Fresh Fiction Review

My Lovely Wife
Samantha Downing

Reviewed by Sharon Salituro

Women's Fiction Psychological | Thriller Domestic

This is the story of a family from the outside looks like a normal family. A father, mother Millicent, two kids, Rory and Jenna. From the inside, the parents are not at all what you would think of as normal. They have a very strange habit. They pick out women to kill. He is a tennis pro; Millicent is a relator.

They research the women, very carefully, he usually sees them and meets with them using the name Tobias and telling them that he is deaf. Millicent and he have date nights in the garage where they make up the next point. They have decided to blame this all on a man named Owen who years ago, did commit a murder, but has since been out of their home town. He sends letters to Josh who is a reporter always signing the name Owen, so people would never be able to pin these on them. They are up to four women when suddenly everything is turned around.

Wow is all I can say about this book by Samantha Downing. I enjoyed the way we really don’t know the husband's real name as he is the narrator of this story. Downing has you really liking this family even though they were murderers. From the start, both of them, in my opinion, are a little wacky, but you still like them.

This story has a lot of twist and turns, you will not get confused as it all falls into place. Downing just has a way with the story, makes you believe one and then the other. I was completely shocked at the way it ended, but I loved it. So, if you need a book to sink your teeth into, MY LOVELY WIFE is the one for you.
