  2. Fictionophile

    The cover is what first attracted me to this novel This time choosing by dust jacket paid off in spades.A remote, dark, and ominous Scottish locale, an emotionally damaged protagonist, a psychopath, two sweet little children what could you want in a thriller The day she died was the first novel I have read by Catriona MacPherson It is a creepily foreboding psychological thriller that had me spellbound I can honestly say I enjoyed it as much as some early Ruth Rendell novels High praise from me [...]

    A young mother Becky died She either killed herself or was murdered Her husband and children, were left behind A kind woman steps in and cares for the children and their father The situtation is too good to be true He doesn t miss the wife and his new friend, fits pefectly into the role of mother and wife Becky s friend Ros is missing A lot of questions and suspicions surface A crime was committed Who is really dead and who is alive The author kept the reader in suspence up until the last few ch [...]

    The Day She Died by Catriona McPherson is one of those small books that is deceptive in pace and content It moves slowly, almost stumbling along as it sets itself up You will figure out later that this was deliberate as the tale is told through its narrator who despite her outward appearance, is stumbling along through her life as it is So my point is basically this The day I met Gus, the day she died, the day I grew a family like I d planted magic beans, was the day I told Dot at work about my [...]

  5. Mark Stevens

    The Day She Died is slow burn creepy Jessie Constable is three dimensional and one of a kind She is both cheery and easily troubled, confident and easily thrown She s alert and analytical when time calls and equally willing to trust and go along To help Catriona McPherson infuses Jessie Constable with a unique point of view the attitudes and feelings of a woman who suffers from Pteronophobia, a.k.a fear of feathers It s a real thing Jessie lives it We soon have her radar for the triggers We re s [...]

  6. Laurie Stevens

    This book seemed at first to have all the right elements A troubled young woman with a pardon my saying so bizarre phobia meets a mystery widower with kids She begins living with him and becomes a substitute mom, all the while discovering there s behind Mr Mysterious s wife s death We ve seen this plot before but to McPherson s credit, the entire novel is done with a lovely Scottish brogue and a fair share of Scottish slang in a Scottish setting and all of that sets it apart The characters each [...]

    I Don t Think So This book has received much attention and quite a bit of praise Unfortunately, I was sure I knew the ending a few pages in Nothing between those pages and the ending on page 301 changed my thinking or surprised me at all I kept reading because I had read so many positive comments Surely I was reading an incredible book but it was taking a bit to get up to speed Now, having wasted several hours, I solemnly swear to act on my instincts no matter how many awards or praise from othe [...]

  8. Bev

    This is definitely NOT a book to be reading at home, alone, on a dark and stormy night Mysterious, bizarre and creepy, with a dash of warmth and fun just when you need it we experience the beginning of a strange relationship between the central figure Jennie and a man and his two children, and slowly grow to understand the peculiar details of his story A real page turner

  9. Erin

    Jessie Constable is just like us all she has secrets Things about herself that she keeps private They re nobody s business but her own, really, and her life is going along as well as can be expected She s not unhappily single, has a job she likes, and friends Everything is OK Then, in one strange moment in a supermarket, everything changes.Without really meaning to, Jessie suddenly literally in hours has a completely different life, one that revolves around Gus King Jessie wants to be a good per [...]

  10. Ionia

    When I first began reading this book, I wondered what in the world was going on in it The first few pages didn t offer much in the way of explanation and I was a bit confused As it progressed, I came to understand where the author was going with it, and really felt a sense of the story pulling together nicely This is an interesting book The pace is not fast and at times I found the decisions of the main character a bit aggravating The way she ingratiated herself into the lives of the family this [...]

  11. Angela Oatham

    A very puzzling read for me this one Jessie works in a charity shop, has no friends and is single She also appears to be stalking a, quite obviously, married man At this point I was a bit confused, did I mention there s also a woman locked up against her will so there s obviously a baddy on the scene somewhere My advice to you would be just go with it because after a confusing start it develops nicely into a great physiological suspense Jessie gets sucked into Gus life, far too easily in my opin [...]

  12. Shannon

    In, The Day She Died, McPherson has created a terrific story of suspense that drives the reader on a breathless race to the end We immediately fall in love with quirky, strong, courageous and vulnerable Jessie She s like that really great friend who would give us her last glasse of wine or, as the saying goes, grab the shovel and not ask questions She s funny and smart and we love to spend time with her And yet, she has blind spots and her generosity can get her into trouble We ache for her and [...]

