The Birthday Girl by Sue Fortin

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?

It has been a while since a book has caught me off guard quite as many times as this one did. This is full of twists and turns and the rug was pulled from under me so many times I struggled to keep track.

I didn’t particularly like any of the characters. They were all pretty bitchy and horrible to each other despite claiming they’re friends. However that seemed to add to my enjoyment of the book. The narrator Carys was quite an unreliable narrator, as you only really saw things from her perspective.

I enjoyed the fact that secrets were interspersed throughout. One minute you find out one thing about one of the characters and then everything is spun on its head again. The narrative itself is a little far fetched, but in all seriousness who needs a realistic storyline when a story is this exciting!

If you’re interested in a story that will constantly leave you on edge and trying to second guess what will happen, this is definitely for you!
