REVIEW for My Lovely Wife by Samantha Downing

Hardcover, 359 pages
Expected publication: March 26th 2019 by Berkley Books

Dexter meets Mr. and Mrs. Smith in this wildly compulsive debut thriller about a couple whose fifteen-year marriage has finally gotten too interesting...

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. 

My Thoughts…

I started this book with doubts about both the main characters.    Husband and wife, they just seemed odd.   As I kept reading I realized how incredibly odd and scary they both were.   While this could have been a stop, put this book down thought it was more of an Oh My Gosh, what are they going to do next? 

I knew the other shoe was going to drop, I knew that there was going to be that moment when the story shifted, and I was so looking forward to it.    When the story changed paths, I was let down.    I needed more; I wanted a more climatic event then what happens.   I needed it to be as dramatic as the rest of the story was and it just didn’t happen that way.   

My Lovely Wife is a thriller, it is psychotic, and it is enthralling.   I was pulled in and I couldn’t stop reading until I reached the end. I needed to know that the children in the book are safe and that the right people were held responsible for what was happening.
