A Good Marriage by Kimberly McCreight

Dealing with problems in her own marriage and now having to deal with defending a friend for a murder that Lizzie knew he didn't commit was not what Lizzie was looking forward to.

Lizzie was friends with Zach in college and knew he wasn't capable of murder, but did you really ever fully know someone?  The married couples in this book definitely didn't know each other and had secrets from each other and from friends.

Zach and Amanda lived in a posh neighborhood.  It was a life Amanda didn't grow up with.  In fact, Amanda grew up impoverished.  Did her childhood have something to do with her being murdered?

We see glimpses of Amanda before she met Zach and we always see Amanda as meek, but pleasant.  We also feel her fear each time she gets a call that only has heavy breathing in the response to her hello.  She knows who it is, but we are kept in the dark.

A GOOD MARRIAGE dragged until one-third of the way, but once secrets became revealed, the investigation got underway, and the characters confessed, the interest and tension definitely picked up.

If you like books with twists, turns, secrets, and surprises from all angles, you won’t want to miss A GOOD MARRIAGE.  4/5

This book was given to me by the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.
