The Bridesmaid Book Review

The Bridesmaid
‘full of twists and turns which makes the book a real page turner’

A Love Affair... A Secret... A Murder...

Haddley, a quiet English village in the Midlands. Kelly Evans -- a sixteen year old girl -- is brutally murdered. Her body is discovered by a neighbor, and the police are called in to investigate. Kelly was young and beautiful, and her untimely death comes as a shock to all who knew her … or does it really?

The dark side of Kelly’s personality soon comes to light. She was ruthless and promiscuous, and stopped at nothing to get what she wanted, even if it meant wrecking other people’s lives. She made quite a few enemies, and among close friends and neighbors are some who might have had a very good reason for wanting to get rid of her.

The investigation takes a new and unexpected turn when a locket goes missing, and a connection is made with the twenty-year-old murder of a wartime movie star. As the police search the past for answers and gradually piece the mystery together, the respectable veneer starts cracking exposing a web of jealousy, sexual intrigue and deceit.

My Take on the Book:

Wow, this book really was an eye opener to a lot of things that can go on in a town! And the strange part is that there are so many suspects because Kelly was not a good person, but she was a person who deserved better. She was pregnant with a married man's baby, but he isn't the one who killed her.

The killer will really shock you and the worst shock is that as the book ends, no one will find out who the killer is. But you will want to read this book to discover why and how a 16 year old girl could bring a whole town to it's knee's and be so problematic to a lot of adult lives.

I don't blame kids for mistakes, I blame adults who know better. But still, the story will shock you down to the core! A must read if you love mysteries and love to solve them!

Happy Reading!

"The real gem of this particular novel is the excellent characters that have been created and each one of them you will know in your own life. The insight of how these people think and react to each other is first class. A true reflection of life in suburbia." - Beck Valley Books 

"If you are looking for a book full of twists and turns, then you need to check out The Bridesmaid: A Mystery. It will keep you guessing until the end. It is full of surprises. You think you know who is guilty one moment, and the next you think it is someone else. In fact, you will probably find yourself thinking that each character is guilty at some point in the book." - Kelli R. Guilbeau 

"I just couldn't put this book down. I felt hooked into the story from the first page. I really liked that most of the characters in the book had a reason for why they could have been the killer but that there wasn't one that was an outright frontrunner. I was left guessing to the end." - taken from
I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.
