Book review: The Date by Louise Jensen

 

IMG_7354

If you enjoy psychological thrillers you’re in for a treat with this one!

It starts off quite simply but the tension creeps up and up and the situation becomes more complex as layer upon layer of intrigue and suspense is added. It’s clear from the start when Alison wakes up the morning after her date that something has gone horribly wrong. She has no recollection of the evening, has a head injury and has developed face blindness – she’s unable to recognise even the people she knows well which makes her very vulnerable. As threatening messages appear and her best friend goes missing it’s clear someone wants her to suffer for something she’s done in the past.

The story’s told in two viewpoints – the victim and the stalker whose identity isn’t revealed until the end. It’s obviously someone who knows a lot about the victim including her real name. I had to keep reading Β to find out what what Ali had done and why the stalker was out for vengeance. To be honest I wasn’t convinced by everything that happened but I think you have to be prepared to suspend some disbelief and just go with it in order to enjoy this story to the max.

I can’t wait to see what Louise Jensen comes up with next.

This book will be published on June 21st. I received a copy from the publisher via Netgalley with no obligation to review.
