A RELIABLE WIFE starts off excellent but later contains circumstances that cheapen it. This book becomes too unbelievable. Although many would argue that, as fiction, it should not need to be believable, the fact is, the highest ratings go to those novels that grab readers and suck them in because they believe it. Even science fiction presents a story that readers come to believe, at least as long as they're reading it.

But A RELIABLE WIFE grabs the reader initially with its story of a lonely man who writes a personal ad for a reliable wife only to be deceived. He gets his wife, but she's not who she says she is, and her motives aren't pure. From there, though, the story disappoints. It's not bad, just not as good as its beginning promises.

There was a lot of hype surrounding this book. I believe because of this I found myself a bit disappointed by the end of the book. Goolrick's writing is well-done... the story has a twist, which is always a must for good mystery/suspense stories, but I can't name it... I just wasn't won over in the end.
