Any woman who’s ever been involved with a bad, bad man and been dumped will understand what it feels like to be broken, broken-hearted, and bent on revenge.
Taylor Bishop is hurt, angry, and wants to destroy Angus Hollingsworth in the way he destroyed her: ‘Insidiously. Irreparably. Like a puzzle he’d slowly dissembled, stolen a couple of pieces from, and then discarded, knowing that nobody would ever be able to put it back together ever again.’
So Taylor consults The Art of War and makes a plan. Then she takes the next irrevocable step-one that will change her life forever.
Things start to spiral out of her control-and The Sunday Girlbecomes impossible to put down. It’s a tale of love gone wrong…and revenge done right.
Ominous, relentless and intense!
The Sunday Girl is a character-driven, domestic thriller that takes you into the life of Taylor Bishop, a 29-year-old analyst who decides to use the principles found in Tzu’s, The Art of War to damage, destroy, and ruin the life of Angus, her successful banker, boyfriend after he not only leaks a video onto the internet of her engaged in a threesome but also decides to take his previous ex, Kim on the holiday they had planned together.
The prose is taut and gritty. The characters are vulnerable, consumed, and ruthless. And the plot does a nice job of building tension and unease as it subtly intertwines and unravels an intricate tale of lies, secrets, abuse, control, manipulation, violence, and vengeance.
Overall, The Sunday Girl is a dark, unnerving, satisfying read that delves into how much relationships define us and reminds us that hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.
