My Lovely Wife


Samantha Downing


Have you read this yet? My Lovely Wife is about a wife who is anything but lovely; married to a man who is despicable and whiny and of weak character, who is also the POV of the book.

To sum up this book very broadly, it is about an extremely twisted relationship between two serial killers. They didn’t start out that way, but you know, marriage can get pretty boring when you both work, have children to take care of, and you want to climb the social ladder. And obviously, you’ll do anything to please your beautiful wife who you do not deserve. I cannot tell you a whole lot about the story line without giving some secrets away, so just know that some girls go missing and it’s a big deal.

So many people LOVE this book. Personally, for a book about two killers, this felt very tame. You are always kept one step away from all of the really interesting bits. BUT it is different than most of the other thrillers out these days, so there’s that. If you have a choice between The Silent Patient and My Lovely Wife, choose the asylum! Wait for this in paperback IMO.
