Book Review | The Perfect Wife by JP Delaney


The perfect life. The perfect love.

Abbie awakens in a daze with no memory of who she is or how she landed in this unsettling condition. The man by her side claims to be her husband. He’s a titan of the tech world, the founder of one of Silicon Valley’s most innovative start-ups. He tells Abbie that she is a gifted artist, an avid surfer, a loving mother to their young son, and the perfect wife. He says she had a terrible accident five years ago and that, through a huge technological breakthrough, she has been brought back from the abyss.

She is a miracle of science.

But as Abbie pieces together memories of her marriage, she begins questioning her husband’s motives–and his version of events. Can she trust him when he says he wants them to be together forever? And what really happened to Abbie half a decade ago? (Sourced from Goodreads)


This was a reread for me. I read it a while back and never did this review so I reread it to make sure I could give a current thorough review.

Abbey wakes with a memory of her wedding to find out that she is actually an AI robot created by her husband after being dead for the last five years.

He takes her from the lab/office to their home with their son who has a disability, where she is supposed to stay and not go out in public. She is not sure what is going on. She feels like she’s remembering things but they can’t be memories but instead her “brain” is filling in the gaps in her memory.

Abbey finds a locked tablet hidden that she knows had to be hers, right after she gets a messages about her phone not being secure. The messages continue and she is not sure who to trust. She takes the tablet to a shop and the police are called. She has been missing and the police suspected her husband but he went to trial but charges were dropped.

She later returns for the tablet but the tech guy wants her coding in exchange for his encryptions. He knows that there’s something wrong or she would have taken it to her husbands company. So begins the search for what happened to the real Abbey….

While I enjoyed this book, at times the timeline switch was confusing, taking me a moment to realize there had been a change in the timeline. This was not a major problem. I, also, had to re-listen the ending multiple times to understand what happened.

The story is split between what is happening now with Abbey, the AI and a look at Abbey’s past. I enjoyed listening to this Saskatoon Maarleveld, Graham Halstead, Evan Morton and JP Delaney’s narration of this book. I think it was done well.

This was generously given to me via NetGalley for my honest review.
