Book Review – The Perfect Marriage

Technically we are a little over the half way point in the year, but I decided while on a family vacation to the cottage last month that I want to ready one book a month the remainder of the year.

I am hoping by doing a review for you guys it helps to hold me accountable. But really, I just miss doing a little something that is 100% for me.

I have been following Ashley Spivey on Instagram for a while, she is an avid book lover and such a supporter to authors. Last year she also ran an amazing fundraiser helping teachers to clear their list as they prepared for the school year.  Within the last year she has started an online book club through the gram (it had been running on Facebook for a while too) and she has some great reads listed.

This  is where I discovered “The Perfect Marriage“.

Sarah Morgan is a successful and powerful defense attorney in Washington D.C. At 33 years old, she is a named partner at her firm and life is going exactly how she planned.
The same cannot be said for her husband, Adam. He is a struggling writer who has had little success in his career. He begins to tire of his and Sarah’s relationship as she is constantly working.
Out in the secluded woods, at Adam and Sarah’s second home, Adam engages in a passionate affair with Kelly Summers.
Then, one morning everything changes. Adam is arrested for Kelly’s murder. She had been found stabbed to death in Adam and Sarah’s second home.
Sarah soon finds herself playing the defender for her own husband, a man accused of murdering his mistress.
But is Adam guilty or is he innocent?

This book is a psychological thriller. It honestly kept me guessing the whole way through, and even while reading the ending I was in disbelief because it was not where I thought it was going.

Jeneva has done such an amazing job in creating these characters that while you are reading the book you really feel like they truly are people you could know.

I managed to ready this book on a few days, picking it up at every opportunity the kiddos would give me. I really appreciated that it was able to keep my mind ticking, had a good amount of suspense and crime but stayed away from unneeded gore.

As a debut book I CAN NOT wait to see what is in store for this author. I believe she has a series coming out under a pen name this fall, I will have to look more into that … and then give it a read!

Next up is another book I discovered through Spivey’s Book Club, “Cleo McDougal Regrets Nothing” by Allison Winn Scotch.
