The Sunday Girl is marketed as a combination of The Girl on the Train and Before I Go To Sleep with a dash of Bridget Jones which sounds like a pretty big call, though I have to admit I haven’t read any of those books so couldn’t compare.


Pip Drysdale is a debut author who offers up a dark psychological thriller centring on a scorned woman and her quest for revenge.

Taylor Bishop is angry, hurt and gunning for payback after being destroyed by Angus Hollingsworth. She wants to destroy him the way he destroyed her; slowly, insidiously, irreparably.

The Art of War helps Taylor formulate her plan and when she puts it into action she changes her life forever.

The Sunday Girl is a gripping page turner that will keep you up as you race to the final pages looking for the answers. I can’t wait to sink my teeth into this one.

Pip Drysdale can be found on Facebook, Instagram and her Website.

  1. I could rave about this book but don’t want to give too much away.
    I couldn’t even begin to imagine how Taylor got through everything in her life with so many emotions having to find her way out of a really tangled relationship.
    I did not expect the ending, I felt like I was on the sidelines trying to warn Taylor to listen to the warning signs and not to do what she was going to do because that’s how engrossed I got.
    Angus was the worst version of a human being and I really despised his conniving actions.
    To me, this book details similar incidents of abuse (although we’d hate to think it) of what some people in real life could endure and I really felt sorry for Taylor to be entwined in such a relationship because she had been sucked in by Angus.
    Even though Angus was the worst person, it also had some other great characters in it (Charlotte, Val, Kevin and David) and I enjoyed those parts and it kept me hoping that maybe one of them would be part of her life afterwards but….. You have to read it to find out, trust me its so worth the read! Thankyou Beauty and Lace, Simon and Shuster and most of all Pip Drysdale….. Wow this was one I won’t forget in a hurry.

  2. I absolutley loved this book, I devoured it in one day. Easy to read wellwritten. A tale of love & revenge gone wrong. Totally recommend it to anyone who enjoys a light read

  3. I honestly don’t know where to begin with this review. Thank you so so much Beauty and Lace and Simon and Schuster for the chance to review The Sunday Girl.
    From the time I picked the book up I struggled to put it down, it sucked me in from the start. I really don’t want to give too much away but I loved the main character Taylor.
    The book explored different relationships and how someone can have a huge hold over you no matter what your head says. I didn’t expect it to end the way it did but I’m so glad it did.
    I highly highly recommend The Sunday Girl to everyone and will be reading it myself many more times.

  4. The Sunday girl is a great easy read and will have you hooked straight away!!

    It is really hard to write about this book without giving too much away! It follows Taylor who is left heart broken after her boyfriend Angus broke up with her and she is trying to seek revenge. The further into this book you get, the more hooked you become and the more you start to see the characters true colours unfold. Taylor makes a few decisions which have a ‘domino affect’, as she explains in the book and it is interesting to see how the dominos fall and when they stop.

    The ending I did not predict and I actually enjoyed.

    This book is a MUST READ!! It is extremely well written and I cannot wait to read more from Pip Drysdale.

    Thank you so much Beauty and Lace and Simon and Shuster for this fantastic read. It comes highly recommended from me!

  5. Thank you beauty and lace and Simon and Schuster for the opportunity to read Sunday Girl.
    I loved this book from start to finish. It was an easy,clever read. Pip Drysdale captured the life of an abused women perfectly.
    I was addicted from the first chapter.
    Highly recommend, a beautifully wriiten book. Looking forward to Pip Drysdale next novel.

  6. Oh wow I loved this book! Chilling and suspenseful it had me on the edge of my seat from the start, I couldn’t put it down!
    I found the story-line heartbreaking but sadly all too realistic in this day and age. This allowed me to immerse myself entirely. It just feels so real!
    Taylor the main character was so likeable you couldn’t help but relate to every emotion and understand every action she takes.
    I loved the ending and did not see it coming!
    I am thrilled I was given the opportunity to read it so thank you so very much Beauty and Lace and to Simon & Schuster to allow this. Pip Drysdale, you are incredible, this book is so well written! I can’t wait to read your second novel.

  7. The Sunday Girl was an entertaining read. Taylor is in a turbulent relationship with Angus. There is a lot of deceit as Taylor seeks revenge and tries to outsmart her narcissistic boyfriend. However, things get really messy and the story takes on an unpredictable series of events. I found the first half of the book was a slow build up to a then dynamic last half!

    Thank you Beauty and Lace Book Club and Simon & Schuster Australia for the reading and reviewing opportunity. Happy to recommend and what a great first novel by Pip Drysdale, one to follow for sure.

  8. Wow! What an amazing book! The story grabbed me right from the start and never let go – late nights, coffee breaks, every chance I had I was straight back into the story. It was gripping, chilling, suspenseful and authentic. I just didn’t know which way it was going to turn next and, to use a well deserved cliche, it had me on the edge of my seat from the first page.
    Thanks Simon & Schuster and Beauty & Lace Book Club for introducing me to another fabulous author – I can’t wait to read more of her work.

  9. Thank you Beauty and Lace for the oppurtunity to read Sunday Girl by Pip Drysdale. The book is about a woman called Taylor who seems to be in, what seems like from the outside, a perfect relationship with Angus. She is in love and puts up with all the abuse he gives her till Angus leaves her. Her mission from then on is revenge, a single decision one night has a domino effect as she puts it.
    A very interesting and nail biting novel with a very unepected ending! Really enjoyed this one!

  10. This book was very “”entertaining to read. All about Love gone very wrong.
    Taylor and Angus are in a perfect relationship, or so Taylor thought. Angus does something BIG to destroy that and Taylor seeks even bigger Revenge….only to have it backfire on her.
    Very hard to go into details as don’t want to give anything away. Definitely worth a read!!

  11. Another book I had to buy after reading the synopsis on B&L.

    The Sunday Girl is a gripping read and to be honest, scared me to death. Taylors toxic relationship with Angus is every womens nightmare with romance and violence mixed together, Angus is a nasty piece of work and Taylor is caught between love and fear and then a desire for revenge. So is Angus…..

    Gripping! If you enjoy a thriller this is for you! I warned you……
