Welcome to my spot on the tour for The Girl She Was Before by Jess Kitching, hosted by Rachel’s Random Resources.
A crime thriller with a brilliant twist you won’t see coming!!
Powerful, packed full of gruelling details that will linger with you long after the book has finished.
Nat lives a picture-perfect life, but it wasn’t always this way. A victim of horrific bullying when she was a teenager, Nat will do anything to keep distance between the girl she was before and the woman she is now.
But when her best friend is murdered and people begin to point their finger at her, Nat’s new life quickly begins to unravel.
To Nat, it’s no surprise that the crime happened at the same time as the return of her biggest tormentor, Chrissy Summers. A woman with a violent streak who destroyed lives when she was younger and isn’t afraid to do it again.
Face to face with the past she so firmly keeps behind her, Nat’s sanity wavers as her determination to reveal Chrissy as the monster she knows her as rises to dangerous heights.
The question is, can Nat prove Chrissy is a killer, or will Chrissy get to Nat and her family before she has the chance?
You can’t outrun the past…
This is a debut!?!?!? I don’t believe it. Jess Kitching writes like a seasoned pro, and I was absolutely blown away by The Girl She Was Before! I’m a big fan of thrillers and this kept me on the edge of my seat through the entire book.
The characters make this novel. The ones you love and the ones you love to hate. Each with their own personality and deep character building. Wow. I love a character driven novel and that is what I was given.
I could keep writing this review, or you could go grab your copy. If you’re a thriller fan who loves amazing characters and clever plots, this is for you!
