The Perfect Marriage by Jeneva Rose

Rating: 5 out of 5.

What a crazy, awesome story! This was a murder-mystery/wrongfully accused/legal thriller/domestic thriller mash-up, and I loved it!

Adam is having an affair.
His mistress is found dead in his lakehouse bed.
Adam is arrested.
His wife, a top defense attorney, becomes his lawyer.
Adam swears he didn’t do it.

That’s the main idea of this one. If Adam isn’t the murderer, who is? They need to work fast because he’s getting charged with murder and the prosecution is pushing for the death penalty.

I was really not expecting this book to go where it did. It was fast-paced and filled with twists that I was just completely taken by surprise with. I had inklings of who I thought did it, but then I would dismiss them because they didn’t seem to fit. Boy…😲 was I wrong!

This is a dual-POV story, so you get to hear Adam’s side of things as well as his wife’s. I liked that there are two narrators to tell the story in the audio version. They both did an excellent job, and it helped make the story come to life for me. I highly recommend the audio if you can grab it!

Overall, I thought this was an awesome thriller with so many twists, I was constantly second-guessing what was happening. The ending was great and made the whole story come together for me. I highly recommend it if you enjoy domestic thrillers!

To Read or Not To Read:

I would recommend The Perfect Marriage to readers that are looking for a poignant story that brings you to a fantasy world that speaks to our culture and relationships with others.
