Brenda’s rating & review: 3.5 of 5 stars
I was lost in the mushy, grassy field in the desolate coulee with Kaceey and Susanne reading Last Night. Things started off a bit slow for us with this story and at times we wanted to nod off in the coulee, however, there was enough suspense to the story to keep us turning the pages right to the end.
Kerry Wilkinson does a good job creating an interesting, unlikable, and unreliable character here with our main character Rose. A dense fog soon fell over us in the coulee as we tried to piece together along with Rose the missing pieces from her memory. She kept us guessing as she created confusion with some twists and turns and we could feel her fear with every turn she took. The tension built for us as she starts to unravel the mystery of what happened last night and in the end, the fog cleared and we were satisfied with the ending.

Thank you, NetGalley, Bookouture and Kerry Wilkinson for a copy to read and review.
Rose just had the oddest of nights. On her drive home from an out-of-town meeting, she mysteriously awakens in her car, in the middle of a field. Drawing a complete blank, no clue what happened, how she got there. And just to add to the shock of it all, Rose notices blood on her windshield! But she’s unhurt…and there is no one else around.
Rose is a woman shrouded in mystery. What happened all those years ago that she doesn’t want anyone discovering? What exactly happened in that field? And why won’t she confide in her husband? Her car keys are in the fridge, her work card is missing, AND to remind you…Rose waking up in the field! Is someone gas lighting her? Or is she really losing it?
This is the second book by Kerry Wilkinson I’ve read. While I absolutely loved The Girl Who Came Back this one didn’t quite rise to the same level. Don’t get me wrong – it had all the mystery and twists I look for, but it never “grabbed me.” I missed the connection with Rose.
Thank you to NetGalley, Bookouture and Kerry Wilkinson for this ARC to read in exchange for an honest review.
