Finally!! I was worried after rating some of their books low that I wouldn’t enjoy this author duo anymore but this book turned that right around for me.
Marissa and Matthew Bishop are wealthy suburbanites that seem to have it all, as rich people tend to do. Until Marissa is unfaithful to Matthew. They want to work out their marriage for their son that’s where Avery comes in, their new marriage counselor. Avery has lost her professional license but that doesn’t deter her from continuing to practice, as long as her patients adhere to her unusual methods. Marissa and Matthew are desperate to salvage their marriage but they will soon learn that it’s not just their marriage that’s in danger.
I like how this book was told from alternating points of view between Avery and Marissa throughout the story. It made me question which of the narrators were actually reliable and who was holding back and hiding something. I think that’s where most of the surprises for me came from, I was honestly left in shock after some of the plot twists in this book. Parts of this book kept me on the edge of my seat and I couldn’t put this book down.
I hope I can continue on this trend of liking their books again, they really know how to write a twisty, edge of your seat thriller.
Thanks to St. Martins Press for the copy for my review.
