The Girl on the Train meets Before I Go to Sleep with a dash of Bridget Jones in this chilling tale of love gone horribly wrong …

Some love affairs change you forever. Someone comes into your orbit and swivels you on your axis, like the wind working on a rooftop weather vane. And when they leave, as the wind always does, you are different; you have a new direction. And it’s not always north.’

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 Girl becomes impossible to put down.

The rear cover blub describes The Sunday Girl as Before I Go To Sleep with a dash of Bridget Jones. This is a pretty fair description. While initially having something of an appearance of 'chic lit' this novel soon moves into a chilling psychological thriller. With part of the story dealing with domestic violence, this novel also has a particular currency in Australian society. It should appeal to a wide range of readers. - Ross (QBD)

The Sunday Girl by Pip Drysdale was a truley gripping and emotionally absorbing psychological thriller that has left me wanting MORE! After being on the rollercoaster that is Taylor Bishop, I walked away actually cheering for the 'scorned lover' so to speak. Drysdale's characterisation of Taylor made her thoroughly relatable and I immediately felt sorry for her even though I did question some of her decisions. Despite this, she is never unbelievable in her actions. Her references to the Art of War throughout just put the cherry on top of a great read. To see a classic used in such a sinister and vindictive way was brilliant. Through the many twists and turns, Drysdale took me on a journey straight to crazy town and back and I can honestly say I threw my hands up and happily went along with the ride. Definitely a book for someone looking for a fresh new perspective at an ever growing genre. 5 out of 5. - Monique (QBD)

If you've ever dreamt about getting revenge on an ex that has wronged you - and who hasn't?! - you will absloutely DEVOUR The Sunday Girl! After Taylor's ex decides to leak her sex tape, Taylor decides to consult The Art of War in order to successfully destroy Angus' life... but at what cost to her own? Described as Bridget Jones meets The Girl on the Train, I couldn't wait to read The Sunday Girl, and when I finally managed to get my hands on a copy, I even read it in one sitting - it's THAT good. Taylor is broken hearted, angry, and fixated on revenge, and with the relatablenss of characters such as Bridget Jones, Louisa Clark and Bella Swan, Taylor is awkwardly funny and often cringe worthy in the best possible way. She's not used to things going her way but she's determined that this time she won't be the one left broken. When her plan goes horribly wrong though, Taylor is dragged into the grip of the consequences of seeking revenge, and the reader is forced to question if perhaps she'll be the one who is destroyed after all. 4.5/5 - a must read that will keep you gripped until the every last page (and watch out for that plot twist!) - Emily (QBD)
