What You Did | Claire McGowan
'A brilliant, breathless thriller that kept me guessing to the last shocking page'--Erin Kelly, Sunday Times bestselling author of He Said/She Said A vicious assault. A devastating accusation. Who should she trust, her husband or her best friend? It was supposed to be the perfect reunion: six university friends together again after twenty years. Host Ali finally has the life she always wanted, a career she can be proud of and a wonderful family with her college boyfriend, now husband. But that night her best friend makes an accusation so shocking that nothing will ever be the same again. When Karen staggers in from the garden, bleeding and traumatised, she claims that she has been assaulted--by Ali's husband, Mike. Ali must make a split-second decision: who should she believe? Her horrified husband, or her best friend? With Mike offering a very different version of events, Ali knows one of them is lying--but which? And why? When the ensuing chaos forces her to re-examine the golden era the group shared at university, Ali realises there are darker memories too. Memories that have lain dormant for decades. Memories someone would kill to protect.

Wow. I am a pretty critical reader, and I am 100% hooked. I am surprised by how many so-so reviews and crits. I am wondering if a book being a free kindle read makes people more skeptical judges. What do you think??? Honest question. Looking forward to candid answers. Xo (pic is me and one of my daughters. Meant to be neutral. :))

This thriller was a bit hit or miss for me. The premise was really intriguing but there were aspects that just didn‘t work. Still very readable though! Full review on my blog now!

I received this e-arc through Netgalley. My review is my own honest opinion.

This book catches you from the beginning and you never guess the ending. It was a pretty good book.

Pros: Fast paced, interesting plot, a few twists and turns, Kindle sale purchase

Cons: Tried too hard to be politically correct, characters not fully developed, unlikeable narrator

Trigger warning: sexual assault

Ali gets her old college friends get together and then one of them is raped. Even worse, Karen says Ali‘s husband Mike did it. Secrets unfold, and relationships are tested. While it was predictable in places, it was well done enough to keep me reading. Plenty of tension between the characters, the backstory was revealed in flashbacks, and multiple narrators helped move things along. A fast and easy read.

4/5 ⭐️

This one kept me entertained. Parts were pretty predictable but finding one that isn‘t is rare. 🤷🏼‍♀️ I was interested in the moral dilemmas the main character dealt with and I thought she acted pretty realistically. #mystery #bfc #augustreads #suspense

Two more miles this morning. I might need to go on another walk this evening so I can finish this book! It‘s really starting to pick up. I tend to get more engrossed in audiobooks that I listen to while walking/running. I‘m able to focus on the story more without interruptions. #audiobook #mystery #bfc

A group of college friends get together at one person's home after years. The hosts best friend accuses her husband of rape and their world falls into chaos. I couldn't tell you how deep the dive into the chaos it was because I couldn't get past the first 30 pages. There's nothing original about this story. The characters are bland and some of the drama (pregnancy, old affairs) thrown into the mix fell short. I'm good ✌️ #teamsleep for #whatyoudid
