The Wife’s Secret by Kerry Wilkinson @kerrywk @bookouture #bookreview

Hope you’re having a wonderful hump day book lovers!

Thrilled to share with you today my review for this twisted thriller! A huge thank you to Noelle for my invitation to the blog tour and to Kerry Wilkinson for his wonderful words!

The-Wifes-Secret-KindleCharley Willis was thirteen years old when her parents were killed in their family home and she was found hiding in a cupboard upstairs.

Fifteen years later, Charley is marrying Seth Chambers. It should be the happiest day of their lives, a chance for Charley to put her past behind her, but just hours after the ceremony, she is missing.

No one saw her leave. No one knows where she is.

One thing is for certain…Seth is about to discover he doesn’t really know the woman he just married. And his nightmare is only just beginning.

A totally gripping psychological thriller that will keep you reading until the very last jaw-dropping twist.

My Thoughts

What if after your bride says “I do,“ she has done disappeared???

Welcome to Seth’s life, after his bride goes missing during the reception…. turning his dream day into a nightmare… but would Charlie really run off? They were happy, weren’t they? Did somebody take her? But why? Seth knew Charlie had a bit of a past, but how well did he really know his wife?

This is a riveting thriller with short chapters that keep you glued to those pages! Told from multiple points of view, Seth in the present and Charlie in the past… this was a tremendously impactful and perfect way to tell or shall I say reveal the story…. because as layer after layer after layer was peeled away you began to see the true story right along with Seth… Seth was a very sympathetic character, I really felt for him, is confusion, his fear…. but as a seasoned veteran of the psychological thriller genre, I couldn’t help but question every move he made…. I mean a lot of times it is the husband, right? But is it this time? Or has Charlie‘s pass come back to haunt her?🤐

Charlie grew up in the spotlight as the child of a famous couple made infamous after a gruesome murder…. Charlie was then raised by her 22-year-old sister Martha, but this was not the only tragedy to strike this family…. now even though I do respect charlie’s right to privacy, if I were Seth I would’ve been brimming with questions and curiosity…. it baffles me that Seth wasn’t more inquisitive, but would that have solved anything? Would this have not happened? I’m not sure about that…. some secrets are so deeply buried that not even a nosy significant other can dig them out….

Kerry Wilkinson has fast become an automatic download for me, and this book just reinforces that! He has a way of setting the scene, bringing those characters to life, and keeping you on the edge of your seat…. there is nothing better than a twisty thriller that keeps you guessing with a jaw dropping ending…. but the cherry on top is when you can look back and see how all those puzzle pieces fit together, and how you missed all those clues! Stumped again!

For all you psychological thriller fans out there, this is a must read!

The Boardwalk by the Sea - Autumn Antics by Georgina TroyAutumn Antics (The Boardwalk by the Sea Book 2)

Being a part-time hand model can be tricky, especially when you have to deal with prima donnas like Megan Knight, a reality star whose meteoric rise has surprised everyone. Bella is happiest running her tiny antique business from the front room of her cottage on the boardwalk. To ensure she has enough income coming in, she also rents out two of her bedrooms and is hiding a secret crush on one of her lodgers. His name is Jack and he also happens to be her best friend Sacha’s brother.

If life wasn’t complicated enough, her world-travelling mother appears on her doorstep on the same evening that Jack’s ex-fiancée arrives on the boardwalk determined to win him back. Bella has a lot of thinking to do and soon discovers that not all gems sparkle.

My Thoughts

An adorable autumn read that will make you go awww🍃

This was a fun lighthearted story that takes place on the island of Jersey… this is an island that is part of the British Isles with a population of 76,000 according to Wikipedia… sounds like a lovely place, another place to add to my list of places to visit if I ever make it to the UK…

This is the second book in the series, but I did not read the first and had no problem following along… Bella is a hand model, she is also in love with one of her lodgers Jack… Bella is a lovely character and I loved her interactions with Megan a reality TV star with an ego… loved how a little time in Jersey brought Megan down to earth… I also loved her sweet friendship with Jack…. The two of them were so perfect for one another, but there were a couple obstacles… jacks psycho ex fiancé, As well as Sasha Bella’s BFF and Jack’s sister… so will they? Won’t they? You will need to read this book to find that out!

A fun fall story filled with fabulous characters, romance, and a beautiful setting🍁
