Vincent Zandri is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The Caretaker’s Wife, Orchard Grove, and The Remains.

Best Day Ever by Kaira Rouda

Think you’ve got the perfect marriage? The perfect kids? The perfect life? Those are the questions posed by this novel’s narrator Paul Strom, an uber advertising exec who decides to treat his seemingly adoring wife, Mia, to their best day ever. But they hardly get out of the driveway before things start unravelling. By the time darkness starts to set, you begin to see what a nightmare their marriage really is.
