The Marriage by K.L. Slater book review-Blogtober day 7


Ten years ago he killed my son. Today I married him.

Ten years ago my darling son Jesse was murdered and our perfect family was destroyed. My strong, handsome boy, so full of life, became a memory, a photo I carried with me everywhere.

But today I’m finally close to finding happiness again. My ash-blonde hair has been curled into ringlets. Carefully placed white flowers frame my delicate features. The small, drab chapel has been prettied up with white satin, and there are tiny red hearts scattered on the small table where I will soon sign the register with my new husband.

The man who killed my son.

My friends and family can’t understand it. My neighbours whisper in the street whenever I walk past. How can I love a man like Tom?

They don’t really know me at all…


The story– 4/5

Setting of the book– 2/5

Smexy Times?– not graphic


Another disappointing “thriller”, but a great family drama. Expected the whole time some twists and turns, but no…I don’t know what this new marketing trend is, to advertise family dramas as psychological thrillers, but it’s getting annoying. So the book really was a beautiful family story of forgiveness and second chances. It was good, the writing was enjoyable, the multiple POVs sometimes felt a little bit forced but that’s not critical. Overall it was okay, would reccomend it.
