Because you were the only one I ever really wanted to tell it to.Therapist Dr. Mark Fabian is dead, bludgeoned in his office. But that doesn't stop former patient Nadine Raines from talking to him -- in her head. Why did she come back to her hometown after so many years away? Everyone h...

  • Vicki (sun.sand.and.books)
    4/5 stars. I received a copy of this from my local bookstore. This was actually a pretty good thriller. I haven't read one quite like this in a while. It takes a bit to get used to the changing POV's and the constant switching between the past and present. You really dont know what your going to get once the POV's changed which was unique in its own way. The good thing about this was that it kept me guessing until the end. This book did a great j...

    Thanks to William Morrow and TLC Book Tours for the free advanced copy in exchange for my honest review. More psychological thrillers for the summer TBR! This was my introduction to Emily Arsenault and I was not disappointed. This was an incredibly atmospheric read and has a slow build that keeps the tension throughout. That opening chapter will pull you right in!Dr. Mark Fabian is dead. He is found bludgeoned to death in his office. As Detective...
  • Milena
    The Last Thing I Told You by Emily Arsenault is a tale of murder of a psychologist in a sleepy New England town and his former patient, who may or may not be involved in his murder. I really enjoyed this slow-burning, character driven suspense. I found both main characters, Henry, the cop investigating the murder, and Nadine, psychologist's former patient and one of the suspects, complex and very interesting. I liked the alternating POVs between ...

    Dark tale about a woman and her younger, troubled days, a murdered psychologist, and a small town cop. Dr. Mark Fabian is found murdered in his office. His patients are suspected: including former patient, Nadine Raines, and Johnny Streeter, now serving a life sentence for a mass shooting at a local retirement home. But Nadine and Johnny were patients over 20 years ago, in 1997...what could they possibly have to do with Dr. Fabian's death? And wh...

    I received an ARC of this book via Goodreads Giveaways. This is a perfectly fine mystery, alternating between the perspective of a small-town cop and a small-town girl, Nadine, who once committed a "shocking act of violence" against a high school teacher and is now a suspect in the death of her former psychologist. Though the initial act of violence isn't nearly as shocking as I anticipated, it is certainly one that would rattle a small town comm...
  • Myrna Gottlieb
    I received a free uncorrected proof of "The Last Thing I told You" by Emily Arsenault from Goodreads in exchange for an honest review.This book did not work for me. I found it difficult to follow and repetitive. The genre is psychological suspense with an unreliable narrator. Actually there are two narrators, each one speaking in the first person.A psychoanalyst about to retire has been murdered in his office- bludgeoned to death. We learn about ...
  • Shannon (Mrsreadsbooks)

  • Tracy (The Pages In-Between)
    Thank you to William Morrow Books #Partner for gifting me this copy. All opinions are my own.I rate this book a 3 out of 5 Stars.This book started at a blazing speed for me, I blew through the first 100 pages the first night I picked it up, but sadly it slowed down for me quite a bit. This is a very long book, and there is a lot of info dump and backstory. It almost feels like this was two separate books mashed together. I think just a book focus...

  • Whitney
    I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review. What I wish I'd also received was a better pay-off for a story with a lot of promise. Generally, I like novels about therapists and psychologists. The variety of patient stories, the struggle for their own stability, and the chance of great surprise when it turns out they are much scarier than anything you’d hear in their sessions. Not everybody can be Hannibal, but there’s always ...

    This book had an intriguing premise. Psychotherapist Dr. Mark Fabian is found murdered in his office. Detective Henry Peacher, who is investigating the case, finds himself delving deep into the past, into the lives of Fabian's former patients, the history of the local senior home, and his own personal connections to the small town of Campion, where the murder took place and where Detective Peacher is based. Who wanted Fabian dead, or -- more accu...

    I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I really enjoyed this book in the beginning. It read fast, I was invested in figuring out the secret and discovering the truth about who killed Dr. Fabian, but the ending kind of killed the rest of the story for me. I felt as if the author purposefully sent the reader's attention towards one specific subject, she made this character's actions feel as if they are expressing...

    Thank you goodreads, this was a giveaway win!Honestly, this one was a little boring. It was a little slow, and alot of stiff I felt that was just filler, it didn't really have anything to do with what was going on....The story takes place in Campion, Connecticut. It goes back and forth between Detective Henry Preacher, who is investigating the death of therapist Mark Fabian and Nadine Raines, a former patient of Fabian's. Nadine is not a very lik...
  • Amanda
    [I recieced an arc for an honest review] I was intrigued from the first page / prologue. 13 sentences that's all that the prologue was made of and it automatically had me excited to read the book. Yet, at some point my interest faded and I can't tell you exactly why that was.The book consisted of two point of views. The first being Nadine, and we see through her eyes as a teen and as an adult. As a young girl she has no idea what is going on in ...
  • An Introvert Reads
    3.5 Stars - This is the first book that I read from Emily Arsenault and I did truly enjoy her writing, however for me, this wasn't faced paced enough. I wasn't dying to know more, and wasn't really invested. Other than the fact that it wasn't faced paced enough I gave it 3.5 stars since I did really like the difference POV's between Nadine and Henry (the detective), and I really liked Henry ! I felt like he brought a realness to the book, especia...
  • Jennifer Brown-flavin
    I won an ARC copy of this book, set to be released on July 24, 2018. In exchange for the book I promised to post a honest review. For me, I had a hard time keeping interest. I had a few thoughts of quitting after 100 pages in but I'm not a quitter. It just wasn't my cup of tea. It wasn't terrible but didn't carry the suspense or dramatic story line to keep me fully hooked.Dr. Mark Fabian, a therapist, is found dead. Bludgeoned to death in his off...

The murder of Fabian, who Nadine talks to in her head, happens just after Nadine returns to town. Both are sympathetic and intriguing characters. There are som...
