By T.M. Logan
Published by Zaffre

Synopsis: Ed finally meets his daughter's boyfriend for the first time. Smart, successful and handsome, Ryan appears to be a real catch. Then Abbie announces their plan to get married.

There's just one problem. Ed thinks Ryan is lying to them.

All of Ed's instincts tell him his daughter is in terrible danger - but no-one else can see it. With the wedding date approaching fast, Ed sets out to uncover Ryan's secrets, before it's too late…

How did this book end up in my hands? I read a serialisation of this novel via The Pigeonhole app.

Was it a page-turner? At  448 pages, the book is not short. Having established that, I can’t explain how I read each instalment in minutes. I was always surprised when I reached the last screen so soon after starting.

Did the book meet my expectations? The synopsis was right up my street so I knew I would enjoy it. I didn’t expect to enjoy it quite so much though, which is always a pleasant surprise. I loved the way the author made me doubt and second-guess myself every step of the way. And that ending? Chillingly perfect!

Three words to describe it. Chilling. Gripping. Tense.

Do I like the cover? Weirdly, the cover makes me think of Gatsby so it’s slightly distracting. I like it though.

Have I read any other books by the same author? No, but they’ve been on my wish list for a while and now I’m more motivated than ever to get reading!
