It was supposed to be the perfect reunion: six university friends together again after twenty years. Host Ali finally has the life she always wanted, a career she can be proud of and a wonderful family with her college boyfriend, now husband.

Memories someone would kill to protect.… (lisätietoja)

This phycological thriller is loaded with rancid relationships between people who are supposed to be friends, once again reinforcing the fact you never really know anyone, no matter how close you are. It also deals with the subject of rape and a woman's right to say no. All sides are presented without fluff. The characters are appallingly despicable in a lot of ways, yet still human. I can't decide who's worse, Ali, Kar, or Jodi. And then there are the guys, Mike and Callum, who are both drunks and worse—Bill is the exception, the one shining star. The story starts with a gathering of old college friends, then proceeds down the rabbit hole into an abyss of relationships gone horribly wrong. There are many plot twists, some obvious and other complete surprises, but the book is not dull and held my attention until the end. ( )

What you Did by Claire McGowan is a 2019 Thomas & Mercer publication.
Ali is hosting a reunion party for a group of old Oxford College friends. They haven’t all been together in the same place at the same time in twenty-five years. Ali is both nervous and excited. Things so horribly awry after a night of heavy drinking. Karen, Ali’s best friend, is assaulted and blames Ali’s husband, Mike.
Unable to wrap her head around the possibility that her husband could be a murderous rapist, Ali discovers layers of lies and secrets about her husband and her best friend. Which one is telling the truth? Karen or Mike?
This book was an Amazon Prime first selection … from nearly two years ago. Oy! Better late than never, right?

I would like to say this one was worth the wait- but there were a few issues. I thought the premise was very intriguing- and I was highly invested, at first. Unfortunately, there were too many side stories, too much implausibility, and Ali’s gullibility irritated me.

The characters are very shallow people, and there is no promise of character growth once all their secrets are laid bare. There were some thought provoking topics, but they got lost in a muddle of unnecessary drama and uneven pacing.

Overall, this one was a miss for me- but you can’t win ‘em all.

This started out so well. What would you do? How would you react? Unfortunately the story didn't live up to the opening. The main character? Ugh. Totally unbelievable. ( )

What You Did is follows an ordinary wife and mother of two who is about to host a get together for their university friends of over twenty years. That party and the events after will forever change the lives of everyone involved. Entering the house broken and bloody Ali's best friend of twenty years, Kate, accuses Ali's husband of assault. This book is a believable story about how lives can unravel in the blink of an eye from a single event and just how far people are willing to go to protect their family. The author does really well with the emotions and experiences of each of the characters within the novel. I truly did not expect or suspect the ending to this book. I would suggest this book for people who enjoy psychological and/or suspense novels. ( )
