The Marriage Secret by Carey Baldwin

I’m so delighted to be on the 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.

He married me despite my darkest secret. But am I safe now that I know his?
From the outside, my marriage to Zach was perfect: dream home, a perfect baby girl and passionate, all-consuming love. When we met, I confessed my darkest secret to him and he never judged me for it. Instead, he vowed to always protect me whatever the cost.

But as I cradle my gorgeous baby, I have to accept that the husband who used to be my everything, has changed. At first it was little things: expecting me to keep to a strict schedule, picking out my clothes for me. Now, he controls every aspect of my life: from how much money I have, to when I leave the house and who I can see.

One fateful night, a young woman is found murdered and Zach is a potential suspect. Turning towards me, a look of warmth returning to his eyes, he swears he’s innocent, and I realize there is only one solution. If I agree to be his alibi, he will keep my secret and our daughter can grow up in a loving home. In that moment, I do what any faithful wife would do: I stand by him.

But I know deep down, only one of us will make it out of this marriage alive.

A completely unputdownable and twist-filled psychological thriller from USA Today bestselling author Carey Baldwin. Fans of The Wife Between Us, The Marriage and Gone Girl will be totally addicted to The Marriage Secret.

My Review

Oh my God, this really is as unputdownable as the blurb says! I was totally consumed by this book from start to finish and it was responsible for a couple of late nights of reading!

Zach is a truly horrible character and I couldn’t understand why Holly would stay with him. He’s gaslighting her, but she’s much cleverer than I first realised and there are some twists and turns that take this cleverly plotted book to new heights.

I have read many books in this genre of domestic thriller, but this is one of my favourites, it flows so well, is super twisty, and has a main character that you’ll love to hate and will want to see him get what he deserves.

Be warned, it’s so addictive that you’ll find it hard to put down. I raced through it, I just had to see where it was all going to end.

A new favourite author for my list, I’ll definitely be reading more from Carey Baldwin. Can’t recommend it highly enough, superb!
