First dates can be murder.
Riveting and compulsive, national bestselling author Wendy Walker’s The Night Before “takes you to deep, dark places few thrillers dare to go” as two sisters uncover long-buried secrets when an internet date spirals out of control.
Laura Lochner has never been lucky in love. She falls too hard and too fast, always choosing the wrong men. Devastated by the end of her last relationship, she fled her Wall Street job and New York City apartment for her sister’s home in the Connecticut suburb where they both grew up. Though still haunted by the tragedy that’s defined her entire life, Laura is determined to take one more chance on love with a man she’s met on an Internet dating site.
Rosie Ferro has spent most of her life worrying about her troubled sister. Fearless but fragile, Laura has always walked an emotional tightrope, and Rosie has always been there to catch her. Laura’s return, under mysterious circumstances, has cast a shadow over Rosie’s peaceful life with her husband and young son – a shadow that grows darker as Laura leaves the house for her blind date.
When Laura does not return home the following morning, Rosie fears the worst. She’s not responding to calls or texts, and she’s left no information about the man she planned to meet. As Rosie begins a desperate search to find her sister, she is not just worried about what this man might have done to Laura. She’s worried about what Laura may have done to him…
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Author/Publisher and was under no obligation to post a review, positive or negative.
I can’t begin to sing high enough praises for Wendy Walker and her book. I am a contemporary romance lover but what I love just as much (sometimes more!) is a wonderfully written, edge-of-your-seat, late into the night physchological thiller. Wendy Walker’s novel is all of that and so much more! The intensity of the story is epic, bringing a past to clash with a present and creating a heart pounding, unforgettable roller coaster ride.
Don’t think that this one will be an easy one to figure you. It’s full of twists and turns, and amazingly chiseled characters, and it kept me up way past my bedtime trying to figure out the whos and the whys and the hows. Just when I thought I had Laura’s story figured out about her past,Walker hit me something new and bam! I had to rethink and try to figure it out in a new way. That’s amazing talent!
I won’t get into a lot of detail because if I do tell you more about Laura and her story, I might spoil it! So, what I will tell you is this: go get a copy of this novel now. It will keep you guessing, you’ll be cussing at the book because what you think you know about it…..you won’t really know. It’s definitely a keeper and worthy of high praises! But be warned! Once you start this, you will not be able to put it down, you will lose sleep, and you’ll absolutely be wanting another novel yesterday!
