The Birthday Girl - by Sue Fortin

Original Cover
My own copy

The blurb:

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?

My Opinion:

*Book provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review*

It’s actually Sue Fortin’s fault, I got into psychological thrillers. Her book Sister Sister is one of my fave books this year, so naturally I really wanted to read this.

This story has a very mysterious start, which got me all excited and hooked. Carys, Zoe and Andrea get invitation for a weekend away from their friend Joanne. A lot of mystery is surrounding this letter and the women are not sure what to think. The weekend is full of surprises and one of the ladies is hiding a secret. It’s also clear that a lot is connected to their past. It was very interesting finding out more and more about their lives and their connections to each other.

The book is full of twists and turns and lies add a lot to the tension as well. I was hooked from the start and couldn’t put the book down. It’s a real page turner and very intense. You really don’t know in what direction it’s going and Sue Fortin’s writing is on point. Every detail is right and the storyline is so gripping.
