Our love story is simple. I met a gorgeous woman. We fell in love. We had kids. We moved to the suburbs. We told each other our biggest dreams, and our darkest secrets. And then we got bored.
We look like a normal couple. We’re your neighbors, the parents of your kid’s friend, the acquaintances you keep meaning to get dinner with.
We all have secrets to keeping a marriage alive.
Ours just happens to be getting away with murder.

I received this book as an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

When I read the description of this book on NetGalley I was instantly intrigued. I wanted to know what the heck was making this couple keep their marriage alive by murdering people?! I mean maybe take a European vacation or something right?

The book started with a quick little background on the couple and their lives and then it just dives right into how they are murdering women to keep their marriage alive. At first you just see that they are on the hunt for a new girl and then you start to learn how it started and also how it has changed; especially for the husband (his real name is not given).

The plot was great it kept you guessing at every page and then there was just surprise after surprise of what brought them to where they are today and how things were changing. You were left guessing on if the husband and wife were still a team or if they were turning on each other and if things were going to work themselves out. Then you wonder are they going to get caught?! It was great, don’t want to give away too much detail.

I thought the characters were well written. They are some nasty/crazy people; but in a good sense because that is part of what makes this book. You even start to see how their personalities are rubbing off on their kids! There are some smaller supporting characters that help move the story along. The writing was well done and the story flowed nicely.

I would definitely recommend this book.
