Teaser Tuesday: My Lovely Wife by Samantha Downing

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by The Purple Booker. If you want to join in grab your current read, flick to a random page, select two sentences (without spoilers) and share them in a blog post or in the comments of The Purple Booker.


This week my teaser comes from My Lovely Wife by Samantha Downing. I have to admit this book wasn’t on my radar till the publisher sent me a Netgalley widget for it on Valentine’s day but I’m so glad they did. I pretty much devoured the whole thing in one go. It’s so dark and disturbing but absolutely brilliant. I should probably add the caveat that as it is an ARC and not the final copy text (including this teaser) may change.

But I keep my mouth shut, because that’s what friends do. We don’t point out each other’s faults unless asked.

BlurbMy Lovely Wife

Every marriage has secrets. Everyone has flaws. Your wife isn’t perfect – you know that – but then again nor are you.

But now a serial killer is on the loose in your small town, preying on young women. Fear is driving your well-behaved young daughter off the rails, and you find yourself in bed late at night, looking at the woman who lies asleep beside you.

Because you thought you knew the worst about her. The truth is you know nothing at all.

This is a thriller like nothing you’ve read before…
