Review of The Night Olivia Fell by Christina McDonald

4 out of 5 stars

Thank you so much to Gallery Books and NetGalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

I have nothing but great things to say about this book. This was an excellent book from a debut author and I enjoyed every minute of it. I sincerely hope she has more works planned for the future because this was excellent!

Abi is startled awake by the phone ringing in the middle of the night and she immediately knows something is wrong. They tell her her daughter Olivia has been in an accident and is in the hospital. Abi rushes to get there and finds out that her daughter is in a coma and essentially brain dead, she had fallen off of a bridge and the injuries were extreme. The doctors tell her the only reason they’re keeping her on life support is because Olivia is pregnant, which Abi had no idea about. As Abi starts to look into this “accident” more she wonders not only what happened to Olivia on that bridge, who was she there with and who is the father of her unborn grandchild?

This was such an emotional story and I loved reading it. It had plenty of suspense and a great twist that I didn’t even see coming. I loved how the story shifted between Abi in the present day and Olivia in the past before the accident happened so you got a picture of everything that happened prior to Olivia falling off the bridge. I loved how through the whole book you’re introduced to new characters and you’re wondering along with Abi whether they had something to do with Olivia’s accident or not.

Excellent, excellent book and Christina McDonald did a great job for her first book!
