She thought she’d found the man of her dreams. She hoped their love would last forever. She never expected him to vanish into thin air. In Jackie Kabler’s latest novel, she examines the one question every hopeless romantic always asks: Is there any such thing as The Perfect Couple?

One More Chapter

Gemma was looking forward to getting home from her business trip, being enveloped in her husband’s arms, and sitting down to a home cooked meal. But that’s not what happens. Instead, she enters an empty apartment, no dinner, and a house that smells of bleach. Now she has the nagging feeling something is amiss.

With Danny MIA for two days, she goes to the cops only to discover that there is a serial killer on the loose in Bristol. Worse yet, every one of the killer’s victims looks just like Danny! Her fears escalate, but she soon realizes that there is more at risk than her husbands life.

The police are asking questions. They don’t understand why there’s barely a trace of Danny in their flat, and why no one other than Gemma has heard from him in weeks. Most of all, they suspect she isn’t telling them the entire truth. And if not, what exactly is she hiding?

The Perfect Couple is the kind of novel I can only imagine Alfred Hitchcock reading, itching to make it into a creepy whodunnit. This book isn’t just intriguing, every page drips with suspense and ominous foreboding. It doesn’t take its time easing you into the mystery either. Rather, this book bolts out of the gate, keeping you guessing from the very first page.

This story unfolds basically with two parallel timelines, as we follow the cops’ investigation on one hand and watch Gemma come undone on the other. The farther you read, the more mysterious the tale gets, with tension mounting fast and hard, pummeling until you reach the breathtaking conclusion. If you enjoy stories that keep you guessing all the way through, you are going to love The Perfect Couple.
