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 moment of uncertainty. The drunken one-night stand from her bachelorette weekend, the sexy guy who wouldn't give her his real name, didn't really mean anything, she keeps telling herself. She puts the incident out of her mind, and now believes she wants to be with Bruce for the rest of her life. Their honeymoon on a luxurious, secluded island in Maine will be the beginning of their blissful lives together.

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.

Nope

The only excitement this one had was watching then ending of the book approaching. I read wonderful things about Peter Swanson and ordered the book. I listened and after a few hours felt it was only one chapter from being exciting. I groaned with every “he said” “she said” I’ll give him another book chance but I was not happy with any of the story theme

Really enjoyed this

Narration was great, the plot had good twists and turns. Should be made into a movie or series.

Disappointed

Such a slow start. The storyline has potential but it was overall a pretty painful listen.

Agony!

I've listened to two other books by Mr. Swanson and liked both. This book, however, dragged and had characters acting in unrealistic ways. There were far too many so and so "said" instead of using other dialogue descriptors. The narrator irked me - I couldn't decipher any of the male characters from one another and it was almost as bad for the female characters. I'm also wondering if all of Mr. Swanson's novels involve cheating woman as all three of the ones I've listened to so far do and it's getting a bit boring.

Slow start.

The narrator did a pretty good job. The story line was very slow at the beginning and I was unsure if I had started a romance novel. It was fairly predictable with a few short spots of intrigue. Not a favourite but passed the time well.

Oh Peter....not your best effort!

This story sounds like something completed in a weekend. It didn't have the twists, turns or surprises I've come to love from Peter Swanson. The female narrator is good but the male voices are laughable. The story comes with poor description. How many times do we need to hear about white shirts and khakis? I LOVED 8 Perfect Murders and look forward to listening to Peters next novel.....hopefully it will be reminiscent of that book. I'm truly sorry that I was so disappointed with this one.
