ABOUT THIS BOOK
Two friends go on holiday. Only one comes back.
Orla and Kate have been best friends forever. Together they’ve faced it all – be it Orla’s struggles as a new mother or Kate’s messy divorce. And whatever else happens in their lives, they can always look forward to their annual weekend away.
This year, they’re off to Lisbon: the perfect flat, the perfect view, the perfect itinerary. And what better way to kick things off in style than with the perfect night out?
But when Orla wakes up the next morning, Kate is gone. Brushed off by the police and with only a fuzzy memory of the night’s events, Orla is her friend’s only hope. As she frantically retraces their steps, Orla makes a series of shattering discoveries that threaten everything she holds dear. Because while Lisbon holds the secret of what happened that night, the truth may lie closer to home…
THE WEEKEND AWAY by Sarah Alderson is a compelling and exciting psychological thriller that will have you sitting up all night so you can get to the end and find out the truth.
Orla and Kate have been friends forever and even though they don't get to spend as much time together as they used to, Orla knows that Kate will always be her best friend. So when Kate organises a wonderful weekend abroad just for the two of them, Orla cannot wait. This is a chance for Orla to get a break from her new life as a mother and find herself again but it doesn't take long for Orla to realise that she will struggle to keep up with Kate who is still as wild and fun as always. But when Orla wakes up in their apartment to find Kate missing, it will set off a terrifying chain of events, and as Orla tries to untangle what happened that night, will she be prepared for the truth? A truth that could be much darker than anything Orla could ever have imagined ...
A fresh idea with plenty of twists and turns to keep readers off-balance, THE WEEKEND AWAY is the perfect weekend read. This is a character-driven story and while none of them are particularly likeable, they are all compelling in their own right. I had a soft spot for Konstantin and wanted to know more about him. With plenty of action that takes the reader down many dangerous paths, THE WEEKEND AWAY is anything but boring and I look forward to reading more from Sarah Alderson.
