What She Saw Last Night
Jenny Bowen is going home. Boarding the Caledonian Sleeper, all she wants to do is forget about her upcoming divorce and relax on the ten-hour journey through the night.
In her search for her cabin, Jenny helps a panicked woman with a young girl she assumes to be her daughter. Then she finds her compartment and falls straight to sleep.
Waking in the night, Jenny discovers the woman dead in her cabin….but there’s no sign of the little girl. The train company have no record of a child being booked on the train, and CCTV shows the dead woman boarding alone.
The police don’t believe Jenny, and soon she tries to put the incident out of her head and tells herself that everyone else is right: she must have imagined the little girl.
But deep down, she know that isn’t the truth.
Today is my stop on the What She Saw Last Night blog tour thanks to Tracy Fenton at Compulsive Readers, MJ Cross and Orion books.
As many of you will know by now I am very much a rom-com/chick-lit type of girl but every now and then I like to dip into something else. I have heard many good things about MJ Cross’ (Mason Cross) work and when this tour came up it caught my interest.
I really enjoyed this book. I was hooked right from the start and all the twists and turns the story took I was very reluctant to put the book down, I just wanted to know what would happen next.
What I enjoyed most about this book was the fast pace. The story was continually moving and you were always left guessing what would happen next. There were a couple of points where I thought things were starting to get a bit farfetched but it didn’t take away from this book at all.
The characters were great and very believable and well-rounded. Each of the characters roles were important and essential to the story and the way the viewpoint changed between a few of the characters, mainly the female protagonist, Jenny, and police officer Mike, moved the story along quickly.
This was a great crime/mystery novel. It’s available now so make sure you check it out!
