    Interesting take on the thriller

    I struggled to get into this book, finding the changing characters and different timelines confusing at the beginning. While it was an interesting read, and I thought that Ruth was a compelling central character, for me the book suffered from too many points of view and not enough focus. Particularly, I struggled to connect to Kat and would have preferred more time developing Ruth and her relationships. Joined the closure of George's story-line but overall found the ending to be abrupt. Thank you to @Netgalley and the publishers for a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    A great read

    It is never a good thing to dwell on past relationships that your partner had before you. This is the case for Alice, when she see’s a girl on the train who bears a remarkable resemblance to her husband George’s ex girlfriend Ruth, who he dated in his first year at St Anthony’s University. This shouldn’t make Alice upset right? Wrong! The issue is that Ruth mysteriously disappeared whist they were at university, believed to be dead when seen swimming in the ocean on the night she disappeared. But with no body, the mystery of what really happened to Ruth becomes an obsession for Alice. When George receives a post card with the words “Give what I’ve lost back to me” Alice becomes concerned that George may have been involved in Ruth’s disappearance all of those years ago. With a reputation as a ladies man with a colourful past, could George be responsible? When Alice becomes pregnant her obsession grows and not willing to let the issue lie, Alice makes contact with Naomi, Ruth’s younger sister in the hope that the both of them can solve the mystery of what really happened to Ruth the night she disappeared. But the closer Alice gets to finding out the truth, her life and the life of her unborn child could be in danger! Do I recommend this book: Yes! I really enjoyed this book. It was a slow burn that picked up full steam ahead with many twists and turns in the lead up to a heart pounding conclusion. Told in the perspective of multiple characters going from the past to the present day, we are given an insight into Ruth’s life in the lead up to her disappearance, and how any one of these characters could be responsible. This is the first book I have read of Nicola’s. I liked her writing style and her ability to make you feel certain emotions related to each character. I detested the character of George, felt the pain of Naomi’s loss, and determination from Alice in finding out the truth no matter the consequences in doing so. I look forward of reading more of Nicola’s work. Thank-you to Netgalley, Avon Books and Nicola Rayner for allowing me to read an advanced copy of The Girl Before You in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own and are not biased in anyway

    Loved it,but not the ending

    It was a great story but it had a disappointing ending, yes we know that Ruth is alive but what will happen to George and all the other characters when as a reader you invested in these characters you want more conclusions more of a definate ending its not for us to conclud the story too many authors finish this way and its disappointing.......not the review you were expecting.
