My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This beautifully written book left me wanting more in the very best way! It was so easy to get caught up in Catherine’s day to day life & tag along with her. She is a lovely narrator & I loved her character. The author’s style of thriller writing gave me the most pleasantly suspenseful experience I’ve had with a book, & I’m so happy to have discovered it. Even though I thought I knew, I was genuinely uncertain of what really happened to Susie all the way up to the end. The ending snuck up on me so calmly I felt a hard “wait a minute!! it’s over??” that I don’t usually feel, which was fun. Even a few days after finishing, I still find myself wanting to spend more time with Catherine & come along on the rest of her journey. There were a few more intense moments, & they were just enough to knock your heart rate up a notch without crossing over into being too much. Brilliantly created & intriguing in such a refreshing way!

A mother’s love knows no bounds but as a mother, how well do you know your children? Catherine Keely’s daughter Susie died a year ago. She was on holiday with her boyfriend Daniel and some friends when she fell over a balcony. Was she drunk? Some say she was. Was she pushed? It’s pretty suspect. Catherine travels to Crete to try to get to the bottom of her daughter’s death. There are so many questions that she has. As she meets with Susie’s friends, her former boyfriend, and people who were present on the night of Susie’s death, different pictures emerge. All of them have some layer of truth to them but what really is the truth? She’s presented with ten different scenarios and the reader is challenged to choose the correct one.

This is another new-to-me author and I found her writing style to be very easy to read. She has a way of drawing the reader in to her story and not letting go even after the last words are read. This book is full of intrigue and lots of twists and turns. I hope you’ll enjoy this great little short story!

I’m on a ledge deciding which way to fall when it comes to this book. And Then She Fell was an interesting read. Although I didn’t love it, I didn’t dislike it either. This book was wonderfully written and deserves praise in this regard. The author kept me intrigued, which says a lot because I struggled at the beginning trying to get into the book. I want to be proven wrong, I made an assumption early on which is what kept me reading. But I will neither confirm or deny the outcome of that want.
Catherine is retracing the steps of her late daughter Susie. She doesn’t fully believe her death was an accident(neither do I.) She finds herself back in Crete at the hotel where it happened. She finds herself meeting up with Susie’s two friends Jessica and Sebastien, where she finds out Daniel was a controlling boyfriend. She also ends up in Daniel’s crosshairs. Despite all this she’s being stalked/threatened, somebody doesn’t want her to continue her quest. Susie was changing and she never noticed.
What kind of mom does that make her?
That’s a question she seemed to internally ask herself throughout.
I don’t trust Daniel. I also firmly believed from an early point that he pushed Susie, maybe not intentionally but it still happened. Like I said I want to be proven wrong. Controlling relationships sometimes go too far, unfortunately the next likely scenario is even sadder. There are things that take one’s mind elsewhere when reading that give one hope to be proven wrong, but sad knowing what the outcome would be.
If you like reading for clues and making your own assumptions hoping to be right or wrong, this book is perfect for you. The author gives you so much, it makes you feel one with Catherine in her path of discovery to what happened When She Fell.

This book is so intriguing. I love how it has different scenarios in a kind of who dunnit mystery. I love the mother’s POV and getting to see how she is a year after this tragedy has happened. It is very suspenseful and haunting. It is great to see how the mother has people that allow her to grieve the way she needs to and not trying to change her or make her better. The daughter’s life that comes to light kind of hints at social peer pressure and the need to be a certain way. It is definitely worth a read.

This book was compelling from the start and all the way to the end. The more the suspense built up the more I couldn’t put it down. The grief the mother Catherine has for her daughter Susie and the manner this accident happened, has Catherine looking for the truth. and honestly, I’m so happy she did or there wouldn’t be this compelling, drama, suspense, emotion, truth, mystery story. This book had me guessing to the end, it had me thinking that that was what happened and then twist nope not right. This book an amazing read and I’m so happy I read it. held me to the end.

Road to the Mansfield (Express Investigations Book 1) by CB Laurence

Road to the Mansfield is the first book in the Express Investigations Series and is a suspenseful read that one you start reading there’s no stopping until you finish. This is a new author to me but I must say im a fan already. This is one of those books that will have you turning the pages while on the edge of your seat trying to put all the pieces together. This authors style of writing along with their characters make for a wonderful story. This is about three different people and three different stories but one fateful night there worlds collide and no one saw it coming. This is a fast paced story where there’s alot going on but this author did a wonderful job bring everything together . I’m not going to give anything away but I highly recommend reading this book to find out what happens next. I can’t hardly wait to get my hands on the next book in this series. I look forward to reading many more books by this author.
