The Fall Review

I have enjoyed other stories by Louise Jenson and I was pleased to be able to review her latest thriller.

Twins Kate and Beth enjoyed a surprise fortieth birthday party, the next day separated these sisters after one of their teenage daughters was found unconscious and left in a coma.

When cousins Caily and Tegan failed to arrive for the final rehearsal for their school performance Kate and Beth become worried something terrible has happened. Questions are asked by police about family, their secrets and why anyone would push Caily off a bridge.

I felt compelled to keep reading this book and therefore it did not take me very long to finish.

I enjoyed the short chapters in this story and I liked that chapters had different viewpoints between Kate, her husband Matt, Beth and Caily leading up to her fall.

The atmospheric feelings of the farm are enhanced by the family’s financial situations.

The ending is shocking, and I loved I wasn’t able to guess it!

The Fall is a great psychological thriller filled with secrets, twists and turns to keep you reading.
