    1. Here's a really fresh take on a 'whodunit' with the protagonist recounting events that led to her death. TV journalist Melanie Black was brutally murdered, and instead of the 'bright light at the end of the tunnel' she finds herself living in the home of her murderer and his wife and son, although of course, they can't see or hear her.Melanie Black wasn't a particularly nice person, she enjoyed putting people down, and had no qualms about 'sticking the knife in' if she saw someone as a threat, e [...]

    7. Read this pretty much in one sitting this afternoon - clever, addictive tale, a crime thriller with a ghostly element - well actually a literal ghost trying to muddle her way through the afterlife and eek out some kind of revenge at the same time.Where She Went is told entirely by Melanie, who has woken up dead, stuck by the side of the man who probably killed her and his long suffering wife. Everybody pretty much is horrible in this novel - even poor Eve, said wife, who puts up with a controlli [...]

    8. DNF at 38%I began skim reading this book at 31% and felt it would be unjust to finish and review a book that I didn't not give my full attention to therefore I chose to abandon the book.Why I didn't finish this book:It's not often I don't finish a book but I just couldn't get into this one. From the open pages, I felt I wouldn't be able to connect with the story due to its narration style but I hoped in time I'd settle to the books structure but sadly I didn't. Narrated by Melanie, who is dead, [...]

    9. Where She Went is an intriguing novel which centres much more on character development and relationships rather than focussing on a ‘mystery’ as such. It’s not exactly what I expected but I hugely enjoyed reading it, from first page to last. Told from the point of view of Melanie, we (and Melanie herself) soon realise that she’s actually dead, and viewing the life of her murder Peter and his family, as they seem to carry on with their lives. What follows is a really interesting and rathe [...]

But when his wife enters the room with a tea tray and both the man and his wife ignore her, she realises that they can't actually see or hear her - because she is dead. Melanie must then try to remember what has happened to her, why she is in this house and what she can do to move on.This was a great concept, well-executed and entertaining with well-drawn, although no [...]

    11. This was a slow read for me. Took me a while to slog my way through and once I was up to half way I thought I may as well finish.Well written, if a little to much blahing on by "Melly". I thought the main character was a bit of a mean girl. In fact she was down right nasty to Eve.Glad I finished it so I could see how things ended for Eve and Adam.

    12. I won this book via a giveaway.It took me a while to finish this book as it didn’t really grab my attention. I thought the plot was clever but it lacked any real suspense or thrill for me. An ok read .

    13. Where She Went by B E JonesThis is a psychological thriller with a difference. Melanie Black wakes to find her somewhat crumpled self on a bed next to a man that she does not know.

Quite quickly we learn that Melanie is dead. Melanie’s memories are vague and she cannot recall the circumstances that brought her to [...]

    14.

Then his wife walks in and Melanie quickly realises no-one can see her, no-one can hear her because she isn't really there, she's dead. How did she die? Did this man kill her? So many questions, as Melanie pieces toget [...]

    17. BRILLIANTLY AND ORIGINALLY PLOTTED, SURE TO BE ONE OF 2017's BEST MURDER MYSTERIES.Set in South Wales, B E Jones' "Where She Went" is a spectacular example of originality. It grips from the very start. The novel is dictated through the eyes of the victim: Mel Black.Mel, a TV Reporter and journalist "awakens" to find herself a spectre in the family home of Peter, Deputy Chief Accountant for Swansea Council, and the perpetrator of her murder. However, the precise order of the events which occurred [...]

    18. TV journalist Melanie Black wakes up one morning next to a man she doesn't recognise. It's not the first time - but he ignores her even though she's in his bed. Yet when his wife walks in with a cup of tea he greets her with a smile and to her horror, Melanie comes to realise that no one can see or her hear her - because she is dead.I really enjoyed this book and read it very quickly as I found it an easy and compelling read. At first, it reminded me a bit of The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold in [...]

