Book Details:

Book Title The Last Thing She Said (A Chris Matheson Cold Case Mystery #3) by Lauren Carr
Category:  Adult Fiction (18 +),  386 pages
Genre:  Mystery
Publisher:  Acorn Book Services
Release date:   July 22, 2019
Content Rating:  PG-13 (Lauren Carr's books are murder mysteries, so there are murders involved. Occasionally, a murder will happen on stage. There is sexual content, but always behind closed doors. Some mild swearing (a hell or a damn few and far between). No F-bombs!

"Too many twists and turns to easily share about this book. Nevertheless, Carr has pulled off another "hit" that kept me reading in one setting until the clues were so well together that the villain fell into our laps...or Chris's, LOL Carr has put a lot into the book beyond the mysteries this time...Characters enjoyed chocotinis, visited book stores...and even blundered into getting engaged (the ring had been purchased 4 months ago)... But, for me, a special thank you for the political spoof at a time when politics at the national level is devastating, gave me a laugh and lightened the load of it all!" - Review by Glenda Bixler, Book Reader's Heaven

Book Description:
“I’m working on the greatest mystery ever,” was the last thing noted mystery novelist Mercedes Livingston said to seven-year-old Chris Matheson before walking out of Hill House Hotel never to be seen again.

For decades, the writer’s fate remained a puzzling mystery until an autographed novel and a letter put a grown-up Chris Matheson on the trail of a cunning killer. With the help of a team of fellow retired law enforcement officers, each a specialist in their own field of investigation, Chris puts a flame to this cold case to uncover what had really happened that night Mercedes Livingston walked out of Hill House Hotel. Watch out! The clues are getting hot!
I received an advance review audiobook for free and am leaving this review voluntarily. Thank you Lauren Carr and iRead Book Tours. I'm excited to be a part of this tour.

In this installment, Chris and his crew try to puzzle out what happened to mystery novelist Mercedes Livingston? The last time she was seen, she told then seven-year-old Chris “I’m working on the greatest mystery ever.” For decades, her disappearance has been a complete mystery until grown-up Chris is sent a letter that puts him on the train of a cunning killer.

I listened to this book as well. The narrator did an excellent job of bringing this story to life. The characters are eclectic, and their diversity brings depth to the story which allows me to completely immerse myself. I absolutely adore the Gezer Squad! Their antics had me laughing out loud as I read.

As I’ve said before, I love her writing style and ability to weave and intricate mysteries that immediately suck the reader in and doesn’t let go until the story ends. This series continues to be a delightful blend of family saga and mystery filled with twists and turns you won’t see coming. I highly recommend and can’t wait to listen to book 4!
