Her Last Day (Jessie Cole, #1)Her Last Day by T.R. Ragan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

4.5 rounded up

I read Her Last Day with Kaceey and we read this one mostly in one day. Once we started reading this one, we couldn’t put it done until we found out more about “her last day.”

Her Last Day is a fast-paced, gripping, intense and creepy disturbing psychological thriller that started off a little bumpy for us with the psychological torture used here by the Heartless Killer yet we couldn’t stop reading as we were pulled into the other mysteries here within the story.

T.R Ragan does a fantastic job creating some intriguing, likable characters here that had us engaged in their stories right from the start. We hear from a few different POV’s with each bringing their own distinct voice and mystery to the story. The Heartless Killer’s voice left us feeling chilled and pushed us a little out of our comfort zone with the chilling and disturbing ways he used psychological torture but still left us turning the pages as fast as we could.

There are three mysteries going on here and we found all three interesting and we thought T.R. Ragan did a great job weaving them all together for a startling and satisfying ending. We will be looking out for the second one in this series. We highly recommend.

Thank you To NetGalley, Thomas & Mercer and T.R. Ragan for a copy to read and review.


Kaceey’s Review


A full-blown, chilling thriller that will keep you burning through the pages!

There are so many layers to this book. Three seemingly different storylines happening simultaneously, as they wove their through each other’s lives. Becoming intertwined for an incredible finale.

Jessie Cole is a private investigator raising her 14 year old niece Olivia, ever since Olivia’s mother Sophie disappeared 10 years ago. As Jessie starts believing she’ll never find answers to her sister’s disappearance, in walks a reporter who states he may have known Sophie. Well, well, well!

Ben is happily married, a reporter for the local Sacramento newspaper. When he sees a cold case TV show featuring the disappearance of Sophie Cole, he instantly recognizes her and hopes to do a feature story on her. The wrinkle? He was left with retrograde amnesia from a car accident 10 years ago. With absolute no memory of anything prior to the crash. So how exactly could he recognize Sophie?

Colin, a Sacramento detective and close ‘friend’ of Jessie, is knee-deep in a ruthless, serial killer case, being dubbed The Heartless Killer. He’s racing against time to find the killer, as more victims are piling up.

So fast and twisty, this book came together at breakneck speed!

We basically read this book in just a few sittings. When I wasn’t reading it, I couldn’t stop thinking about it. All the storylines and all the characters came together brilliantly. With just the right amount of creepiness, I needed to read this with the lights on! (Bright!) Exceeded my expectations. Highly recommend!

This is book one in a new series for T.R. Ragan.  Before I reached the last page I was already searching out the release date for book 2 – Deadly Recall due out Mach 27th 2018

Thank you To NetGalley, Thomas & Mercer and T.R. Ragan for an ARC to read in exchange for an honest review.
