Even the deepest-buried secrets can find their way to the surface…
Moments before she dies, Nicola’s grandmother Betty whispers to her that there are babies at the bottom of the garden.

But will unearthing painful family secrets end up tearing Nicola’s family apart?
The emotionally-charged suspense novel from Linda Green, the bestselling author of While My Eyes Were Closed and After I’ve Gone
The story starts off with Nicola’s grandmother asking her to look after her babies just before she sadly passes away. Nicola is confused as to what she means and gets no answers from her mother. Things start to unravel when Maisie, Nicola’s youngest daughter, discovers a small human bone at the bottom of Nicola’s grandmother’s garden.
The discovery opens a whole can of worms that certain people would prefer to not come out in the open. It’s obvious that Nicola’s mother knows more than she is letting on which causes friction between the two women. Nicola becomes like a dog with a bone that she refuses to let go of. I have to admit that the author had my intrigue piqued and I was behind Nicola all the way.
Overall this is quite a sombre read due to the nature of the storyline. You will understand what I mean when you read it for yourself. I liked how the author has you changing your mind about different characters as well as casting suspicion on others. On one hand I felt guilty by the end in thinking badly of some of them and on the other I was annoyed with myself for not seeing through others. It will definitely mess with your mind!
There Last Thing She Told Me is packed full of mystery and suspense with some shocking twists that I didn’t see coming. Once I started this book, I couldn’t put it down. The author commanded my attention at all times and she got it as I was so engrossed. This is only the second of the authors books I have read and will definitely be adding more of her books to my ‘to be read’ pile.
