  • An Exhilarating Début

    😊 This twisty, exhilarating thriller had me guessing the whole time, as it stampeded along. As soon as saw this novel I knew it had to be read, and it certainly did not disappoint. I thoroughly enjoyed Before I Say I Do, a deeply engrossing tale of mystery, duplicity and suspense. The book is narrated mostly from two viewpoints, those of Julia Talbot and Detective Alana Loxton. It is Julia Talbot's wedding day, however, there is a slight problem... her fiancé Mark Rowthorn is missing. DC Alana Laxton is new to the team at Southwark CID after being transferred out of her MIT position and she wants to make the best impression she can. But things are not ringing true for Alana with Julia and Mark. Vicki Bradley has a very appealing style of writing and the characters she created were very credible. For me, Julia was ambivalent, weak-minded and appeared very dependent on her best friend Lucy. Alana came across as someone with tenacity and passion for her job, as well as possessing a strong sense of justice and I liked her rapport with team member DC Dominik Kowalski. The story zips back and forth between the present and the past, building a complex, layered story full of twists and turns, giving a heavy tone of apprehensiveness and foreboding. I was immediately questioning the characters' motives as some were so secretive and unreliable, making for some exceptionally nerve-racking reading. I found Before I Say I Do totally riveting, the various unfolding of events and revelations making this book even more absorbing. The story-line was absolutely fantastic and the suspense was kept at a maximum level throughout. This tense début is a mesmerising story of betrayal, lies and harboured secrets, with other undesirable themes thrown into the mix, such as money laundering, drug abuse and gambling, all of which keep the reader guessing and completely attached to their e-reader. The author eventually wraps everything up very neatly in a thrilling, fulfilling and satisfying ending. I loved this brilliant thriller and would have given it far more than five stars if I could. Would I read more from Vicki Bradley? Yes... the author is obviously a very good writer. My thanks must go to Vicki Bradley for writing such an awesome book! 😊 I received a complimentary copy of this novel at my request, from Simon and Schuster via NetGalley and this review is my unbiased opinion.

  • The groom is missing! Nerves or something else?

    Thank you to Netgalley, Simon and Schuster UK and Vicki Bradley for giving me the opportunity to read this advance copy of Before I Say I Do. It’s Julia’s wedding day. Her nerves are to be expected – every bride feels the same – but there’s another layer to her fear, one that she cannot explain to her soon-to-be husband, Mark. She’s never told him the details – and she is determined he never finds out. As she begins down the aisle, spotting Mark in his tailored suit, she knows she is taking her first steps to happiness – her past is behind her, it can’t catch her now. Mark turns to face her . . . But it isn’t Mark in the beautiful suit – it’s his best man. Because Mark is missing. And Julia’s past is closer than she thinks . . . This was a good book, my first by Vicki Bradley but I intend to read her others now which is always a good endorsement. I read it quickly, eager to find out what happened next. I liked the 2 detectives and the way they worked together to solve Marks disappearance. The writing was great and the characters were well created. I didn't really warm to Julia or Lucy but I think that was the authors intention. Although I had guessed one aspect the rest was surprising, lots of twists. #beforeisayido #Netgalley #simonandschusteruk #vickibradley #domesticsuspense #greatsummerread #readallnight #finishedinonesitting
