I’m delighted to be part of the book tour today for this gripping book. Thanks so much to Bookouture for the copy of the book and invitation to be part of the tour.
The moment Joanna told me she was engaged, I had this awful feeling that something was wrong.
We used to speak on the phone every day. Growing up I spent more time at her house than I did at my own. I’d always imagined what it would be like to see her get married, and now I didn’t even know her fiancé’s name.
She asked me to come and meet Mark and I intended to tell her to slow down. You can’t know someone for a month and be sure that you want to spend the rest of your lives together.
When I got to Joanna’s front door, only Mark was there. He was charming and gorgeous and nothing but nice to me, and I started to understand.
And then he told me that Joanna was missing.
The Bride is a twisty, unputdownable psychological thriller that will have you reading until late at night. Perfect for fans of The Girl on the Train, Gone Girl and anything by Lisa Jewell.
It’s certainly true when it says that this book will have you reading until late at night! I just had to keep reading to find out what was going to happen at the end.
This is a book that will really keep you guessing. Whenever you think you know where the plot is leading, along comes a twist, right up until the end.
I felt that Alice was very trusting, perhaps foolish at times. But it was clear that she had some issues, and it was actually easy to see how she’d get caught up in this. Mark, I wasn’t too sure of. Obviously, he’s upset because Joanna is missing, but there’s a lot of contradictions to him. I wasn’t sure if he could be trusted or not.
The setting is completely perfect for the atmosphere and the plot. It’s on the periphery of such a busy city, but yet so isolated and cut off. This makes for even more of a feeling of entrapment and abandonment than if it were set in the countryside.
Such a chilling and gripping book, it really is impossible to put down. It will leave you reeling. Super stuff.
My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
