At their beautiful, impromptu wedding at a historic inn, Emma and David promise to love and cherish each other for the rest of their lives. The only shadow over Emma's happiness is cast by her stepfather, who is furious that David failed to sign a prenuptial agreement. As the newlyweds set off for their honeymoon at an idyllic cabin in the New Jersey Pine Barrens, Emma has no idea that her life is about to turn into a wife's worst nightmare.
With keen psychological insight and a storytelling style that thrills and surprises, Patricia MacDonald explores the dark, violent impulses that compel people to betray the one person they supposedly love most. Gripping and emotionally powerful, Married to a Stranger evidences Patricia MacDonald writing at the height of her celebrated powers.

The protagonist in this novel, a Ph.D in Psychology, makes so many unbelievably stupid decisions (including the one in the last sentence) she may as well be the dumb teenager in a slasher movie.
The narration is unpleasant. Emma's voice is so quavery, one wishes only to hand her a valium, and David's voice is a strained grunt.
The book itself is completely plot-driven and is silly and insubstantial. I thought it was a waste of time.

If You Like A Good Mystery!
I've read all three books by this author. Whenever I start one of her books, I'm hooked and can't stop listening. If you like a good mystery that will keep you guessing, you'll like this book and the two previous books. I'm looking forward to the next one.
