Criminal profiler in training (and newlywed) Jessie Hunt, 29, discovers that dark secrets lurk in her new suburban town; when a body turns up dead, she finds herself caught in the crosshairs of her newfound friends, her husband’s secrets, her serial killer caseload—and the secrets of her own dark past.

In THE PERFECT WIFE (A Jessie Hunt Psychological Suspense Thriller—Book One), Criminal profiler-in-training Jessie Hunt is sure she's finally put the darkness of her childhood behind her. She and her husband, Kyle, just moved from a cramped downtown Los Angeles apartment into a Westport Beach mansion. Kyle's promotion has them swimming in money. And Jessie is on the verge of getting her Master's degree in forensic psychology, the last step in her dream of becoming a criminal profiler. 

But soon after their arrival, Jessie begins to notice a series of strange developments. The neighbors—and their au pairs—all seem to be hiding secrets. The mysterious yacht club Kyle is desperate to join is rife with cheating spouses, and with troubling rules of its own. And the notorious serial killer being held at the psychiatric hospital where Jessie is completing her degree seems to know more about her life than is normal—or safe. 

As her world starts to unravel, Jessie begins to question everything around her—including her own sanity. Has she truly uncovered a disturbing conspiracy buried within a sunny, wealthy Southern California beach town? Does the mass murderer she's studying really somehow know the origin of her private nightmares? 

Or has her tortured past finally come back to claim her?

Book #2—THE PERFECT BLOCK—is also now available!

A fast-paced psychological suspense thriller with unforgettable characters and heart-pounding suspense, THE PERFECT WIFE is book #1 in a riveting new series that will leave you turning pages late into the night.

    Blake Pierce does it again, catches you and reels you in. Can’t wait to read the rest of the series.

    Back to my favorite genre, mystery thrillers. This one, set in CA, what is clearly the Newport Beach area, thinly disguised as Westport Beach. Our characters have moved there from downtown LA in an upgrade on job and housing. There are a few surprises in the mix which I will not reveal for fear of spoiler alert. Regardless it is rather exciting and surprising, worth checking out!

    Amazing, captivating and addicting. I for sure thought it was going to be one of those predictable stories with predictable plot twists but it kept me on the edge of my seat and I couldn’t stop reading.

    Pretty good book. Since it’s free, I’d download and read if you just need something to occupy you and kill some time. It was a bit unbelievable and a bit predictable but still interesting enough to motivate me to the end. Probably won’t continue the series though.

    There were some good parts, but for me it wasn’t believable for the most part. It went slow in the beginning, then seemed to rush towards the end.
