BLOG TOUR - The Wedding Night



The Wedding Night: An absolutely unputdownable family drama packed with secrets and suspense


Whatever doubts I've had about my fiancé, I'm determined this will be the happiest day of my life. I smooth the expensive white silk of my perfect dress and retouch my make-up, trying to cover the dark circles under my eyes. But when I go to find my daughter, her room is empty. My beautiful girl has vanished.

My fiancĂ© William is devastated as I force our guests to leave. My hands are shaking but as I stand amidst the wilting flowers and the discarded champagne glasses, I swear I’ll stop at nothing to find my daughter.

Crying in William’s arms, I try to remember that he just wants what is best for me. Even if Tess has been a difficult teenager, he’s loved her like his own, welcomed us into this beautiful home, the ivy-covered stone house nestled at the end of the tree-lined driveway.

Then my best friend tells me she saw Tess sobbing before the wedding. I thought I’d built a perfect new family for my little girl, but what if I’ve brought her into terrible danger? I remember the guest I only recognised from old photos. William swore it was all in the past. But was he lying?

I think about the unimaginable secret William told me and I swore to keep forever. Could Tess have found out? Will the truth help me find my daughter? Or will it break us all?

A totally unputdownable family drama about the secrets that lurk under the glossy surface of a perfect new life. Perfect for fans of Sally Hepworth, Liane Moriarty and Kerry Fisher.

Amy has a second chance at happiness as she prepares to marry William. Amy and her daughter Tess have moved into William’s home with his son Hal. Amy loves William and although she is excited about their future together, doubts begin to settle in and she starts to wonder if William is keeping secrets from her. Meanwhile, Hal and Tess are struggling to settle into a sibling relationship. 

Amy’s doubts begin as her life begins to undergo changes. While these changes start off for the better, her doubts begin to grow. While this story is told mostly from Amy and Hal’s points of view, there is a third perspective, and this is where the mystery of William’s secrets begins to unfold. How intriguing!

Shockingly, Tess soon goes missing and of course Amy is desperate to find her. Where is Tess and how does her disappearance if at all tie into William’s secret past? If you want a book that will keep you invested from the very beginning, with a mysterious thread running through, then this is the book for you. Filled with angst and a surprising ending, Clare Boyd has written another excellent book 

Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.


Clare writes all her books in a little green shed at the bottom of the garden. Before becoming a writer, she enjoyed a career in television, as a researcher in documentaries and then as a script editor in drama at the BBC and Channel Four, where her love of storytelling took hold
