The Date by Louise Jensen


This has to be a nightmare.


The Date by Louise Jensen is an exceptionally scary thriller, I haven’t been this spooked by a book in a long time. 

Fear beats its wings.


Totally unpredictable,  the horrifying twists kept coming.


My bones turn to dust and I sink to the floor.


I loved this book which kept me captivated. Until the ending, which was disappointingly weak in comparison.

Something bad has happened to Alison Taylor. 

Her Saturday night started normally. Recently separated from her husband, Ali has been persuaded by her friends to go on a date with a new man. She is ready, she is nervous, she is excited. She is about to take a step into her new future. 

By Sunday morning, Ali’s life is unrecognisable. She wakes, and she knows that something is wrong. She is home, she is alone, she is hurt and she has no memory of what happened to her. 

Worse still, when she looks in the mirror, Ali doesn’t recognise the face staring back at her. She can’t recognise her friends and family. And she can’t recognise the person who is trying to destroy her…  — Abstract from Goodreads.com

The fact that I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book does not influence my policy to write an honest review.
