Mini Reviews: The Night Before by Wendy Walker and Her Last Secret by Barbara Copperthwaite

The Night Before by Wendy Walker


The Night Before is an engaging, psychological mystery, though to be honest, I feel it will be quite forgettable for me as well. I was intrigued as I read it, but even as I write this review, details have grown hazy. I didn't really connect with the characters and the ending didn't surprise me as much as I hoped it would. That being said, it was well written and not boring. I would definitely read this author again int he future. Thanks to Netgalley for supplying me with a copy of The Night Before in exchange for an honest review.

Her Last Secret by Barbara Copperthwaite


Sometimes multiple POVs and time jumps work, and sometimes they don't. Her Last Secret falls somewhere in between. I was engaged, though not gripped by a story that, given its premise, should have been a real page turner. I just didn't connect to any of the characters, even though there were plenty to choose from. It was an interesting story, and I did like the way the author showed a "normal" family whose members make some bad decisions and the effects of those. Overall, an entertaining read, but not really one I think will stay with me for very long, unfortunately. If you are thinking of reading this author, I would recommend The Perfect Friend over this one.
