Criminal profiler in training (and newlywed) Jessie Hunt, 29, discovers that dark secrets lurk in her new suburban town; when a body turns up dead, she finds herself caught in the crosshairs of her newfound friends, her husband’s secrets, her serial killer caseload—and the secrets of her own dark past.

In THE PERFECT WIFE (A Jessie Hunt Psychological Suspense Thriller—Book One), Criminal profiler-in-training Jessie Hunt is sure she's finally put the darkness of her childhood behind her. She and her husband, Kyle, just moved from a cramped downtown Los Angeles apartment into a Westport Beach mansion. Kyle's promotion has them swimming in money. And Jessie is on the verge of getting her Master's degree in forensic psychology, the last step in her dream of becoming a criminal profiler. 

But soon after their arrival, Jessie begins to notice a series of strange developments. The neighbors—and their au pairs—all seem to be hiding secrets. The mysterious yacht club Kyle is desperate to join is rife with cheating spouses, and with troubling rules of its own. And the notorious serial killer being held at the psychiatric hospital where Jessie is completing her degree seems to know more about her life than is normal—or safe. 

As her world starts to unravel, Jessie begins to question everything around her—including her own sanity. Has she truly uncovered a disturbing conspiracy buried within a sunny, wealthy Southern California beach town? Does the mass murderer she's studying really somehow know the origin of her private nightmares? 

Or has her tortured past finally come back to claim her?

Book #2—THE PERFECT BLOCK—is also now available!

A fast-paced psychological suspense thriller with unforgettable characters and heart-pounding suspense, THE PERFECT WIFE is book #1 in a riveting new series that will leave you turning pages late into the night. 


  • Good read

    Awesome book
  • Slow and kinda boring

    By Anev88
    I wanted to find a series to start and I stumbled on this. Since it was free I gave it a chance but it was slow and not much exciting happened. There was a ton of grammatical errors which is just so annoying. I won’t be continuing the series especially since the next book costs money

    Loved it- great book.
  • Good airplane book.

    By ehbookreader
    So I read a review before I bought this talking about how great this book was in the beginning but it got sloppy and rushed towards the end and I completely agree. It’s a decent book, if it would have kept the same pace at the end that was in the beginning it would have been a really good book. Still it was a page turner, I tried putting it down to go to sleep at a decent time but I couldn’t. I got back up and finished it because I had to know how it ended. All in all I would recommend to a friend trying to find a book to read on a plane.
  • Great storyline, could’ve been better executed

    By Ima Wanderluster
    This book is full of typos and grammatical errors, and the book doesn’t flow as well as it could. The storyline is great - I just felt that the plot was either too slow or too fast.
  • Short but a page turner

    By Sanhueza Family
    This novel is pretty short comparatively speaking. It's decent for a storyline but there could have been way more character development and storyline included to really get you hooked on the characters but it felt rushed and therefore a little flat. It's a short, fun read that really makes Newport Beach (Westport Beach) (I live here) look like suburban hell but written from the point of view of an LA lover I guess it's to be expected because of the OC/LA rivalry. I love a good crime novel so I'm hoping the author improves her character development.
  • Amazing!

    By LittleRed.xoxo
    This book was amazing! It reads well, it isn’t slow getting into the story like some of the other free books I have read.. And I honestly didn’t expect it to end the way it does. (no spoilers!) I can’t wait to buy the second book!
  • Good read, but saw it coming...

    By KrisReader
    I enjoyed this book, it only took 3 days to read, but it’s a bit predictable.

    This story was pretty good but seemed like it could be a lifetime movie it’s so predictable if you ask me but other than a pretty nice story.
