Rosie Ferro and Laura Heart are sisters, but as different as it is possible to be. One is lucky in love and has a conventional family: a husband, and a small son. The other has a troubled past she is still struggling to break free from.
When Laura disappears after going on a date with a stranger she met online, Rosie, her protector since they were young, springs into action to look for her. But as she slowly uncovers more about the situation, Rosie begins to fear that her sister might have been more of a danger than the man she went out with.
Told in duel timelines – the night of and the night before, Wendy Walker’s new novel is a riveting examination of family loyalty, obsession, and how just how far we will go for love.
I love the way Wendy Walker writes and the cleverly obfuscated way she plots, The Night Before was an excellent page turner, where the usual lines are slightly blurred.
Laura is missing after leaving for a date, Rosie her sister is desperate to find her…But who is Rosie most worried for? Her sister or the man her sister went to meet…
It was refreshingly honest in its narrative about human nature and how dangerous we can be.. as men or women..that plus an intelligent mystery element made The Night Before a really engaging read.
I read it fast and whilst not surprised by the “bad guy” reveal, did not feel this took away from the enjoyment of the story, this had many levels all of them compelling.
