The Last to Vanish

This is my first book by Megan Miranda, and I’m glad I’m not getting left out of the bookstagram lovefest this one is receiving!
There are two things I find make a thriller a good read (or listen) for me: 1). Location, location, location, and 2). Characters – endearing or rotten to the core, make them interesting with good interactions, and I’m in!
That said, 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐋𝐚𝐬𝐭 𝐭𝐨 𝐕𝐚𝐧𝐢𝐬𝐡 met both my criteria. Set in Cutter’s Pass, North Carolina, where numerous hikers have vanished, Trey West, a journalist, comes to investigate the recent disappearance of his brother. So that’s a definite check on the eerie atmosphere.
Then there is Abby, the manager of the Passage Inn, where Trey is staying. Of course, the two get tangled up together as they search for not only Trey’s brother but clues to what happened to all that went missing. You just know there is more than meets the eye with these two, but what? I liked Abby’s character; in fact, I would have liked her to have been fleshed out even more!
Don’t be in a hurry to see where this one is going. As if hiking a twisty path, enjoy the atmosphere, the erratic weather, the waterfalls, and nature itself. I will definitely be reading more from @meganlmiranda
