Author: Elena Wilkes

Publication Date: August 26, 2020

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

The Man I Married is a twisty thriller. The first half of the book I was trying to figure out what was going to happen. The first half is really building the story and giving background. It is interesting but the typical thriller starts in the second half. The second half is a lot faster paced and an interesting thriller.

Lucy meets Paul and they quickly fall in love and get married. Then Lucy starts catching Paul lying and starts questioning everything. Lucy is left wondering what is true? Lucy doesn’t know what is going on. Who can Lucy trust and how can she find out the truth?

I recommend this book to anyone that likes domestic thrillers. The Man I Married is Elena Wilke’s debut novel. I cannot wait to read her future novels.

Thank you NetGalley and Hera Books for The Man I Married.

About the author

Elena Wilkes grew up in Walsall in the West Midlands and then worked for eighteen years in H.M Prison Service. The people she met there provided the basis for all her novels.

Many of the prisoners there came across as very ordinary people who had committed the most appalling crimes but would, one day, walk straight back on the streets.

This begged the question: how much do we know about anyone, really? The people who live among us may seem no different from us at all, but when you scratch a little deeper, you realize they hold some very dark secrets.

  1. Ohh, sounds very interesting! I like the idea of someone’s dark secrets!
    At this moment I am watching the series ”Dexter” and I am thrilled! He seems like a normal person… but deep inside and behind the ”normal” hides many dark secrets!


    1. I hope the library gets it. It is already out in the US and I think the UK. I think there’s only an English version now but it might be translated at some point. That’s impressive you can read in two languages.
