The Widow Bride

Carey Baldwin

As I look down to the beautiful arch set up on the beach for our wedding, I have to stop myself running into Blake’s arms. He’s been the only light in the darkness of my grief. I’m sure I’m making the right decision… aren’t I?

When Blake insisted we keep our elopement a secret, I agreed. But, now, it feels wrong to walk down the aisle between empty chairs.

My first husband’s last words to me echo in my head. “Find someone who loves you as much as I do when I’m gone.” I never thought I could do as he asked. Until I met Blake. He’s the only one who truly understands what I’ve been through, soothing my pain by showering me with gifts and affection. So why do I feel so uneasy?

As I step in front of my husband-to-be, I think back to my last conversation with my first husband’s sister. Should I have listened when she tried to tell me about Blake’s past?

Maybe it’s just wedding day nerves… But as Blake puts the ring on my finger, I can’t tell if it’s excitement or fear as a shiver runs down my spine when he says, “Finally, you’re mine.”

Then I remember my sister-in-law’s warning. But it’s too late to turn back now.

Marrying him is the only option because I have secrets of my own.

Blake may think he knows me, but he has no idea who he’s really dealing with…

A completely gripping psychological thriller which will have you reading late into the night until you reach the final shocking twist. Perfect for fans of Gone Girl, The Wife Between Us and The Perfect Marriage.
