I took part in the blog blitz for this book back in June and am delighted to now be participating in this blog tour. ‘One Fatal Night’ by Hélene Fermont was published in May of this year and is available in both paperback and eBook.
I would like to thank Kelly Lacey of Love Books Tours for inviting me to take part in this blog tour and both Kelly and the author for my review copy.
I will tell you in a minute what I thought about this book after you have had a read of the blurb.
One woman’s quest for revenge unearths a fatal secret from her past.
Astrid Jensen holds one man responsible for her mother’s suicide, and she’ll do whatever’s necessary to get close to Daniel Holst and destroy his life – even if it means sleeping with him to gain his trust. Astrid knows he’s not who he pretends to be. But before she can reveal his dark secret, people from her mother’s past start turning up dead, and it looks like she and Daniel are next. In order to survive, she might have to put her trust in the man she has hated for so long.
Daniel Holst has worked hard to climb into Norway’s most elite and glamorous circles, and he’s not about to let any woman bring him down. But when a psychopathic killer starts murdering people from his shadowy past, he discovers that the only person who might be able to save him is the woman who wants to destroy him.
As Astrid digs deeper into her past, she uncovers secrets long buried and realizes everything she once believed is based on lies. What began as a quest to avenge her mother’s death becomes a desperate struggle for survival and leads to the truth about what happened one fatal night ten years ago—and the surprising mastermind behind the most recent murders.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading ‘One Fatal Night’. I thought it was well written and I found this to be a gripping and exciting story which had me hooked. I liked the short chapters, always handy when you only have time for a quick read.
This book was much shorter than the average novel but there was a lot to the story. I thought the storyline was really interesting and I could not wait to find out where it went. There were a few twists and turns throughout and a couple of shocks too.
Out of all the characters I really liked Astrid. My heart literally went out to her. Imagine living your life and then discovering things were not how you thought they were. That everything you thought you knew was actually a lie. She definitely had a lot to process in her mind.
I did like a couple of the other characters as well, but I am not going to mention them as I do not want you to work out who was good or bad.
I thought this was quite a poignant story in a way. Some of the characters had had awful childhoods which affected them for years to come, including mentally. It was a shame really.
I loved the ending and was really satisfied with it.
If you like crime fiction, then ‘One Fatal Night’ could well be for you. I for one will definitely be reading more of this author’s books.
