He should have chosen me.
I never should have chosen him.
Lizzie has been in love with her colleague Dean for three years but he’s never given her a second glance.
When a job offer in London promises to launch her art career she finally feels ready to upend her life in pursuit of her dream … until the night of the office Christmas party when Dean confesses his love for someone else – Rebecca, one of Lizzie’s closest friends.
A few days later, the police show up on her doorstep.
Rebecca is missing.
After The Party was my first book by Georgina Lees. The mystery surrounds a missing young woman named Rebecca and her co-worker, Lizzie, who’s determined to find her. Their common bond is another co-worker, Dean, the man at the center of the tale. The story is a slow burn, with steady pacing throughout, and a somewhat surprising ending, considering what we learn about the characters. This is an unusual story, but Ms Lees makes it work.
