The Perfect Couple by Jackie Kabler

about book:

The perfect couple … or the perfect lie?

A devoted wife…
A year ago, Gemma met the love of her life, Danny. Since then, their relationship has been perfect. But one evening, Danny doesn’t return home.

A missing husband…
Gemma turns to the police. She is horrified by what she discovers – a serial killer is on the loose in Bristol. When she sees photos of the victims she is even more stunned…they all look just like Danny.

Who would you believe?

But the police are suspicious. Why has no one apart from Gemma heard from Danny in weeks? Why is there barely a trace of him in their flat? Is she telling them the truth, or is this marriage hiding some very dark secrets?

my thoughts:

What a fun and thrilling story! The Perfect Couple by Jackie Kabler is the perfect summer read. You get drama, mystery, and thrills - what more could you want? 

Gemma and Danny have just moved to Bristol. They are eager to start fresh in a new city. Gemma has just returned from a work trip to find Danny not at home. She's surprised since he promised to have dinner waiting for her.  Instead she finds an empty home and no way to get ahold of her husband. He's just started a new job, but hasn't received his work cell phone; so instead of calling one another, they have been emailing each other. Gemma figures he's working late, so she goes to bed. Except, Danny doesn't come home - ever. She finally decides to talk to the cops and file a missing person report. She's frantic with worry. What happened to her husband? Over at the police station, they are dealing with a murder investigation. When they hear about Danny, they are shocked to see that he looks just like their two victims - they could be triplets. Is it a crazy coincidence, or is there something more to Danny's missing person's case? Hmm...and just how innocent is Gemma in all of this? The cops are soon pointing fingers, and Gemma is forced to figure out what really happened to Danny.  Will she find out the truth in time? Is Danny still alive? Are the cops too eager to place blame to really investigate what happened? So many questions and so many mysteries to solve in this exciting new book by Kabler. 

I would happily recommend The Perfect Couple to fans of Kabler and to anyone looking for their next great mystery-thriller - you will LOVE this book!

I'd be pretty freaked if my husband was missing and he resembled all the victims of a serial killing on the loose.
