Alice has spent ages planning her perfe t wedding day, but when Ben is arrested at the reception her whole world comes crashing down. Who is the man she married? More to the point, can she really trust him with her life? 
Till death do us part had me gripped from it's first sentence. Just when you think you have it the plot twists and your left guessing right until the last moment.

For months, Alice has been stressing over her wedding, planning it down to the tiniest detail (you wonder if she suffers from anxiety or is just a perfectionist). She pulls it off though, and the day is a beautiful success, going down without a hitch- unless you count the groom getting arrested for murder during the reception. Her new husband, Ben, assures her it's just a crazy misunderstanding, and Alice desperately wants to believe him. As small lies and secrets from Ben's history start to come out, though, Alice wonders what else Ben may have hidden from her? 

If you've read books like The Last Mrs. Parrish or The Temp, then you think you know what to expect from Till Death Do Us Part. Domestic thrillers are flooding the market, and they have their formula down pat. However, Till Death Do Us Part is a very good entry in the genre,  and might surprise you after all. There's less of the unreliable narrator that you get from authors like B.A. Paris (whose books are good, don't get me wrong, but confused women get a bit tiring after a while- give me some empowerment!). Men aren't often the authors of this specific type of suspense/thriller, and Stephen Edger proves you don't have to be female to write decent female characters.

This book had so many twists and turns, half the time I didn't know whether I was coming or going. But I mean that in a good way! I was left guessing until the very end, and even what I thought was going to happen didn't. The ending took me by total surprise. I recommend this book if you love suspense and trying to untangle who the real culprit is.

Very good read

Surprising end and the person who killed kerry was unexpected.

Really enjoyed it and stayed up all night reading it really made you think her husband did it and the book makes you think that you never really know anyone...

Thank you to the publisher for sending me an ARC of this book
Thank god I never dreamed about my wedding when I was little.  This book was intriguing.  The words would crawl under your skin.  After reading it, you'd definitely think twice about getting married.

I love all Stephen Edger's books and cannot fault the skill of his writing.

He gets you involved in the story line straight away, holds your interest throughout and the pace of the story just 'grabbed me' and I soon got involved with all the characters.

Overall I loved this book, found it difficult to put down and I would definitely recommend.  It would be interesting to see if Stephen does a sequel to this story in the future.

Thank you to Netgalley and Harper Impulse Killer Reads for giving me the opportunity to read this brilliant book.

I received an ARC of this book thanks to Net Galley and publisher Killer Reads in exchange for an honest review.

Oh dear, another thriller I absolutely love until the ending. I am so disappointed to not be able to rate this book more highly because it started off so well. This is a thriller about a woman whose husband gets arrested for murder on their wedding day and this is such a fantastic premise for a thriller in my eyes. The main character was very well-written and I really felt for her as she had to navigate the horror of having her wedding spoiled by something so out of the ordinary. The other characters varied from alright to somewhat flat but in general, the writing was compelling and I was invested in the story. Not a ton happens during the middle section admittedly but my interest in the protagonist and the situation kept me reading.

Sadly I did not find the solution a satisfying one. Without giving too much away. there are two components to the conclusion of this mystery. The first one was decent enough and I actually would have preferred it if that character was responsible for the whole thing. The second one involved a character I forgot existed which is a massive problem. I can't really be shocked by something if I have no idea who the person it involves is. I really wish the ending of this had been different as it had huge potential and I enjoyed the other 75% of the book enormously.

Overall, this isn't a bad book by any means and I would definitely be interested in checking out more from the author. He crafts an interesting situation and populates it with decent characters. It's just a shame that the payoff wasn't as good as the set-up.

Overall Rating: 3/5

It is the first book that I've read from the author and possibly won't be the last. Till Death Do Us Part certainly is a gripping read. It starts really good and I was immediately hooked. The characters are okay though I question most of Alice's decision throughout the story. There are few twists and turns that I didn't anticipate which make it more enjoyable to read. Overall, a solid mystery thriller.

Till Death Do Us Part by Stephen Edger is next up on my TO READ list. Its getting rave reviews and I am so excited to read it. Other readers have commented that its a fast-paced story, offers lots of twists and turns and is gripping from beginning to end. Sounds perfect!

Here’s what you need to know:

Alice Tandy has dreamed of her wedding since she was a little girl. The perfect venue, the perfect dress, the perfect groom. It’s all going exactly to plan.

But then her whole world comes tumbling down. Just as she and her new husband Ben are cutting their wedding cake, three policemen storm in and arrest Ben. Alice looks on in horror, unable to comprehend what is happening. Did they say murder?

The next day, Ben is released on bail, but for Alice, the nightmare is only just beginning. And as more details about the murder of Kerry Valentine emerge she starts to realise that everyone around her is keeping secrets. Can she trust anyone? And who really killed Kerry?

I love psychological thrillers with page-turning suspense!

When reviewing this one, I find myself contrasting Stupid Character Syndrome with Entertainment Value.

The book is highly entertaining.  I definitely wanted to know if he did it, if he didn’t do it who did, and how it would all play out.

But, oh, our main character was horrendously, would-slap-her-in-real-life Stupid.  I understood literally none of the choices she made.  Hubby gets arrested at the wedding?  Have the reception anyway because he’s soooooooooooooooo trustworthy they’ll surely let him out in a minute.   Total randos start spilling tea on this man you trust implicitly?  Yeah, sure…I’ll go chat you up in a strange place.  Find out accused-of-murder hubby just might be hiding something?  Let me give you some marital advice ‘cause I’ve got this down!

Oof.

But, yes, it was entertaining as could be and the who was a bit surprising – the details even more so.  But even that got stupid.  Entertainingly so, but stupid.

Definitely a beach read!

I love all of Stephen Edger’s books and this is no exception. A fast paced storyline that grips you from the first page and the characters of Alice and Tara are really well written. I love the way the author keeps you engaged and you just want to finish the book to see if you have guessed the ending correctly. I also didn’t want the book to end, a sign of a great book!!! I highly recommend all of Stephen’s books.

I thought this book had a good start which grabbed my attention. The pace of the story was good and it kept me guessing all the way through. I read a lot of these types of books and didn't guess who had done it even though I had several suspicions throughout.

I found it a very easy read and all of the characters were well described with enough information to create a picture in my mind.

I really enjoyed this book and the way it was written.

Alice Tandy is in the middle of her dream wedding when the police arrest her husband for murder. Alice can’t believe her ears or eyes. The next day Ben is released on bail, but Alice’s nightmare is just beginning. The more she learns about victim Kerry Valentine, the more confused Alice becomes. Is her husband guilty? Who can she really trust and even more importantly, is her own life in jeopardy

Read and reviewed in exchange for a free copy in exchange for a free copy from NetGalley. I *loved* this book and was gripped by the story. I really liked Alice and Tara, and was desperate to know what was happening. The book was really well written, although I'm uncertain about the ending and how the conclusion fitted with some of the description in the first chapter. However, a great book!
