Her Perfect Husband

(The second book in the Detective Jo Boden series)
A novel by

She thinks he’s perfect. But is he playing her for a fool?

In a tangle of twisted passions and lies, the path of love leads to obsession and murder.

Sophie Latham is a successful businesswoman used to getting what she wants. At thirty-nine, with her biological clock ticking, she wants a baby and marriage to her gorgeous personal trainer, Ollie Harmon.

He’s five years younger, and her family think he’s not good enough. But she marries him three months after they first meet.

What Sophie doesn’t know, is Ollie has a younger half-sister. Kristin Kelly is a supermodel; used by men her entire life and hounded by the paparazzi, she’s ended up the trophy wife of a controlling billionaire, Sir Gerald Sullivan.

When Ged is accused of murder, Sophie must choose. Can she lie to the police to protect her fragile sister-in-law? Detective Jo Boden, from the Major Investigations Team, is asking probing questions.

Inevitably, Ged and Sophie lock horns; then Kristin tells Sophie a terrible secret. Ollie is desperate to rescue his sister from the abusive clutches of her wealthy husband. And Sophie knows she must help.

But how? As Sophie’s fairytale romance spirals into a waking nightmare, she discovers she’s neither as smart nor as good as she thinks.

A dark psychological thriller full of twists and turns for fans of British crime fiction, like Paula Hawkins: Girl on a Train and Lisa Jewell: The Night She Disappeared.
