About the book:

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 GirlBehind Closed Doors and Date Night will be utterly gripped.

Just Married by Kiersten Modglin is listed as a psychological thriller which I can see, mostly. I thought that this one had a touch of a horror vibe to it too though as it was rather creepy at times being one that you may not want to read after dark.

Grace and Ryan are a young couple who married six months earlier but had to postpone taking a honeymoon at the time. Ryan has found a cabin for rent that he thinks would be the perfect getaway with privacy and beautiful surroundings.

After arriving Grace and Ryan are enjoying their time away and their time with each other until they take a walk in the woods and come across a homeless man camping. Grace is immediately concerned with their safety but Ryan is sure he is harmless. But when things begin to happen near the cabin Grace  is sure the man is responsible.

Just Married is the first book I’ve picked up from this author and boy was I glad I did. This one was incredibly tense and chilling and I couldn’t stop reading after I started. I always enjoy when there are plenty of twists in a novel but I think it’s even more fun when I finished thinking forget the twists, that was just twisted period. If this one had been a bit longer with a little more depth it probably would have been five stars but it was still great at the shorter length leaving me to rate this at four and a half stars.

I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
