My Lovely Wife: Samantha Downing

” Our love story is simple. I met a gorgeous woman. We fell in love. We had kids. We moved to the suburbs. We told each other our biggest dreams, and our darkest secrets. And then we got bored.

We look like a normal couple. We’re your neighbors, the parents of your kid’s friend, the acquaintances you keep meaning to get dinner with.

We all have our secrets to keeping a marriage alive.

Ours just happens to be getting away with murder. “

Potential triggers…

  • Unfaithful partner/cheating
  • Torture and murder
  • Stalking
  • Suicide

This book was a trip to read. Start to finish this book is told through the perspective of the husband, while he’s taking us along their current timeline he also takes us on some trips into the past that show us more about who this couple is and how they got to where they are today. We’re able to witness their first meeting, their wedding, and a few other times that don’t always make sense to show us at the time, but once the story wraps up each and every memory makes so much more sense.

I really don’t want to give anything away, I feel like so much of what happens in a thriller relies on the limited knowledge going in. *insert stressed face here*

Know that I enjoyed the story, though some breadcrumbs seemed obvious to me there were plenty of other twists and turns I did not see coming.

I’ll try to add more to this review later, it feels extremely lacking, I just am not sure how much to share without ruining any large parts of the story.

Growing up, Japanese and Indigenous, it was hard to find books that showcased stories and worlds that accurately portrayed Noelle’s experiences. Fantasy quickly became her main love, as you could really be anyone, anywhere. As the years went on, and technology grew, Noelle was finally able to see more stories and authors that looked and felt like her. Noelle is open to all genre’s though she can mostly be found reading own voice, fantasy, and romance.
