The Golden Couple, Greer Hendricks, Sarah Pekkanen: A Review
I've been seeing this title make the rounds on bookstagram, especially after it was included in the BoTM, and the reviews have been promising. I was excited to dive into this one.
Avery is an unconventional marriage counselor/advisor dealing with her own personal demons when Marissa approaches her about taking her on as a client. She's cheated on her husband, Matthew, and she wants to make the marriage work, and Avery agrees that if they agree to her conditions, she can save their relationship in ten sessions. What none of them anticipates is a crash course in destiny, forcing them to admit their darkest secrets and putting them all in danger.
I enjoyed this book.
Hendricks and Pekkanen have a delightful writing style. Each chapter has a clear point of view and the structure flows well. I enjoyed the multiple voices, even if they bled together in some parts, and thought they helped solidify the conflicts. This also kept the plot moving, so if you're looking for a quick, crisp, thrilling read, this will be the book for you.
I think many readers will have a definite favorite character, and there's plenty of intrigue and doubt to keep the suspense taut. The Golden Couple is anything but, so settle in for a twisty rollercoaster of deception.
Big thanks to St. Martin's and NetGalley for providing an eARC in exchange for honest review consideration.
