Just Married by Kiersten Modglin – review.


When my husband found this perfect little cabin in the woods for our honeymoon, I couldn’t wait to get away. Just us in the middle of the forest, waking up every day in the trees, ending each night in the hot tub under the stars. But now I’m not sure that I know my husband at all…

I just wish we’d gone to the police when someone left a note on the doormat saying: She’s dead, you’re next. Ryan said I was overreacting, but I don’t understand why he won’t go to the cops now things are getting worse. Can I trust my husband?

I’ve known about the terrible thing that Ryan did for years and it’s been tearing me apart. Last night I told him I would always keep his secret. But is the man I married hiding something else from me?

Now someone has cut the phone lines and we’re trapped here. Ryan swears he has no idea what’s going on and just wants to keep us safe. I’m here alone in the middle of the dark forest with the man I thought I could trust. My heart is racing and there’s no one I can call…

My husband promised till death do us part. Am I about to find out what that means?

A heart-pounding, unbelievably twisty psychological thriller that will have you sleeping with the light on! Fans of Gone Girl, Behind Closed Doors and Date Night will be utterly gripped.

My thoughts

‘Just Married’ is a true heart-in-your-mouth thriller which I couldn’t put down. I lapped up the US location too. Gorgeous cabin in the forest? Yes, please. Who wouldn’t want to honeymoon in such an ideal location? But this tale isn’t an advert for the ideal wedding show. It’s a full-throttle thriller.

I loved the tension, the fear, and the unknown; I think that was the most terrifying aspect of the book. I also really enjoyed the perspectives of Ryan and Grace. I got to see everything from each point of view and was left trying to work out their couple dynamics.

This is for book fans who like a nail-biting read that will have them glued to the pages. The first chapter is explosive and once you’ve started, you won’t be able to stop!


Thanks for reading!
