I read this book years ago. When I was in High school. My father knew I was an avid reader and brought home a box of books from a local bookstore that was closing down. This was one of the many books that was in it. When I started to read this book it captivated me. The description of characters Tess weak and feable, Dillion burnt out drunk with demons to fight, Beckett sweet smooth talking cop by day cold blooded killer by night. The book keeps you entertained.

Great read

I actually started with book 4. Found out it was a series sooo I just had to grab book 1. Love it. I was definitely not let down. Characters are lovable. Book 2 just came in about to start it.

You will be spellbound....

Theresa Matthews never knew what hit her when she met Officer Jim Beckett. All she did know was that someone in her life finally loved her. With no complaints, Theresa did everything Jim asked of her. She kept a perfect home, cooked meals on time, and gave him a baby daughter that he appeared to love. Hiding behind his cruel facade, Theresa discovered an evil man with no soul. A killer that she was a part of stopping. After two years of running, and a new identity, Tess Williams emerges. When Jim escapes from prison, Tess find J.T. Dillon, an burntout ex-mercenary whom she talks into training her for one month. All Tess wants is to be able to protect her daughter from the monster that has sworn to return to kill her.J.T. Dillon has his own demons to fight, and he doesn't need the responsiblity of protecting Tess. Finding his way through a hellish childhood, J.T. came out scarred, especially since he knew that he didn't protect his younger sister, Marion, from their father. Now, after two weeks training with Tess, everything with Beckett comes to head and J.T. knows that he will not lose another woman that he loves.The Perfect Husband is an exceptional story about a pyshcopath who is not only sly, but intelligent as well. Continually escaping authorities, Beckett knows that no one will ever be able to catch him. Gardner does an extrodinary job of portraying a killer. The romance that was mixed in was intense and erotic, but didn't take away from the suspense of the story.Pick it up!

Check the closet!

This is my first book by Lisa Gardner, and it will definitely not be my last. This book grabs you from the beginning and won't let go. Once you pick it up, good luck putting it down. I loved the characters and Jim Beckett is one creepy villian and a master of disguise. You'll be looking in the closets and over your shoulder when you read this one!

Get plenty of sleep before you read this one!!!

A co-worker handed me this book and insisted I read it. Once I started, I didn't put it down until 2AM that night. This is one of the most suspenseful books I have ever read, with a villain so heart-stoppingly evil that you will constantly look over your shoulder as you are reading. It's only shortcoming is in the romance department. Although, Tess Williams and JT Dillon are sexy and strong protagonists, they seem to fall in more in lust than love and their sexual relationship is rougher than one might expect a woman who was physically abused by her father and terrified by her serial killer husband to enjoy. But this slight oversight does not detract from the overall enjoyment of this very well crafted thriller. Highly recommended!!!!!!!
