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?

    I enjoyed the book. It was different than what I’m used to reading. I would’ve enjoyed more suspense. The end of the book, left me 😳 but that was the last 3 seconds of the book.

    I finally got to pick up on doing some reading and stumbled to this book. At the time it was free (hopefully it still is). Ever since I purchased it I’ve been reading every chance I got. It’s such a thriller. Im on to reading book #2 the perfect block. Give it a shot you won’t be disappointed.

    I have just started back reading in my spare time and this is the first book I chose. I work from home 7am to 3:30pm and I read in every bit of spare time I had, paying little attention to my boyfriend, haha! But I absolutely loved the thrill of this book and will be continuing to read more from Blake Pierce!!
