The days of their delayed honeymoon tick by and Jackson’s devotion transforms before Mary’s eyes into something more sinister. As her own mental state deteriorates under the pressure, Mary is left with only one question:
Can she save herself before her husband loves her to death?<?b>
Jackson And Mary are in the ‘Honeymooners’ Cabin for their postponed Honeymoon in Poconos, After there very brief romance and marriage. Jackson was working in Australia for 9 Months leaving straight after there wedding.
The Anniversary absorbed me from the explosive dark prologue and it wholly entertained me right to the conclusion. Although this slow-paced at first. I read this within a couple hours over 24 hours.
A passionate hot tale, interwoven with emotionally charged, terrorizing and powerful apprehension. This was a ingeniously crafted plot. It is not initially what it indicates at all. This novel is mutil-layered with many twists and turns that keeps you spellbinded, anxious and takes your breath away. There is secrets and surprises a plently with an awesome ending.
Mary the MC, is seemingly in a confused unstable state throughout, she is a flawed , delicate, compelling and an intriguing character. The author portrays Marys character flawlessly.
Jackson, Marys Hubsand has a many layers to him. Hes someone you hate to love. The author is able to keep our thoughts conflicted about him throughout.
This is a fantastic book. Highly recommend.
