Beware! Perfection has a dark side!

Frustrated with their busy schedules, Murphy Thornton and Jessica Faraday attempt to find togetherness by scheduling a weekly date night. The last thing Jessica expected for her date night was a couple's gourmet cooking course at the Stepford Kitchen Studio, owned by Chef Natalie Stepford--the embodiment of feminine perfection.

When Natalie ends up dead and Murphy goes missing, the Thorny Rose detectives must peel back the layers of Natalie Stepford's flawless life to discover that perfection has a very sinister dark side.

This cover is beyond gorgeous and the story is even better Ms. Lauren Carr, knock my senses again with her new book Murder by Perfection. She could be perfectly mingling our minds in her twisted story and characters. This book never disappoint me just like her other stories. Success is nothing when you are not satisfied of your status. There are people that are willing to do bad things to get something from someone. This book will keep you entertained until the last page. It is sweet to read stories of one of your favorite couples update. As always, reading mystery books intrigues me especially from one of your favorite author. It never gets old. I loved this story and how the characters brings justice. It is a must read.

Murder by Perfection brings us back to Jessica’s and Murphy’s lives and how they are dealing with their first year of marriage while both pursuing their career goals. Their ups and downs were just like other couples, always striving to put their marriage first, unfortunately demands from outside on their time make making time for each other difficult. Spats and fights ensue, and angry words are left between them. Then the unthinkable happens and all are left with an urgency to make things right. This was another tense read, but I think more so as the family is really pulling together to see that a tragedy does not end up falling into their laps as they all race against time to set things to right. I really liked seeing the familial love of father and son, brother and brother, and husband and wife. Again there is a lot going on in this story, many moving parts that author Carr expertly handles to make a tight story of thrilling suspense and mystery. The main story plot gave me the creeps as always anything like that does. As per usual we have the irresistible dogs and a fast becoming favorite AI character- Nigel the butler. There is some mature content and a little bit of language, again if you like shows like Castle, you will enjoy this book. I received a complimentary copy of this novel. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.
