Riveting and compulsive, national bestselling author Wendy Walker's The Night Before "takes you to deep, dark places few thrillers dare to go" as two sisters uncover long-buried secrets when an internet date spirals out of control.
Laura Lochner has never been lucky in love. She falls too hard and too fast, always choosing the wrong men. Devastated by the end of her last relationship, she fled her Wall Street job and New York City apartment for her sister's home in the Connecticut suburb where they both grew up. Though still haunted by the tragedy that's defined her entire life, Laura is determined to take one more chance on love with a man she's met on an Internet dating site.
Rosie Ferro has spent most of her life worrying about her troubled sister. Fearless but fragile, Laura has always walked an emotional tightrope, and Rosie has always been there to catch her. Laura's return, under mysterious circumstances, has cast a shadow over Rosie's peaceful life with her husband and young son - a shadow that grows darker as Laura leaves the house for her blind date.
When Laura does not return home the following morning, Rosie fears the worst. She's not responding to calls or texts, and she's left no information about the man she planned to meet. As Rosie begins a desperate search to find her sister, she is not just worried about what this man might have done to Laura. She's worried about what Laura may have done to him...
Praise for The Night Before:
'Wendy Walker proves her ingenuity with her latest hair-raising chiller. Teeming with taut writing, an abundance of jaw-dropping revelations, and Walker's uncanny insight into the dark side of human nature, The Night Before is irresistible.' - Mary Kubica, bestselling author of The Good Girl
'Pulse-pounding action makes you race to the finish of this addictive thriller...The writing sings, and the twists deliver.' - Liv Constantine, bestselling author of The Last Mrs. Parrish

    I went into this book with kind of low expectations, probably partly because it’s an author I’ve never heard of before and there are SO many supposedly twisty thrillers out there nowadays. But maybe that’s why I enjoyed it so much, but wow! I did not want to put it down and finished it in less than 24 hours. It had excellent characters with believable, fleshed out backstories. I feel like I know them and what they went through despite it not being a long book. There are also so many layers to this plot! From what happened with Laura and her boyfriend in the woods when they were teenagers to Laura being missing present day to what actually happened the night before and so much more. And yet it all WORKED. It was so cohesive and I couldn’t wait to see what would be revealed next. The ending was really good. I didn’t really have any theories throughout but the twist was definitely a whoa didn’t see that coming moment. It was twisty without being unrealistic. The last few chapters really had me at the edge of my seat! After this I’m definitely interested in anything else Wendy Walker writes. Very very happy I won this book! I’d give it a solid 4 1/2 stars.
