I am super excited to share my review with you today on publication day for The Marriage Pact by Sheryl Browne.
My husband has been keeping secrets for a long time. He thinks I don’t know what he does outside of this house. But I know everything…
Karla watches silently as Jason hurriedly packs his belongings into a suitcase. She knows that her stillness is unnerving him as she watches his every move from the doorway of their bedroom.
Clothes are screwed up and packed into the case, along with a watch she bought him for his last birthday and his precious laptop. He takes everything from his bedside table. Everything except the framed wedding photo, which now stands alone. Karla strains to see the smiling faces in the photo. If only she knew then what she knows now.
‘I’ve fallen in love with someone else,’ he’d said to her, just moments earlier. The brutality of those words hit Karla hard and she struggled to breathe as she took in each word in turn.
You may think you know what Karla will do next. But you’ll be wrong. Because Karla isn’t who you think she is. Only she knows what’s about to happen. And you will never see it coming.
An absolutely gripping psychological thriller for readers who loved The Girl on the Train, Gone Girl and The Other Woman. With twists you’ll never see coming, you will not be able to put this one down!
OMFG what a book, from the very first page I was well and truly hooked. When the author draws us in, with one hell of a first chapter. Then takes us back to three months earlier, where we are taken on a dramatic, pulse racing journey. Where we meet Karla and her husband Jason and follow a story that alternates between them.
So by 32% of this story I was like this book is the bollocks then by 44% I was screaming WHAT at my kindle,the author had blown my mind….so you can imagine how I was for the rest of the story!
I honestly couldn’t read this story fast enough the more I read the more I wanted to know, trying to piece a puzzle together when I didn’t know what the missing piece was. OMG…..LOVE IT!
This is the best psychological thriller that I have read in a while. Like I have said before….For me Sheryl is the queen of psychological thrillers and she certainly lives up to this with The Marriage Trap which is her best book to date. Sheryl has totally nailed it.
With only a hand full of characters in this story, they well and truly got in my head. I could actually hear their voices talking to me and feel all the emotions they went through. Then without giving to much away a couple more characters are thrown into the mix and the author makes you question who you can trust while the story unfolds.
Not forgetting the ending at the moment my jaw is hanging off the floor! This one very well written and incredible story that I cannot recommend enough giving it all the stars.
Thank you to Bookouture for a copy and to Kim Nash for inviting me to take part on the tour.
