The Perfect Marriage Summary

James and Jessica Sommers are celebrating their first blissful year together, an unexpected second chance at true love. Unfortunately, their newfound shot at happiness is not without collateral damage.

There’s Jessica’s ex-husband. He pretends for all the world that he’s resilient and strong. If only for the sake of their teenage son, profoundly vulnerable in his own way. James’s ex has taken a different road. Bitter, vengeful, and threatening, she wants only the worst for the happy couple. And then there’s the couple themselves: Are they truly as in love as they seem?

When James enters into an extraordinarily profitable, if shady, transaction with a beautiful art dealer, Jessica and James’s seemingly perfect marriage takes a dark and tragic turn.

Amid suspicions, tested loyalties, revenge, and guilt, no one escapes unscathed from sins committed in the name of love.

TUL Brief Review

One of my March 2021 Amazon First Reads selections, The Perfect Marriage is an easily digestible domestic thriller. Although not one of the best or most gripping murder mysteries that I’ve read, for a fast-paced and escapist novel, I enjoyed Mitzner’s The Perfect Marriage.

This is one of the first mysteries that I solved early on, and I appreciated The Perfect Marriage as a free, pandemic read.
