  • “On the surface the book is a highly competent chiller, but beneath, like a silent, bolted…room, there’s a much bigger story about the nature of feminine experience. An accomplished debut.”

    - Hilary Mantel, New York Times bestselling author of Wolf Hall
  • “How To Be a Good Wife is at once claustrophobic, startling, and hauntingly beautiful. It’s that amazing, awful kind of book that will stay with you long after you wish it would let you go.”

    - Liza Klaussmann, New York Times bestselling author of Tigers in Red Weather
  • “A compelling, twisty tale of deception and distrust. Beautifully written and very clever.”

    - Elizabeth Haynes, New York Times bestselling author of Into the Darkest Corner
  • “Chilling…Chapman excels at creating tension and suspense.”

    - Publishers Weekly
  • “[A] clever chiller.”

    - Booklist
  • “Extraordinary.”

    - New York Times Book Review
  • “There’s no murder, mayhem, car chases, or drug deals in Chapman’s taut suburban noir, but a chilling drama played out in well-planned increments. This powerful debut successfully weaves a tale of deceit that plays with the reader’s mind. The unexpected ending is eerie.”
