The Marriage: An absolutely jaw-dropping psychological thriller Kindle Edition
Ten years ago my darling son Jesse was murdered and our perfect family was destroyed. My strong, handsome boy, so full of life, became a memory, a photo I carried with me everywhere.
But today I’m finally close to finding happiness again. My ash-blonde hair has been curled into ringlets. Carefully placed white flowers frame my delicate features. The small, drab chapel has been prettied up with white satin, and there are tiny red hearts scattered on the small table where I will soon sign the register with my new husband.
The man who killed my son.
My friends and family can’t understand it. My neighbours whisper in the street whenever I walk past. How can I love a man like Tom?
They don’t really know me at all…
The most unputdownable psychological thriller you’ll read this year from the bestselling author K.L. Slater. If you love The Wife Between Us or Gone Girl, you’ll be totally hooked on The Marriage.

I felt uncomfortable with the marriage. Confused with the goings on. Sad for the child . Frightened for the mother.
Excited to get to the resolution.
Wow what a ride.
This is a five star ride!

Bridget lost her only son ten years ago when his best friend Tom punched him once outside a nightclub, killing him with one blow. Now ten years later, Bridget ha her life back in track with her charity, new house and new husband....Tom, the man who has just served ten years in prison for killing Jesse...her only child.
This book had me gripped. I really enjoyed how the characters were fleshed out within the storylines and how the author brought them to life so vividly. I would highly recommend this book and am off to find more from the author!
On reflection, I honestly feel this not to be her best. I definitely needed to suspend belief to read to the end.
I am left puzzled over two things. First, I don’t believe it qualifies as a “psychological“ thriller at all. It’s much more about exposition of lies and deception within and near to a family.
Second, the sudden turn around request for a spot of child sitting, staggeringly agreed to by one of the “wronged” characters In an emergency, defied belief. This thoroughly spoilt the final quarter for me because I just couldn’t get past my own incredulity.
I award 3 stars because Kim can still intrigue and lead you by the hand, accomplished writer that she is.
