Product Description

WITH PHOTOS - Author of the bestselling book, "Missing Wives, Missing Lives"


Studies have shown that marriages typically thrive the most in the months after the wedding, a period known as "the honeymoon period."

Not these marriages.

Spousal murder is never acceptable, but newlywed murder seems to be on a completely different level. It is unconscionable to think someone could stand in front of his family and friends, pledging to honor and cherish another person for the rest of his life, and then kill his spouse in cold blood just months, weeks, or even days later. It happens more than you'd think--and, contrary to popular belief, it's not always the husband who acts as the aggressor.

In her third true crime book, bestselling author JJ Slate examines more than twenty true stories of newlywed murders, delving into the past of the victims and aggressors, searching for answers to the question everyone is asking: How does this sort of thing happen? These shocking cases of betrayal and murder might just make you think differently about those five sacred words, "till death do us part."

5.0 out of 5 stars unthinkable 28 February 2015
By Marlene fabregas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I absolutely was fascinated with this book. The sad truth is, that so many women, are killed by the person that is there to protect and love. Here the book also shows that, women, aren't the only one that can be in an abusive relationship men also. But these couples married for better or worse unfortunately, the until death do us part, was intentional. Why marry someone, just to murder them.
What makes a person turn on a dime and take someone's life. Read this book, you will not be disappointed. JJ Slate has written another book that you won't be able to put down.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the "book of the year" but tolerable and interesting 19 January 2016
By weebiscuit - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is not the usual reading fare I like, but it seemed like something different enough that I thought I'd give it a try. There were quite a few disatrous marriages mentioned, some with a duration of only two days! The problem with the book is that because it covered so many maladjusted marriages each story seemed more like an overview and didn't achieve any real depth.

Many years ago I read a few Ann Rule books on true crime. When an author devotes an entire book to a story the reader will obvious understand the people and the events leading up to the crime a lot better than when a book with many stories packed into it. So, while this book wasn't bad for what it claimed to be (a collection), for myself I would have preferred a book which covered only one of these crimes in depth. Also, while I was reading these stories, it struck me as to how many of them I had seen on TV on one or another of those "Investigation Discovery" or other true crime shows.

As far as the writing, it wasn't bad. I recall reading one awkwardly-worded sentence, but it wasn't egregious enough for me to mark it down, so it wasn't that bad. The stories were certainly interesting, to say the least. There were a few that I wouldn't mind reading an entire book about. I wouldn't discourage anyone from reading this book, but just know in advance that you won't be getting into any of these mal-adjusted marraiges and the people involved in any great depth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well-written and commonsensical, this collection is a fabulous read for anyone! 2 March 2015
By Kat McCarthy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Its astonishing how often this happens. And sadly, I get the impression this book just gives us a hint as to how often it really does happen.

The cases chosen for this collection are diverse, well-researched and extremely compelling. Be prepared for an all-nighter my fellow crime buffs. In this book, you'll see cases where both men and women are the perpetrators; where a history of violence was visible, and some not; and where the couple were married for a very short time - as little as 4 days - when the murder took place, while others were almost a year. Some cases had the most intriguing circumstances surrounding the murders that they left me dumbfounded and speechless. Most have a resolution, however, there are a sad few where the victims families are still looking for answers.

Well-written and commonsensical, this collection is a fabulous read for anyone - whether a true crime fan or not. In many of these cases, the warning signs are there before the couples got married. At the end of the book the author includes a list of these warning signs of domestic violence and where you can go for help. If you or a friend are in a situation like this, please seek help. Marriage will never make your situation better.

5.0 out of 5 stars So sad, happily ever after is just wishful thinking anymore 1 March 2015
By giggles - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
So sad, happily ever after is just wishful thinking anymore. Some of these marriages only lasted a few days, a lot of these people got married just so they could murder their spouse and collect insurance money. So strange that you think you know someone and find out it isn't true until it's too late. This is a very well written book from an excellent writer, looking forward to reading more of Ms. Slate's books.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is great from start to finish 28 February 2015
By jennifer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is great from start to finish. I was stunned at what some people would do to the love ones in just a short time after getting married. Even some relationship had signs of what could come and were ignored. I recommend this book for everyone. Thank you Jennifer J. Slate
