I think I am speechless. 5 Huge ⚡️🌟💫✨⚡️ This book was amazing and creepy and scary and dark and funny and any other adjective you can think of all mixed up in a pretty intense thriller. It’s hard to believe this is a debut novel. There were times I suspected something else was going on other than the obvious but I was never sure.
Some of the couples interactions are just plain creepy and funny. How is that even possible? This is probably the best book I have read this year as far as thrillers go. I won’t be forgetting this one any time soon. ( )

A fast read --dark and not entirely believable but entertaining. ( )

A rollercoaster ride from start to finish. It reads like an episode off of Snapped or some other ID Channel show. ( )

I loved the premise of My Lovely Wife by Samantha Downing. Sure people have referenced that it’s a cross between Dexter and Mr. & Mrs. Smith, and there are similarities, but I really liked how Downing took a look at how murdering people with your spouse takes a toll on your life and that of your kids.

Although there was constantly something going on, My Lovely Wife was still a slow burn for me. The personalities of the narrator (never named) his wife, Millicent, and their two kids, Rory and Jenna are so well developed. Downing does this perfectly by spreading it out over the book. You aren’t force fed all the details at the beginning, Downing coaxes it out of her characters like Millicent torturing her victims to find out all of their secrets.

I knew early on where it was leading, but that didn’t stop me from quickly turning the page to read all the details that would get me to the finale. While this is a book about serial killers, to me it wasn’t super graphic, which just added to the horror when something disturbing was revealed.

Normally for a thriller, if I figured out where it was going early on, I would give it four stars or less, but like I mentioned before, I really enjoyed Downing’s take on how murdering people can affect (relatively) sane people’s lives. ( )

This sounded like my perfect book, right up my thriller-loving alley, and I even put off reading it because I thought I was going to love it so much.

But no. It was SO. BORING. Dull, bland, tedious. And all those glowing reviews - WTF?! How can we be having such different reading experiences? Sigh. I dragged myself to almost halfway but I just couldn't go on.

The narrator, the husband, is dull. The details of their domestic life take up most of the narrative and I really just did. not. care. Once you figure out the basic premise of the book, which doesn't take long, it drags on and on. I guess this was meant to build suspense but it fell flat for me. Millicent the wife is supposedly some super-psycho but she is so two-dimensional, it's hard to take her character seriously. We read more about her red hair and than about how fucking creepy she must be.

So yes, this was a major disappointment and is heading for the library donation bin at first opportunity. ( )
