The Golden Couple by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen, 4.5 Stars

The Golden Couple is the next electrifying novel from Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen, the #1 New York Times bestselling author duo behind You Are Not Alone, An Anonymous Girl, and The Wife Between Us.

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

Marissa and Mathew Bishop seem like the golden couple–until Marissa cheats. She wants to repair things, both because she loves her husband and for the sake of their 8-year-old son. After a friend forwards an article about Avery, Marissa takes a chance on this maverick therapist, who lost her license due to controversial methods.

When the Bishops glide through Avery’s door and Marissa reveals her infidelity, all three are set on a collision course. Because the biggest secrets in the room are still hidden, and it’s no longer simply a marriage that’s in danger.

Praise for The Golden Couple:

The Golden Couple is my favorite kind of thriller: a guessing game filled with characters you care about and twists you don’t see coming. The Golden Couple takes a deep dive into a marriage, where what you see on the surface is not necessarily the truth, and the results are mesmerizing. Add to this a therapist who doesn’t play by the rules and you have an utterly compelling, spellbinding read.” –– Lisa Jewell, author of Then She Was Gone and Invisible Girl

The Golden Couple is a propulsive, twisty, unputdownable thriller – with two heroines you won’t be able to get enough of… and a twist you’ll never see coming. Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen have outdone themselves!” ––Laura Dave, author of The Last Thing He Told Me

The Golden Couple is propulsive and thrilling. It grabbed me from the first page and didn’t let go. A page-turner that will keep you guessing until the very end.” –– Taylor Jenkins Reid, author of Malibu Rising and Daisy Jones & the Six

The Golden Couple is a riveting cat-and-mouse game of a novel that explores the intricacies of marriage, and the many ways in which people lie to themselves…and others. This is a psychological thriller in every sense of the word.” –– Lori Gottlieb, author of Maybe You Should Talk to Someone

My Review:

Books written by the dynamic duo of Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen are at the top of my list these days. They just can’t seem to write a bad one. Their books are filled with mystery and intrigue and they are all compulsive page turners. The Golden Couple is no different.

Marissa and Matthew Bishop are that perfect couple that you would be so jealous of if you didn’t want to be their friend. They are both adorable. He’s successful, she has her own boutique and is always impeccably styled. They have an adorable son. They really have it all. And then she cheats. And she knows that to move past it, she needs to make it right. Enter Avery, the therapist that is going to use her own patented program to fix it all.

As per the usual, things are not as they seem. And Marissa and Matthew actually have more issues that they appear to have on the surface. The Golden Couple is a great twisty page-turner with all kinds of twists and turns. Greer and Hendricks do not disappoint. You’ll want this one to be on the very top of your TBR stack.
