“What’s not to love in Kate White’s latest? . . . . Such A Perfect Wife is deep and dark and twisty, and packed with a delicious array of questionable characters, each harboring their own secrets..”
—Kimberly Belle, international  bestselling author of The Marriage Lie

Blonde. Beautiful. A loving mother.
And missing since Monday.

On a sunny morning in late September, Shannon Blaine, a wife and mother of two, set off for a jog along the roads near her home in Lake George, New York. It was her usual a.m. routine after dropping the kids at school…except on this day she never returned. Is her husband lying when he says he has no idea where she is? Could Shannon have split on her own, overwhelmed by the pressures of life? Or is she the victim of a sexual predator?

True crime writer Bailey Weggins heads north from New York City to report on the mysterious disappearance. An anonymous tip soon leads her to a grisly, bone-chilling discovery. Every town has its secrets, Bailey reminds herself, and nothing is ever as perfect as it seems. She keeps digging for answers until she unearths the stunning and terrifying truth.
