#MMBBR #Review A Perfect Wife (Sami Saxton, #4) by @DouglasWickard


"We make up horrors to help us cope with the real ones." ~ Stephen King 

What would you do?
What choice would you make?
How far would you go to erase the past?

SMITTY FOWLER, (the Tri State Serial Killer) terrorized the rural areas of NY, PA and NJ for years. During Fowler's reign, six teenage girls were killed, each one indoctrinated into his macabre collection of dead wives. Sami Saxton made international news for single-handedly killing Smitty Fowler. Jeanette, his wife, wasn't so lucky. Recently diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and left alone to raise her daughter, Amanda, Jeanette's options seemed limited. This is her story...

She had written the suicide note before, many times… but had always thrown it away. Sometimes she would take a match to the paper, and watch as it slowly burned in the kitchen sink, the edges folding in on themselves, the corners crumpling inward – the colors changing from lava red, to black, then gray -- before collapsing into its papery defeat.
Today would be different…
Today would be another story…

Douglas Wickard

Douglas Wickard is a brilliant author.  I love his books, they draw you in and keep you there until the very end.  This is the fourth book in the Sami Saxton series.  In this book with see the life of Jeanette Fowler - her husband was the Tri State Serial killer who was caught by Sami.  There are other plots and subplots throughout the book that will hold your interest.  Watching Jeanette progress through the book is very compelling.  I would recommend this book.  I give it 4 stars.
