Wow, it’s been a while since I’ve been so invested in a book! After reading House of Earth and Blood, which was quite a snooze, this is exactly what I needed 🙏🏼
The Golden Couple is told in two different points of view. The first is told from Avery’s perspective, and the second from Marissa’s. Avery is a psychologist who lost her license due to a situation that was reported. She keeps working, but under the title of consultant, rather than psychologist. Marissa is a boutique owner who hires Avery as a counselor for her and her husband. She is hiding a secret and needs Avery’s intervention to help take care of the situation.
At first, I did not see how the plot of this book would evolve. However, as a certain mystery arose, I became very intrigued to find out this one secret. I had many theories and wrote them down as I kept reading, but to no avail. I was wrong the whole time, and the revelation hit me straight in the face.
Oh, how I missed Hendricks’ and Pekkanen’s writing! I love these two authors, they are wonderful and always write compelling stories that keep you hooked. And when you least expect it, BOOM, here’s a plot twist you never saw coming! 👹
Although I find the authors’ first two books — The Wife Between Us and An Anonymous Girl — superior to this and You Are Not Alone, this is an amazing read that I thoroughly enjoyed. I definitely needed something like this to get me out of my reading slump and make me yearn to pick up a book.
