Book Review: The Perfect Marriage

Spoilers Ahead:

Well, I saw this one being compared to books like ‘Gone Girl’, but I would not go that far. A highly successful attorney is working the most important case of her career, defending her husband for the murder of his mistress. The mistress that was found dead in their bed at their second home. It’s a decent book, with lots of twists and turns you probably would not see coming. However, if you read a lot of books in this genre, you will probably figure out who did it early on.

Pros: The book keeps your interest and you do want to finish it. It’s perfect if you like to see someone extract revenge on someone that did them wrong. In this case, it’s a wife that works extremely hard to afford the luxury lifestyle she and her husband live. Multiple homes, luxury cars, designer clothes… He in turn has written one book that was a success, every book since then has bombed. He convinces her to purchase a home out in the country with beautiful views and lots of quiet to work on his writing. However, instead of just writing, he starts a long affair with a local waitress in the area.

Cons: There are a lot of moments when things are just so farfetched it does not even make sense. She goes through a lot of trouble to exact revenge on her cheating husband and pulls the wool over everyone’s eyes in the process. The investigation must have been extremely lax that not one clue was found, and she was never even considered a suspect, not once.  Not only that, but it turns out she has been a master at killing people with no suspicion since she was young and killed her mother?

While I’m all for a woman making him regret he ever screwed over her, it was a lot. He didn’t just go to jail for a crime he didn’t commit, he ended up dying by lethal injection. It’s an interesting read, when you have some free time and just want to get lost in something else, just be prepared to understand that some things are seriously farfetched.
