What Happened That Night Reviews
This book is very ambitious, it is obvious that the author wanted to deal with an array of issues - but unfortunately, that comes across as rather phony and spurious. The character of Dahlia, victim and heroine of this story, is a heavily tattooed paralegal with issues. Okay, as one reviewer put it, it is nice to have an interesting protagonist in a crime thriller, but Dahlia and in fact nearly all of the other important characters are deliberately DIFFERENT. To me, this book was just annoying ( ...more
This book is completely gripping all the way through. Fantastically written. Great characters and a great read. Throughly enjoyed.

This is a pretty good thriller.
You have two unconventional main characters and I really liked them. It was nice not reading about conventionally handsome man and ordinary Mary Jane Investigates! Instead, we have two people who don’t conform to social norms and who have each experienced true tragedy in their lives.
Unfortunately, I figured out the main secret of the book at about 30%. Regardless, I still enjoyed the read.
Readers should be aware that there are rather gr ...more
Powerful and Thought-Provoking!
This is one of those novels where the book summary reads like a suspenseful thriller when it is in fact not. Crime, yes, since it deals with rape, but apart from that I would class it as a contemporary drama/romance, that is heavily character driven. I predicted where it was going early on, and I think most readers will as well. Even the revenge, which I thought was going to be a major plotline, wasn’t. That aside, I thought it was a very good book, and I am please ...more
A fast-paced suspense read with memorable characters and rock-solid writing. I was utterly captivated by Dahlia’s quest for healing through revenge and totally charmed by her relationship with James. Rape, suicide, and autism are tough subjects for any author to handle but Block’s intelligence and compassionate approach allow her to succeed. What Happened That Night is a timely story with plenty of controversy for book club discussion. Highly recommended!
I loved the premise of the book
A lost memory of the rape + transformation from pretty girl + the video of rape resurfacing + stress seizures = THE REVENGE
This book resonated with me because of the concept of the plot, the lone vigilante. Dahlia as the tattooed paralegal just seems to be surviving life till the video resurfaced. Her need for wanting the men to pay is justifiable. The author Sandra Block has shown her helplessness and anger in words which caused my angst and ire to resurface.

Excellent revenge thriller. Both narrators were good. Checking out other books by this author.
WHAT HAPPENED THAT NIGHT is a suspenseful, sad, romantic and sometimes violent thriller. I really loved the character of Dahlia. Once she decides to get revenge on the people who brutally attacked her years earlier, the book really kicks into gear! I also loved her growing friendship/relationship with James, and how he supports her. Author Sandra Block does an excellent job building the tension and also making us truly care about the characters. There were some nice twists and turns that I didn' ...more
