My Lovely Wife by Samantha Downing
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This disturbing, horrifying read is one that will stick with me for a long time.
I flew through the pages from the very beginning. The distinct voice of the narrator, a simple yet engaging syntax, and a chilling idea sucked me into this book.
I loved that it focused on a husband and wife "team." They were both eerie in their own right--but combined, they were a couple I won't soon forget. This is one of those books where you find yourself sometimes rooting for the villain, which is horrifying in its own right. I loved that the author took a seemingly normal family and let us see into the far-from-normal aspects of their lives.
The plot was believable and chilling. I found the ending to be a bit rushed, but I still liked it a lot. I felt like it was realistic but also creepy in its own right. This is a great book for anyone who likes serial killer stories, dark novels, and female villains. I highly recommend this dark thriller and can't wait to read the author's next book.
