Brilliant read, I was completely absorbed and read it in one sitting. It will keep you guessing right to the last chapter and nothing will prepare you for the mind-blowing ending. I always love books by Samantha Hayes but this has to be her best yet.

OMG this is brilliant! I am a huge fan of Samantha Hayes, her books are all wonderful! This one is extremely twisted and I literally could not put it down.
Some horrible, selfish characters and some literally jaw dropping twists. Nothing is quite what is seems and all I can say is poor poor Sasha getting involved in this scenario.  Another example of people who you think live perfect lives living anything but. Fantastic book!

Well, that did not play out how I had imagined at all …. gotta love that right!  Date Night by Samantha Hayes is a book that I devoured in 2 sittings.  It had me hooked from the very first chapter and I had to know how this was going to end.  The ending blew me away - I doubt many people will see it coming at all.  It is a quick read, with short chapters and plenty of twists along the way. If you haven't read anything by Samantha Hayes then you really should, you don't know what you are missing.

Libby and Sean have a solid marriage - or so Libby thought.  One morning she finds a note on her car telling her that her husband is having an affair. She confronts him and things are shall we say tense.  In an attempt to make things better they go out for dinner and have a Date Night.  Things do not go to plan here either and they end up arguing and leaving early.  When they get home they find that their daughter is all alone and the babysitter Sasha is nowhere to be found.  The police are called and the investigation begins. You will think you have this one sussed out but think again!

Thanks to Bookouture and Netgalley for my advanced copy of this book to read.  All opinions are my own and are in no way biased.

Holy cow, this didn't go where I thought it was going. Such a great thriller by Hayes!

Libby finds a note on her car one morning...."your husband is having an affair". She can't believe that her husband, Sean, would cheat on her. They have had an amazing marriage so far. Libby confronts him and things are tense. What better way to fix this than to have a date night? Go out for dinner, have some dranks, you know, the married people things you do to try to seem "normal". They hired their favorite babysitter, Sasha, to watch their 4 year old while they go out. Welp, when they get home they realize that Sasha is gone. Vanished. Her phone and book bag are still there and their daughter is upstairs asleep. What the heck has happened to Sasha? 
This book was so twisty and I really didn't see the ending coming until almost the end. This one is SO. GOOD. 
Thanks to NetGalley for the advanced copy in exchange for a review!

Oh my goodness!!  This book was so good!  It had me from page one and I couldn't stop til I finished!  This is so suspenseful with so many twists and turns, you never know what's going to happen.  And I never would have expected the ending!  Definitely would recommend!

I received this ARC from Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

Date Night by Samantha Hayes is a fast-paced whodunit that will keep you guessing up until the final page.  With twists and turns, secrets and lies, and a jaw-dropping revelation, this one will keep you up into the wee hours.

Libby and her husband, Sean, decide that a date night is in order to try to restore the balance in their marriage after an anonymous note is left on Libby's car that accuses Sean of having an affair.  When the couple return from what amounts to a disastrous evening, they find that their babysitter, Sasha, has gone missing, leaving their four year old daughter alone in the house.  Frantic for answers, the couple search for Sasha but, as time goes by, Libby begins to wonder who, if anyone, she can really trust.  Clearly, there is more to this disappearance than meets the eye.

This is a fabulous read that I would not hesitate to recommend.  I was genuinely shocked by how this one ends. 

Many thanks to NetGalley and Bookouture for this ARC.

Things aren't going well for Libby and Sean as she suspects he is cheating on her. Things get worse when they return from a night out to discover the babysitter is missing.
What really happened to Sasha and how is her disappearance like dto Libby's doubts about Sean?
A good twisting thriller with an unexpected end.
Thank you Netgalley for the arc of this

Wow! Just what? I stayed up all night to finish this book. I’m all sorts of wound up. Date Night is phenomenal! The type of thriller I needed and easily one of my favorite books of the year. My jaw is hanging on the floor. 

Libby thinks she has it all, a beautiful daughter, a successful husband, and an up and coming catering business. That is until Libby discovers a note on her car one morning claiming her husband is having an affair. To help ease Libby’s mind, the couple decide to have a date night out to reassure their marriage. When the date goes horribly wrong, the couple returns home to find their daughter left alone and the babysitter Sasha missing. When Libby is arrested for Sasha’s disappearance weeks later, Libby is desperate to clear her name and figure out the truth of what happened to Sasha. 

While told mainly through the weeks leading up to the disappearance, a good part of the book takes place while Libby is in jail. Strong characters and fast paced burn carry the story from beginning to end leading to a final twist in the last pages. 

 I could not put down this book until I figured out what really happened to Sasha. This book is filled with everything you want in a thriller. I’m blown away by how amazing Date Night is. I’m going to need a couple days to fully process it. 

Run, don’t walk to get hands on this book. It’s that good! 

Thank you to the publisher and Netgalley for gifting me with this advanced copy.

Whoa.  I just finished Date Night by Samantha Hayes!  After picking my jaw up off the floor, I immediately did two things 1) Mark it read, with 5 STARS (adding it to my favorites shelf), and 2) one-click purchased Ms. Hayes’ previous novels: The Reunion, The Liar’s Wife, and Tell Me a Secret.  She has more, but that’s a good start.  Now on to Date Night…
Libby is a content mom to five year old Alice, who is busy with her small catering business.  She thinks she is happily married to Sean, until one early morning she finds a note stuck under her windshield, “Sean is having an affair.”  Those five words turn her world upside down.   
Of course, on confrontation Sean denies the accusation, but it’s a bit too late for Libby’s head, which immediately takes a nose dive into possibilities.  In an effort to calm her suspicions, the two head out for a much needed date night.  Little did they know, their troubles were just beginning.  After the dinner ends in an argument, the pair head home only to find that Sasha, their 17 year old babysitter is missing. 
Buckle your seatbelts friends, this book will take you on a quick ride, ending with a shocking, twist.  This #datenight is not to be missed.

Libby and her husband go out for a date night and upon them returning discover their daughter is home alone and the babysitter Sasha is gone. The police think that Libby has something to do with Sasha's disappearance. This story has betrayals and secrets you would not believe! What you think is happening changes within pages. Amazing book, a page turner.

What a rollercoaster of a read!! Starting with Libby being arrested for murder then going back to the night Sasha her babysitter disappeared. Libby's whole world starts falling part. She thought she knew her husband Sean, but it seems he has lots of secrets,  do they know what happened to Sasha and what are they covering up. 
I read this in a day as had to keep reading to find out what happened that night. I had two shocks at the end I really didn't see either of them coming!

I would like to thank the author, the publisher and NetGalley for the opportunity to read an ARC of this book. It drip feeds you clues as to what might be happening and you think you have it all worked out finally and then you are hit with one last twist. I would definitely recommend this book.

Libby and her husband Sean arrive home after a night out in a local restaurant to find that the babysitter has gone and their four year old daughter is alone in the house.
A psychological thriller with so many twists and turns that I didn't know who to believe. 
I always enjoy Samantha Hayes books and this was a really good read.
Thank you to NetGalley and Bookouture for my e-copy in exchange for an honest review.
