Date Night by Samantha Hayes – review.


Returning early from a disastrous date night with my husband, I know something is wrong the moment the wheels crunch the gravel drive of our home. Inside, the TV is on and a half-eaten meal waits on the table. My heart stops when I find our little girl is alone in the house and our babysitter, Sasha, is missing…

Days later, when I’m arrested for Sasha’s murder and torn away from my perfect little family, I’ll wish I had told someone about the threatening note I received that morning.

I’ll hate myself for not finding out who the gift hidden inside my husband’s wardrobe was for.

I’ll scream from the rooftops that I’m innocent – but no one will listen.

I will realise I was completely wrong about everything that happened that night…

But will you believe me?

My thoughts

Date Night – where do I start? I seriously couldn’t put this book down. Libby’s character had me intrigued from the off. Immediately plunged into her surreal situation, I felt my heart skipping a few beats as Libby’s nightmare unfolded.

I absolutely loved how the truth unravelled throughout this novel and I certainly had no idea who could be trusted. What a mystery! And the ending… I didn’t expect that at all. What a ride.

The full cast of characters all came across as suspicious, with jealousy being a central theme throughout. Everyone was under suspicion at some point which forced me to devour the pages at speed. I simply had to know what was going on.

If you love a gripping psychological thriller with lashings of mystery, then check this one out.
