Genre: Psychological Thriller


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 you.

I’ve been dreaming about this day – marrying Adam, my childhood sweetheart, who I’ve loved for eighteen 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?

My Thoughts:

Ruth Heald has done it again!!! Only BETTER!!! This is by far her best book to date and I have loved them all!!! Her writing is so easy to devour in a single sitting! I loved how the layers peeled back from each of the characters one by one until we were left at the end with the raw truth. I was guessing all sorts of scenarios and I thought I had it all figured out only to be whacked over the head with the ending and then the very end left me looking like Chris Pratt in that gif from The Office where he’s like, “Ohhhhh!!!” I hope you know the one because that was honestly my face when I read the last page. I most definitely recommend The Wedding and I’m so excited for Ruth’s next book!!!!

Huge thank you to Bookouture and NetGalley for allowing me to read The Wedding in exchange for my totally honest review!
