The Last Time I Saw You by Liv Constantine
eBook review copy; 320 pages
The Last Time I Saw You by Liv Constantine is a recommended psychological thriller.
Dr. Kate English is shocked when her mother, a beloved philanthropist,
is found murdered. Kate lives an enviable life style as a wealthy
heiress and doctor. She has a handsome husband and a daughter. After the
death, she reaches out to and rekindles her friendship with
her high school friend, Blaire Barrington. When Kate receives a text
message saying that she is next, Kate tells Blaire, who begins to
investigate all of Kate's friends and relatives to unearth the killer.
As the text messages continue, can the killer be caught before Kate is
the next victim?
This psychological thriller does delivery on the tension and suspense as the threats to Kate's life continue. Expect a long laundry list of suspects and numerous motives in this soap opera of a thriller.
Although the characters aren't very well developed or believable, and
the plot is predictable, it does keep things moving along with one twist
after another in The Last Time I Saw You. Some readers are going to find the whole lifestyle of the rich and
famous vibe ever present in this novel way-over-the-top, and it is.
While you want her to find closure at the beginning, it must be noted
that Kate becomes increasingly annoying as a character. The narrative
starts out strong and holds your attention until things begin to falter
and become tedious.
This is a good choice for an airplane book or vacation read. It will
keep you entertained and serve to pass the time, but if you should set
it aside you won't be devastated.
