Rating – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
The Night Away by Jess Ryder is an outstanding thriller that had me anticipating every page.
Amber is so absorbed with her life and her baby that she’s totally unaware that someone is watching and waiting. Now baby Mabel is missing and the police are stumped. Was it a stranger or someone closer to home? Is it related to the secret Amber is keeping or just happenstance?
Jess Ryder has done a superb job with this mystery/thriller. The characters are believable, if not all likable. The story is told through the alternating viewpoints of Amber, her sister, Ruby, and the abductor but is easy to follow. I was instantly and continually intrigued. Secrets and betrayals abound. The plot smartly twists, then turns and ends dramatically. The Night Away rates 5 out of 5 stars and will appeal to all readers of psychological thrillers.
My thanks to Bookouture and NetGalley for the opportunity to read an advance copy of this book. However, the opinions expressed in this review are 100% mine and mine alone.
