Soon Maggie is staying in Charlotte’s home, safely hidden from the man that she was so desperate to escape. The immediate bond between the two women eclipses anything they’ve ever known and before long they will go to extreme lengths to protect each other.
But is Maggie the best friend Charlotte has always dreamed about, or the nightmare she never saw coming…
I’ve never read anything by Holly Seddon but was very happy to pick up a thriller again after such a long time! “The Woman on the Bridge” is a great thriller that kept me on the edge of my seat from start to finish and I actually read it all in just two sittings.
As she’s driving her fancy car through he countryside, Charlotte spots a woman standing on the edge of a bridge, seemingly dressed in a wedding dress. It looks like the woman is about the take a leap so Charlotte is quick to act and does her best to talk her down. The two women get to talking and Charlotte takes her new acquaintance Maggie back to her house to get out of the cold dark night.
I don’t want to say much more for fear of spoilers, but from quite early on it’s clear that this isn’t going to be a straight forward read and it’s fair to say that it’s full of twists and turns. I found the story to be quite addictive, even though there are many moments when you want to shout at the characters and give them a warning. The story was well written and had a fast paced premise with most chapters ending on a cliff hanger, pulling you back in even when you had intended to stop.
I particularly enjoyed the ending which I definitely didn’t see coming. I’d definitely recommend this read and look forward to discovering more of this author’s work.
Overall rating: “The Woman on the Bridge” by Holly Seddon is fast paced thriller with a good premise. Would you invite a stranger into your home? I enjoyed this read, a strong 4 stars from me!
