Today I am taking part in the books on tour and reviewing Just Married by Kiersten Modglin. This was released on the 5th of July, published by Bookouture.

Book Description

When my husband found this perfect little cabin in the woods for our honeymoon, I couldn’t wait to get away. Just us in the middle of the forest, waking up every day in the trees, ending each night in the hot tub under the stars. But now I’m not sure that I know my husband at all…

I just wish we’d gone to the police when someone left a note on the doormat saying: She’s dead, you’re next. Ryan said I was overreacting, but I don’t understand why he won’t go to the cops now things are getting worse. Can I trust my husband?

I’ve known about the terrible thing that Ryan did for years and it’s been tearing me apart. Last night I told him I would always keep his secret. But is the man I married hiding something else from me?

Now someone has cut the phone lines and we’re trapped here. Ryan swears he has no idea what’s going on and just wants to keep us safe. I’m here alone in the middle of the dark forest with the man I thought I could trust. My heart is racing and there’s no one I can call…

My husband promised till death do us part. Am I about to find out what that means?

A heart-pounding, unbelievably twisty psychological thriller that will have you sleeping with the light on! Fans of Gone GirlBehind Closed Doors and Date Night will be utterly gripped.

OMG this book is soooooo MESSED up and I was right there along for the thrilling ride! How have I not read anything by Kiersten Modglin before! A serious mistake on my part that I am so thrilled to have rectified by reading Just Married. Now please excuse me for a minute while I just go and purchase all her other books!….(insert hold music here) Ok, I’m back and now that’s done, on to my review!

We all make compromises in relationships but is out leading lady Grace about to realise there was one compromise she should never have made? An idyllic getaway to a remote cabin in the woods seems like the perfect belated honeymoon destination, but is it perfect? When frightening unexplained things start happening, shouldn’t her husband Ryan be terrified rather than the calm that he appears to be? Is he the one doing these things, or is there something more sinister at play.

Just Married is a creepy and disturbing tale, that I should not have started after it became dark, because I could not put it down! Each little sound in my house made me jump and my nerves were absolutely shot! Told from the perspectives of both Grace and Ryan, each chapter became more terrifying than the last and those twists! Damn, I can see why Modglin has been dubbed as “The Queen of the Twists”. She absolutely nails them!

I could talk about this book for hours, but I will stop here as it has become dangerous territory of me accidentally going to far and revealing that fabulous and jaw dropping ending. You just need to read this book for yourself. Its so chilling and will most definitely be part of my best books for 2021!

  1. I felt the same. I’ve now bought most of her back catalogue and did a buddy read of The Liar’s wife. We are now reading The list and my opinion is the author needs psychological help 🤣 x
