I hear myself whispering. Not again. Not again. Why did I ever come back here? Surely because of you. Because I thought of something I'd always meant to tell you. Because you were the only one I ever really wanted to tell it to.Therapist Dr. Mark Fabian is dead, bludgeoned in his office. But that doesn't stop former patient Nadine Raines from talking to him -- in her head. Why did she come back to her hometown after so many years away? Everyone here thinks she's crazy. And she has to admit, they might have good reason to think so. She committed a shockingly violent act when she was sixteen and has never really been able to explain that dark impulse, even to Fabian. Now that Fabian's dead, why is she still trying? Meanwhile, as Detective Henry Peacher investigates Fabian's death, he discovers that shortly before he died, Fabian pulled the files of two former patients. One was of Nadine Raines, one of Henry's former high school classmates. Henry still remembers the disturbing attack on a...

The Last Thing I Told You Reviews
I received an ARC of this title from the publisher for an honest review.
I'm not going to review this one because I didn't get very far. I read about 50 pages in and I didn't really get even the beginnings of a good picture on any of the characters. So I felt nothing for them, or the story. In all likelihood, it probably gets better, but I'm DNFing.
I won an ARC copy of this book, set to be released on July 24, 2018. In exchange for the book I promised to post a honest review. For me, I had a hard time keeping interest. I had a few thoughts of quitting after 100 pages in but I'm not a quitter. It just wasn't my cup of tea. It wasn't terrible but didn't carry the suspense or dramatic story line to keep me fully hooked.

I received an ARC of this book via Goodreads Giveaways.
This is a perfectly fine mystery, alternating between the perspective of a small-town cop and a small-town girl, Nadine, who once committed a "shocking act of violence" against a high school teacher and is now a suspect in the death of her former psychologist. Though the initial act of violence isn't nearly as shocking as I anticipated, it is certainly one that would rattle a small town community.
Nadine is convinced that there is some kind ...more
I received a free uncorrected proof of "The Last Thing I told You" by Emily Arsenault from Goodreads in exchange for an honest review.
This book did not work for me. I found it difficult to follow and repetitive. The genre is psychological suspense with an unreliable narrator. Actually there are two narrators, each one speaking in the first person.
A psychoanalyst about to retire has been murdered in his office- bludgeoned to death. We learn about this from a mentally disturbed former patient, Nad ...more
An interesting twisted tale.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review. What I wish I'd also received was a better pay-off for a story with a lot of promise. Generally, I like novels about therapists and psychologists. The variety of patient stories, the struggle for their own stability, and the chance of great surprise when it turns out they are much scarier than anything you’d hear in their sessions. Not everybody can be Hannibal, but there’s always that chance that the plaid suit and the kitchen utensi ...more
