One marriage. One lie. Two sides to the story.
The moment Vivien meets Ashton, she knows she will be his wife and absolutely nothing will stop her.
Powerful, rich and from a good family, Ashton is everything Vivien is not. So, she molds herself into Ashton’s perfect soulmate.
Pouring his favorite vintage wine, whispering ‘I love you’ over dinner in front of friends and biting her tongue when she disagrees with him are simple sacrifices for the perfect marriage she has always craved.
When people begin to notice the bruises on her cheek, she holds their stares. There is no cry for help from Vivien. She simply keeps her mouth shut and lets the gossip continue.
If you saw Vivien nursing a black eye, you might be forgiven for thinking what everyone else does—that she is the victim in her marriage, but you’d be wrong. Vivien and Ashton’s life together is much more complicated than that. You will never guess the true story behind Vivien’s undying devotion to her husband. Nor could you possibly predict what she does next…
Perfect for fans of Gone Girl, Behind Closed Doors and The Perfect Couple. If you enjoy reading twisted psychological thrillers with bags of suspense, then you’ll love The Newlyweds from USA TODAY bestselling author Arianne Richmonde.
You never really know what goes on behind closed doors in a couples relationship. What is perceived and presented to be a perfect marriage on the outside, can be anything but on the inside and Arianne Richmonde’s, The Newlyweds, delves into this and so much more!
The story plays out like a movie, and the reader is taken on a journey into the seemingly perfect life of Vivien, a volunteer charity worker and Ashton, a surgeon. Recently married, the couple are the envy of their friends but, behind the scenes, it is a different story when domestic abuse is implied. But there is more to this story than meets the eye…
The Newlyweds is one twisted read that caught me off guard and had me completely in the dark as to how it was going to unfold. Normally I can pick where things are heading in these type of stories but, Arianne Richmonde outsmarted me throughout, as each unexpected twist she revealed outdid the last!
Arianne Richmonde has created a thrilling tale that will have you hooked and reading long into the night. My second book from her, I really enjoy her style of storytelling and I look forward to reading what she comes up with next. It was a pleasure to read and review The Newlyweds which I recommend.
