Book Review by Tracy Farnsworth

Sally Atkins came into Olivia Berrington's life like a whirlwind. The two quickly became college buddies and were inseparable until one act drove them apart. Now, Sally is dead, after succumbing to her injuries received in a car crash in New York where she lived with her husband and daughter. When William, Sally's husband, asks to meet with Olivia, she is hesitant but soon agrees. The more they talk, the more they realize Sally is not the person they believed her to be, and they begin their quest to unravel the truth about Sally.

At first, I struggled a little with the storyline. The Last Time I Saw You begins with a high-speed chase, then merges into the notification that someone is not being allowed to move in to a rental. Those scenes made no sense until later in the book. Once the book jumps to Olivia, things began lining up. From there, the book bounces back and forth from past to present as Olivia and Sally's relationship develops.

It's at that point, where I became very involved with the plot and characters. I could see where things were heading, and I had an inkling into what was really behind Sally's traits. The more I read, the more I wanted to see Olivia and William discover the truth and decide what they needed/wanted from their own futures. The writing is crisp and certainly keeps you on your toes, and that's what really makes this book an ideal choice for me.
