My Lovely Wife

by Samantha Downing
A creative, twisty, and dark story that hooks you immediately. A suburban couple that spices up their marriage in a most unusual way. Although this book's premise could not happen in real life, it does not distract from the plot. It's fast-paced and keeps you guessing and turning pages. Amazingly- it's a debut book.
