secrets Not only was I uestioning if Lauren Adam would ever say I do I was uestioning if they should This was an addictive fast paced story The narrative bounced between past and present Lauren is a very likable character and you really want her to have her big day Adam on the other hand I still am not uite sure about him There was a large cast of secondary characters and I was seriously suspicious of all of them at one point or another But I do have to say at about 75% I was pretty certain of the culprit Even though I knew the who I wasn t uite sure why until it was revealed I m still not sure how I feel about the end it was slightly over the top A fun read with some pretty wild twistsThis book in emojis Big thank you to Bookouture for my Portrait of a Starter: An Unhidden Story gifted copy of this book All opinions are my own 3 Til Death Do Us Part Stars. Rfect day would turn into the perfect nightmareI was so excited to send out the wedding invitations carefully writing everyone’s names on thick cream paper in beautiful cursive scriptI had no idea I was inviting someone to destroy our marriageI couldn’t wait to say ‘I do’ surrounded by loved ones clinking champagnelassesI co. 35 stars He doesn t love you written on a note sent to Lauren is the start of a seuence of menacing to Lauren is the start of a seuence of menacing in the build up to her wedding to Adam The story is told by them in the present day and backtracks to 2001 The first half is really enjoyable there s a How the West Was Lost: Fifty Years of Economic Folly--and the Stark Choices Ahead good pace to the plot it s a uick and entertaining read The strange things that happen to Lauren are intriguing though over the top but they do make you want toallop on to see if your ideas are correct There s betrayal plenty of suspects as a number of protagonists are being very devious and covering things up There is some suspense but I would have liked I like the Thailand setting for part of the story which adds colour and warmth to the proceedings However the second half doesn t work as well for me as the first as it s easy to work out the perpetrator so there are no huge surprises The plot twists become predictable and clear to see The end is overdone overly dramatic and feels like the cliche end of a bad soap opera Adam is not likeable and I can t understand why he s regarded as such a ladies man and a catch as he s such a coward The characters are a bit one dimensional and none of them are conveyed particularly strongly The style of writing is a bit flat and impersonal and it might have been dramatic and tense if written in the first person However overall despite having a number of reservations I did enjoy it despite its predictability It s escapist reading so perfect for lockdown and on the plus side you can vicariously enjoy a trip to Thailand With thanks to NetGalley and Bookouture for the arc for an honest review 10 Things I liked about this book1 The settings of London and Thailand2 The many unexpected changes of plot direction 3 The fact it had me sneering muttering well that was easy I know who it was and why early on 4 The fact I didn t5 Then after I knew I had ot point 3 wrong I then managed to work it out correctly and uessed who what why and when 6 The fact I hadn t again 7 The easy style writing of the book it was written for the reader and was welcoming 8 The Characters ood and bad who were easy to visualise and et to know 9 The description of the hotel where the wedding took place the rooms food and atmosphere 10 That it was a comforting read very enjoyable and at the same time fooled me at least twice 10105 Stars This book was Moonrise great fun It centers on Lauren who isetting married to her long time partner Adam A few weeks before the wedding she starts Fallen Angel: The Passion of Fausto Coppi getting threatening messages and it seems clear that someone is trying to stop the wedding There are a lot of potential culprits for who is out toet Lauren making for a twisty and fast paced read The pacing of this book was reat I thought I had figured out who the villain was and was I was disappointed it was so easy but turned out I was wrong The characters were believable and were built up the point where I understood where their actions were coming from I did think it was a little far fetched that Lauren and Adam had been together 18 years but she wasn t sure if she could trust him not to cheat that seems like an awfully time to not have a point of view therei would have a point of view thereI would recommend this book to those who like psychological thrillers and mysteries it s a uick read with a lot of surprises and characters that were 3 dimensional I will be looking for books by this author thanks to Netgalley for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review Lauren opened the card expecting to see a congratulatory message about her upcoming weddingBut inside was a photograph of a doll in a torn wedding I paused and read it again my hands trembling as I scanned the vicious message Just four words were printed in the card in such small lettering they were almost an afterthought He doesn’t love youI’ve been dreaming about this day – marrying Adam my childhood sweetheart who I’ve loved for eighteen yearsI didn’t realize the pe. ,

Ruth Heald ☆ 1 READFictional characters really need to stop planning elaborate weddings Their special day always oes off the rails For better short and to the point chapters move the story along at a ood pace the attempts at misdirection along with the multiple possible suspects it s not filled with only unlikable characters For worse the characters were too one dimensional It made connecting with them difficult the twists were pretty obvious I had easily figured out the who by the end of the book The why was less obvious but a little too implausible for my personal tastes That was bonkers I made some notes while reading it and it seems to consist of mainly uestions That s
