The #1 New York Times bestselling author of One by One returns with an unputdownable mystery following a woman on the search for answers a decade after her friend’s murder.
April Coutts-Cliveden was the first person Hannah Jones met at Oxford.
Vivacious, bright, occasionally vicious, and the ultimate It girl, she quickly pulled Hannah into her dazzling orbit. Together, they developed a group of devoted and inseparable friends—Will, Hugh, Ryan, and Emily—during their first term. By the end of the second, April was dead.
Now, a decade later, Hannah and Will are expecting their first child, and the man convicted of killing April, former Oxford porter John Neville, has died in prison. Relieved to have finally put the past behind her, Hannah’s world is rocked when a young journalist comes knocking and presents new evidence that Neville may have been innocent. As Hannah reconnects with old friends and delves deeper into the mystery of April’s death, she realizes that the friends she thought she knew all have something to hide…including a murder.
I’ve come to enjoy Ruth Ware’s twisted suspense thrillers, particularly on audio, and devoured The It Girl as soon as I downloaded it. When the man sentenced for the murder of Hannah Jones’ college roommate April almost a decade ago, it opens up unwanted memories and soon Hannah is questioning everything that happened…. You’ll want to grab your earbuds and listen to this one!
Hannah and her husband Will are expecting their first child when news comes that the man convicted of killing April is dead. Hannah was her roommate at university and Will had dated April. They, along with Hugh, Ryan, and Emily, were inseparable friends. Hannah suffers survivals and imposter guilt and she wonders if former Oxford porter John Neville really killed April.
The tale told from Hannah’s POV quickly pulled me in. Hannah pushes, probes and often felt unreliable as she conjured up the past, talked to friends, and took us on trips down memory lane to events leading up to the murder. As the story progressed, the tension built until I was so lost in the story the outside world slipped away. Each heart-pounding moment kept me on edge.
Imogen Church’s tone, inflection and voices brilliantly capture Ware’s story. She aids in building up the suspense and allowing us to hear and feel Hannah’s franticness. Church makes listening the format to choose.
Fans of suspenseful thrillers, mysteries and well-honed tales will want to add The It Girl to their summer TBR pile.Narrated by Imogen Church, The It Girl by Ruth Ware delivered a suspenseful thriller that will have you listening into the wee hours. #Audiobook #AudiobookReview #RuthWare #ImogenChurch Click To Tweet
