My Lovely Wife by Samantha Downing
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
It’s pretty rare when I read a book and don’t have a clue what’s going to happen next. I was constantly surprised, in the best possible way! In fact, I was so engrossed I literally didn’t hear as my husband took our son up to bed. I sat there and kept reading and didn’t put it down until I had finished. I was completely captivated.
Writing a book where your readers root for total psychopathic murderers is pretty impressive. Downing has absolutely blown me away.
Edgy, mesmerizing, and seriously dark and twisted, this is my new favorite book so far this year! The prose is crisp and sharp, the pacing consistently quick, the characters unique and exceptional. I could easily see this making its way to Netflix; it’s very like Dexter for the suburban parents. I highly recommend this 5* (can I give it 6*?) read!
