“A dark and irresistible debut.”—People
“Will shock even the savviest suspense readers.”—Real Simple
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.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
A warning: My Lovely Wife might leave you second-guessing every suburban couple you meet. Millicent and her husband—our unnamed narrator—couldn’t seem more like a regular, unassuming, and fairly unspectacular pair if they tried, but there’s a dark and devilishly macabre secret keeping their marriage alive. No spoilers here, but fans of Dexter may want to investigate this book. Just when you think you’ve settled into debut author Samantha Downing’s unrelenting pace, another dark twist will get your pulse racing again.

My Lovely Wife
It was an absolute thrill to read. The only thing that disappointed me was the very last sentence. I hated it.
My Lovely Wife
This book was amazing! I could not put it down from the moment I started. Samantha keeps you interested during the whole book! The ending was a little different than what I was expecting but overall a great read!
Bought the book from Barnes and Noble
I have to say so far so good. 30 pages deep in this book, and I am falling in love in how everything is turning out so fast. A so-called blind man fooling other women, but turns out that he is married and so on and so forth. It’s been a while that a book ever caught my attention like this book right did. Worth every penny to get it.
