My Lovely Wife by Samantha Downing

When they met, something clicked.  They dated, married, and had two children.  They work and live contented lives until they get bored.  Normally, one wouldn't turn to murder as a new hobby but these two did...

Berkley and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published March 26th.

This was an unusual read.  He picks out the victims.  She kills them.  They work well together.  No one suspects them.  But they get a little too self confident.  When they tie a serial killer from the past to their crimes, it begins to backfire on them.  It seems he had died several years ago, so it can't be him.

Reading about their planning and how they trusted each other but didn't was interesting.  The best part of the whole book was how everything went south.  There's a twist here that made me stop and think for a bit before I went on reading.  There's a monster in this family.  I didn't figure it out ahead of time so it was a really chilling ending.  Did you guess where it was going?
