Publisher's Summary

Criminal profiler in training (and newlywed) Jessie Hunt, 29, discovers that dark secrets lurk in her new suburban town; when a body turns up dead, she finds herself caught in the crosshairs of her newfound friends, her husband’s secrets, her serial killer caseload - and the secrets of her own dark past.

In The Perfect Wife, criminal profiler in training Jessie Hunt is sure she's finally put the darkness of her childhood behind her. She and her husband, Kyle, just moved from a cramped downtown Los Angeles apartment into a Westport Beach mansion. Kyle's promotion has them swimming in money. And Jessie is on the verge of getting her master's degree in forensic psychology, the last step in her dream of becoming a criminal profiler. 

But soon after their arrival, Jessie begins to notice a series of strange developments. The neighbors - and their au pairs - all seem to be hiding secrets. The mysterious yacht club Kyle is desperate to join is rife with cheating spouses and with troubling rules of its own. And the notorious serial killer being held at the psychiatric hospital where Jessie is completing her degree seems to know more about her life than is normal - or safe. 

As her world starts to unravel, Jessie begins to question everything around her - including her own sanity. Has she truly uncovered a disturbing conspiracy buried within a sunny, wealthy Southern California beach town? Does the mass murderer she's studying really somehow know the origin of her private nightmares? 

Or has her tortured past finally come back to claim her?

A fast-paced psychological suspense thriller with unforgettable characters and heart-pounding suspense, The Perfect Wife is audiobook one in a riveting new series that will leave you listening late into the night.

A touch of “Silence of the Lambs” and Stepford Wives/Illuminati

I liked this book, although there was quite a bit going on with the protagonist’s character development — but I assume it’s just to set the stage for series. Jessie is finishing-up her Master’s degree in criminal profiling but is also starting a new life with her husband in the suburbs of L.A. and they join this exclusive country club that seems super sketch — but mostly just for the wives. Throughout the story Jessie makes many visits to see a notorious serial killer in a high security facility as part of her project to get her degree. All this while trying to figure out why the country club they belong to is so strange. But as I said there is a lot going on so all the aspects and details were just dipped into, likely to set the stage for the next books which I will definitely listen to. Entertaining all around, I think subsequent books will flow much better from here.

Decent story line, narration was rough!

The overall story line was decent although somewhat predictable. The narrator made the story very difficult to get through. She was very monotone with little inflection. When she did use inflection, it was usually in the wrong spot.

great!

This was a really different take on a genre that seems to have been done a thousand times. It has lots of different twists and "the husband " part is not actually the most interesting part of the story. Cant wait for the next one!
