My Lovely Wife
My Lovely Wife | Samantha Downing
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.

At first I did not like this book because I felt the writing was choppy. It just didn‘t flow for me. I don‘t know if the writing got better or I just got so invested, but I really enjoyed this book. In my head I came up with several twists, and only half guessed the correct one. ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

Up until about the last 80 pages I would have given this book a So-So rating. A “typical” suburban couple adds some mystery and murder to their lives. The wife is a little quirky and the husband willing to go along with her dark impulses; in fact it what holds their relationship together. Throughout the book I kept trying to figure out where it was going, but I did not expect where it wound up. A great unexpected ending that made my jaw drop!

Loved these dark characters, both the narrator and his "lovely" wife Millicent. This couple has some unconventional date nights... A bit slow in the middle, but the last third was a total page turner. I felt like Downing could've played up a couple of things even more than she did, but overall a really engaging thriller. I look forward to more from the author!

I have another book to send to a new home. All I ask is that you send this book on to someone else once you're finished or pick a book from your shelves to pass on.

First to comment below is the lucky winner. 😁

TrishB I try to do this with a lot of the books I get from Litsy friends it‘s a great idea! I‘ve read this one though 👍🏻 2mo

Addison_Reads @TrishB @Macker11 💚 I was inspired to do this when @Crazeedi sent me a book. I loved getting such a thoughtful gift, and I've tried to pass on books from my own shelves to encourage others to share as well. 2mo
Addison_Reads @Macker11 Would you like this book? I'd be happy to send it to you. 2mo
Macker11 Sure ! I would love to send it along when I am finished ! 2mo
TrishB Exactly 👍🏻 2mo
Addison_Reads @Macker11 just email me your shipping address and I'll get it in the mail this weekend. ☺ caddison97@gmail.com 2mo
Macker11 What is media mail? 2mo
Addison_Reads @Macker11 media mail is an option through the US postal service for reduced shipping cost on media items like books, magazines, even, etc... 2mo
Addison_Reads Sorry... Dvds not even. Silly autocorrect. 2mo
Macker11 Wow! I had no idea ! Good to know 2mo
Crazeedi @Macker11 you have to say at the post office this goes media mail if you send a book or any media, then it's like 2.50 to maybe 4.50 , but mostly I've paid around 3.00 2mo
Crazeedi @Macker11 otherwise they'll try to ship first class or priority which gets expensive 2mo
Crazeedi @Addison_Reads no I have not. I have plenty of reading material, lol 2mo
Macker11 @Crazeedi well that‘s what I was picturing with everyone sending books to each other! I was wondering why not send prime directly After paying for shipping... but that makes sense! Learn something new every day! 2mo
Crazeedi @Macker11 of you have Amazon prime you can ship to someone a new or used book, sure! Some people even give ebooks, theres a way of doing that , I cant remember how right now, someone on here knows. But if I buy a used book or get an ARC or have a book I no longer want I look on people's page where they have their want to read and send or just post and say who wants. I like to send as a surprise 2mo

This book is complex and interesting. Although we are discussing serial killers, it is not gruesome, as the book focuses on the psychology of planning and committed murders while maintaining a family life. My only complaint was that there were a lot of flashbacks that created some confusion about when the narrator was describing.

I am loving this book! I don‘t want it to end. I‘m 3/4 of the way through, I am just realizing that I do not know the Male main characters real name. One of my favorite quotes so far is “ My poker face is terrible, and I lose every hand”. Wrong hobby to have if you don‘t have a good poker face! Maybe it will get him in the end.......

This book was nuts. I didn‘t expect it to be as good as it was honestly. The story is about a man and his wife and their twisted criminal acts. The story really builds up to a suspenseful and creepy ending and I really was extremely satisfied with how it all came together. I didn‘t guess everything in this one which is something I really love in a thriller!

I can't wait to hear what the rest of #LMPBC #GroupS thinks of this one. It's probably one of the craziest thrillers I've read with many cringeworthy & creepy moments. My mind has been trying to process it all since I finished it early Friday morning. I guessed some twists, but not all. It certainly fits in with our theme as this is the most horror-like thriller that I've read. I'll send this over to Hannah soon!! @Hestapleton @jb72 @Stacypatrice

This was the audiobook that got me through 15 hours of driving today. I think it was the audio that made this book appealing. If I hadn‘t had a voice to go with the main character I think I wouldn‘t have found him sympathetic at all. Thought it was clever and fun, although the ending was a bit rushed. Definitely made my trip easier!
Oh, and as I have had trouble finishing books this summer, at least I can say I finished this one!

I have never read a book like this before! I knew this book would be a thriller from the very first page! It kept me hooked and I couldn‘t put it down. The main characters in the novel are a serial killer couple, but the question is: is one of them more sinister than the other and how many secrets do they keep from each other? This book ranks in my favorites and I can‘t wait to read more from this author!
