Today I am reviewing on its publication day The Woman on the Pier by B.P Walter, published by One More Chapter.
Two strangers meet on the pier…Only one walks away…
Screenwriter Caroline Byrne is desperate to know why her daughter Jessica died, murdered in Stratford when she was supposed to be at a friend’s in Somerset.
When Caroline discovers the messages Jessica had been sending a boy named Michael, she realises it’s because of him. Because he failed to meet her that day.
He’s the reason why her daughter is dead.
And so she makes a choice. He’s the one who’s going to pay.
That is her promise. Her price.
Set between Essex, Kent, and Australia, The Woman on the Pier is a dark suspense thriller brimming with secrets and lies seeping across three generations – a must-read for fans of Lucy Foley and Rosamund Lupton.
A heart wrenching tale of loss and grief, The Woman on the Pier is a dark story that will get under your skin and will stay there long after you have read that final page. At times it can be quite overwhelming, as it deals with some hard hitting themes of abuse, both domestic and verbal, addiction, self harming and terrorism, which could be triggers for some readers. B.P. Walter does a great job of drawing the reader in with well written and engaging prose, which had me flicking the pages long into the night. All round this is a tough read, but one that is well worth reading.
Thank you to B.P. Walter, One More Chapter and NetGalley for allowing me to read an advanced copy of The Woman on the Pier, which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
This review will be added to, Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Amazon Australia & Amazon US. I will also add to NetGalley, Apple Books, Kobo, Google Play and Barnes & Noble if available. As I am from Australia, I am unable to add to Amazon UK, but will post to Waterstones & Foyles if also available.
