Book Review: The Vow by Debbie Howells

Review of The Vow

Rating: ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐  


Everything was perfect. And then her fiance disappeared…

Two weeks before her wedding, a stranger stops Amy in the street and warns her she’s in danger. Then that night, Matt, her fiancé, doesn’t come home. Desperate, Amy calls the police – but when Matt fails to emerge, she’s forced to call off her wedding day.

Then another man is reported missing, by a woman called Fiona – a man meeting Matt’s description, who was about to leave his fiancée for her. He was supposed to be moving in with her – but instead, he’s vanished.

Amy refuses to believe Fiona’s lover can be her Matt – but photos prove otherwise, and it soon becomes clear that Matt has been leading a double life. As the police dig deeper, two conflicting, yet equally plausible stories emerge from two women who allegedly have never met.

The wedding day never happened. But the funeral might.


1. One for Sorrow…

This fast-paced read tells the story of manipulation, revenge, and sorrow.

2. The Unreliable Narrator

The suspense kept me turning the pages and along the way, I lost trust in all characters as their unreliability became quite palpable.

3. In Style

I also quite enjoyed the author’s writing style and how the story progressed almost effortlessly.

4. Don’t let me down

The last revelation was a bit of a let-down but the way everything came together, at the end, was rather satisfying.

5. The Final Verdict

All in all, I enjoyed the writing style, the characters, and the storyline and will definitely recommend!

I would like to thank the Publishers, NetGalley, and the Author for sending me a copy of this book.
