Publisher's Summary

The Golden Couple is an addictive thriller from Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen, the authors of the best-selling The Wife Between Us and An Anonymous Girl, that will keep you guessing to the very end.

Marissa and Mathew Bishop seem like the golden couple...until Marissa cheats. In a desperate attempt to repair her family, Marissa takes a chance on maverick therapist Avery Chambers, who lost her licence due to controversial methods.

If Avery Chambers can’t fix you in 10 sessions, she won’t take you on as a client. She helps people overcome everything, from domineering parents to assault. Her successes almost help her absorb the emptiness she feels since her husband’s death.

When the Bishops glide through Avery’s door and Marissa reveals her infidelity, all three are set on a collision course they never expected. Because the biggest secrets in the room are still hidden, and it’s no longer simply a marriage that’s in danger. Not all of them are who they seem, and matters are about to turn deadly....

Oh golly this is such rubbish

Badly written, a soft obvious story. This is true Rubbish and terrible. Wish I’d never read it.

Engaging story with enough twists to keep me happy

This story is up to the quality I expect from these two authors .
Having enjoyed their other books as well.
I feel that Avery deserves another book she was such an interesting character that we could learn so much more about if the authors decided to extend her story .
Great read , I liked the narrator as well.

Snoozefest

Unfortunately, I was quite disappointed by this book. I absolutely adored the authors' previous books and I looked very much forward to this new story. I found the book boring, nothing really happens, the twists were quite straightforward. By chapter 21 I was over it and forced myself to finish it. I really could not care less about what happened. Narration ok but had to set the speed to 0.95x. I would highly recommend the authors' other books but not this one.

Didn’t see that coming!

Usually I’m pretty good at spotting a twist, but this one got me! Brilliant characters and a unique plot, definitely recommend.

More about Avery please!

As other reviewers have written, this book is really made by Avery. Unflinching, resilient, but without the irritating cliched tropes of the “strong woman” (every man in her life hasn’t been utterly vile to her, for example). She’s smart, but not infallible, unsentimental and a bit bossy. I like her!

A little tedious

This book had a decent enough plot but was dreary with the endless references to pointless characters and way too much dull irrelevant detail. It was very distracting and easy to lose the thread of what was supposed to be going on.

Terrible

I really disliked this book. Apart from the character of Avery who was the only reason I didn’t return it, all other characters extremely unlikable and the voice of Marissa was so sickly sweet that it was almost unbearable. I had to keep having breaks from listening and listen to a podcast and then come back to it. It really was just horrible. The story was average I suppose, but predictable and just didn’t grip me. I will be staying well clear of the authors in future.

Another great book

Wow the twists and turns in this book are amazing. I thought I had it worked out, but as always Greer and Sarah always keep something up their sleeves. If you love a good thriller try all of their books, you won't be disappointed.

An enjoyable easy listen

A well thought through story with good narration. I looked forward every day to settling in, in the evening, to find out if the story developed how I thought it might.

Narration very good
Story unusual and keeps you guessing!
