Ruth Rendell takes the way to define The Bridesmaid

Love is a strange outburst of the human emotions, and it makes you to do the unbelievables. You are a simple life leading guy, love your lady love, but the situation is such that you are not stepping back to execute that you haven’t even thought of doing even in your wildest dreams. You can even show the desperation to take someone’s life for your love, and Ruth Rendell describes it in a touching manner before you. The Bridesmaid is not just another psychological thriller, it is something that you’ll agree that this could be your story as well. Surely this is one of her most compelling suspense novels. The characters are so well drawn, the dialogue so natural, you really think you might know these people. The idea explored had potential - that two lovers would kill to prove their love. Philip, his sisters Fiona and Sarah and mother all live together in a smallish flat in London after his father died. Fee is getting married, Sarah is acting strangely, and his mother is a dependent woman who cannot exist without a man around. At the wedding, Philip falls for one of the bridesmaids. Senta is the groom's cousin. Philip is immediately enthralled. While Fee is away on her honeymoon and his mother and other sister are taking a vacation, he and Senta get extremely close extremely quickly. Only when it is too late does he realize that this relationship requires more than a normal one to keep it steady. Senta's idea of proof of undying love is rather skewed. By the time Philip is able to sort out Senta's lies from the truth, he is in a situation that he cannot fathom. For a start, it just didn't seem likely that Phillip and Senta (the lovers) would be attracted to each other. Senta, the creepy, somewhat slovenly, yet beautiful and passionate girl with silver hair, and Phillip - gentle, particular, mother's boy, trainee interior decorator. There's no doubt that the novel had atmosphere, but it seemed as if Senta was in the wrong story - it's as if she wandered in from a gothic horror story. Phillip and his ordinary family consisting of mother Christine, sisters Fee and Cheryl, and brother in-law Darren, belonged more to the "kitchen sink" genre. It was even harder to believe that Senta shared any genes at all with Darren (she was his cousin, and her meeting with Phillip occurred when she was one of several bridesmaids at the wedding of Fee and Darren). Phillip was obviously way out of his league with Senta, and should have run in the other direction when she proposed they each murder a stranger. A delight of this and other Ruth Rendell books are the side characters, and the descriptions of the people involved in the various sub plots, there again are they just sub plots or somehow more central to the story than they appear. For example the character Darren, Fee's new husband "Darren's hair was yellow and thick and rather rough, like new thatch. He had blue eyes, and strong handsome features, and ruddy skin. One day, wine colored jowls would hang over his collar, and his nose would become an outsize strawberry. He was a square man, the jack on a playing card. Ruth Rendell's books always pack a punch. Or several. And in "The Bridesmaid", Rendell stays true to form, basically. While most Rendell fans recognize her as the author of the fascinating Inspector Wexford series, she also writes other thrillers. She also writes even chillier thrillers under the name of Barbara Vine. Regardless of which nom de plume she uses, it is difficult to find a writer who can explore, even reveal, the psychological pathways with the effectiveness of she demonstrates. It’s a classic that this page at www.rightbooks.in/product_details.asp?pid=9780099681809&Bridesmaid,%20The brings about, and none other than RightBooks.in is ready to provide you that.
