"FABULOUS." --B.A. Paris, New York Times bestselling author of Behind Closed Doors and The Breakdown THE PERFECT MARRIAGE IS THE PERFECT ILLUSION. Paul Strom has the perfect life: a glittering career as an advertising executive, a beautiful wife, two healthy boys and a big house in a wealthy suburb. And he's the perfect husband: breadwinner, protector, provider. That's why he's planned a romantic weekend for his wife, Mia, at their lake house, just the two of them. And he's promised today will be the best day ever. But as Paul and Mia drive out of the city and toward the countryside, a spike of tension begins to wedge itself between them and doubts start to arise. How much do they trust each other? And how perfect is their marriage, or any marriage, really? Forcing us to ask ourselves just how well we know those who are closest to us, Best Day Ever crackles with dark energy, spinning ever tighter toward its shocking conclusion. In the vein of The Couple Next Door, Kaira Rouda weaves a gripping, tautly suspenseful tale of deception and betrayal dark enough to destroy a marriage...or a life. Praise for Best Day Ever "Highly entertaining and truly surprising!" --Kate Moretti, New York Times bestselling author of The Vanishing Year "Best Day Ever is a creepy, spine-tingling and utterly addictive tale of domestic suspense." --Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke, bestselling authors of The Good Widow

Named one of POPSUGAR's 25 Books to Read This Fall A tensely written, shocking book that will hold readers on the edge of their seats to the very last page. -Publishers Weekly We read Best Day Ever in one sitting-ripping through the pages with a breathless urgency. The book takes place over just twenty-four-hours, making you desperate to know: what exactly does the seemingly perfect Paul Strom have planned for his wife when he takes her away for the weekend? Here's what we can tell you: whatever you think it is, you're wrong. Best Day Ever isn't even close to what you're expecting. Best Day Ever is a creepy, spine-tingling and utterly addictive tale of domestic suspense.
- Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke, bestselling authors of The Good Widow Riveting and provocative, Best Day Ever is a gripping suspense that plays with your mind and makes you wonder how well you truly know your spouse. Accomplished author Kaira Rouda deftly navigates a day in the life of Paul and Mia Strom where what appears to be a perfect marriage is not all what it seems. Fast-paced, dark, and slightly disturbing, you won't be able to put this book down until its jaw-dropping ending. Rouda kept me glued to my seat. Absolutely brilliant!
- Kerry Lonsdale, Wall Street Journal bestselling author of Everything We Keep His voice will grip you. Through self-conscious charm and a chilling wit, Rouda's narrator creates laugh-out-loud moments that will feel like guilty pleasures in light of the story's high-impact conclusion. This may well be the most entertaining read of your year.
