    This really did have a twist!

    I was intrigued by this book from the moment I saw the cover. This thriller had it all...broken relationships, friendships and missing persons. I enjoyed the bits of history revealed of Alice and Joanna's friendship, but I sadly struggled to really connect with Alice's character. Just as I felt my attention slipping, Wendy Clarke threw a monkey wrench and everything I thought I knew, I didn't, and what I read I couldn't believe. Forced to put the book down, I was truly excited to pick back up the next night and read her whirlwind finish.

    This was a thrilling read!

    At the beginning of this book you are introduced to Alice, a young woman who has no job and no fiancee once she finds out he's seeing someone else. She does what most of us do, makes plans with her best friend to come visit for a weekend, the time away will do her some good and clear her head, right? She's placed into an extremely akward situation when she gets to Joanna's house, only to find out she's not home, but her new fiancee is. As the book goes along and still no JoAnna, the husband finally confesses that Joanna is missing and that she's been kidnapped and the captor is demainding ransom money. Mark looks guilty all along, wanting Alice to lie to the police and tell them that they've heard from Joanna, but they have not. I liked what a loyal friend Alice was through this whole book, alhthough it was painfully obvious Joanna never really deserved to be her friend at all, she used her and fed off of Alice's desperate need for friendship most of their lives. Lots of secrets come to light, and they are not what you think. This book surprised me and it will you too. Thank you for a wild ride of a story, NetGalley!

    A great psychological thriller

    3 for 3! The Bride is the 3rd book I have reviewed of Wendy’s and it is another ripper of a read! It is deviously twisted and layered throughout with a feeling of unease of what’s to come, that will have you enthralled from the beginning till the end. What I love about Wendy’s books is that her plots are always so intriguing and The Bride is no exception. With a chilling prologue and fraught with tension and suspense throughout, Wendy sure knows how to get her readers attention and doesn’t waste any time in kicking things off and keeping the momentum going till the end. Once inseparable, school friends Alice and Joanna lose touch but reconnect after 10 years, when Joanna reaches out to let Alice know of her recent engagement to Mark. When Joanna tells Alice that she has only known Mark for a month, alarm bells go off for Alice. When Joanna asks her to come and meet him, she jumps at the chance and intends to let Joanna know how she feels. But when Alice arrives, Joanna isn’t there and Mark informs her that she has gone missing and this is where the plot thickens… I really enjoyed the structure of the book and how the story takes place mainly the setting of Joanna’s residence, but I must admit though, this did make me feel apprehensive at first. I have read other books where the author has tried to do this, but missed the mark in its execution which left me feeling bored and in some cases not finishing the book. I was so relived that this wasn’t the case here and Wendy does a great job bringing the building to life, making for a character in itself. The characters of Alice and Joanna are very complex and have been written perfectly. Alice’s character resonated with me the most, she is so fragile and her struggles with anxiety is something I know only too well. I enjoyed how there was only a few supporting characters included in the story, which makes for an easier read, the story wasn’t weighed down by them and it means that you don’t have to concentrate too much trying to remember where they all fit in. The Bride is a psychological thriller in every sense of the word. As the story progressed, so did it’s eerie and sinister vibe. My kindle was in overdrive as I was furiously flicking the pages, as the need to know how it was all going to unfold consumed me. When I got there, I was not disappointed! This is another smashing read from Wendy which I highly recommend and I can’t wait for her next book.
