Today I am taking part in the books on tour and reviewing on its publication day The Marriage by K.L. Slater, published by Bookouture.
Ten years ago he killed my son. Today I married him.
Ten years ago my darling son Jesse was murdered and our perfect family was destroyed. My strong, handsome boy, so full of life, became a memory, a photo I carried with me everywhere.
But today I’m finally close to finding happiness again. My ash-blonde hair has been curled into ringlets. Carefully placed white flowers frame my delicate features. The small, drab chapel has been prettied up with white satin, and there are tiny red hearts scattered on the small table where I will soon sign the register with my new husband.
The man who killed my son.
My friends and family can’t understand it. My neighbours whisper in the street whenever I walk past. How can I love a man like Tom?
They don’t really know me at all…
The most unputdownable psychological thriller you’ll read this year from the bestselling author K.L. Slater. If you love The Wife Between Us or Gone Girl, you’ll be totally hooked on The Marriage.
It’s been awhile since a tagline made me stop in my tracks and had my jaw dropping to the ground. “Ten years ago he killed my son. Today I married him.” I mean cmon how could you not pick up this book based on that alone! It is pure gold, goosebump worthy and better than anything, is for the latest novel from one of my favourite authors, the queen of the psychological thriller, K.L. Slater!
This book is completely messed up in the best kind of way. I could not wrap my head around how Bridget could form any type of relationship with her son’s killer let alone marry him. I had so many questions and all throughout she had me second guessing her as to whether it was really love or a way to seek revenge. An eye for an eye so to speak. Of course you will just have to read this for yourself to find out!
As always K.L. Slater keeps the reader engaged and completely captivated. There is a lot more to this story than meets the eye and she keeps it all close to her chest. The tension and suspense that is built up along the way has you on edge and feeling anxious, as you just know that there is going to be something big around the corner. In what I have come to expect from a K.L. Slater book, she does this in spectacular fashion and delivers another thrilling twist.
The Marriage is a gripping page turner that I could not get enough of. A strong plot that has been perfectly executed, great characters and is K.L. Slater at her absolute best. I absolutely loved this book and I am certain that you will too!
Thank you to K.L. Slater, Bookouture and NetGalley for allowing me to read an advanced copy of The Marriage, which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
