A young woman is left reeling after a broken engagement is followed by a shocking death—one she must prove was a murder, in the latest psychological thriller from New York Times bestselling author Kate White.

It’s summer in New York City, but Kiki Reed isn’t feeling very sunny. She recently broke off her engagement to Jamie Larsson, a great guy, but just not “the one.” And although she knows it was for the best, she feels guilty for hurting him.

When Kiki accepts an invitation to a party at a friend’s Connecticut country house, she knows Jamie will be there, too, but decides to get their first interaction over with. When they come face to face, their exchange is brief and pleasant, a huge relief for her.

Then, as the party is winding down, a shot rings out. The few remaining guests run outside to find Jamie inside his car, dead from a gunshot wound.

Shocked and grieving, Kiki soon hears that the police are leaning toward ruling it a suicide, but she knows that Jamie was moving on from their breakup, and truly doubts that he’s taken his own life. Determined to find the truth, she rents a house in the area to look for the missing link that will get the police to take her seriously. But as she peels away the layers, she uncovers something far more sinister than she had ever imagined—and it may be her life on the line next. . . .


Suspenseful, intricate, and gripping!

The Last Time She Saw Him is a complex, twisty tale that takes you into the life of Kiki Reed, a successful career coach who, after her ex-fiancé commits suicide at the end of a dinner party they’ve both attended, decides to do whatever she can to prove there is no way he would ever take his own life, but rather he was murdered.

The prose is tight and intense. The characters are secretive, ruthless, and driven. And the plot unravels quickly into an ominous tale full of twists, turns, lies, deception, manipulation, suspicious personalities, revelations, and murder.

Overall, The Last Time She Saw Him is a quick, tortuous, sinister tale by White that had me hooked from the very first page and, ultimately, left me satisfied, surprised, and entertained.
