HER DREAM WEDDING
IS ABOUT TO BECOME A NIGHTMARE
It’s Julia’s wedding day. Her nerves are to be expected – every bride feels the same – but there’s another layer to her fear, one that she cannot explain to her soon-to-be husband, Mark. She’s never told him the details – and she is determined he never finds out.
As she begins down the aisle, spotting Mark in his tailored suit, she knows she is taking her first steps to happiness – her past is behind her, it can’t catch her now. Mark turns to face her . . .
But it isn’t Mark in the beautiful suit – it’s his best man.
Because Mark is missing.
And Julia’s past is closer than she thinks . . .
Perfect for fans of Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll and Now You See Her by Heidi Perks, this is a dark, twisty psychological thriller that asks the question, how well can you really know anyone?
Before I Say I Do is available in ebook and paperback on the 28th May 2020. You can purchase your copy using the link below.
This was a fantastic, fast paced crime novel which is hard to believe is the author’s debut.
The story is told from the point of view of Julia and Alana as they investigate what happened to Julia’s fiance Mark after he disappeared on his wedding day. What initially looks like a simple case of cold feet turns out to be a lot more complicated and it was great fun to go on the investigation with them. As the story progresses we slowly learn more about them and their past which made for interesting reading.
The author does a great job with the storyline in this book and I thought the plot unfolded at a great pace, keeping me in suspense the whole way through. There were lots of twists which kept me guessing and ensured that the ending took me completely by surprise which I always love. I can’t wait to read more from this author and hope that some of the characters in this book make an appearance in a future book.
Huge thanks to Anne Cater for inviting me onto the blog tour and to Jess Barratt for my copy of this book.
