Format: Hardcover

My Rating: 5 Stars + Top Books of 2018 On their first date back in law school, Natalie and Will Clarke bonded over drinks, dinner and whether they could get away with murder. Now married, they’ll put the latter to the test when an unchecked danger in their community places their son in jeopardy. Working as a criminal defense attorney, Nat refuses to rely on the broken legal system to keep her family safe. She knows that if you want justice…you have to get it yourself. Shocked to discover Nat’s taken matters into her own hands, Will has no choice but to dirty his, also. His family is in way too deep to back down now. He’s just not sure he recognizes the woman he married. Nat’s always been fiercely protective, but never this ruthless or calculating. With the police poking holes in their airtight plan, what will be the first to fall apart: their scandalous secret—or their marriage?

A special thank you to MIRA and #NetGalley for an early reading copy of #ForBetterandWorse.



“Hunt has concocted another thriller of small-town Florida life gone extra wrong. Each page races forward as the characters contend with different obstacles thrown in their ways, from pills to police to unfortunate phone calls … The end, when it comes, is unexpected and ominous, as is only proper. A twisty tale for fans of domestic thrillers.”


“[Readers] will scarcely mind the improbability of Nat’s murderous scheme as the roller-coaster action takes increasingly wild turns. Psychological suspense fans will be satisfied.”

Publisher’s Weekly

“It’s the best thriller I’ve read all year.”

Book of the Month

"A clever thriller that asks how far we'll go to protect our friends. Margot Hunt will keep you guessing until the final, satisfying twist."
