Sarah Pekkanen and Grier Hendricks are on fire with The Golden Couple! I’ve loved all their books, and this is another page-turner to add to your suspense/thriller collection.
Marissa and Mathew seem like the Golden Couple, but Marissa is hiding a secret - she cheated on her husband. She decides to take him to therapy to tell him and get everything out in the open, to heal their marriage. However, she doesn’t choose just any therapist, but Avery. Avery is no longer licensed, due to her unorthodox procedures, but Marissa is hoping she can work miracles and save her marriage.
Marissa breaks off communication with the man she cheated with, but he won’t take no for an answer. Notes, flowers, and Mathew is even assaulted. How far will her lover go to try to claim Marissa for himself? These overtures continue to drive a wedge between Melissa and Mathew, and Marissa is concerned that even the miracle worker Avery won’t be able to repair the fissure in their marriage.
Narration alternates between Marissa and Avery. This adds to the story, as we are able to see the same event from various perspectives. I've always heard that there's your version, my version, and the truth is somewhere in the middle, and that is definitely the case with the Golden Couple.
Will Avery be able to repair their marriage? Will Marissa choose Mathew or her mysterious lover? Will Marissa's family stay safe? Whew! One I couldn't put down!! Thanks to St. Martin's Press for the early copy!!
This gem is coming out March 3, 2022. Pre-order it now!!
