The Marriage Trap by Sheryl Browne | Review

The Marriage Trap | Sheryl Browne | Bookouture | Pub: July 30, 2019 | Pages: 300

I’ve loved every book I’ve read by Sheryl Browne! They are always entertaining and quick reads! Sheryl is a master it is writing psychological/domestic thrillers and this one falls in the same category.

However, having said that, this book is my least favorite from Sheryl. I was quite underwhelmed.

This book was repetitious, and monotonous for the first 75% which made me almost DNF this book, but I powered through. Sometimes books can redeem themselves with the ending, but it wasn’t the case with this one. In addition, the character was absolutely unlovable and vile, they were getting on my nerves at some point. Usually, you can empathize or root for at least one of the characters, but I wasn’t in this case.

There are many twists and turns, but I ended up predicting most of them before they occurred. I still recommend reading Sheryl Browne books, maybe just not this one.

Thank you to Bookouture for providing me with an electronic ARC of this book via NetGalley. As usual, my reviews are my honest and unbiased opinions.


My husband has been keeping secrets for a long time. He thinks I don’t know what he does outside of this house. But I know everything…

Karla watches silently as Jason hurriedly packs his belongings into a suitcase. She knows that her stillness is unnerving him as she watches his every move from the doorway of their bedroom.

Clothes are screwed up and packed into the case, along with a watch she bought him for his last birthday and his precious laptop. He takes everything from his bedside table. Everything except the framed wedding photo, which now stands alone. Karla strains to see the smiling faces in the photo. If only she knew then what she knows now.

‘I’ve fallen in love with someone else,’ he’d said to her, just moments earlier. The brutality of those words hit Karla hard and she struggled to breathe as she took in each word in turn.

You may think you know what Karla will do next. But you’ll be wrong. Because Karla isn't who you think she is. Only she knows what's about to happen. And you will never see it coming.
