You love him. You’ll do anything for him. But do you really know him?This is the story of Lucy and Paul.
They met. They fell deeply in love. They got married.
Lucy thought that she had everything she wanted.
Until she found the photograph from Paul’s past life, read the text messages he’s so desperately trying to hide. Until she uncovered Paul’s darkest secrets.
Now Lucy realises she doesn’t really know her husband. She doesn’t know if she can trust her own mind. She doesn’t know the lengths Paul would go to keep his perfect life.
And worst of all, she doesn’t know that she’s in danger…
A gripping, dark psychological thriller with an absolutely nail-biting ending that will keep you hooked – the perfect read for fans of Behind Closed Doors, Mark Edwards and Lisa Jewell.
There is nothing better than a wickedly dark psychological thriller and The Man I Married fits the bill perfectly. It will have you questioning everything and most likely scrutinising your own relationship before taking the plunge! It is an intense read with some really good twists and turns to spice things up.
Elena Wilkes has crafted a story that really gets under your skin. In a genre that is saturated with this type of story, I really enjoyed Elena Wilkes take on it. The mystery surrounding Paul and his previous relationship, does make it stand out above others and brings with it a point of difference.
The characters are well rounded and developed and although I was not really a fan of any of them, they have been well written and evoke many emotions within you. They are also very believable and this for me is more important than whether I was able to connect with them.
The Man I Married is a slow burn to begin with as everything is laid out, but it still had me glued to the pages desperately wanting to know how it was all going to unfold. The second half picks up the pace and has you flicking the pages a lot quicker and this is when it really gets the heart racing!
As a debut novel, I think Elena Wilkes has done a great job with this story. It has been very well researched, plotted and although there are a couple of loose ends that are not tied up, still makes this a compelling and enjoyable read. Elena Wilkes is one to watch in the psychological thriller genre and I will definitely be on the lookout for more books from her in the future.
