My Lovely Wife-Book Review

39796904Dexter 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 secrets to keeping a marriage alive.

Ours just happens to be getting away with murder.

If you are following my blog for long enough, you must know that Mystery is not my go-to genre, I like to read a good mystery in a few months but not too many or regularly. When I first find this book, the title totally won me and I knew that I have to read this book. Though I haven’t watch Dexter and literally don’t have any idea about it, Which was a positive point for me. This book totally got me.

I can’t go into details so I’ll just try to avoid any detail. The story is dark, twisted, nasty, brutal, astonishing and shocking. It revolves around a couple who has a unique hobby and they enjoy every bit of it.

A normal family which is not normal, but how normally they pretend and behave, It made me really sick. How they normally talk about their feelings and act normal like it is normal.

I loved the writing, characters, and the way story unfolds, it was the writing style which made an interesting story more catchy. I had a few doubts but the ending it totally took me away, I never expected it to happen.

If you read mysteries than I am definitely recommending it and If you don’t then I am still recommending it.

    I don’t think there is such a thing as a “normal” family anymore, if there ever was…
