Publisher's Summary

Some people just need killing. 

Marlena Altizer Durst lives in her husband's shadow. He controls her every move - what she wears, the food she eats, and the friends she's allowed to make. If she disobeys, there are...consequences. And he has all the power. 

To outsiders, it seems that she leads a fairy-tale life. But nobody ever wonders if Cinderella was happy after she married the prince. Marlena has traded freedom and safety for luxurious imprisonment, and most days, that seems like a bad bargain. Death may be the only exit she's allowed. Just like his first wife. And his second. Unless she flips the script.

A gilded cage? Not so simple as that

Loved this story! A bit unrealistic and too over the top but Marlena is one tough chick and takes her hard knocks with bravery and stoicism. Story had a wonderful build up. Narration was excellent as well. If you’ve read/liked Jane Doe this is for you. Credit worthy!

The Bold and the Beautiful

"Now [dramatic pause] some people just need killing..." The first sentence of the book was not even complete and I realized I'd wasted my credit on a B rated soap opera.
