Every Vow You Break

Morrow. Mar. 2021. 320p. ISBN 9780062980038. $27.99. SUSPENSE
Marriage vows are meant to be kept, but what if you broke them right before your wedding? Isn’t that what a bachelorette party is for? Abigail Baskin has found the perfect man—intelligent, affectionate, and wealthy. Millionaire Bruce Lamb didn’t exactly sweep her off her feet, but Abigail is sure he’s the one. At least, she’s sure marrying a responsible man will be good for her. But right before the wedding, she sees her one-night stand—he’s stalked her across the country. She keeps it a secret, not wanting to ruin her wedding or the honeymoon on an isolated private island Bruce has planned. But Abigail doesn’t know that Bruce has secrets of his own. As the honeymoon proceeds, strange things happen. Abigail notices she and another guest are the only women on the island and fears someone is conspiring against them. Not sure whom she can trust, she wonders if she should have married Bruce.
VERDICT Swanson’s (Eight Perfect Murders) new novel is a good match with Lucy Foley’s psychological wedding thriller, The Guest List. Readers will bask in the creepiness of being stranded on a remote island, considering how far some might go to punish those who break sacred promises.
