Publisher's 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.

No surprises and a little disappointing...

Swanson

I got hooked on Peter Swanson with his book The Kind Worth Killing. I don’t think he’s written anything so good since. This book is entertaining but still not as good. He set the bar so high I don’t know if he can ever attain that level again.
Back to this book. As I said, the story is entertaining. The topic is not a new one. Secrets to hide, a lodge located on a private island miles from the mainland. Completely cut off from civilization because there is no WiFi or phone service. The only landlines are kept in a locked office. If this sounds slightly predictable to you, you would be correct ! I’ve listened to quite a few books with this basic template. The names may change as well as the location but the outcome remains the same.
If you found this review helpful please indicate so.
Thank You.

Misogynistic Fantasy

Tom Nolan (WSJ) recommended this book so I pre-ordered and I was looking forward to listening on an upcoming car trip.
Shortly after it began, I had to go back to confirm that it had to be a male author. The main character is just too stupid for words, and the entire “mystery” hinges on the fact that she is basically a vapid weakling who allows herself to be gaslighted by one dominant male character after another.
The “resort” is entirely implausible, and again a man’s fantasy of power over women.
The narrator does a good enough job, but considering the high percentage of male characters to females and that doing male voices does not seem to be her strong suit, may not have been the best choice for this book.
If you’re a fan of rip-the-bodice romance novels of male domination this is the book for you. Otherwise, save your money.

I’m Not Sure What I Just Read...?

We all have a handful of them—writers like Peter Swanson. We’ve read all their books, and mostly we’ve enjoyed them. In my case, Peter Swanson even surprised me with one book I thought was a terrific, suspenseful, even original, modern crime drama (see “Before She Knew Him”). Mostly though, I read Peter Swanson’s books because they’re entertaining, usually have at least a minor twist, and provide an enjoyable afternoon of easy listening.

Let me insert here that Peter Swanson stands out from his peers in a BIG way when it comes to premise. I nearly always walk away wondering how an author with such promising ideas upon which to construct a solid mystery could only scratch the surface? Couldn’t he go deeper? Forget the worn-out, overused creepy neighbor or train stalker storylines. Mr. Swanson has some great plot ideas. He just doesn’t often do much with them.

And now we arrive at “Every Vow You Break”. If I didn’t recognize the lead female character as being straight from the Swanson mold, I might question whether he actually wrote this. I don’t even know if the most devoted Swanson fan would think this worth reading. Not only is the book ridiculous, but it is also boring.

Bottom line: Whatever this book is supposed to be, skip it. You aren’t missing anything.

Super dark, good narration

This book is super dark. It’s pretty much what you think as you get into the story but then it gets worse. It really catches the mentality of white privilege males that are extremely fragile when it comes to woman. This is not a book I could listen to again, I suggest getting it from the library before using a credit on this.
I hope this isn’t the authors fantasy but he sure makes his female characters dumb so I don’t think he likes them much.

boring

this book moves very slow. I fell asleep several times and was still able to figure out what was going on without rewinding. I was very disappointed because I normally like this author.

Wow!

This book surprised me. I was half way through and thought I knew what was happening but then it just kept twisting and turning. I couldn't stop listening to to this book. I really enjoyed suspense, especially in the second half of the story.

Fantastic story and the best narrator I’ve heard in a while!

The story was incredible! The narrator brought the story to life and was just as good as the book! OMGOSH she really knew how transform words on a page into a bone chilling, nail biting and suspenseful thriller! I loved it! 5+ stars!
