The Marriage K. L.Slater 5*#Review @bookouture @KimLSlater #BookReview #newbooks #PschSuspense #Mansfield #Nottinghamshire #TheMarriage

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.

I received a copy of this book from Bookouture via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

My Thoughts…

In a genre brimming with talent, this story stands out.

The Marriage draws the reader in with its scandalous and shocking blurb. The story that unfolds has depth, poignancy and countless twists and is addictive reading. I am familiar with the story’s setting, and the author captures the ethos convincingly.

Told from multiview points, the reader gains insight into the characters’ emotions and motivations. Both of the main protagonists are unreliable. The reader doesn’t know who to empathise with or who to trust. The plot explores Bridget and Jill’s friendship and what happens after the tragedy, illuminating the current storyline.

Relatable characters, contemporary issues, and a plot that keeps its secrets make this an engaging read. The final twists and positive conclusion are a satisfying end to an absorbing story.
