The Last to See Her

Courtney Evan Tate. Mira, $17.99 trade paper (384p) ISBN 978-0-7783-0941-3

This intriguing tale of love and betrayal from Tate (Such Dark Things) focuses on two outwardly close sisters, each with a big secret: Genevieve, a successful romance writer undergoing a contentious divorce, and Megan, a renowned surgeon with a loving husband and a five-year-old son. After the divorce is finalized, Gen agrees to meet Meg in New York City, where Meg has come for a convention, to celebrate. Late one night, Gen goes out for a walk from their hotel wearing Meg’s coat and disappears. It eventually becomes clear that one of the two has set in motion a plan to expose a secret she hopes will harm the other sister. Only the secret is not what she thinks it is, and it may be too late to stop what she has put in motion. The agenda of a character with a family connection to the sisters complicates an already devious plot, and the intertwined secrets slowly emerge as the action builds to a tidy conclusion. Fans of domestic suspense will keep turning the pages to see what happens next. [em]Agent: Kevan Lyon, Marsal Lyon Literary. (Dec.) [/em]
