“A dark and irresistible debut.”—People
“Will shock even the savviest suspense readers.”—Real Simple

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.

This one had me interested from the very beginning. I could not stop listening to this. This will be one that I will definitely listen to more than once. The craziness of it all is very intriguing. I thought the narrator was greet as well. Very easy to listen to.

The book I didn't know I needed. This book had just the right amount of twists and turns! Read it!

I was definitly wowed! The storyline was intense enough to keep you engaged from pretty early on. When the twists and turns began it became an edge of your seat nail biter. A couple twists were predictable, but the majority were intense and I never saw them coming. Will absolutely recommend, but let's not forget the voice actors/narrators. Never dull, great emotion when needed and wonderful to listen to.

This book was pretty good! I enjoyed the storyline. As far as a serial killer book goes, this one was pretty tame (in a good way). The ending was okay, not amazing, but satisfactory! The only thing that I felt was missing was a lack of backstory for the main character. I felt like I didn't understand who he was or why he was doing the things he was doing. Just seemed a little implausible (even for a completely fiction novel). Either way, it was an entertaining read. The narrator was great!

I quite enjoyed the twist not playing out the way I thought they would. I was on the edge of my seat while listening. This is one book that I couldn’t stop listening lol too. Not everything is what is seemed to be.

It took me awhile to get through this book due to lack of driving. Was laid off due to COVID. Finally got through it, it was very good, I was rooting for the good/bad guy. Very interesting turns, great listen! Narrator was excellent.

I found " My Lovely Wife" to be a very engaging story. Although the protagonist is involved in heinous acts, I couldn't help but like him & hope that he would survive unscathed! I would recommend this as an easy to read...oops, I meant easy to listen to book.

Wow!!!! What an amazing book. There is not one thing I didn’t love about it. Multiple twists, yet easy to follow. There needs to be a sequel!

I really enjoyed this book. I found myself excited to listen to the audiobook while exercising. Being a huge fan of thrillers and crime dramas, this book was a real treat. I loved the narrator. The ending was really creepy and begs for a sequel!

For a couple that murders together, they sure don't communicate. So many of the father's problems could have been solved by talking. This aggravates me so much when characters do this and the author uses it as plot development. I also don't understand the father. He alternates from liking killing to not liking it. Then goes back again. I just couldn't figure him out. He doesn't make sense.
