Book Review – My Lovely Wife

There aren’t many books that grab me in and gold me tight from the first chapter on but this book did. If time had allowed I easily could have read this in one day flat. It was an easy read that kept me staying one more chapter all night long. This book is appropriately described as Dexter meets Mr. and Mrs. Smith!

This book is written in the perspective of Millicent‘s husband who we never know the real name of. They have built the perfect life for them and their 2 children but like many married couples they have had to find a way to spice up their relationship… but unlike most couples they have turned to murder.

This book kept me guessing the whole time and I had so many questions that I just wanted answers to the whole book. I am really looking forward to more books from the author as this is her first one.

I would highly, highly recommend this book! Once you had read it scroll down and then let me know in the comments your thoughts!

I was not expecting the twist in this book! When they found the 3 other bodies I believed that Millicent was shocked and didn’t do those. I was expecting someone else to have done that and that they would pin them all in that person.

I am also not convinced that Tobias is a killer. I know he killed Holly out of self defence but I really don’t think he is a cold blooded killer. I mean he never actually did any of the killing or torture and couldn’t even ask his wife about the details and his daughter had to actually kill his wife not him. I really think he got the pleasure from his wife’s excitement.

I would love to know your thoughts! Did you see the twist coming? What do you think the last sentence means?
