About the book
Perfect wife. Perfect life. Perfect crime.
Anthony is not the man everyone believes him to be. And Emelia is not the woman he wants her to be.
Theirs was a whirlwind romance, Anthony was the doting boyfriend, the charismatic and successful career man who swept her off her feet. But now Emelia is trapped in a marriage of dark secrets and obsession. She is no more than something Anthony wants to ‘fix’, one of his pet projects.
Emelia has no escape from the life that Anthony insists on controlling, so she shares her story through the only means she can – her blog. Yet Anthony can never find out. Forced to hide behind a false name, Emelia knows the only way that Anthony will allow her to leave him, is death.
Trapped with a man she knows is trying to kill her, Emelia is determined that someone will hear her story and Anthony will meet his ends. That everyone will discover the truth.
What have I just read? That’s the thought that dominated my mind for a long time after putting this book down. To think it’s even loosely based on actual true stories is utterly terrifying.
And what a super choice of name for this book!
You can take nothing at face value and, look, that’s all I’m going to say about that! Naomi has given us all a masterclass in how to set up and deliver a flawless domestic psychological thriller and I won’t be the one to ruin it for everyone else by being too in-depth.
All is not what it seems.
Thanks so, so much to Aria Fiction for my copy of this book in return for an honest review.
It’s what I’d class as one of those books you need to take breaks from here and there just to take it all in but you absolutely can’t put it down because you want to squeeze every, single second with it into your day. “Unputdownable” basically!!
I was absolutely enthralled by it.
