The Marriage Trap by Sheryl Browne – review.


My husband has been keeping secrets for a long time. He thinks I don’t know what he does outside of this house. But I know everything…

Karla watches silently as Jason hurriedly packs his belongings into a suitcase. She knows that her stillness is unnerving him as she watches his every move from the doorway of their bedroom.

Clothes are screwed up and packed into the case, along with a watch she bought him for his last birthday and his precious laptop. He takes everything from his bedside table. Everything except the framed wedding photo, which now stands alone. Karla strains to see the smiling faces in the photo. If only she knew then what she knows now.

‘I’ve fallen in love with someone else,’ he’d said to her, just moments earlier. The brutality of those words hit Karla hard and she struggled to breathe as she took in each word in turn.

You may think you know what Karla will do next. But you’ll be wrong. Because Karla isn’t who you think she is. Only she knows what’s about to happen. And you will never see it coming.

My thoughts

Loved, loved, loved, this book!

As I hurried through the pages, eager to unravel the mysteries that the book was holding, I couldn’t help feeling sad at the tragic elements that were revealed. (Not saying a word :-). No spoilers here – haha).

I found myself quickly flicking between Karla and Jason’s chapters with ease. I needed to know more about them, and fast. As with all Sheryl’s books I’ve read previously, I couldn’t put it down. And, as always, she writes a killer prologue and the one in this book was no exception.

I loved the scenes with the children, they were so realistic. I was almost convinced I’d been eavesdropping in a family’s home as I read them. Bravo and fantastic. Looking forward to the next one now.

A great psychological thriller full of tragedy that will keep you guessing. Great read!
