The Night Before by Wendy Walker

If you’ve been following my posts for awhile, you will know that I’ve enjoyed books by Wendy Walker in the past (ie. Emma in the Night). Once I saw this book was going to be realeased, I had to jump on it!

Thank you St Martin’s Press for sending me a copy in exchange for my honest review.

Laura has been through a lot in her lifetime. She has just recently broken up with a boyfriend and moved in with her sister Rosie. To get back into the game, she decides to go on a date with a guy she met online, borrow her sister’s dress and car, and head out on the town to make an impression and move on from the past. 4 am comes around, and Laura is no where to be found. Rosie is starting to freak out and enlists the help of her husband and a long time family friend. What happend to Laura? Is she safe? Better yet, did Laura do something that she’s going to regret? The past is coming back to haunt her, and it’s not looking good…

The book was a little slow to start, but the last 30% of it made my head spin in all different ways. WOW. What a wild ride this book was! I went into it completely blind (meaning I did not read any synopsis of the book beforehand) and I really loved doing that. I really enjoyed the fact that you were reading about the entire night as it was happening (in Laura’s point of view) and also reading it after the fact (in Rosie’s point of view as she was trying to find out what happened to her sister) all at the same time.  There are multiple twists in the end that I didn’t see coming. I couldn’t quite wrap my head around what was happening as I was reading it. One reveal lead to another, and my husband caught me screaming out loud in amazement. That, my friends, is when you know it’s a fun book to read.

4.5/5 Stars
