APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
They say marriage is ’til death do you part, but this edgy mystery from Jeneva Rose probes into what happens when the mistress is the one who dies. Prodigious defense attorney Sarah Morgan is facing her most difficult case yet, representing her own husband after he’s charged with murdering the woman he was cheating on her with. It turns out Adam had started a fiery romance with Kelly Summers while pretending to work on his writing at his and Sarah’s lake house—and that’s only the first bombshell of many in this wonderfully thrilling listen. And while the ultra-juicy plot had us gripped from the start, it’s the Morgans we loved most. Teri Schnaubelt’s narration for Sarah really made her no-nonsense attitude shine, while Neil Hellegers’ delivery of Adam’s many outbursts had us laughing out loud. (Honestly, who wouldn’t be shouting expletives in a situation like this?) Delightfully suspenseful, refreshingly original, and thoroughly entertaining, The Perfect Marriage kept us guessing about the murder and the marriage.
Narrator could’ve been better but story was great
I love mysteries and read a lot of them so if I can’t figure it out it’s even better. This held my interest until the end. I would’ve loved it more had I been able to read it myself but I have chronic migraines and they’ve taken away yet another pleasurable thing.
Since I’ve started listening to audio books I’ve started enjoying books again. I will be listening to more from this author.
Interesting plot, but no other redeeming qualities. No character development, no deep thoughts, excessive and unnecessary profanity, big surprise ending was not too surprising. When narrators switched gender rolls the results were hideous.
Kind of juvenile plot & dialog.
