The Sunday Girl

by Pip Drysdale

The Girl on the Train meets Before I Go to Sleep with a dash of Bridget Jones in this chilling tale of love gone horribly wrong … Some love affairs change you forever. Someone comes into your orbit and swivels you on your axis, like the wind working on a rooftop weather vane. And when they leave, as the wind always does, you are different; you have a new direction. And it’s not always north.’

Any woman who’s ever been involved with a bad, bad man and been dumped will understand what it feels like to be broken, broken-hearted and bent on revenge. Taylor Bishop is hurt, angry and wants to destroy Angus Hollingsworth in the way he destroyed her: `Insidiously. Irreparably. Like a puzzle he’d slowly dissembled … stolen a couple of pieces from, and then discarded, knowing that nobody would ever be able to put it back together ever again.’ So Taylor consults The Art of War and makes a plan. Then she takes the next irrevocable step – one that will change her life forever. Things start to spiral out of her control – and The Sunday Girl becomes impossible to put down.

    I have my own online book club via FB, called ‘The Princess Library’.
    I regularly post book reviews, author recommendations and everything in between. ‘The Sunday Girl’ sounds like a cracker read, topical, relatable and allowing a voyeuristic glimpse into the complexities of human relationships.

    This is my review of The Sunday Girl by Pip Drysdale.

    The Sunday Girl is a story of love and revenge. If you loved The Girl on the Train, you will love this book as well. Pip Drysdale is one of those authors who make you feel that you are in the story – she takes you through all the highs and lows of the main character, Taylor Bishop, as she navigates through the love and heartbreak of her affair with her boyfriend Angus Hollingsworth.
    Also, the book shows the love, strength and support that only a loving friend can provide when one can’t confide in close family members. Sometimes our dear friends are the ones who can see through the facade when we are too infatuated to see faults in those we love.
    In this story Taylor has a couple of ‘therapy’ sessions with a client from her work and an acquaintance. They leave her confused and not sure of the right path to follow.
    Will she end up with the man of her dreams? Will she be haunted forever by the events that have shaped her life?
    An intriguing story of love, drugs, revenge, death – read it – you won’t be sorry.
