Today I am helping to kick off the blog your for What She Saw Last Night. MJ Cross is a new author to me and I was keen to get stuck in and see if the book was as good as the blurb indicated.
I loved reading this book, it was a story that took twists and turns and kept me guessing as to what was going to happen next throughout. I loved the sleeper train where the story kicked off and it added a totally different spin on the who done it scenario. This book reminded me of Cluedo just set on a sleeper train. Throughout this book I was looking for clues and second guessing as to what was unfolding on each page.
A story that had me hooked from the first few pages and kept me hooked throughout, I love finding a new author and this book did not disappoint and I look forward to reading more from MJ Cross in the future.
No one will believe … WHAT SHE SAW LAST NIGHT.
Jenny Bowen is going home. Boarding the Caledonian Sleeper, all she wants to do is forget about her upcoming divorce and relax on the ten-hour journey through the night.
In her search for her cabin, Jenny helps a panicked woman with a young girl she assumes to be her daughter. Then she finds her compartment and falls straight to sleep.
Waking in the night, Jenny discovers the woman dead in her cabin … but there’s no sign of the little girl. The train company have no record of a child being booked on the train, and CCTV shows the dead woman boarding alone.
The police don’t believe Jenny, and soon she tries to put the incident out of her head and tells herself that everyone else is right: she must have imagined the little girl.
But deep down, she knows that isn’t the truth.
