Everything That Follows by Meg Little Reilly
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received this book from Harper Collins Canada for an honest review. This was my first book by this author and I really enjoyed it. Die hard thriller/suspense fans might find this book a little tame for them but it kept my interest throughout. Three people go out on a boat at night and only two come back. Did the third person make it to shore on their own? That is what Kat and Hunter hope for. There are various reasons why they don’t go immediately to the police for help and once that decision is made their lives are never the same. The characters in this book are all flawed and this affects their morality or lack thereof. I love character driven novels and these characters had so much dysfunction and ambivalence to right and wrong that I really had to see how this story would end. There were so many different choices and paths they could have taken at various times throughout the book. I kept second guessing them thinking “don’t do that” practically from the first page. The ending was a bit simplistic but it still worked for me. I think this book would be great for book clubs as there are a lot of discussion points. Overall a great read for me.
