“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.” – Amazon
Now what I’m about to write may make you wonder why it was so good, but hang in there, and I’ll get to it. 🙂
I knew what was going on from the beginning. Whenever I say that I know there are people out there going, Yea, I believe you, Kim. Believe me or not, I think if you do read a lot of suspense, thrillers, and horror (or watch it), there’s a good chance you will too. But the way Swanson wrote tropes that have been done numerous times before made Every Vow You Break feel fresh.
Even with knowing what was happening, Swanson slowly brought up the creep factor and once the big reveal happened things got really intense. In so many stories/movies the heroine makes so many horrible choices, and while Abigail does make some, she really had me rooting for her instead of wishing she would die.
While neither Every Vow You Break nor Eight Perfect Murders had an insane twist I didn’t see coming, Swanson adds just enough interesting angles to keep me reading his material, and I look forward to reading what he comes up with next.
