|Blog Tour| The Birthday Weekend by Lesley Sanderson

Author: Lesley Sanderson

Publication Date: December 18, 2020

Dear Louise. It’s time we all put the past behind us. We’re meeting for my birthday. I want you there. Love, Amy. X
When Louise receives an invitation to her old friend Amy’s birthday weekend in a cottage next to the woods near their old university campus, a chill runs down her spine.
Fifteen years ago, Hannah walked into those same woods and never came back. Her death destroyed her friends. They’ve not met as a group since. Until now.
As the party gets underway and old grudges are uncovered, a game of truth or dare is proposed. It’s clear one person has questions about their friend’s death – and now they want answers. And nothing will stop them.
When everyone has buried secrets, digging for the truth is going to get dangerous.

This book grabbed my attention from the very start and held it to the very end, this is my first time reading from this author and have to say it won’t be the last.

I found they wasn’t a lot of twist and turns in this book and found it to be more of a slow burn and found it predictable but enjoyable. I’m interest picked up more in the second half of the book but found the ending a little rushed. I was very intrigued to keep reading and how how the plot and story planned out.

Thanks to netgalley and bookouture for allowing me to read and review and be apart of the blog tour.

Lesley attended the Curtis Brown Creative 6 month novel writing course in 2015/6, and in 2017 The Orchid Girls (then On The Edge) was shortlisted for the Lucy Cavendish fiction prize.

  1. I am a big fan of psychological thrillers and The Birthday Weekend by Lesley Sanderson sounds like a good one. However the rushed ending could put me off. I’m fine with predictable but I do like the endings to round things up properly.
