Her Last Word Reviews
Her Last Word is a standalone romantic suspense and psychological thriller. Different from Burton’s other Romantic Suspense Her Last Word follows a slightly different formula. You have the main present day storyline interceded with short “Interview Files” that fills in the blanks further on what happened fourteen years ago. I loved how she did this, the interview files at times has a foreshadowing quality sometimes not as ominous just a clue as to who they will be talking to next and ...more
Rock solid pace and plot. I skipped over the romance parts, but I enjoyed the rest of the book.
Her Last Word by Mary Burton
Cold Case vs Current Case…can stirring up the past bring out a killer…and…if it does…is it the old killer, a serial killer or a new one who will become a serial killer?
This was a tidily plotted story with 30 visits to the past interspersed with happenings in the present that explored murder(s) over a decade ago along with current murders. Kaitlin, cousin to Gina, has a bee in her bonnet to find her cousin – dead or alive – and let her rest. With a podcast in mind Kai ...more
I've given this a C+ at AAR, so that's 3.5 stars
I’ve read and enjoyed a number of Mary Burton’s romantic suspense novels and have generally found them to contain complex, intriguing mysteries with a reasonably-sized helping of romance that is enough to satisfy my shippy little heart. Unfortunately however, Ms. Burton’s latest standalone title, Her Last Word is a bit of a mixed bag. The mystery element is once again based on a cold-case, this time the disappearance of a teenaged girl some fourt ...more
This story had a really solid plot and interesting characters but the style of writing really reduced my enjoyment. The current investigation of a murdered woman is in 3rd POV and past tense. This is my preferred writing format. But then the interview tapes where Kaitlin is gathering information on the disappearance of her cousin 14 years ago is written in 1st POV present tense. But sometimes it was 1st POV past tense. And sometimes the interspersed timeline was actually from 14 years ago. You r ...more
Kaitlin Roe's cousin, Gina, was abducted 14 years ago ... Kaitlin was the only witness. She still feels guilt every day of her life .... the abductor told her to run ... and she did. At the time, police suspected she knew more than she was telling but she was scared to death .. and drunk. She doesn't remember much.
After all these years, she decides that she will put together a podcast and re-interviewing everyone who knew Gina at that time. Gina's abduction has never been solved and Kai ...more

Holy hell was this book good. Her Last Word was just as suspenseful and captivating as I knew it would be. Mary Burton is one of my favorite romantic suspense writers and she has yet to fail me. She always delivers a story so intriguing that I can't put it down, not even for a dinner break, and this book was no different.
I honestly didn't have a clue what was going on the majority of the book, even though I had my suspicions. I loved that this is author was able to ...more
This was good, a cold case that has relevant crimes happening in the now. Kaitlin had ben a witness 14 years ago to an abduction...
With so many years gone by, she re looks into the case, that hasn't ever been solved. A detective has been called to a murder to investigate, but the thing is that same murder is a young girl Kat had just interviewed...
I enjoyed this, and will look into the authors other work.
