Every Vow You Break
Summary: A bride’s dream honeymoon becomes a nightmare when a man with whom she’s had a regrettable one-night stand shows up in this electrifying psychological thriller from the acclaimed author of Eight Perfect Murders.
Abigail Baskin never thought she’d fall in love with a millionaire. Then she met Bruce Lamb. He’s a good guy, stable, level-headed, kind—a refreshing twist from her previous relationships.
But right before the wedding, Abigail has a drunken one-night stand on her bachelorette weekend. She puts the incident—and the sexy guy who wouldn’t give her his real name—out of her mind, and now believes she wants to be with Bruce for the rest of her life.
Then the mysterious stranger suddenly appears—and Abigail’s future life and happiness are turned upside down. He insists that their passionate night was the beginning of something much, much more. Something special. Something real—and he’s tracked her down to prove it.
Does she tell Bruce and ruin their idyllic honeymoon—and possibly their marriage? Or should she handle this psychopathic stalker on her own? To make the situation worse, strange things begin to happen. She sees a terrified woman in the night shadows, and no one at the resort seems to believe anything is amiss… including her perfect new husband.
Traveling With T’s Thoughts:
I still remember the pure joy I felt when I finished The Kind Worth Killing. That book was something else and I was SO eager to read more by Peter Swanson.
And so I have kept my eye out for his books- and have read and reviewed Her Every Fear, All The Beautiful Lies, and Eight Perfect Murders.
While Her Every Fear and All The Beautiful Lies were perfectly fine- just nowhere near as good as TKWK- Eight Perfect Murders began to try my patience with Peter and making me wonder if, as far as for me, that he will be a one-hit wonder. I mean how many times can I say a book by him is just not as good as TKWK?
But nothing, and I mean NOTHING prepared me for the disappointment of Every Vow You Break.
I really thought we might be back in business with this book. The blurbs sounded great, the cover was kickin’, and I was ready to settle in for a good book.
And then… it started off ok. I thought Abigail was a bit too flighty and maybe she needed to really think about did she want to get married- but nothing too bad.
Then they get to the island and the best word I can think of for what happens next is FAR-FREAKING-FETCHED.
It just didn’t make sense. I mean it did- in a severely twisted and sick way- but REALLY- it was just not good.
I finished the book and would LOVE to discuss with with others to see if they had the same reaction I did- but for me, this book did not even come close to the genius I know Peter Swanson can write since I’ve read TKWK. I would have even settled for the average-ness of Her Every Fear and All The Beautiful Lies.
Bottom Line: For me, I’m not recommending this book.
