    It's my favorite time of year! The time of year when the weather finally stops being hot as balls and all the creepy stuff is all over. You don't even get judged for being a fangirl of the monsters under the bed! But most of the books I've read have been mostly not my normal Octo...

    WOW! 5 big stars exclamation point. I went into this book without knowing anything about it. Right away I was intrigued. By the end of chapter one I was super intrigued. And I didn?t have to read all that much more before I started wondering what was wrong with me that I found this b...

    4.75* Sinful Stars! (rounded up) A Brand of Crazy All its Own. Be afraid. Be very, very afraid! Next time your neighbor or someone else smiles at you, perhaps you should just look away. Catching their eye could be extremely dangerous. Me: Smiling wickedly as I read: ?I lov...

    I'm flat in the middle of the road on this one. With the tagline of Dexter meets Mr. & Mrs. Smith, I knew what I was getting into and it sounded right up my alley. The problem is- I've been in this alley before. I'm quite familiar with the alley and for that reason this book failed...

    My Lovely Wife is a 2019 Berkley publication. Sly, witty, and brilliant!! The tile, cover, and intriguing synopsis for this book made it sound too good to pass up- and it was!! The premise is mostly original, as a husband and wife and their two children enjoy ,what appears ...

    I have a lot of things to say about this book, none of them good, pretty much all of it is a spoiler. I will say that I am literally the only person, out of all 20 (as of right now) GR friends who have read this, who did not like this book (4.56 average GR friend rating!). So consider ...

    5 PSYCHO stars! I pretend I don't hear her, go straight to the door and shut it behind me, then continue until I am out of her building, down the block, and around the corner. It is only then that I stop and wonder how she figured it out. I must have slipped. I cannot believe t...

    There's no denying I'm one tough customer or a picky chick as I've so lovingly dubbed myself. Being the lone misfit who can't seem to get in line with a book everyone else is awarding high ratings is proof positive. At 110 pages in, I have no choice but to jump ship. The ?shocking re...

    We read My Lovely Wife with two of our reading groups and this one left us all cheering with excitement after finishing this one. We hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did. If you haven't read it it's one we highly recommend not to miss out on as it is just that fantastic. It's a to...

    2.0 Stars?- I don?t think I have ever read a book this demented and warped nor do I ever want to read one like it again. This book?s basic premise is so ridiculous it ruins a well written book that could have been enjoyable. The author makes the mistake of making the two main cha...

    4.5? Be prepared to be shocked!? If only I could give you a broader glimpse of what this book is about. Unfortunately, nearly everything I?d want to share would end up being a spoiler! So friends?less is more! Millicent and her husband are living the typical suburban ...

    Five Crazy Solid Stars I am not going to get into very much of this plot. I went into this book blindly and suggest you do the same. It was a big surprise. Millicent and her husband have two children and live in the suburb. They seem to be a normal family like everyone else in the n...

    4.5 stars Completely and Captivatingly Cray-Cray!! To what lengths would you go to impress the one you love? Would you do the unthinkable just because you are so infatuated? Would you do it over and over again just for the thrill of it? Good golly, I enjoyed this thriller. It ...

    Well this is messy and gross and delightful. This entire thing is from the point of view of the husband in this married couple serial killer duo, and I love it. His pov is perfect. His voice is perfect. (Though I will say the audiobook narration left something to be desired for me. ...

    Um. What in the actual...? This book is a generous slice of crazy and I loved it. Our unnamed protagonist and his Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs wife shake off suburban boredom by murdering local women. It gets crazier from there. Ridiculously good, "unputdownable" thriller; go read...

    4.5 twisted, dark and thrillingly fun stars ????? - I absolutely LOVED Samantha Downing's My Lovely Wife ? I am a Dexter fan - both the books and the television show so this book filled a definite void for me. Man meets woman. Man and woman fall in love, get married and...

    I was lucky enough to win My Lovely Wife in a Goodreads Giveaway. I knew the book was about a couple that murders and that the book had really good reviews but I didn't know much more. Recently I read the book with JuJu and Gail and what a fun way to read a book like this one. There ar...

    Pure evil beneath the facade of suburban comfort. I was encouraged by my GR friend Susanne to read this and despite my weariness with thrillers, I will admit that this works. If thrillers are you thing....go for it. ...
