It was just a party. But it turned into a nightmare.
When Rachel wakes up in a strange room, the morning after a neighbour’s party, she has no memory of what happened the night before. Why did her husband leave her alone at the party? Did they row? Why are Rachel’s arms so bruised? And why are her neighbours and friends so vague about what really happened?
Little by little, Rachel pieces together the devastating events that took place in a friend’s house, at a party where she should have been safe. Everyone remembers what happened that night differently, and everyone has something to hide. But someone knows the truth about what happened to Rachel. And she’s determined to find them.
The Party is the gripping new novel from bestseller Lisa Hall.
The Party is the authors third book and another dark and gripping read.
Rachel is married to Gareth and they have a teenage son Robbie. We first meet Rachel when she wakes up in a bed in her next doors neighbours house. Obviously alarm bells start ringing as she doesn’t remember anything other than arriving at the house and the fact that she only lives next door, why she would be waking up in their house?
Obviously the reader is just as intrigued as to what has happened also. I think due to the nature of the story some readers may find it uncomfortable or upsetting to read. The story focuses though on the who and why and it makes for a page turner of a read.
The author weaves a twisted tale pointing us in different directions making us second guess who it could be. I kept swapping my mind as to who it could be and have to say when we do get to find out, well I didn’t see that coming!
The Party is a story that will have you hooked throughout. The tension and suspense builds throughout and will certainly keep you on your toes. Fans of the author certainly won’t be disappointed.
My thanks to HQ and NetGalley for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
