2023 Book Review: My Lovely Wife

My Lovely Wife by Samantha Downing

A Mystery/Thriller, 2019 by Berkley, 390 Pages 

What I Didn’t Like:

  • This is a dark book: death, implied torture, and overall bad people. Consider it a content warning if you need it. 
  • Not a likable character in the cast. This can be a problem for some readers so if that’s you, beware. 

What I Did Like:

  • Very intriguing opening chapter. I love when stories start off feeling like one tired old cliche and then flip things. You always know you’ll be in for a fun ride when that happens! 
  • The ending. Absolutely my favorite kind of ending. It’ll stick with me, it gives you enough but leaves you thinking, and it’s dramatic. 
  • I didn’t see all the twists. I had a few figured out but not all of them. That, of course, is the best part of a thriller like this! 

Who Should Read This One:

  • Fans of You, or other dark mystery books/shows.
  • Unreliable narrator fans.

My Rating: 4 Stars

  • Dark and intriguing, this one was quite the ride!
