Today I am taking part in the books on tour and reviewing on its publication day The Night of the Party by Anna-Lou Weatherley, published by Bookouture.

Book Description

Two Couples. Three Secrets. One Murder.

In a beautiful house surrounded by woodland, the Drayton family and their dearest friends are enjoying dinner together. The wine is flowing, the meal has been lovingly prepared, and it’s going to be an evening none of them will ever forget…

A doting mother
with a manipulative daughter.

A loving husband
lying to his family.

A close friend
keeping a shocking secret.

A beautiful girl
who will be dead by the end of the night.

A totally unputdownable and nail-bitingly tense psychological thriller with an explosive double twist that will leave you reeling. Fans of Lisa Jewell, Gillian McAllister and Lucy Foley will be hooked on The Night of the Party.

“In the long run, the most unpleasant truth is a far safer companion than a pleasant falsehood” – Theodore Roosevelt. This quote included at the start of this book is so fitting for this story.

I’m calling it, The Night of the Party is the first book that will be part on my best books for 2022! I absolutely loved this book and devoured it in one sitting. Part of the Detective Dan Riley series, this can easily be read as a standalone, but I do encourage you to read the other fantastic books in the series so you don’t miss out!

Anna-Lou Weatherley smashes this book right out of the park! Addicted right from the outset, the pages just turned themselves. A perfectly executed and clever psychological thriller with an eclectic cast of characters with so many secrets, it has been awhile since one made my blood boil as much as one does in this book! Oh and the twists! Just brilliant and jaw dropping… OK, I have stop this review right now as in my excitement I don’t want to give anything away, but I will end this with, I take my hat off to you Anna-Lou. Well played…Very well played!
