Review: The Date by Louise Jensen


Something bad has happened to Alison Taylor.

Her Saturday night started normally. Recently separated from her husband, Ali has been persuaded by her friends to go on a date with a new man. She is ready, she is nervous, she is excited. She is about to take a step into her new future.

By Sunday morning, Ali’s life is unrecognisable. She wakes, and she knows that something is wrong. She is home, she is alone, she is hurt and she has no memory of what happened to her.

Worse still, when she looks in the mirror, Ali doesn’t recognise the face staring back at her. She can’t recognise her friends and family. And she can’t recognise the person who is trying to destroy her…


Well, I said somebody stump me and she did👏👏👏

Louise Jensen can write a thriller, man. She can write and she can write well. I love her use of descriptive language and building of suspense. I will forever read everything she writes.

This one requires a hefty, massive dose of suspension of disbelief right off the bat. It took me a few chapters, but once you get into the swing of things and accept it, it becomes a fast-paced, well-developed story. And the thing I really love about Jensen’s writing is how all the tiny, little pieces click into place seamlessly at the end.

At the end of the day, this is a complex story about love. But everything that is weaved around it will have your heart pounding and flipping the pages. And I was finally stumped, thank you Louise Jensen for putting my inner detective in her place!!!

A massive thank you to Bookouture and Louise Jensen for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
