Libby Hall never really wanted to be noticed. But after she saves the children in her care from a fire, she finds herself headline news. And horrified by the attention. It all reminds her of what happened nine years ago. The last time she saw her best friend alive.
Which is why the house swap is such a godsend. Libby and her husband Jamie exchange their flat in Bath for a beautiful, secluded house in Cornwall. It’s a chance to heal their marriage – to stop its secrets tearing them apart.
But this stylish Cornish home isn’t the getaway they’d hoped for. They make odd, even disturbing, discoveries in the house. It’s so isolated-yet Libby doesn’t feel entirely alone. As if she’s being watched.
Is Libby being paranoid? What is her husband hiding? And. As the secrets and lies come tumbling out, is the past about to catch up with them?

Last Seen Alive is much more than a house swap novel. Actually, I found the house swap the most boring part of the novel. There was so much packed into this novel that it was hard to tell what the focus was on.
The novel alternates between the current day and some events that happened quite a numbers of years ago. I really enjoyed both stories and was totally surprised on what happened in the novel. Again there is so much more than the house swap.
3 calculators out of a potential 5. I enjoyed the novel, but found a few boring parts. It was a fun read and there was a lot of things that I didn’t see coming!
