about the MARRIAGE

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.

my thoughts

Bridget and Tom are in love and have just got married.  But it’s not a normal wedding……it takes place in prison.  Why? Because Tom is inside for manslaughter…..of Bridget’s son, Jesse!  When release day finally comes, Bridget and Tom must break the news of their union to their loved ones.  But how will they react? And is everything as it seems?
I’m not saying anything else on the plot as I don’t want to give anything away!  I read this and spent the whole time trying to figure out what was going to happen and who I should be suspecting.  I changed my mind so many times it was crazy! But that’s the fantastic thing about this book – it will have you hooked and you will have no clue what will happen next.  The twists absolutely blew me away – some of which I genuinely didn’t see coming!
The characters are all pretty mysterious and I’m pretty sure you will doubt each and every one of them in some way!  I really liked Bridget but felt that I shouldn’t – there was something about her, Jill was a miserable old bag, Tom was handsome and charming but again, I felt there was more to him that I realised.  Basically every character seemed to have something about them that made you question them!
Slater’s writing style is fantastic and really will keep you hanging on.  It’s enjoyable, easy to read and follow and intriguing.
Overall, if you’re looking for a fabulous, gripping psychological thriller that will get you suspecting everyone and wondering what is going to happen next, then this is for you! Highly recommended by me.
