  • Fab read!

    Once again, Ruth has written an unputdownable psychological thriller. Soon into the book, poor Lauren, the bride-to-be, starts to receive sinister gifts. Then came the scary happenings which absolutely set me on edge while reading. Cue the tension. I loved how the mystery then deepened. So many suspects but not once did I want to believe that any of them could be tormenting Lauren, but someone was and I had to stay up into the early hours to reach the end. I have to mention the Thailand location. It really made me feel as though I was there, making lockdown that little bit better. So I got a healthy dose of escapism too. Lauren was a likeable character, someone you can properly root for. The two main perspectives used in the book were Lauren and Adam, her fiancé. I found his chapters gave me further insight into what was happening and I enjoyed those just as much. I particularly loved the flashback chapters. The book starts with a deadly bang that had me turning the pages fast, and the revelations were shocking. Just when I thought I had it all sewn up, my theories unravelled which totally kept me on my toes. If you love a fabulous twisty turny read, then this is it!

  • An addictive thriller!

    The Wedding by Ruth Heald follows Lauren, who is finally marrying the man of her dreams, her childhood sweetheart, Adam. It should be one of the happiest times of her life, but a few weeks before the wedding, disturbing things start happening to Lauren. From threatening messages to being pushed down a stairs, it becomes apparent that someone is targeting her and wants to sabotage the wedding, but who and why? As the big day draws closer, Lauren realizes that she can't trust anyone - not even Adam. I really enjoyed this book. The plot kept me engaged until the end and the writing style flowed really effortlessly. If I didn't have so much going on this week, I think I could've easily devoured this book in a day or two. Lauren is a relatable character and you can't help but empathize with her and root for her. The tension build-up was great and I enjoyed watching the mystery unravel. The culprit wasn't a surprise but overall it didn't take away my enjoyment of the story. I do have to say though, I have no idea what Lauren saw in Adam. He was a liar and a coward and I think she deserved better. I would have been just as happy if she had left him in the end. All in all, this was an entertaining and gripping thriller. I definitely recommend it. Thank you to Bookouture and NetGalley for the opportunity to read this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

  • Wild Domestic Thriller!

    The prologue grabs you from the off and takes you on a wild ride in this family domestic thriller! Very tense and tight with twists and turns throughout. Adam and Anna are childhood sweethearts about to be married when strange things begin to happen. Just when you think you know whodunnit the story turns again and leads you down the aisle of absolute danger.

  • Bonkers but so much fun and lots of twists

    That was bonkers! I made some notes while reading it and it seems to consist of mainly questions! That’s what you do when reading this twisty little gem - question everything! Because nothing, absolutely nothing is as it seems. I had a lot of fun reading it, it was full of unreliable narrators and twists and red herrings and, and ... After a very dramatic prologue which foreshadows danger ahead we go back a little while to get the full story. Lauren Haywood (35, an A&E doctor) is due to get married to Dr Adam Glenister, a GP. But strange and unsettling things start to happen. She gets a card with the same picture she has chosen for the invites. Inside, the stark message “he doesn’t love you” screams at her! That’s just the start. Things escalate and get darker and soon she is wondering if Adam is having an affair. The loving couple is due to get married in a church that had special significance to Lauren’s parents who died 18 years ago in a white water rafting jolly in Thailand. But that, too, comes undone. She is also about to meet her sister, Tracey, for the first time since the funeral. She and Tracey have been estranged since then and Lauren is keen to set things right and reconcile with her sister. At the same time it is clear that Adam has not been entirely honest with her about his past among other things. It is fun watching Adam tie himself in knots trying to wriggle out of fessing up to a number of things. How will this end? The wedding is moved to Thailand where her sister owns a luxury resort hotel. And that is when things start to get seriously twisted. Reading my notes back I can see where I jumped from one conclusion to another. All I can say is - don’t count your chickens! This was a sometimes light and frothy read but it had plenty of darker moments. The pace was fast and consistent throughout. The characters were a little cliched but served the purpose for the story they were written into. It got a little far fetched as it went on but I think that’s the nature of the genre. You are never meant to take this sort of story seriously! All in all I thoroughly enjoyed it and will be keen to see what this author comes up with next. This book will appeal to thriller lovers and those who enjoy a psychological drama. Thanks to, Netgalley, Bookouture and Ruth Heald for providing a copy for review. My opinions are my own. I give this one 4 solid stars.

  • Incredible

    Rating: 4⭐️-I loved it. TW: Death. Cheating. Who doesn’t love a good thriller? Lauren is planning her perfect wedding to her perfect fiancé Adam. But when she gets a letter in the mail that says “he doesn’t love you”. Things begin to spiral and all Lauren’s plans go down the drain. I really enjoyed this book. It had short chapters to help push through quickly. Every time I thought I knew the “who” it changed. By the end it was pretty obvious who the “who” was but they why kinda fell flat for me. Overall I really enjoyed this book.

    Thanks for your feedback!
