My Lovely Wife

My Lovely Wife



'The most gripping psychological thriller of 2019' Stylist

This is a story about a married couple. They met, fell in love, had two beautiful children. So far, so ordinary.

But they have a very dark secret.

It's a story with a twist. And then another. And another.

You might think you've read stories like this before.

You'd be wrong.

By the end of the first chapter you'll be hooked.

At page fifty you might not sleep until you finish.

And when you turn the last page, you'll ask yourself one question:

How well do you really know the person you love most?

Our Review

I chose to request a proof copy of My Lovely Wife to read for review because it had so many authors I like recommending it.

My Lovely Wife is unrelentingly dark and completely unlike anything I have read before. It is like a car wreck you want to look away from but can’t. It definitely makes for uneasy reading.

My Lovely Wife is written from the point of view of the husband, a tennis coach at an expensive country club. His wife Millicent is an estate agent and his two children Rory and Jenna live with them both.

The small community they live in has been rocked by the news that a serial killer is on the loose. His daughter has been shaken by this knowledge and has been acting out of character.

Not only does the narrator have to worry about this he also suspects that there is something that isn’t quite right about his wife.

I enjoyed reading My Lovely Wife despite seeing some of the twists coming. However, I didn’t guess anywhere near everything that was going to happen.

I couldn’t put My Lovely Wife down but I won’t say anymore about it for fear of ruining the plot.
