The Perfect Husband by Lisa Gardner 

I’ve just realised that all these latest reviews are for books I’ve read up to 6 months ago so apologies if they are a bit sparse at times! 

I remember reading this and not long into it thought to myself ‘I hope this is good’. I’m pretty sure it wasn’t! While the story wasn’t implausible, it wasn’t really that interesting. I really disliked the characters, especially Tess, and her ex-marine (whose name I can’t even remember!). I found them both supremely irritating!

Goodreads description:

“What would you do if the man of your dreams hides the soul of a killer? Jim Beckett was everything she’d ever dreamed of…But two years after Tess married the decorated cop and bore his child, she helped put him behind bars for savagely murdering ten women. Even locked up in a maximum security prison, he vowed he would come after her and make her pay. Now the cunning killer has escaped–and the most dangerous game of all begins…. After a lifetime of fear, Tess will do something she’s never done before. She’s going to learn to protect her daughter and fight back, with the help of a burned-out ex-marine. As the largest manhunt four states have ever seen mobilizes to catch Beckett, the clock winds down to the terrifying reunion between husband and wife. And Tess knows that this time, her only choices are to kill–or be killed.
Personally, I wouldn’t be recommending this book to anyone! There are much better books out there!
