My Lovely Wife by Samantha Downing
The first murder was a mistake. The second was necessary. The third…?
He and Millicent have been married for a long time. They have two wonderful children. They are doing okay living in a neighborhood just a smidge outside their means. They have everything they ever wanted. Yet. They are bored. Reflecting on the accidental murders they committed years before they wonder what it would be like to try again. This time on purpose? But then, despite how careful he thought he was, his world starts to fall apart.
Told entirely from the husband’s point of view we get to know his family, his job and his wife as they begin to engage in a game of cat and mouse where the roles change characters throughout the course of the novel. It was interesting to be in his shoes as his world starts to collapse around him. The author does a great job making him a likable father and guy while at the same time… Yeah. Can’t say anymore about that.
Thriller fans who like just getting part of the story with the narrow point of view to puzzle out what exactly is going on will really enjoy this edge of your seat ride.
Will be released on March 26th!
