The Long Weekend by Gilly MacMillan

‘By the time you read this, I’ll have killed one of your husbands’

In an isolated retreat, deep in the Northumbria moors, three women arrive for a weekend getaway. Their husbands will be joining them in the morning. Or so they think.
But when they get to Dark Fell Barn, the women find a devastating note that claims one of their husbands has been murdered. Their phones are out of range. There’s no internet. They’re stranded. And a storm’s coming in.

Friendships fracture and the situation spins out of control as each wife tries to find out what’s going on, who is responsible and which husband has been targeted.

This was a tight-knit group. They’ve survived a lot. But they won’t weather this. Because someone has decided that enough is enough.

That it’s time for a reckoning.

Gilly Macmillan (2022)

I absolutely loved this gripping novel. It is brilliantly written.

The story flows with lots of emotions and confusion throughout. Who is honest? Who is lying? Who can be trusted? Who should be fearful? These questions and more will keep you turning page after page right to the final page!

This is definitely a book I would recommend for those who enjoy a fast paced thriller with plenty suspense guaranteed to keep you guessing.

Thank you NetGalley, Random House (UK) Cornerstone and Gilly Macmillan for the opportunity to read this ebook. This review is my own honest thoughts on the book.
