The Wedding Day
published May 17, 2023
The blushing bride. The handsome groom. A secret one of them will kill for…
It’s the day I’ve been dreaming about my whole life. As I glide down the flower-strewn aisle overlooking the Greek orange groves, in my pearl-encrusted ivory gown, I finally see my fiancé Nik. We look like the perfect couple, but not all fairy tales have happy endings…
Today is supposed to be the day of my dreams.
But I don’t see a single friend or family member. I’m surrounded by strangers.
I have been so excited to finally meet my fiancé’s family.
Then why do they turn their heads away as I walk down the aisle?
Now, as I say my vows, I gaze longingly into Nik’s eyes.
But instead of love, he looks through me, as if he can’t wait for this day to end…
And I suddenly have an awful feeling that I don’t know my fiancé at all.
But then again, he doesn’t truly know me either.
And by the time he finds out who I really am, it will be far too late. There’s only room for one happily-ever-after on this wedding day, and I’m determined to make it mine…
I have loved the books I’ve read of Sue Watson and this one is no exception. And I’ll say the twists started for me from the beginning. I’m not sure if I read the synopsis or forgot it, but that was not the beginning I was expecting. I am spoiler free here, so you’ll just have to trust me to just go in blind and enjoy a few extra twists. Especially since the beginning is a little bit of a slow burn.
I loved the setting of Corfu. Greece is on my bucket list and it felt like I was there. And I like that our main character is 40 something. I’m starting to see an uptick in a slightly more mature (age wise and not necessarily in actions) characters.
And so many red herring hints, that I was kept on my toes. I was sure I knew where this was going and alas I didn’t know. I was right on a few guesses and way, way off on others.
Definitely an entertaining read.
