Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of My Lovely Wife, by Samantha Downing

Introducing the next generation of domestic thriller....

Every marriage has secrets. Everyone has flaws. Your wife isn't perfect - you know that - but then again nor are you.

But now a serial killer is on the loose in your small town, preying on young women. Fear is driving your well-behaved young daughter off the rails, and you find yourself in bed late at night, looking at the woman who lies asleep beside you.

Because you thought you knew the worst about her. The truth is you know nothing at all.

Critic Reviews

"The twist at the end of the first chapter made me read through the night. Clever. Manipulative. Dark. Disturbing. What more can you ask for?" (Jane Corry, best-selling author of My Husband's Wife)

"An assured and deliciously engrossing debut. You'll surely devour My Lovely Wife, but it will linger long after you've reached the last page." (Sarah Pinborough, Sunday Times best-selling author of Behind Her Eyes)

"You'll never look at your neighbors the same. I couldn't pull myself away from this story... Make sure you clear your schedule before you pick it up. Absolutely unputdownable." (Liv Constantine, best-selling author of The Last Mrs. Parrish)

Ridiculous....

I had to listen to the whole book just to see if at any point it would become plausible. In my library of over 80 audiobooks, this is without a doubt the worst. Totally stupid plot, awful narration, so unbelievably that I laughed out loud at times!!!

Great narration - ridiculous story

I didn't realise that I was still listening to this drivel because the narrator's voice is so great and his reading style so professional. Shame he was narrating such nonsense.

Grab it Grab it Grab it!

If you haven't got your hands on this one yet, it should be bumped up your TBR list ASAP!

A great dose of thriller, with a sprinkle of chiller, topped off with a blood red cherry on the top!

Ok

Ok story, i think the narrator should not bother trying to do voices... especially female. It ruined it a bit for me.

Long and boring

This was overall a boring and long drawn out story. Only became interesting in the last 4 chapters.
Narrator was irritating at times.

A bit different

this book was a bit different to others but I really enjoyed it. Found the narration a bit boring and one dimensional
