Six friends. A bride to be. One murder. Too many secrets.
After drinking too much at her bachelorette party, Maggie Trueheart wakes to find a stranger in her bed. To make matters worse, a phone call brings the devastating news that her friend Angie was murdered some time after they parted ways the night before.
Kelly Delaney, who left the party early, is the first of Maggie’s friends to face questions from Chicago homicide detective Ron O’Reilly. After taking a closer look at the other women who attended the party, O’Reilly concludes that at least some of them are lying.
As the clock ticks down to the wedding day and more shocking secrets are revealed, the murderer zeros in on another one of the girls. Can the killer be stopped before there is another victim?
If you are looking for any fairy tale endings, you aren’t going to find them in this thriller, but you will definitely find dark and disturbing!
The Last Night Out by Catherine O’Connell is one wild ride! It was so unpredictable, twisty, and addicting that I read it in one day and one sitting. I can’t say I liked any of the characters all that much, but some of the things that happened just made me feel so bad for them. I really enjoyed the style of writing, and I can tell I am going to have to read everything O’Connell writes from now on.
The mystery and ending were so shocking, and I didn’t see the big reveal coming in the slightest. The end of the book had me on the edge of my seat, although I would say that most of the book is a slow burn while still being paced well enough that you don’t want to put it down. There are so many layers to The Last Night Out and the plot was very complex. It is definitely on the gritter side so if you like books like that I highly recommend reading this one!
MY RATING: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ / 5
