When Paris Peralta’s famous husband is found dead in the bathtub, it doesn’t take much time to pin the blame on the much younger, yoga-instructing spouse. But Paris isn’t your typical trophy wife. She enjoys having her own job, she seems to actually love her husband, and – most importantly – she doesn’t want any of her husband’s celebrity status. That’s because Paris has been running from something and with the notoriety that comes with a high profile murder trial, it’s about to find her.
While this thriller was somewhat predictable, there was something about Paris and Jimmy’s relationship that I really liked. It’s probably what most hooked me as the book explored the idea of trauma and abuse as powerful motivators. This is a good one for fans of Ginny and Georgia, whose second season just dropped and was promptly binged by yours truly.
4 out of 5 stars.
