Publisher's Summary

The moment Joanna told me she was engaged, I had this awful feeling that something was wrong.  

We used to speak on the phone every day. Growing up I spent more time at her house than I did at my own. I’d always imagined what it would be like to see her get married, and now I didn’t even know her fiancé’s name. 

She asked me to come and meet Mark and I intended to tell her to slow down. You can’t know someone for a month and be sure that you want to spend the rest of your lives together. 

When I got to Joanna’s front door, only Mark was there. He was charming and gorgeous and nothing but nice to me, and I started to understand. 

And then he told me that Joanna was missing. 

The Bride is a psychological thriller that will have you listening until late at night. Perfect for fans of The Girl on the Train, Gone Girl and anything by Lisa Jewell.

Assume nothing as nothing is as it seems

I had this novel all wrong. I just knew I'd figure out not only one suspect but two and I was waiting for all the details to align to confirm my assumptions. That didn't happen because I was flat out wrong. I was disappointed about that too, because I just knew at least one of my suspects was, if not the ring-leader; an accomplice. Again, no such luck. As the reveals started being exposed, I was really shocked and even blurted out loud, "No way"! Still, with all the craziness and the actual goings on being made clear, the very ending was the most shocking. It sent my mind reeling with all kinds of scenarios because that's what happens when lose ends remain untied. This novel certainly keeps you guessing and is well worth reading. A bit of advice though, assume nothing as you will very likely be wrong as well.

Started off promising but quickly went downhill

The narration was good. The story was dumb and not believable. The characters didn’t make sense in the book and their reasons for being there were not revealed. If you like to read these types of book, don’t waste your time or money. You won’t be fulfilled nor entertained.

The Bride

An excellent psychological thriller with twists that boggle your mind. Just when you think you know what is going on, it changes and you have to try again to figure out who’s evil or not!! I enjoyed it but as all good books, you wish for a sequel so you know what happens next!!!

Infuriatingly weak protagonist

I almost couldn’t finish the book because the main character was so weak, pathetic...and in many cases just plain dumb.

Good book. Poor ending

The narration was good and the story line / plot was interesting - filled with twist and turns. However did not like the end. Reminded me of battered womens' syndrome. Protagonist was unable to break the cycle.

I couldn’t get past chapter 2

This is my favourite genre and the summary sounded interesting, but I couldn’t listen to the narrator for a minute longer...The actual writing seemed bland and I just couldn’t get into it - not for me unfortunately.
