Summary

Just four words were printed in the card. He doesn’t love you.

I’ve been dreaming about this day - marrying Adam, my childhood sweetheart, who I’ve loved for 18 years. I didn’t realize the perfect day would turn into the perfect nightmare. 

I was so excited to send out the wedding invitations, carefully writing everyone’s names on thick cream paper in beautiful cursive script. I had no idea I was inviting someone to destroy our marriage. 

I couldn’t wait to say ‘I do’ surrounded by loved ones clinking champagne glasses. I couldn’t imagine that one of them would try to hurt me. It was meant to be the first day of the rest of our lives. 

I never thought it would be the end of my life as I knew it. 

We were meant to share our vows, to toast our future. But when the truth comes out, shocking the onlooking guests and ripping my heart out, is a happy ever after possible? 

Fans of Date Night, The Sister-in-Law, and The Girl on the Train will devour this!

Well read but such weak characters

I did manage to finish this novel but what a dreadfully weak set of characters. Who on earth wants to marry such a weak man? The past is the past and 'tis always best to reveal at the start than to be found out later. Not that he did anything dreadful so why not come clean. Our past is what defines us, warts and all but this bunch seem to have too many secrets and not enough backbone to claim them. Good narration was a bonus but I guessed the end long before the denouement so actually wonder why I persisted to the end.

Weak

8.5 hrs of listening to a neurotic woman planning her wedding and all the details associated with that!
Oh yes, and then there is a little time where something interesting happens.

Good listen!

Enjoyed this book. Narrator excellent as usual. The storyline was good but I think I I have listened to far too many of these Psychological thrillers as I figured it out 1/4 way through. It was still entertaining which makes this listen a 4 star for me!
