I post book reviews as often as possible but at least once a week every Wednesday! I hope they help you to find some new books that you'll love as much as I did!
Every marriage has secrets. Everyone has flaws. Your wife isn't perfect - you know that - but then again nor are you.
But now a serial killer is on the loose in your small town, preying on young women. Fear is driving your well-behaved young daughter off the rails, and you find yourself in bed late at night, looking at the woman who lies asleep beside you.
Because you thought you knew the worst about her. The truth is you know nothing at all.
It’s been a little while since I’ve flown through a book as fast as I flew through My Lovely Wife! I was gripped and absolutely raced through it, not wanting to put it down for a second.
It was really riveting and intriguing, giving just enough away to keep me hooked and wanting more. Another thing which kept me reading on was the short chapters which kept the pace fast and unrelenting.
I found it to be a really enjoyable read the whole way through and I was able to completely zone everything out while I was reading and keep my focus solely on the book, which to me indicates a real skill from the author.
I’d usually discuss the main characters a little, but I’m worried I might give too much away if I do, due to the nature of the story. I started reading it after only having read the synopsis and I think that definitely helped me to have a really good experience with this book.
While I did guess the main ‘twist’, this didn’t ruin the book at all and I really enjoyed the lead up to the finale. Furthermore, the final little twist sent my mind spinning and made the book really memorable.
Overall, I’m giving My Lovely Wife 4.5 out of 5. It’s intriguing, suspenseful and has an unrelenting pace. A cracking debut.
