Book Review - Best Day Ever: A gripping psychological thriller with a twist you won’t see coming! by Kaira Rouda plus $25 Amazon/Paypal Giveaway

New Release....
A loving husband. The perfect killer?

‘I wonder if Mia thinks I have a dark side. Most likely as far as she knows, I am just her dear loving husband.’ 

Paul Strom has spent years building his perfect life: glittering career, beautiful wife, two healthy boys and a big house in the suburbs.

But he also has his secrets. That’s why Paul has promised his wife a romantic weekend getaway. He proclaims this day, a warm Friday in May, will be the best day ever.

Paul loves his wife, really, he does. But he also wants to get rid of her. And with every hour that passes, Paul ticks off another stage in his elaborately laid plan…

Behind Closed Doors meets Liane Moriarty in this creepy, fast-paced psychological thriller with a twist you won't see coming!

Hubbies Book Review
Superb, thought provoking and attention-grabbing!

What do you expect form a psychological thriller? Suspense, tension, twists and turns, throughout the storyline this book delivers on all fronts.

From the first page to last the author has you hooked, the thought train of the main character is expertly defined and shows an incredible knowledge of how the human mind operates in different situations.

The main character has got it all mapped out and is in total control of his destiny and future or so he thinks. Planning a romantic trip with his wife to rekindle their relationship, he starts to notice his wife behaviour has changed and becomes suspicious, the dark side of his soul starts to become disturbed, but to what end?

All through the storyline you are kept on tender hooks and question what is going on, which is the sign of an excellent psychological thriller, what is going to happen? Why has his wife's behaviour changed? What is going to be the outcome?

The writers prose is first class and I could not put this book down, it had everything that I expected and more, having read a lot of thrillers I can normally guess the result but not in this case which enhanced the reading.

This book should be taken to the big screen and would rate up there with the great Alfred Hitchcock I cannot give this book enough praise and if I write anymore I am endanger of spoiling it for other readers.

This is the first book I have read by this author and is now on my list alongside Lee Child, James Patterson and Ian Rankin that’s how highly I rate this story and cannot wait for future publications.

  1. I would suspect the book would bring out conflict in the relationship between Paul and his wife.

  2. The reviews are over the top. This book must be one darn good thriller. If not for my anxiety I would be waiting in line. My daughter will read it by the end of the month as she loves these.

  3. It turns out to be...the worst day ever! Didn't see that coming.

  4. I don't know, but after reading the above excerpt I want to read the whole book to find out what happens!

  5. I honestly have no idea what the twist will be - I prefer to find out these things as I read. It sounds like a fantastic read - definitely on my to read list!!!

  6. I think maybe the wife will do the husband in first.

  7. Looks like I will have to read the book to find out! Sounds like a great read!

  8. It is hard to say, but I would hope that the relationship can be tightened up.

  9. I'm not sure but it sounds like a great book. I love twists!!
