The gripping, unputdownable new thriller from the Sunday Times bestselling author of The Loving Husband
Your best friend will always be there for you…won’t she?
Have you ever had that sense that you’re being watched? And you turn, suddenly, but it’s just a curtain, blowing in the wind? Or the dress hanging in the doorway? Nat knows something’s wrong. Her best friend, Beth, would never have upped and left without saying goodbye to her. But no one believes that Beth was taken – she is a fly-by-night, a party girl who can’t be trusted. No one’s listening to Nat. But someone is definitely watching her.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I did enjoy The Day She Disappeared by Christobel Kent but it did take me quite a while to really get into it, I would say I was about 30% in before I started to zone out.By this I mean when I am reading if I find a book good, I go almost into a book coma, unaware of anything else, I’m sure you get my drift. we’ve all been there.
So I’m gonna break it down into what worked for me and what I struggled with, but be aware this is just my personal opinion and what I struggled with may not bother you at all.
First of all, this was my first toe-dip into Christobel Kent’s work, it was the story description that initially drew me to this book, I found it very intriguing.
As I said, I had difficulty at first connecting with the story. If I had to pinpoint what it was that caused this I think maybe I found the writing style quite hard to follow and as I was concentrating on deciphering the language and my brain failed to engage with the story properly.
The story follows Nat as she tries to decipher what has happened to her friend Beth.
Once I became engrossed in the story my mind was working overtime suspecting everyone.
You are kept guessing until the end and I never did work out who the killer was, so it came as I surprise, which in my opinion is a sign of a good murder mystery.
I also liked how we were allowed to creep into the killer’s head, seeing the facts from his point of view while still being kept in the dark over his identity.
So, in conclusion, this is a great intriguing read, It’s interesting and well paced with great world-building it just took me a small while to get my head into the game.
I received an E-Copy of The Day She Disappeared By Christobel Kent and this is my own honest opinion.
