Henpicked’s book of the month for May 2019…
Thank you for all your book reviews and interesting discussion about The Aftermath by Rhidian Brook. We absolutely loved it and special thanks to Carol Hurley for recommending it. We look forward to seeing the film now.

For this month we’ve chosen Friend Request by Laura Marshall.
Here are the reviews:
‘A read-it-in-one-sitting thriller . . . Twisty and gripping but always relatable, Friend Request is the ultimate it-could-happen-to-you read’ (Erin Kelly, author of He Said/She Said)
‘I read it in one go . . . supremely grippy with an excellent twist!’ (Sunday Times bestseller, Marian Keyes)
‘Sharp, relevant and tightly plotted, and with a fabulous twist, psychological thriller fans should definitely say yes to this impressive debut.’ (Sunday Mirror)
‘Brilliant’ (Sunday Times bestseller, Jenny Colgan)
‘Laura Marshall ramps up the tension page by page until it’s impossible to know who to trust. It’s a book that should make everybody realise how vulnerable social media can make them. I loved it!’ (Number one kindle bestseller, Rachel Abbott)
