January Mystery Crime reading Challenge.

The Mystery/Crime reading challenge started this month. The book I chose to download and read was
328 pages.
Since July 2011 'The One You love' has been downloaded over one and a half million times, has spent a full month at number 1 in the UK Kindle free download chard (July-August 2011) and has spent over a year near or at the top of UK Apple ibookstore free crime and thriller chart.
The story revolves around Emma who is shortly to be married. On her hen night she receives a phone call from her brother who should be out on her Fiance (Dan's)  stag night to say that Dan has gone missing. They race over to his flat to find a body on the floor badly injured and Dan nowhere to be found. Emma's nightmare is about to begin as first one then another of her friends and family come under suspicion. The race is on to find Dan before the police do.  Who can she trust and who is she to believe. The pace is fast and keeps you guessing right up until almost the last with a good twist at the end. 
A sequel has been written to this book  called  'The one you Fear' which takes up the story 4 weeks later.
My rating 9/10.
Full details of The Crafty Book Nerd 2013 mystery /crime reading challenge can be found here. you can join in the challenge at time during the course of the year.
