This book – OMG! If you are looking for a great thriller that will keep you guessing until the very last chapter…
I’ve found the perfect story for you! Jeneva Rose, a brand new and ridiculously fabulous author, wrote an intense thriller, The Perfect Marriage, with characters that whirl around each other with the perfect balance of chaos, intrigue and exceptional literary timing.
The book starts with a married couple that I am just sure is going to be a repeat of some sorts of the story line in The Last Mrs Parrish (which I loved, by the way, but don’t need the remake). The opening with a disappointed, disapproving husband interacting with the beautiful wife who is styled to a “T” leads me to think I’m in a classic marital abuse story. BUT NOT AT ALL! The chapters alternate between the perspectives of husband and wife, Adam and Sarah Morgan, both actively trying to solve the murder of Adam’s mistress, but perhaps with different motivations. While Adam himself stands accused of the murder, Sarah loyally defends him as she is the best criminal defense lawyer in the region.
This story is filled with a host of exciting characters – from fellow colleagues at the law firm, to a despotic mother-in-law, to a small town sheriff who might be a little too friendly. If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile, you know how much I don’t like figuring out the end before it happens. Not even halfway in, I was feeling disappointed because I thought I’d figured out the bad guy. I was SO wrong – and that delights me in ways I can’t even explain.
Warning – this story is not for the very young or the faint of heart. Drugs, violence, sex, language are all present. Sounds like most network television, am I right?
So, my friends, if you love thrillers, please start The Perfect Marriage asap. Ms. Rose’s next book is due out in September and I got chill bumps reading the description. Can’t wait.
