The couple you will find in "My Lovely Wife" is all around you. They are your parents. Your friends. Your neighbors. They are normal people. With normal lives. Yet boredom plays such a catastrophic tone they decide to murder and torture young women. A story where a normal couple find themselves suddenly in the position of serial killers while we are left to think, were they that normal after all? A thrilling tale that horrifies yet intrigues.

Wow!! This audiobook hooked me in from the very start!! I couldn‘t stop listening to it! This is a fascinating and darkly horrible domestic thriller. It has more than one #ObnoxiousCharacter - and also includes someone #InHiding! While you may not want to know anyone like this, and the plot takes a few predictable turns, this highly engaging book is addictive! Great performance too and I did more than #AudioColor! #AuldLangReads #NewYearNewYou

I liked this book a bit, it kept my interest. I disliked the characters...really, all of them. It didn‘t turn out to be very believable and I probably won‘t recommend it to anyone to read.

Talk about a book with a lot of #scandal ! I highly recommend this book especially if you like mystery, crime fiction, dysfunctional family, and perfect suburbia drama. This was my final read of the decade, completed it on 12/30 and It was a fantastic end to my reading decade. #newyearnewyou #readingchallenge

Here‘s my already overly ambitious stack for #24B42020 and this doesn‘t include the ebooks I need to finish. These are books that I have started but haven‘t finished (some I started in Jan 2019!) and books due back soon. Hoping to get through as many of these as I can as well as the tagged book, Sword of Destiny, Finder, and The Passenger. Sleep isn‘t going to come easy so we‘ll see how much I manage. #wintergames #SlayBells @MidnightBookGirl

Sneaking bits of the tagged book while watching/listening to Trans-Siberian Orchestra Ghosts of Christmas Eve. I love their Christmas music 🖤 Just finished watching White Christmas before this while I wait for my boyfriend to show up so we can exchange jolabokaflod books. Been a pretty relaxed Christmas Eve so far. Though I haven‘t read as much as I wanted to 😅 #wintergames #SlayBells @MidnightBookGirl @Clwojick @StayCurious

Meh. There was one bit that surprised me but in general I didn‘t care about the characters and read it kind of half bored. The writing is snappy which makes it a quick read. I don‘t often read thrillers but when I do I want to be invested and surprised and I wasn‘t at all. ⭐️⭐️

Nonononononononoyesnonononono. I couldn‘t read this book before bed and if I did, I had to watch some happy show like Lizzie McGuire (thanks Disney+). So many twists and turns. I hated it, but loved it. It was terrifyingly good. Can‘t wait to discuss with my book club.

At first I did not like this book because I felt the writing was choppy. It just didn‘t flow for me. I don‘t know if the writing got better or I just got so invested, but I really enjoyed this book. In my head I came up with several twists, and only half guessed the correct one. ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

Nothing like a couple of murders to help keep the spark in your marriage alive. I have many thoughts on this but they‘d all give way too much away.

Up until about the last 80 pages I would have given this book a So-So rating. A “typical” suburban couple adds some mystery and murder to their lives. The wife is a little quirky and the husband willing to go along with her dark impulses; in fact it what holds their relationship together. Throughout the book I kept trying to figure out where it was going, but I did not expect where it wound up. A great unexpected ending that made my jaw drop!
