The Wedding is a psychological thriller from a new author to me and I’m happy to review it today.
Just four words were printed in the card. He doesn’t love you.
I’ve been dreaming about this day – marrying Adam, my childhood sweetheart, who I’ve loved for eighteen years.
I didn’t realise the perfect day would turn into the perfect nightmare.
I was so excited to send out the wedding invitations, carefully writing everyone’s names on thick cream paper in beautiful cursive script.
I had no idea I was inviting someone to destroy our marriage.
I couldn’t wait to say ‘I do’ surrounded by loved ones clinking champagne glasses.
I couldn’t imagine that one of them would try to hurt me.
It was meant to be the first day of the rest of our lives.
I never thought it would be the end of my life as I knew it.
We were meant to share our vows, to toast our future. But when the truth comes out, shocking the onlooking guests and ripping my heart out, is a happy ever after possible?
A completely gripping and totally addictive read that will get your blood pressure rising and send shivers down your spine. Fans of Date Night, The Sister-in-Law and The Girl on the Train will devour this twisty, dark and gasp-worthy page-turner in one swift gulp!
Buy The Wedding
Lauren and Adam, childhood friends, sweethearts and now engaged to be married are all set for the wedding of their dreams when Lauren receives a nasty note in mail. This sets off a trail of doubt and suspicion and it soon becomes clear that someone is attempting to sabotage their wedding? Who could it be? What are her/his motives for this?
I love how this fast paced book twisted and turned. Each time I thought I knew who the culprit was, I was wrong. I just had to read it straight through to the end or I wasn’t going to be happy!
A thoroughly enjoyable, twisted and suspenseful book – the kind of book you’d like to read simultaneously with a friend and keep comparing notes to see if we’re both on the same page! 😉
My first book from this author, but I’ll be looking out for more books from her.
