Book Review: That Weekend by Kara Thomas

Three best friends, a lake house, a secret trip – what could go wrong?

It was supposed to be the perfect prom weekend getaway. But it’s clear something terrible happened when Claire wakes up alone and bloodied on a hiking trail with no memory of the past forty-eight hours.

Three went up the mountain, but only one came back.

Now everyone wants answers – most of all, Claire. She remembers Friday night, but after that… nothing. And now Kat and Jesse – her best friends – are missing.

That weekend changes everything.

What happened on the mountain? And where are Kat and Jesse? Claire knows the answers are buried somewhere in her memory, but as she’s learning, everyone has secrets – even her best friends. And she’s pretty sure she’s not going to like what she remembers.

Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review. No payments made between me and the publisher.

Kara Thomas did it again! I’ve enjoyed all of the other books written by her and this, That Weekend did not disappoint! The book twists and turns are unexpected and promising. Every chapter explains a lot of things that the readers will surely look out for. This book is surely hard to put down, all I wanted was to continue reading and know what really happened during that weekend.

Waking up in the middle of nowhere and not remembering any thing that happened before is scary right? You are not sure of your past, your identity and you feel helpless at all (if that’s me, I’m not sure if I will believe all the people around me too). This is what happened to Claire, she has been clueless of all the memories except that last Friday night. Claire was worried with her friends missing, or they might be dead. Who knows, that’s for the readers to find out. I will not spoil it (or at least, try not to). Claire for me is a good person who is in love at the same man that her bestfriend is in a relationship with, Jesse. This guy, (Jesse) is somehow a lost person who is madly in love with Kat. He will do anything for her (I mean it, ANYTHING; I think, that’s crazy though). Kat, she’s a rich girl with controlling family, she’s not happy at how things work and she can’t the things she wanted, she’s a nice person and a good friend to Claire. The story of the book basically revolves around these three (3) characters and it’s insane on how the events of the story patches at the end. Everyone had a reason for doing things I suppose.

As a blogger, I’ll recommend this book to all other readers and to my friends. The book is exciting and promising. I am confident that you all will enjoy it as much as you enjoyed the other books. I can’t wait to have my physical copy soon! I’ll buy it once it’s available in our local book stores.

That Weekend, has been a great book to get away from my reading slump too! I think, most of you all will agree with me. Better start reading that book if you haven’t yet.. *winks*
