The Marriage by K.L. Slater

 

Ten years ago he killed my son. Today I married him.

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…

My Review


The subject of this book piqued my interest, and tying to place myself in their shoes.
Wow! Marrying the man that killed your son, not usual! How about having your only son marrying a woman twenty years older than him. The author gives us a story with all of these happenings, and more.
I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop, but when they began to fall I never saw most of it coming. Talk about being blind sided!
A page turner for sure, I loved the way the author wove this read, and kept me holding my breath!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Bookoutour and was not required to give a positive review.
