The Perfect Wife (A Jessie Hunt Psychological Suspense Thriller—Book One) by Blake Pierce Book Summary

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?

Books #2--#15 are also available!

A fast-paced psychological suspense thriller with unforgettable characters and heart-pounding suspense, THE PERFECT WIFE is book #1 in a riveting new series that will leave you turning pages late into the night.

Bad bad badOh my god, this was abysmal. I am an avid reader, and thrillers are definitely my favorite, but this is so boring and bad. It feels like a C-plot in a really bad drama series that’s six seasons in. The grammar is awful, Jessie is a typical Mary Sue who gets congratulated for being soooo awesome at every turn, and the twist ending is so easy to guess, I figured it out the second she started her practicum. I seriously doubt an adult who graduated high school wrote this..Score: 1/5

Poor editing as usualI agree with others that the ending was rushed. I enjoy the stories, but the books themselves have so many typos and grammatical errors, I can’t see paying for the next. I don’t know how this author charges what she does for her books and sells so many books when she never corrects what readers point out time and time again..Score: 3/5

Bad grammarThis book was interesting but has a lot of missing words from sentences, often the wrong word has been used in a sentence. Which makes the book frustrating to read and take seriously.

Stepford LambAuthor American. Female. Started on the self published route and has churned a gazillion titles, all of them series involving FFPs (feisty female protagonists): Riley Paige, Mackenzie White, Avery Black, Keri Locke, the list goes on. Jessie Hunt appeared in 2018 and there are already 15 in the series (I think), all with "Perfect" in the title. (The other series have related titles too). According to her website, Ms B is "an avid reader and lifelong fan of the mystery and thriller genres," and "loves to hear from you, so please feel free" blah, blah. In brief Jessie is 29, has a troubled past, and is nearing the end of training as a forensic psychologist. She wants to be, you guessed it, an FBI profiler. The fictional world can't get enough of them it seems. Our gal and her hunky investment adviser husband (another oxymoron, like the perfect wife) have just moved from DTLA (downtown Los Angeles for the uninitiated) to Orange County because his firm's opened a new branch there. The neighbourhood and its peeps have a distinctly Stepford Wives vibe, which our gal susses out immediately although hubby doesn't see it. Meanwhile, she's swapped from USC to UC Irvine and acquired a new supervisor, then gets herself into a Clarice-Hannibal thing with a psycho killer incarcerated in a secret lock up facility nobody talks about. What could possibly go wrong, right? Nothing unpredictable, that's for sure. Writing Eager high schooler with stories to tell and limited interest in editing. Bottom line I read it because it was free, okay? Don't judge me..Score: 1/5

Nothing PERFECT about this!Blake Pierce's books are atrocious and an insult to serious fiction readers worldwide. The stories are something that a grade school student could slam together in a very short amount of time. The number of typos, grammatical errors, and plain bad English is unforgivable but when an author starts mixing up the names of their characters there is seriously something wrong, and Blake does this in every book that I have read. Blake does zero research which can probably be forgiven as none is required for his/her stories which is why Blake's books are so blah. I only read Blake's books when advertised as free on Bookbub (thankfully I have not parted with any of my hard earned cash) just to see if he/she has grown as an author after such prolific self publishing...unfortunately I have been disappointed on each occasion. Blake Pierce should consider doing a few writers’ workshops. Blake needs to put more time and effort and research into writing stories that will grab the attention of people for their intricacy, attention to detail, plot twists, and intrigue rather than churning out the pulp that we have come to expect from him/her. It is also time for Blake to stop self publishing and employ some professionals...editors, proof readers, copy editors...people that will actually tell him/her the truth, that people are not interested in such predictable, clichéd, recipe book fiction. NEVER AGAIN!.Score: 1/5
