Book Review 4/5 Romance + Thriller = My Lovely Wife. Uneasiness crept across me from the first chapter. Going into this book blindly, I found it completely intriguing with a twist at the beginning- a “wait, what?” moment. I think Downing did a great job delving into the mind of our unnamed family man, although at times I found it hard to reconcile these loving parents with the storyline. Also, I wanted more from Millicent’s POV. Even though it felt like the book was lacking half the story the ending tied up all loose ends. Overall, Downing does a great job of laying out the clues like random tokens that you have collected along the way only to discover that they are actually pieces of a puzzle. This read picked up fast and the second half of this book was slightly predictable yet still exciting to read. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good thriller. Fast paced. Easy read. A little unbelievable, but fun in a fantastical way. Twist on the normal serial killer story.
Audiobook Review 4/5 Deep and disturbing. Pittu does a nice job with the range of emotions from murderer to loving father. He is expressive and engaging. As a bonus, he has narrated cleanly enough for me to speed up the tempo. This book is great for fast paced walking!
Book Food Review 4/5 Food has a satisfying presence, with an introduction at every punctual family dinner. Clean, healthy and controlled, my husband will appreciate this menu. 😉

I love mushrooms and cheese. I will have to try this! My mouth is watering 🤤
It was just so slow to me but many others have loved it!
I love CoHo but also don’t like drawn out plots–maybe this isn’t the best book of hers for me to…
Oh my gosh!! Thank you so much! That means a lot 💙
