that was the setting.
Sometimes it reminded me of how third graders write a story after you teach them about quotation marks which is all dialogue and no clue who is talking or what is happening. May 30, Jean added it Shelves: Her Last Letter was nice, but not much of a mystery. It focuses on Gwyn, who recently discovers a letter written by her sister who was murdered. She then decides to discover who murdered her beloved Kelly. Unfortunately, Gwyn did little investigating, chosing to do the smart thing instead, and hire a private investigator.
The result wasn't very interesting. The book focused on skiing and the life of rich married women more than Kelly's murder. The ending was bland, and was not shocking or scary Her Last Letter was nice, but not much of a mystery. The ending was bland, and was not shocking or scary in any way. The idea was a good one, but the book wasn't much of a mystery. Apr 25, Maggie White rated it really liked it. A good wee read. Might be one to take on holiday and read by the pool or on the beach.
This sets off a catalogue of reactions that Gwyn had not expected especially when Kelly admits that she has slept with her sister's boyfriend - but which sister and which boyfriend she doesn't confess to. Good book and worth reading. Feb 02, Melanie Kealey rated it did not like it. Really had a hard time getting through this one. The characters weren't likeable, the story was filled with too many superficial details and not enough emotion to make me care about Gwyn, her sister, or even if the killer was caught. Gwyn, the main character, was too weirdly moody and irrational to warm up to and the dialogue between her and everyone else was stilted and forced.
I picked up this ebook because the price was right, but I only finished it to get through it. Aug 17, Karen rated it it was amazing. The actual storyline was gripping and suspenseful and I loved how the author developed the characters. With that said, I was quite disappointed in the ending as many main characters just dropped off in the novel with no real resolution to some thematic conflicts.
There were just enough twists and turns to the main storyline all the way to the end. Overall a pretty good read. Dec 24, Jerusha rated it liked it. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Well, overall, it was OK. A cheap buy on the Kindle, and I was hoping it would be a great suspense story.
I was hoping for better characters the most interesting character was the dead sister. I was hoping for a better ending you mean the crazy suspect was the killer all along. I won't rush out to read more by this author. Aug 10, Danielle rated it really liked it. Dec 07, Diane J.

May 24, Marcia Lechleitner rated it it was amazing. It is hard to put this book down. Excellent read and very mysterious. Jul 23, Katy rated it it was ok. This book had the recipe for something really great but ended up being just meh. The author was overly descriptive on a lot of aspects of this book and sometimes the book felt weighed down by insignificant details. It also felt like it took a really long time to get the the point of the book. It started out well with Gwyn finding the letter from Kelly but then the plot sort of trudged along without much happening but a lot of pages going by.
Then once the climax of the book happened and I use the This book had the recipe for something really great but ended up being just meh. Then once the climax of the book happened and I use the term climax loosely , it felt very scattered and hurried. The amount of detail used in the insignificant points of the book were much more than the detail used in what turned out to be the point of the whole book.
Also something I noticed that I'm not sure many others would've noticed: Gwyn was supposedly born and raised in Glenwood Springs, but the author had her use terminology that is not used in Colorado. As I grew up in Colorado, I would know. She uses terms like "door wall" to refer to a sliding glass door and the term "party store" for liquor store. Both of those are terms used in Michigan but definitely not used in Colorado.
A little bit of research would've yielded that information. It led to less authenticity of the character for me. Gwyn and Linda, sisters, must figure out who murdered their sister, Kelly, especially after finding a letter written by Kelly implicating one of their husbands or an old boyfriend of Gwyn's to have been having an affair with her, and fearing for her life. The book is from Gwyn's point of view only, and she soon discovers that her husband may be cheating on her but keeps mum about it. As far as the sisters are concerned, the cheater must be the murderer also.

A private investigator is hired to dig into the husband's pasts and current goings and comings. Evidence soon comes to light about the men. It is a twist you won't figure out until the last couple of chapters. Really loved this book. It was filled with the right amount of suspense and Gwyn's view point was the perfect angle of this story.
A bit of an artist myself, so I was able to relate with the fascination of art that is Gwyn's passion. It is set in Glenwood, Colorado, which made me want to try skiing and snowmobiling; it all sounded interesting minus the tumbles here and there. I told my boyfriend about this book, and even though he'd rather read something about mages and dragons Dragonlance , he thought the plot was interesting.
That's a good sign. Feb 15, Lesley Smith rated it it was amazing.

It kept me guessing to the very end who the killer was. There were enough characters to make the story interesting without causing confusion. Johnson is very good at creating interesting, believably flawed characters. The story surrounds three attractive sisters who suddenly became wealthy after their father died and left them millions of dollars that prior to his demise none of them had known about. At the time of the story the youngest sister Kelly has been murdered and the main suspect, her ex-boyfrend Craig has disappeared.
The eldest sister and main character, Gwyn, has been in a state of mourning since the killing.
Even though Gwyn is wealthy and married to the handsome Trevor, she remains so paranoid about the murder that she suspicions her own husband as well as her middle sister's boyfriend Wolfgang. She has been seeking therapy to overcome her grief, but when she finds a cryptic letter from her dead sister that points to the sister having had an affair with either Trevor or Wolfgang and also exhibiting fear that the lover might try to murder her, Gwyn throws herself into finding out who the murderer is. This of course puts a major strain on her own marriage as well as her relationship with her middle sister Linda.
There are lots of twists and turns until the very end. One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful. Did have me guessing until the end.
