In her latest thought-provoking work, New York Times bestselling author Kimberla Lawson Roby explores an American epidemic: prescription drug abuse — the nation’s fastest-growing drug problem — along with illegal drug addiction and deception. Roby’s fourth novella and 18th title, "The Perfect Marriage" releases today in bookstores. It follows the lives of Denise and Derrek Shaw, whose marriage is unraveling from the effects of addiction and deception. Happily married for 15 years, the Shaws have a wonderful daughter, successful careers and a lovely home. They also are hiding a shocking secret: a dangerous addiction to drugs. The pair attends Narcotics Anonymous meetings, but with Denise’s job becoming more stressful, she finds that drugs allow her to get through her long days. Also, having remained lean for weeks, Derrek relapses when family tragedy strikes. Once soul mates, this husband and wife are quickly losing the love they once felt for each other. With her parents spiraling out of control, their daughter, Mackenzie, makes an unexpected move to take matters into her own hands, with the hopes of saving her family.
