“Aimee Molloy has a reputation for being the "Master of Misdirection." There is no better example of her expertise than Goodnight Beautiful. Handsome Dr. Sam Statler is a newlywed and is madly in love with his bride, Annie. He is a therapist and works out of an office in a home. There is a vent in the ceiling and his sessions can be heard in the closet of another floor. A certain someone is fascinated by all the patient's cases. That's about all I can tell you except this is one heck of a wild ride. The twists and turns are real stunners that I never saw coming. Not only is the story intriguing, but the narration deserves five stars.”Katie, Buttonwood Books and Toys
From “master of clever misdirection” (Kirkus Reviews) Aimee Molloy, author of the New York Times bestseller The Perfect Mother, comes an irresistible psychological thriller featuring a newly married woman whose life is turned upside down when her husband goes missing.
Newlyweds Sam Statler and Annie Potter are head over heels, and excited to say good-bye to New York City and start a life together in Sam's sleepy hometown upstate. Or, it turns out, a life where Annie spends most of her time alone while Sam, her therapist husband, works long hours in his downstairs office, tending to the egos of his (mostly female) clientele. Little does Sam know that through a vent in his ceiling, every word of his sessions can be heard from the room upstairs. The pharmacist's wife, contemplating a divorce. The well-known painter whose boyfriend doesn’t satisfy her in bed. Who could resist listening? Everything is fine until the French girl in the green mini Cooper shows up, and Sam decides to go to work and not come home, throwing a wrench into Sam and Annie's happily ever after.
Showcasing Molloy’s deft ability to subvert norms and culminating in the kind of stunning twist that is becoming her trademark, Goodnight Beautiful is a thrilling tale of domestic suspense that not only questions assumptions but defies expectations.
