The perfect fiance

MY REVIEW

Having read the previous novel The Holiday by this author, and owning a two other books, which I haven’t yet read, I found this one more engaging than The Holiday. I will admit initially Ed was annoying me, was he really going too far, was Ryan really a not nice guy, or should I say too good to be true. Having raised 3 sons and a daughter, with my daughter I knew if I went against a boyfriend she would dig her heals in, so you accept your children’s choices and just hope.

Ed is a very over protective father of daughter Abby, seems he has never approved of any boyfriend she has had. So when after seven months of dating Ryan, she brings him to meet her parents, in the hope that he is approved. But Ed is sceptical, he watches Ryan. Just one look into Ryan’s eyes and Ed decides something is not right. No one else can see it, mum Claire and gran think Ryan is great. After all he has a good job, he has a psychology degree, a special constable, a volunteer at a hospice. What’s not to like? But is Ryan to good to be true.

What makes things worse for Ed is that same night, Ryan asks permission to marry Abby, there is nothing Ed can do, as he’s only asking out of politeness. To then find out that they want to get married in six weeks time, puts Ed even more on edge. He is then on a mission to prove that Ryan is not good, much to the disgust of Abby and Claire.

Told through the points of view of Ed, Claire, Abby and Ryan. The tension grows, from the opening scene we know someone is buried but who? Ed is on a mission, but is he wrong or right about Ryan.

A well plotted, story that gradually unfolds. I found this an engaging read from start to finish. With several twists and turns throughout. I certainly give this one ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ out of ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.

I would like to thank #netgalley and #Zaffre for an eARC of this book in exchange for an honest, fair and unbiased review.

    1. Initially I was getting really annoyed with Ed, also having been someone who has been taking Amytryptiline for a long time, wasn’t really the greatest drug to mention,especially as it was claimed he was taking 50mg if he had been his wife would have known, and he would have struggled to wake up of a morning. It takes quite a while to kick in then when it does you can just be totally out of it. But I did enjoy this one much better than The Holiday which I found too slow.

      1. I had no idea about that, but it does bug me generally when I come across something that hasn’t been fact-checked. From what I remember The Holiday was all about the last 20%.

      2. If someone has not take Amytryptiline 10mg would leave them feeling tired all the next day. At one stage I was on 240mg a night would take it around 6pm but it would still take until 11 to kick in, I was abused in the middle of the night by my ex husband whilst on it. Also took 5 overdoses trying to end my life because of that abuse, but even then it took ages to do anything and then everything would black out. Was at my Drs after one overdose, had taken the drugs at least 2 hrs earlier, remember him walking me down the corridor to check blood pressure etc, whilst waiting for ambulance, next thing was in hospital. I was put on it for fybromyalgia many years ago, I am currently trying to stop it as after 25 years it doesn’t seem to be helping me sleep, so see no point. It is also an anti depressant, lots of people don’t like taking it because of the leaving you tired the following day.
        Yes The Holiday was definitely all about the last 20% I think I like a faster pace, I want to be engaged, which The Catch did as I say except for Ed annoying me with the lengths he went to. As a mum of 4 I knew with my only daughter even if I wasn’t keen on her choice of partner best thing was to go along with it, I knew I’d I did that it would fizzle on it’s own. Lol
