The Anniversary By Stephanie Bishop

The Anniversary By Stephanie Bishop

Novelist J.B. Blackwood is on a cruise with her husband, Patrick, to celebrate their wedding anniversary.
Her former professor, Patrick is much older than J.B.. But when they met, he seemed somehow ageless, as all new gods appear in the eyes of those who worship them. He is a film director. A cult figure. But now his success is starting to wane and J.B. is on the cusp of winning a major literary prize. Her art has been forever overseen by him, now it may overshadow his.
For days they sail in the sun. They lie about drinking, reading, sleeping, having sex. There is nothing but dark water all around them.
Then a storm hits and Patrick falls off the ship. J.B. is left alone, as the search for what happened to Patrick – and the truth about their marriage – begins.

My Thoughts:

This was a psychological mystery that is tense and full of dread about what is going to happen. Reading the first few chapters you get an idea about the story and back story but after that you will never have guessed what in the world is going on. When J. B and her husband go on a cruise, they have the first few days relaxing and having a good time but when a storm hits, something terrible happens to Patrick and J. B is left all alone but this is where J.B’s story begins and we follow her on her journey to discover who her husband really was. It was an ok read, it pulls you in but I felt as though it didn’t have me hooked, I wanted to find out what was going to happen but I didn’t feel invested in the story. It could of been so good.

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
