Publisher Description

Criminal profiler in training (and newlywed) Jessie Hunt, 29, discovers that dark secrets lurk in her new suburban town; when a body turns up dead, she finds herself caught in the crosshairs of her newfound friends, her husband’s secrets, her serial killer caseload — and the secrets of her own dark past.

In The Perfect Wife, criminal profiler in training Jessie Hunt is sure she's finally put the darkness of her childhood behind her. She and her husband, Kyle, just moved from a cramped downtown Los Angeles apartment into a Westport Beach mansion. Kyle's promotion has them swimming in money. And Jessie is on the verge of getting her master's degree in forensic psychology, the last step in her dream of becoming a criminal profiler.

But soon after their arrival, Jessie begins to notice a series of strange developments. The neighbors — and their au pairs — all seem to be hiding secrets. The mysterious yacht club Kyle is desperate to join is rife with cheating spouses and with troubling rules of its own. And the notorious serial killer being held at the psychiatric hospital where Jessie is completing her degree seems to know more about her life than is normal — or safe.

As her world starts to unravel, Jessie begins to question everything around her — including her own sanity. Has she truly uncovered a disturbing conspiracy buried within a sunny, wealthy Southern California beach town? Does the mass murderer she's studying really somehow know the origin of her private nightmares?

Or has her tortured past finally come back to claim her?

A fast-paced psychological suspense thriller with unforgettable characters and heart-pounding suspense, The Perfect Wife is audiobook one in a riveting series that will leave you listening late into the night.

Improbable scenarios

This audiobook held my attention even though there were frequent improbable scenarios.For instance, the heroine enters a marina at an exclusive yacht club, where she & her husband are members despite not owning a boat. She easily passes the guards on duty “because she’s a member”. Really? She doesn’t own a boat. In these days of heightened security, security personnel would want to know her destination AND as the ‘gatekeepers’ would know which members were on board their boats or not. Then having walked past the guards with little or no questions, she then boards a boat and easily enters the cabins. Indifferent guards and no locked doors at an exclusive yacht club had me rolling my eyes and saying “whatever” to myself.

The Perfect Wife

Very good book. The Narrator, while she spoke clearly and distinctly- (and most importantly, did NOT have an English accent), was not easy on my ears.
I enjoyed Jessie and will see if this is a series. If so, I’ll get another, if the Narrator is different. Pandora53

Dumb but couldn’t stop reading

Okay, although I couldn’t stop reading,rolling of my eyes and groaning had my neighbors worried.
This super smart woman was also the dumbest. No spoilers so I can’t explain...but really.. it was one of those stories where you laughed(gaffaued. sic?) at all the wrong times! Inadvertently funny because it was so incredibly and inadvertently god awful dumb!
