Book Review: Every Vow You Break by Peter Swanson

Peter Swanson has become an auto-read author for me and his newest thriller was no exception!


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 drunken one-night stand on her bachelorette weekend. She puts the incident—and the sexy guy who wouldn’t give her his real name—out of her mind, and now believes she wants to be with Bruce for the rest of her life.

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.

My Review:

What started out as a typical domestic thriller, Every Vow You Break took a wild turn at the end of the book and I loved every minute of it! With topics of love, marriage, and infidelity, Bruce and Abigail are all set to walk down the isle and then leave for a surprise honeymoon location. However, Abigail is in for the shock of her life!

The character development in this one was just ok, but the plot was great. I would definitely call this a popcorn thriller, it was fun to read and hard to put down. The ending is absolutely bananas, and while I have heard other reviewers mention that it is unrealistic, I viewed it from a metaphorical point of view. I can’t say much more without spoiling it, but I really liked it and what I felt it represented. I will continue to read whatever Swanson puts out!
