This is my first book to review from Netgalley, so I was excited to read it! Thank you Netgalley for the advanced copy! I found this book through an amazing book blogger, Jennifer Tarheel Reader.

The story begins with a mother’s worst nightmare, a call in the middle of the night to say Olivia(her daughter) has had an accident. Those first few chapters were a bit heart wrenching, but it quickly turned into a thrilling mystery that I could not put down.

The chapters alternated between Abi trying to find out the truth behind what happened to her daughter and Olivia leading up to the night she fell. I literally did not know what happened until the last few pages. I usually read in the mornings, but this book had me clocking some evening hours just to find out how it ends.

This book was an easy, fast read that kept me turning the pages. I would definitely read more from Christina McDonald. Thank you to Netgalley for this copy of The Night Olivia Fell which will be released February 5th, 2019.

Thanks for checking out my latest review, what have you been reading this weekend?
