The Perfect Wife
In my opinion...
Oh my goodness, not only have I just discovered that JP Delaney is a he not a she…he also writes as Anthony Capella, which means that he wrote one of my favourite books, the one which I kept giving to people and having to rebuy- The Food of Love.
Is there no end to this man’s talents as a multi faceted writer?
This book is unputdownable, absorbing, creepy, challenging- l adored it! If you were intrigued by The Stepford Wives you’ll love it too. Just how does someone come up with a plot like this?
I’ve been at several conferences recently where there have been keynote speakers from Silicone Valley, this novel reinforces many unsettling things that I have heard and makes you think, maybe, just maybe it’s not too far from the truth….

"There's something I have to explain, my love," he says, taking your hand in his. "That wasn't a dream. It was an upload."
Abbie wakes in a hospital bed with no memory of how she got there. The man by her side explains that he's her husband. He's a titan of the tech world, the founder of one of Silicon Valley's most innovative startups. He tells Abbie she's a gifted artist, a doting mother to their young son, and the perfect wife.
Five years ago, she suffered a terrible accident. Her return from the abyss is a miracle of science, a breakthrough in artificial intelligence that has taken him half a decade to achieve.
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 for ever? And what really happened to her, half a decade ago?
An unputdownable 5 bubbly glasses!
