Publisher's Summary

Something bad has happened to Alison Taylor. 

Her Saturday night started normally. Recently separated from her husband, Ali has been persuaded by her friends to go on a date with a new man. She is ready, she is nervous, and she is excited. She is about to take a step into her new future.

By Sunday morning, Ali’s life is unrecognizable. She wakes, and she knows that something is wrong. She is home, she is alone, she is hurt, and she has no memory of what happened to her. 

Worse still, when she looks in the mirror, Ali doesn’t recognize the face staring back at her. She can’t recognize her friends and family. And she can’t recognize the person who is trying to destroy her....

From the number one best-selling author of The Sister, The Gift, and The Surrogate, The Date is a gripping pause resister that will keep you awake until the early hours. Perfect for fans of The Girl on the Train and Before I Go to Sleep.

Great Story

Narration was perfect.
Story kept me guessing until the end. Which I love!
I loved how flawed and complex all the characters were.
I feel like I know them all.
I miss them already.

Twisted Date night

Louise Jensen wrote magically as Jasmine Blackborow repeated her words elegantly.
Ally has a bad date night and to make it worse... she wakes up with facial recognition disorder.
Someone is after her...but who!...she can't recongnize anyone.🤗
Loved the suspense! If you want a good novel this is it.
Leave it too Jensen to make your listening worth while.

Neurological deficit enhances the suspense

An original twist sets this novel apart from the conventional woman-in-peril suspense/thriller. Specifically, the protagonist's inability to recognize faces following a disastrous blind date adds an original, intriguing aspect to the story. I was involved in the novel from beginning to end, despite its overly convoluted plot. Recommended to fans of this genre.

SO SAD.

Don't let this book fool you... It is so twisted and you will constantly try to guess the ending. Definitely a sad ending though.

Disappointed !!!

Once again another author is obsessed with giving readers a ‘twist’ that they ruined a good story with an improbable ending. I think The Girl on the Train has sabotaged so many other books since it came out and everyone was raving about the shocking twist! I think I’m going to start bypassing books that have ‘unexpected twist’ on the cover! Ugh!! The book started off really good and suspenseful 75% was great, then as advertised the shocking twist is just that, unbelievable. It just did not jive at all. I groaned and reluctantly listened to last couple hours. Thankfully this book was inexpensive. I would not recommend wasting money or credit on this one.

Bad Date

I did not care for this book. The first few chapters were engaging and actually very suspenseful! But once the author entices the reader from the get go it falls flat. That’s a recurring issue I’ve found with many suspense novels-The beginning of the book is actually the climax and pages that follow are anti-climax.

This is very google

🔎So much happens in the small world our characters inhabit. It is interesting enough that I never felt bogged down with too much
info as can happen in the "oh, gee, what can possibly go wrong?" genre. I will listen to it again some time and watch for a sequel...

Helpless and feckless female

The main character is an annoying and stupid female that insults all intelligent women. In addition the author expects us to put aside any sense of reality or common sense. The story is unbelievable and stretches credulity.

Disappointing

I really wanted to love this book. But it was long drawn out with unlikeable characters and a predictable plot.

Excellent

Brilliantly written. Unravels itself at different points throughout the novel so you’re not quite sure what’s going on and who’s to blame. Really enjoyed it.

Held my attention, face paced thirller

I enjoyed this book. It was fast paced and started quickly and dramatically. Very well written and enthralling to the end. However I found the story not believable after all was revealed. The villans motives and actions seemed rediculas given the perceived crime he thought the main character did.
Still very good read
