Blurb: A whirlwind romance. A perfect marriage.

Hannah Reilly has seized her chance at happiness.Until the day her husband fails to come home . . .

 

The more questions Hannah asks, the fewer answers she finds. But are the secrets that Mark has beenkeeping designed to protect him or protect her?

 

And can you ever really know what happened before you met?

Review: Oh my god I am utterly shocked. I've just finished Before We Met by Lucie Whitehouse. I sometimes don't read blurbs and this was one that I never read. The cover was what drew me in and I honestly had no clue on what I would be reading.

 

Straight away you are submerged into a world of twisted minds, anxiety and fantastic writing which quickly engrosses you. There aren't many characters in the novel and it's mostly based on husband and wife Mark and Hannah Reilly, but the way the plot falls makes it perfect that you're just really seeing these two and no one else.

Narrated by Hannah you are straight away her best mate and you feel every emotion available for this lady.

 

I can not stress enough how much I enjoyed this book, I didn't want to put it down at all I ended up waking up with my kindle on my chest last night as I was that tired but refused to put it down. The shock factor this novel brings is utterly eye opening and extremely unexpected which makes it fantastic.

 

I recommend this book to anyone wanting a good read with depth and drama.
