My Lovely Wife is the debut (YES, the DEBUT!) novel from Samantha Downing. That is just incredible to me because this book is so smart and well developed.

I’ve read some great books this year but this is the first time I can honestly say that 5-stars is an understatement!

From Amazon:
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 our secrets to keeping a marriage alive.

Ours just happens to be getting away with murder.
