It is difficult to empathize with the main character in Peter Swanson’s latest release, Every Vow You Break. Abigail is unsure she wants to marry Bruce but can’t dismiss the luxurious future she will have as the wife of a wealthy man. Her ambivalence solidifies during her Bachelorette Party when she meets a handsome stranger. She relates her misgivings to him and indulges herself in a last-minute one-night stand. She feels somewhat guilty about lying to Bruce, but not enough to compel her to tell him the truth before their wedding. For their honeymoon, her devoted and generous new spouse has arranged for them to stay on a friend’s private island resort. Just as the new bride begins to relax in the posh setting, she is dismayed to see a guest who looks very familiar. Abigail is wracked with guilty and senses a strange undercurrent at the resort that she can no longer ignore. Every Vow You Break stretches credulity and teeters on the edge of misogyny. Abigail’s character with her flexible moral code is not one that can be properly called a “protagonist.” Swanson’s previous effort, Eight Perfect Murders, also relies on improbable events but is more welcoming and respectful to the reader.
Thanks to the author, William Morrow and Edelweiss for an ARC in exchange for an unbiased review. ( )

This was a very middle of the road thriller to me. I thought the writing was good, so I definitely want to read more books by this author, and the characters were fine as well. The main issue I had was that I knew where this was going very early on a literally nothing surprised me. I'm fine with being able to predict some plot points in a mystery or thriller book. I think putting the pieces together can be a fun part of reading from this genre. But I still want something to surprise me and really nothing did in this book. And I'm usually not very good a predicting thrillers so if I wasn't surprised, other reads probably also won't be.

This is a pretty short book and I went in blind having not read the synopsis, which I think you need to do if you want any chance of being surprised by the events of this book. Because it was so easy to predict, the story felt unoriginal and in some ways it kind of was. I know I want to read [b:Eight Perfect Murders|52225186|Eight Perfect Murders|Peter Swanson||71665754] by this author and hopefully I'll like that more. This wasn't a bad book, I just didn't find it to be surprising or thrilling. ( )

I enjoyed the writing and the pacing of this book but the plot wasn't very good. Just obviously written by a man and many times I wanted to roll my eyes at the story. It was good enough though that I wanted to keep reading to see what would happen, but I was dissappointed that it continued to go exactly the way I assumed it would by the third chapter instead of taking some kind of twist or horror element.

This started off interesting, but went off the rails a little at the end. ( )

I decided to read Peter Swanson's Every Vow You Break on the strength of how much I enjoyed his previous book, Eight Perfect Murders. I have to admit that I did have a couple of reservations. First, the title. I found the Police's mega-hit Every Breath You Take to be downright creepy and could never understand why anyone in their right mind would want to play it at their wedding. It's stalker music, folks, and Swanson's book title directly refers to it. My second reservation was my spotty track record with domestic thrillers. Especially in this subgenre, if there's not at least one character I can like, chances are slim that I'm going to like the book.

Well, my reaction to Every Vow You Break was decidedly lukewarm. To begin with, I had to wade through all of Abigail Baskin's previous relationships in order to understand how different Bruce Lamb was. All that did was make me care less and less about Abigail. Sooner or later, Abigail's going to find fault with anything no matter how perfect it originally was. Her drunken one-night stand made me roll my eyes because it was so obvious something was going to go wrong, and even Bruce seemed too bland and too good to be true, no matter how much money he had.

Okay. I didn't like Abigail. I didn't like Bruce. Having been the victim of a stalker, I wasn't about to find One-Night Stand Man appealing. So what kept me reading Every Vow You Break? I kept reading because I knew something was going to go wrong and I had to know what it was and how Abigail would manage to get herself out of it. That's why I kept reading.

How did that work out for me? I can see something like that actually happening, but more than anything else, it made me angry. Angry that something like that could actually happen. If you couldn't finish watching The Handmaid's Tale because it made you so angry (like me), you might want to avoid Every Vow You Break. And that's all I'm going to say about what Abigail had to deal with at the end.

I said that my reaction to Swanson's book was lukewarm, but that's not exactly true, is it? My Dislike button was firmly pushed several times. My curiosity was totally engaged, and a match was struck to my temper. Swanson kept me reacting and kept me turning the pages all right. I just wish I'd paid more attention to my track record with domestic thrillers. Of course, your mileage can certainly vary, and I hope it does. ( )
