Her dream wedding is about to become her worst nightmare
Julia is nervous and it’s not just because she’s about to get married. There’s a lot that her soon-to-be husband, Mark, doesn’t know – and she is determined to keep it that way.
As she walks down the aisle, spotting Mark is his tailored suit, she knows she is taking her first steps to happiness- her past can’t catch her now. He 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
I am so glad I picked this book up!
I thought that the story was very well written and I loved the way that the author told the story. It was a book that drew me in and hooked me, and it held my attention right through to the ending – I thought it was great – very well developed characters that were believable and worked really well together and with the plot.
In my view it was an excellent debut and it is clear that the author has a sound knowledge of the subject and it shone through in her writing – I thought it was a well written psychological thriller that had the perfect build up and just the right amount of suspense to keep me on my toes and guessing – I loved it!!
It is 5 stars from me for this one – very highly recommended, I will certainly be looking out to read more books from this author now in the future – this was a cracking debut – and I love that cover too!!
