Description

Their baby was supposed to be mine....

No relationship is perfect. But since the birth of baby Mabel seven months ago, Amber and George have been in desperate need of a night away. Mabel is all that Amber has ever wanted, but she can’t deny that sometimes she struggles to cope. George has booked them into a luxury hotel, and Amber’s sister is babysitting. Yet just as they are ready to leave, Amber can’t suppress a feeling of worry....

Amber is right to be anxious. Because as she and George sip cocktails at the hotel bar, what she doesn’t know is that her little girl is in terrible danger. Somebody has been following her every move, taking note of her habits. Somebody who desperately wants a child of their own. Somebody who believes that Mabel is supposed to be theirs.

When Amber’s sister reports that Mabel’s crib is empty, Amber’s world implodes. She knows that if her baby is not found, she will never forgive her sister.

But Amber also has a secret, hidden from those she loves. Is the only person who knows the truth out to make her pay? Amber will do whatever it takes to get her daughter back...but could her lies have put her little girl at risk?

A truly gripping psychological thriller of manipulation and betrayal from best-selling author Jess Ryder. The Night Away will have you hooked until the final devastating revelation. Perfect for fans of The Girl on the Train or The Woman in the Window.

Good plot but drags on a bit

This novel had a lot of potential IF it moved a bit faster. There was way to much description of unnecessary things like where they put down a glass etc. It seemed like there was a maximum quota to fill. At times I felt like skipping just to get on with it. The end wrapped up so fast where we actually wanted to know what happened. Also not all of us know “British” terminology.. maybe explain words like “snog” or “sod”.

4.5 Stars!

THE NIGHT AWAY was a fast-paced psychological thriller with many twists and turns.

Yes, it only takes one night to destroy a family and this book is EXHIBIT A. Author Jess Ryder did an excellent job pacing the storyline and developing an intriguing plot with compelling characters. Although most of the characters were not very likable (with the exception of younger sister Ruby), I really felt like I knew each character's pains/challenges and understood where they were coming from.

Also notable was the author's decision to unfold the storyline with multiple POVs from the main characters. Sometimes using this strategy makes a book difficult to follow but this author made it work.

The book's narration was superb.

This book's ending is why this book did not earn a 5-star review from me. The ending was abrupt, contrived, and borderline disjointed. I felt like the author lost steam in the last stretch (been there, done that!) and this was disappointing.

This was my first Jess Ryder book and I will certainly be looking forward to enjoying this writer's future books.

Solid Thriller- Title Is Deceiving

The Night Away was a fairly good read and I enjoyed it. I wish that the title of the book were different, because I think it sort of throws off the reader/listener. There is indeed a night away where the main couple in the book go for a mini break but it seems really minor and not important to the story.

The book is about a baby being kidnapped while sister babysits for an exhausted couple. It's fairly fast paced, but the characters aren't the most likable, and the story itself is a bit underwhelming yet still, a solid psychological thriller.

Enjoyed it

Listened to this nonstop over a period of a day and a half while doing this and that so I would have to back it up to make sure I didn’t miss anything. And then finally when everything was done I finally got to go though it straight on. I liked it. I liked the twists and the sisters getting along and the caring and I appreciate the author going easy on the cuss words and no sex scenes. It was awesome! I want a good story not a book on sex and cussing. So thank you. Just I don’t get it as to why is the cuss word always Jesus’ name? When I was a nasty cusser I cussed a lot. But never Gods name or Jesus’ name. I just don’t get that one. Anyhow I like how all the characters ended up having their own story behind the story. This is my first book by her. Hope others follow same pattern.

Loved it - not a dull moment

I loved this book. Totally engrossing - the tension was steady throughout… finished it in less than 24 hours 😬. I’m going to try out the author’s book that’s previewed at the end of this one (I think it’s called The Ex-wife) ASAP because even though the book is done, I am not.

This should be called The Waste Of A Night

I can’t believe that this inane book got any positive reviews. What a waste of a credit and my time. I held out thinking it was going to get better- it did not.

Kept my interest.

I gave it 5 stars because I never lost interest for a moment and listened every free minute till the end. If you enjoy domestic drama then read this one. I do and enjoyed it very much.
