    I devoured this book. I would have finished it in one sitting if pesky life things like work and other people hadn't gotten in the way. We follow several different people and a few different storylines, but they were all so unique and the characters had their own distinct voice, so I never got confused. It just flowed and kept my attention the whole time. I may have had to put it down, but I couldn't wait to get back. I really enjoyed T.R. Regan'...

    A brand new series by the author of the Lizzy Gardner series, as well as the Faith McMann Trilogy. As I have read all of her books, I can honestly say I've never been disappointed.

    "Control was power, and power was everything." Wow, talk about powerful! This is my first novel by T.R. Ragan and what a first impression! Her writing was impressive, and the multiple storylines just hit you in the face like a cobweb in the night, you can't break free... you're all wrapped up in them!Jessie Cole has spent 10 years wondering what happened to her sister, Sophie, she's the reason she became a private investigator. After years of sea...

    4.5/5Do you ever have mixed feelings when you pick up a book by an author you’ve heard plenty about but never actually read yourself? It’s like a blend of excitement that you may have just stumbled onto something great and apprehension that you’ll be disappointed. While the disappointment always stinks, finding a winner more than makes up for the flops and from the moment I started reading Her Last Day I knew that I had found a new favorite...

    Finding a new series -especially one that shows promise - to me is akin to finding gold pellets in a stream. First comes the excitement of discovery, followed by the hope of more to come. Such is the case here, with the introduction of Sacramento, California, private investigator Jessie Cole. I won't say it was love at first word, but she's interesting enough that I look forward to future adventures.As is the usual case with series heroines, Jess...

    This was my first book from this author. Her Last Day grips you right from the start, exactly what a prologue should do. Once I started, I couldn't put the book down. There is so much going on in this book. There are multiple story lines that all come together nicely in the end.Jessie's younger sister, Sophie disappeared 10 years ago. Having to move on and raise her niece alone, Jessie is now a private investigator and on the case of a missing wo...

    A new PI series from TR Ragan. I loved the Lizzie Gardner and Faith McMann series and couldnt wait for this book. It was one of the first books that I was approved for on Netgalley and it is finally close enough to release date to read and review it. An enjoyable read of Jessie Cole and her niece Olivia. Looking forward to reading more in this series. Thank you to Thomas and Mercer for an advance copy of this book to read and review

    Her Last Day is a book in a new series featuring Private Investigator Jessie Cole. It is my first experience reading a TR Ragan book and while I enjoyed it enough to read more from this author, I ultimately found Her Last Day to be just ok. The book contained, what I would consider, three main story lines. First, Jessie shoots a prominent lawyer in self-defense and faces the threat of jail time if she can not prove she was the attacked and not th...

    I received this via Goodreads Giveaways in exchange for an honest review. All my opinions are my own. ----Great story idea, but ultimately not my thing over all.(2 stars for me doesn't mean it was a bad book, we nust didn't get along as well as I wanted.)

    Her Last Day by T. R. Ragan is the first in the Jessie Cole series. Jessie Cole is a private detective raising her young niece after the disappearance of her sister. This book held me captive from the first page. She really knocked it out of the park with this one! I've read all of T.R Ragan's series and this is my favorite (so far). Excellent cast of characters and a creepy serial killer. And a storyline that kept me reading late into the night....

    Oh My God!First of all, thanks to NetGalley for providing me with an ARC of this book in exchange of an honest review! Thank you NetGalley for giving me a chance to read this utterly awesome book!I was hooked right from the beginning. I must admit it was a bit gory, the whole escaping from the burning car bit but it hooked me right in!My favorite thing about this book was that it didn't focus on just one incident. It started with Sophie's missing...

    Thank you NetGalley for the ARC of Her Last Day by T.R. Ragan that I read and reviewed.This was one of the best books that I read so far this year. Even though it started out slowly, Her Last Day picked up the pace and had exciting story and an amazing group people throughout the book.I loved Jessie Cole, the PI who lost her sister ten years ago when she disappeared and no one knows what happened to her. Then there is crime reporter Ben Morrison ...

    I received this ARC from NetGalley. This book was SOOOOOOOOOOOOO good! I really liked it and I couldn't wait to finish it and see what happened at the end because through most of it, I had no idea how it would actually end. I have never read a book by TR Ragan before and I was pleasantly surprised. From page 1, the book was suspenseful and interesting. The characters were great and the story, a little crazy, but not so that it was unbelievable. J...

    Her Last Dayby T.R. RaganPub Date 24 Oct 2017I Recommend This Book Last updated on 03 Jul 2017I love T..R. Ragan's books for their brutal look at a society that has lost its moral compass. Her latest offering in a new series has PI Jessie Cole looking for her sister Sophie who disappeared years ago while also taking on the responsibility of raising Sophie's now teen-aged daughter Olivia. Entering the scene is reporter Ben Morrison who somehow kno...

    Consider me hooked! I loved this book! I have read many of T. R. Ragan's other books including the Faith McCann series and some of the Lizzy Gardner and they are all great. She is fantastic with character development, I instantly liked Jessie, Olivia, Zee, Ben, etc in this book. There are 3 different subjects going on during the course of this book, each just as interesting as the others so I was constantly entertained. You have Jessie who was as...

    *I received an ARC of this book in return for an honest review*I have always enjoyed T.R. Ragan's books. Her flawed heroines have always been complex and interesting. Jessie Cole is no exception. I was hesitant about picking up another PI book after loving the Lizzy Gardner series, but this one did not disappoint. At times it felt like perhaps there were too many different side stories but it eventually all came together. I've always respected th...

I loved the different story lines throughout the book that all come together to make one great ending. Ben and Jessica make a great team and I hope the ...

    What Worked:1. An engrossing story. Plot, characters, pacing, action, tension, the story flowed well and kept me engaged and swiping my e-reader. The beginning didn't grab me right off but I was slowly sucked into the story. Due to real life, it took me 2 days to read but with sufficient time, I could have read it in one sitting. The story was complex, and after a slowish start, riveting. I cared about all of the characters and I was invested in ...
