Synopsis: Lizzie Kitsakis is a senior associate at a NYC law firm working insane hours to make partner. Lizzie receives a call from an old college friend, Zach Grayson, who is currently an inmate at Rikers asking for help. His wife, Amanda, has been found dead at the bottom of the stairs in their Brooklyn brownstone and Zach is the primary suspect. Lizzie begins to unrvavel the secrets in Zach and Amanda's marriage, in their neighborhood and friend group, and reflects on secrets in her own marriage.

Review: I read Reconstructing Amelia a few years back and really enjoyed Kimberly's writing style and was so excited to read A Good Marriage. This is a slow burn about marriage, power dynamics, and protecting your family. I loved the multiple POVs from the characters, dual timelines, and the courtroom transcripts added another layer. I read a lot in the domestic suspense/legal thriller genre and thought this was well paced, smart, and originial.
