Hey lovelies! It feels like it’s been forever since I wrote a book review for you all but I couldn’t not talk about my latest read as it was absolutely phenomenal and I think you should all go out and read it!
The Night She Died is Jenny Blackhurst’s fourth novel, I’ve read two out of her previous three books and I’ve loved both of them so I knew I had to read this one! I’m going to start ‘The Foster Child’ the only novel I haven’t read as soon as possible. Jenny writes fabulous psychological thrillers that are full of plot twists and always leave you guessing until the very end!
On her own wedding night, beautiful and complicated Evie White leaps off a cliff to her death.
What drove her to commit this terrible act? It’s left to her best friend and her husband to unravel the sinister mystery.
Following a twisted trail of clues leading to Evie’s darkest secrets, they begin to realize they never knew the real Evie at all.
The Night She Died opens with Evie standing on the edge of the cliff in her wedding dress about to throw herself off it into the water below. From the very beginning it keeps you guessing, why would anyone want to commit suicide on their wedding night?!
The novel then switches between Evie’s perspective giving us a glimpse into her life as a young child and her troubled home, her teenage years and eventually her time at university where she meets Rebecca, her best friend and the person whose perspective we see the other half of the book from.
There are a few short chapters from other people’s perspectives but it mainly switches between Evie and Rebecca showing us their life together and what has led Evie to commit such a terrible act on her wedding day.
Jenny Blackhurst writes such gripping novels! Only four chapters in Rebecca receives a Facebook friend request from Evie, but surely that can’t be possible because she’s dead, so who is trying to mess with her? Obviously being Evie’s best friend, Rebecca knows more than most people about her death and is trying to decide what she should tell everyone, especially when the police come asking questions, honestly I couldn’t wait to find out what she knew!
This book kept me on the edge of my seat until the very end and I read it in two sittings because I just had to know the truth! Like seriously I was up at 6.30am on a Saturday morning and instead of going back to sleep I decided to spend three hours lying in bed finishing this!
I have to admit I did guess one of the plot twists as the novel progressed but nothing could have prepared me for them all! It was such a rollercoaster journey throughout the story and I enjoyed every second of it! 5∗ to Jenny Blackhurst for writing another amazing story, I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next!
If you like thriller novels then I strongly recommend you go and read one of Jenny’s books, The Night She Died is currently 99p on Amazon Kindle so you really can’t go wrong!
