Book Review: "The Perfect Marriage" by Jeneva Rose

His mistress is dead. His wife is his only hope.

I’ve been meaning to read this for a while, as I’ve really enjoyed Rose’s other books. And wow, talk about twisty!!

“That’s the thing about relationships, you never really know what’s going on in them, unless you’re a part of them.”

Sarah is a successful criminal defense attorney, one of the best around. She’s a named partner at her law firm and she’s doing extraordinarily well.

Her husband Adam may be the total opposite. His writing career has never taken off the way he hoped, and he spends most of his time resenting Sarah for working so hard. So he embarks upon an affair with Kelly, a young waitress at the cafe near his and Sarah’s summer house.

One night he and Kelly make love and then Adam heads home to Sarah. The next morning Kelly is found murdered in Adam and Sarah’s bed in the summer house. And Adam is arrested for murder. There’s a lot of evidence pointing toward his conviction. So who is his best bet to defend him? Sarah, of course. Could he have murdered Kelly? Does she want to know if he did?

This was a wild ride. Some of it was a little unbelievable and I called a few of the twists, but I couldn’t put this book down. It definitely turned the cheating husband/scorned wife thing on its ear!!
