  • 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!

  • 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.

  • This was my first Ruth Heald book.

    This was my first Ruth Heald book and I was not disappointed! Lauren is so excited to marry Adam. They have know each other for many years. However, as the wedding approaches bad things start to happen. Lauren starts receiving threatening messages and is even pushed down the stairs. Adam thinks he knows who is responsible, but does he really? There are so many twists and turns, just when you think you know what is happening you begin to question yourself. This book was very well written and I really enjoyed the characters and the suspense throughout the entire plot. I would highly recommend this to readers that enjoy books that are fast paced and keep you fully engaged from the beginning to the very end. I can't wait to read more Ruth Heald books in the future! Thank you to Bookouture and NetGalley for providing me with an ARC in exchange for my honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!
