The Last Thing She Said by Lauren Carr

The Last Thing She Said is the third book in the Chris Matheson Cold Case Mystery series. Enjoy reading about this book and don't forget to enter the giveaway at the bottom of the post.

Book Description:
“I’m working on the greatest mystery ever,” was the last thing noted mystery novelist Mercedes Livingston said to seven-year-old Chris Matheson before walking out of Hill House Hotel never to be seen again.

For decades, the writer’s fate remained a puzzling mystery until an autographed novel and a letter put a grown-up Chris Matheson on the trail of a cunning killer. With the help of a team of fellow retired law enforcement officers, each a specialist in their own field of investigation, Chris puts a flame to this cold case to uncover what had really happened that night Mercedes Livingston walked out of Hill House Hotel. Watch out! The clues are getting hot!
The third book in the Chris Matheson series is a little different than the first two. First, the title does have anything to do with winter or cold. Second, the story starts with a flashback to when Chris was little. He was going to an author book signing with his mother and not happy about it.Chris will always remember this day because the author goes missing that night. Now Chris receives a letter from her years later that calls into question everything about her disappearance. I loved this book because it is about an author and I happened to be reading it at a book conference with a lot of authors. This book is also a little more personal focusing on Chris and Helen’s relationship. I’ve enjoyed their love story since the first book. They work great as a team to solve cold crimes. This book also has some unique characters. A separate but connected part of the mystery deals with a mayor who a councilman is determined to take down. Chris and Helen meet the mayor and help him deal with the councilman in a very funny way. I'm excited to read the next book in the series!