  13. John Mchugh

    Nancy, having met Catriona, put me on to this I m not naturally attracted to psychological thrillers, but I must say this was a treat to read Characters I found interesting, engaging and a bit off in a way that made me want to know why Always a delight when the people in the story are compelling than the plot or the writing itself Though I must say, in retrospect, her descriptive powers and dialogue are quite wonderful Again, I ll be back for .

  14. Micaela

    This was easily the most unbelievable book I have ever read, and I have read my fair share of fairy tales Would anyone really just drive some rando all around Scotland And take care of his kids Just because I certainly wouldn t Maybe call someone The cops But man I found myself reading along, and all of a sudden my brain said, No This is impossible.

  15. Melissa

    Very odd book First 3 4ths of the book is highly detailed, meandering and interesting, I enjoyed the quirkiness and Scottishness But the plot is completely unbelievable and the last 1 4th of the book ends very quickly and tidily It seems like the editor said Just get on with it and finish already.

  16. Dalia

    Creepy thriller Only critique is the kids were not written age appropriately no 4 and 2 year old speaks or thinks that way, they were written as 12 year olds It was super creepy though will go back to Dandy G for a break

  17. Melissa

    Odd story that had me at one point just wanting to skip to the end The ending had a good twist but the whole plot seemed wrong I don t think I know too many people who would help in all the ways Jessie did with a man she didn t know.

  18. Susan Finck

    I can t believe that anyone in their 30s could be this gullible in the present day and age Lots of shaking my head throughout the reading of this novel Still, it managed to keep my interest to the very end.

  19. Annika Morris

    Couldn t put down Read in one day on a rainy Saturday A fast moving novel with a twisty turning plot that kept me guessing till the end.

  20. mary

    Stellar Had me all the way through I ll admit to being a bit confused about Jessie s intentions at the very end Sequel

  21. Lynn

    The many twists and turns kept me reading, but the success of the plot centers on the stupidity and gullibility of the protagonist.

  22. Atiqah

    And indeed this book kept me guessing right up to the end It had me thinking, frowning, but wide eyed trying to figure it out Catriona McPherson tells a mysterious tale using well crafted characters with each their own quite complex personalities You ll find yourself trying to figure out why s he s behaving this or that way, and often than I m proud of I caught myself thinking How did I not see this .The aspect I like most about The Day She Died apart from the plot, of course its characters It [...]

    Jessie Constable, though seemingly average, is a bit of an enigma She works part time in a church thrift store, quotes from the Bible and makes a lot of religious references but rebels against religion because of her strict upbringing Apart from a challenging childhood, she s quite normal and likeable, but has few or no friends One day Jessie s shopping when she runs into a man she s met on a couple of occasions The first time they met he was balking over the price of a birthday cake for his dau [...]

  24. Stacy

    This was one of the stupidest books I have ever read I kept reading thinking there would be a plot twist or something to justify the stupidity Nope The only reason I did not give it 1 star is because I did finish reading it and did have some hope that it would miraculously turn around Nope The writing itself is pretty crap almost like train of thought, hard to follow, jumps all over the place I will say part of my issues with the writing may have been a language difference as this is set in Scot [...]

  25. Kathy

    Catriona McPherson is the type of person who starts talking and everyone listens You just know that Scottish brogue of hers is ready to spill a tale or make you laugh Her writing cements her promise of a great storyteller, with the same shades of hook and catch as her speaking She draws the reader deeper and deeper into a world where there is no escape but through the weave of words that bring you to the edge and have you holding on for dear life I suppose I could have just said that Catriona kn [...]

  27. eyes.2c

    Deceptively fascinating thriller The storyline in The Day She Died was completely unexpected in its unfolding A pyscho thriller with than its share of laudable twists and turns There are scores of little touches that resonate as a new vista into what s happening is opened up, recalling hints from a seemingly innocent observation mentioned previously Jessie Constable is a worker in a church thrift store She meets Gus King and his daughter in Marks and Spencer just as he is given the news that hi [...]

  28. Lori L (She Treads Softly)

    The Day She Died by Catriona McPherson is a recommended creepy story of psychological terror.In The Day She Died Jessie Constable is a loner who suffers from pteronophobia, the fear of feathers, and works at a charity shop in Dumfries, Scotland She has been watching a customer, Gus King, and ends up giving him a ride home when he is distraught and seemingly unable to function Once at his home with his two kids she learns that his wife, Becky, left him, but soon after that it is discovered that B [...]
