The Birthday Girl by Sue Fortin Review

The first page of the book got me hooked! It starts with "the bad guy" writing about how they planned the whole friend’s weekend to get their revenge. I love that we get a sneak peek every once in a while, about "the bad guy" side of the story.

I loved the writing and the description of the surrounding. The woods, the fog, the rain, etc. Sue Fortin really paints an amazing portrait! There are a lot of things going on in this book, many story lines but it keeps you on your toes and you think you know what's coming, but nope! This book is highly unpredictable, and I was thoroughly surprised! It was a slow start reading wise for me and I think I read 250 pages in one day towards the end. I couldn't' put it down.

One thing I didn't enjoy was the characters. I don't think there is one character I really liked or rooted for. Still a great story though!

Thank you to Harper Impulse for providing me with an electronic ARC of this book via Edelweiss. As usual, my reviews are my honest and unbiased opinions.

Dear Carys, Zoe and Andrea
Come and join me for my fortieth birthday adventure weekend, full of mysteries and surprises the like of which you can’t imagine.

When Joanne’s friends reluctantly accept an invitation to her birthday party, it quickly becomes clear that there is more to this weekend than they are expecting.
One of them is hiding a secret.
And Joanne is planning to reveal it…

A weekend away in a cottage in the woods sounds like fun – until no one can hear your cries for help.

Four friends.
A party to die for.

Who will survive?
