BLOG TOUR: The Woman on the Bridge - Holly Seddon

How far would you go to save a perfect stranger?

Maggie is trapped. Dumped on her wedding day, rejected by her family and hounded by a man determined to make her suffer.

Charlotte is desperate. Double-crossed by her only friend and facing total ruin, she will go to any lengths to save what matters.

Two women, one night. A decision that will change everything. 

What did I think?

Holly Seddon is an author whose books I'm always excited to read and I don't even read the blurb as I know it'll be a good one.  The Woman on the Bridge drew me in straight away and as my sense of unease grew, I couldn't wait to find out how it would all end.

Charlotte has already had a bad day when she spots a woman in a wedding dress standing on the edge of the bridge, about to throw herself into the water below.  Like any good Samaritan, Charlotte attempts to talk Maggie down from the bridge and after a few scary moments, they are both safely ensconced in Charlotte's car.  Charlotte then takes leave of her senses and invites Maggie, a total stranger, into her home.

I can perhaps understand why Charlotte was looking for a friend in Maggie, as she had just been viciously stabbed in the back by her old friend Anne, but I wanted to scream at her for being so trusting and gullible.  Of course, the reader sees another side to Maggie, one that Charlotte cannot see.  Maggie is casting a net and Charlotte is about to get trapped.

The Woman on the Bridge is tense, creepy and twisty.  My virtual alarm bells were ringing from the start and I was suspicious of everyone.  The story is entertaining and, as you would expect from a Holly Seddon book, there are plenty of shocks and surprises in store for the reader.  It's an enjoyable, compelling read and a reminder of 'stranger danger'!

I received an ARC to read and review for the blog tour; this is my honest and unbiased opinion.
