My Perfect Wife by Clare Boyd / #Review #BooksOnTour @bookouture @clareboydclark

 

 

I finally have everything I ever wanted. A home with floor-to-ceiling windows, a devoted husband who dazzles everyone he meets, and two angelic children I adore. But as I watch my husband chatting with the girl next door, I wonder if anyone can see the sadness in my pretty pink smile, or hear the scream behind my straight white teeth? 

I know I’m crazy to think there’s a hint of desire in his eyes. 

I know it’s madness to see a flicker of fear in hers. 

I know all this, because I’ve been wrong before. 

And if I’m wrong again, he’ll try to take my children away.

The party is my last chance to prove to my husband that I’m on the mend, that I can handle something as simple as a drinks reception without snapping under the pressure. It’s all going perfectly, until I see something in the swimming pool that changes everything. But if I can’t trust myself to believe it’s real, who will?

 

 

Review

This author really has the knack of creating stories where you don’t know who to believe, who to feel sorry for, who to blame, who is sane and who is crazy and she proves it once again.

She is like an illusionist, using smoke and mirrors to make us believe one thing while we should believe the oppostie, to make us think one thing while we should realise something else. But we don’t see it and that’s how good she is.

And then comes karma … Even the best liars don’t stand a chance with her in the neighbourhood. 🙂

One moment I thought I saw through it, concluding a bit later that I was wrong. After a while I was convinced that this time I really was looking the facts in the face … Alas 😉

I enjoyed this book. 4 stars.

Thank you, Clare Boyd and Bookouture.
