The Perfect Lie By Jo Spain

The Perfect Lie By Jo Spain


He jumped to his death in front of witnesses. Now his wife is charged with murder.

Five years ago, Erin Kennedy moved to New York following a family tragedy. She now lives happily with her detective husband in the scenic seaside town of Newport, Long Island. When Erin answers the door to Danny’s police colleagues one morning, it’s the start of an ordinary day. But behind her, Danny walks to the window of their fourth-floor apartment and jumps to his death.

Eighteen months later, Erin is in court, charged with her husband’s murder. Over that year and a half, Erin has learned things about Danny she could never have imagined. She thought he was perfect. She thought their life was perfect.

My Thoughts:

I liked the idea of this story and it was written well, but for me I found the middle a little slow. The story is about Erin and her husband Danny, they live a happy and normal life together until one day he walks to the window in their apartment and jumps to his death. Why? We follow the story when a little later on, Erin is charged with his murder but was it her? She can’t imagine why he would of done what he did so she goes on to find out why and what he was involved in. I liked the idea of the story and the beginning and ending was good and suspenseful.

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review. Thank you to Netgalley and Quercus.
