The Venue by T.J. Payne #BookReview

Amy didn’t expect to be invited to Caleb’s wedding.
And now, she doesn’t expect to get out alive.

You are invited!

Your childhood friend is having a wedding.

It’ll be held in a secluded resort, high up in the Alps.
All expenses paid.
All travel arrangements provided.
The pinnacle of elegance and luxury.

He’d love for you to come celebrate with him.
Feel free to bring your husband or boyfriend or whoever you’re seeing these days.

What’s that?
You had a falling out with the groom?
You never expected to hear from him again, let alone be invited to his wedding?

That’s okay.

That’s in the past.

By the end of the night, all will be forgiven.

The Venue Review

Bloody-hell. Literally.

I finished reading T.J. Payne’s Intercepts not too long ago, which you can read my review for here. I enjoyed it, and when I saw The Venue as a choice on Audiobook Boom, I thought it would be just what I needed to get myself out of my physical and audiobook slump I had been in. Boy, was I right.

Caleb and Lilith are getting married! How exciting. For them. They’re inviting everyone in their life, all expenses paid, who they believe have made them into the people that they are today. Sounds romantic right? Well let’s hope that you were never the love of Caleb’s life, or made him dance in front of his whole school year when he didn’t want to. In The Venue you can expect plenty of gore and violence, confusion and frustration in this fast paced psychological horror novel. You might just learn a little something about what kind of person you are yourself as you read along.

The characters are fairly obvious and somewhat stereotypical, there are very little development opportunities for them but honestly I don’t think I really cared, I just wanted a little bit of fun and if that meant a preppy bulldog boss and some it-girls then whatever.

This book isn’t particularly deep, but it was a really great and entertaining listen, so much so that I listened to this all in one day. P.J. Morgan’s narration is excellent. I say this got me out of my listening slump, however, it put me straight back into one again! Nothing I tried could keep up with the wild ride I had just been on.

I have said previously that I think T.J. Payne writes books that would make great horror movies and I stand by that statement with The Venue.