    19. An unusual take on a ‘whodunnit’, Where She Went is more about the ‘how’ than the ‘who’ of this murder. We know that Peter is the murderer, but as Mel comes to terms with her situation she starts to remember more and more about the night she was killed. We learn the facts through the media, and it’s interesting to see it from this perspective rather than from the police perspective. It definitely kept me reading. The concept of the book is definitely interesting, but there aren’t [...]

    20. Be prepared this book has the most incredible storyline…Parts paranormal, parts mystery and parts thriller, Where She Went follows the ghost of TV journalist Melanie Black as she tries to discover who killed her? Why? And how to bring them to justice?The book features a great cast of characters, some incredibly likable and some I straight up detested. But with such good variety there is always something for everyone.I absolutely loved this book and finished it in a day, I am positive it will b [...]

    21. This provides a fresh take on the psychological thriller, in that the narrator, TV journalist Melanie Black is a 'g-word', haunting the house of Peter and Eve and their young son Adam. Melanie isn't sure why she's there, but observes the controlling and abusive Peter and meek and mild Eve, and sees her old colleagues on TV report her disappearance. There are a few unexpected twists and turns as Melanie seeks to bring Peter down. I really liked Melanie's voice and anger, and the plot was intrigui [...]

    22. I won this book through giveaways and I really enjoyed it, so much that I read over half in one sitting last night, it's a bit of a whodunit murder mystery and even though I guessed whodunit it was a really good read, I'll definitely be recommending this one and looking forward to more from the author, thank you for introducing me to someone new

    23. The first 4 chapters of this book were very hard to follow but it is written very well and turns into a bit of a mystery.

    24. Whilst I thought it was a great premise for a story, it took me four attempts to get past the first few chapters. Then somehow it got gripping as new facets of peoples' characters came to light and I wanted to see how the story ended.

    25. I loved the description for Where She Went - there are plenty of books where a victim's last days need to be pieced together before justice can be realised but it's rare to have the victim doing the work. They are dead after all When Melanie wakes up in a strange bed, next to a strange man she doesn't understand the awful truth at first. It's only when she realises that nobody can see her that she begins to recall the events that would eventually lead to her death.Where She Went is written in th [...]

    26. This is a debut novel written from Melanie Black's point of view. It starts with Melanie waking up in a bed next to man which is being brought breakfast by his wife Eve. Melanie wonders why Eve isn't bothered about her laying next to her husband Peter. Is this some sort I'd sordid love affair? No, Melanie is in face dead. Melanie was a tv new reporter, who I couldn't relate to and I found her very self-centred, dark and egotistical. Peter Albright is a very handsome man working in accounts for t [...]

    27. Interesting premise but just didn't excite me at all. I almost gave up but didn't and whilst it wasn't terrible it just didn't float my boat. None of the lead characters are particularly attractive and the why behind the disappearance of Melanie is not fully delivered until the end by which point it seemed irrelevant. Think this could have been a lot darker and more challenging which would have made it a more exciting and psychological book.Sadly didn't work for me. A very generous 3* due to som [...]

    28. This story has an interesting premise. The central character wakes up in an unfamiliar bed, an unfamiliar room, fully dressed but lying beside a man she does not recognise. And to compound her confusion, his wife walks in with a cup of tea for him but neither seem to be aware of her. It's not a spoiler to reveal she is, of course, dead.The other interesting thing about this book is the fact our dead TV journalist is not a very nice character. Lacking in empathy for those around her, bad tempered [...]

    29. Melanie Black wakes up in a strange bed next to a new man and wonders how she got there and so begins this unique take on the old murder mystery. It kept me guessing most of the way through and I couldn't wait to sit down and read each new chapter.

    30. An excellent idea, brilliantly executed.Not only do you have to suspend disbelief to read a novel written by someone who's been murdered, most of the characters, including the dead narrator, are unlikeable/downright evil and yet it works on so many levels and had me up really late to at night to finish. A cracking good read and I'm already looking forward to B.E. Jones' next novel.p.s. Bonus points for being set in South Wales by someone who really knows the area.[Review copy received from the p [...]
