Our love story is simple. I met a gorgeous woman. We fell in love. We had kids. We moved to the suburbs. We told each other our biggest dreams, and our darkest secrets. And then we got bored.

We look like a normal couple. We’re your neighbors, the parents of your kid’s friend, the acquaintances you keep meaning to get dinner with.

We all have secrets to keeping a marriage alive.

Ours just happens to be getting away with murder.

    I absolutely love power couple serial killers. There’s something about seeing the whole story through the eyes of the killers rather than a detective or victim that just tingles me in a different way. My Lovely Wife was an absolute fun ride.

    One of the things I loved was that this was through the husband’s eyes the entire time. It’s fun to get inside a man’s head. Imagine finding your soul mate, finding out that you both have a dark side and then exploring that side with him or her. Execution, checkmate and then… wait, what?! Hello surprises, what do you have for me today…. *eyebrow wiggle*. Honestly, I guessed the two major twists from the onset but dang if I didn’t have fun watching it all play out.

    I loved the family dynamics and how the actions that happened in the secretive lives bled into their personal ones. Actions upon actions upon actions! There was one tiny twist that I actually didn’t see coming. Wasn’t entirely surprised but was like all right, all right… got me! Absolutely agree with the Mr. and Mrs. Smith vibe in this dark story peppered with levity.

    Lovers of the fast paced writing style of B.A. Paris and Claire Macintosh will enjoy this author as well. Fast paced, engaging and deviously delightful, I definitely highly recommend this book and look forward to a lot more from this author.

    I went into My Lovely Wife not knowing what it was about and wow, what a wild surprise! This book was addicting, crazy, and different than most of the the thrillers I’ve read. I don’t want to say too much because I think this one is better to go in blind but I think most people will enjoy this crazy ride! Can’t wait to see the movie!
