5-STAR REVIEW: HER LAST GOODBYE By Rick Mofina

The Description

Publication Date: January 25, 2022

Family ties run deep. Family secrets run deeper.

Perfect wife. Doting mom. Jennifer Griffin was loved by everyone, including the women in her suburban-neighborhood book club. Their meetings sometimes went late, but Jenn always came home.

Until that night.

When Greg Griffin wakes to find his wife is not in bed, his blood runs cold. Her book club friends say Jenn left for home hours ago. But she’s missing. Greg tells detectives their marriage is good, but his alibi is razor-thin. With their young son away at a sleepover, Greg had all night to commit a crime. And there are scrapes on his hands…

Investigators discover Jenn has troubling secrets, but she isn’t the only one. With the threads of their picture-perfect life unraveling, Greg is forced to confront the lies that hold their marriage together—and a dark past that refuses to stay buried.

The Review

When Jennifer Griffin disappears after book club, her family’s life gets turned upside down. Her husband, Greg, is a possible suspect, and their young son, Jake, is confused. With Her Last Goodbye, author Rick Mofina delivers a pulse-pounding thriller full of twists and turns.

Having read a number of Mofina’s books, one of the key elements is to expect the unexpected. That quality is apparent throughout this particular title. With all the attention focused on searching for clues, the author weaves in subtle surprises into the storyline.

The investigation is well detailed, beginning with the search efforts and subsequent discovery of Jenn’s car. There’s also an emphasis on family relationships as Greg relies heavily on his sister and father to provide support for Jake. It’s an emotional roller coaster as investigators sift through allegations of affairs and abuse. Ultimately, all of the Griffin family secrets come to light.

A horrifying twist leads to a funeral for Jenn, but once again, the author proves to be the master of suspense. The end result is a culprit no one ever would have suspected, along with a revelation of epic proportions.

Amy Wilson
My name is Amy W., and I am a book addict. I will never forget the day I came home from junior high school to find my mom waiting for me with one of the Harlequin novels from my stash. As she was gearing up for the "you shouldn't be reading this" lecture, I told her the characters get married in the end. I'm just glad she didn't find the Bertrice Small book hidden in my closet. I have diverse reading tastes, evident by the wide array of genres on my Kindle. As I made the transition to an e-reader, I found myself worrying that something could happen to it. As a result, I am now the proud owner of four Kindles -- all different kinds, but plenty of back-ups! "Fifty Shades of Grey" gets high marks on my favorites list -- not for character development or dialogue (definitely not!), but because it blazed new ground for those of us who believe provocative fiction is more than just an explicit cover. Sylvia Day, Lexie Blake, and Kristin Hannah are some of my favorite authors. Speaking of diverse tastes, I also enjoy Dean Koontz, Iris Johansen, and J.A. Konrath. I’m always ready to discover new-to-me authors, especially when I toss in a palate cleanser that is much different than what I would normally read. Give me something with a well-defined storyline, add some suspense (or spice), and I am a happy reader. Give me a happily ever after, and I am downright giddy.
