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. 


  • 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!

    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...

    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.
  • A let down

    By RandomBookReader
    I was hoping for a much better plot development and ending, but was disappointed at the end. On a positive note, this was a very easy read. Just not as thrilling as I’d hoped it would be.
  • The suspense is real!
