Publisher's Summary

Me and Will. Will and Me. A perfect match. He said he would always be there for me, but it’s been a year since he drained his coffee, walked out the front door and vanished. 

Did he leave me? Or did something terrible happen? I’m scared someone finally found out about what happened on the drive home that night...

I lie awake at night trawling the internet for rental properties, desperate for an escape. Until I see my husband’s gorgeous face smiling back at me from a photograph on the fireplace in someone else’s home, and something inside of me snaps. 

At the house, I find no trace of him and the woman who lives there has no idea who I am. But I’m certain she’s hiding something behind the locked door upstairs. I know that if I want answers, I have to stay. 

You might think that what’s inside that room is the answer to all my questions and the end of all my pain. But it’s only the beginning… 

Nail-biting and completely gripping, The Happy Couple will make you question how well you really know the ones you love. Perfect listening for anyone who adored The Wife Between Us, The Girl on the Train or Gone Girl.

interesting

This was an interesting story in ways. It seemed like it was going the typical cheating husband and all that then it surprised me. I will say she kind of made a lot of presumptions with only a little bit of information. It made me roll my eyes more than a few times. Overall a pretty good read and a step above the typical British psychological thrillers I seem to be addicted to.

Spoiler Alert!

The ending was so far fetched and I likely would have rated this book higher, had JoJo made a rational, realistic choice. It was unsettling she did not even give a thought to Simon. Ugh, anyway, the plot was twisty indeed but when Suzanne locked JoJo and then Louise in the room, the reason was not given and was far-fetched because she was not "unhinged" as the author kept insinuating and then flipped a switch at the end and she and JoJo became besties. Louise's reaction, or lack thereof to the revelation and subsequent conflict was totally unrealistic, avoiding and refusing to even aknowledge her "best friend" and the utter betrayal she committed. "Friends since schoolmates," and not a single word neither in her defense or conformation and to say nothing made me want to chuck my phone out the window. So over it and not worth the money spent.

Good . . But...

So. This began very good. And it did keep me wanting to listen to get the whole story. But I agree with some of the other reviewers. The characters were rather annoying. It was hard to get on board and cheer for any of them. Not just because you weren't sure who was crazy, but because they all were! And while there were a few tidbits that made me guess what had been going on, I did want to listen in hopes there was a crazy twist. Not really. It bounced back and forth ( which is fine in thrillers because you get fed small bits of information at a time) but even at the end it bounced back and forth to get the whole story. ugh. I enjoyed the narrator!!

Boring

Serious struggle to finish! Even the climax couldn't keep my attention. Pass on this one.

Not everything is as it seems in this book! It was very good from beginning to end. Karma is real in this story!

a hot mess of a story - painful to read

a hot mess of a story, painful to get through. not my cup of tea . Convoluted but not in a good way or worth it, just....painful.
