Publisher's Summary

They seemed like any other couple

Josh and Lydia Green. A doctor and a stay-at-home mother. They met at a party, which led to a dinner, which led to a happy and comfortable life together. They married young and had children earlier than planned.

Their marriage seemed like any other marriage

They have their moments, of course - who doesn’t? With Josh working longer hours in the hospital and Lydia feeling increasingly isolated at home, the strain is starting to show. They don’t talk as much as they used to.

But they have a secret like no other

Not every wife is as scared as Lydia.
Not every husband is hiding as much as Josh.
Not everything you think about them is true.

And this book contains a twist like no other....

Perfect for everyone who loved Gone Girl, The Woman in the Window, and The Wife Between Us.

Wow, that sucked!

NO SPOILERS! The book had an interesting premise being set in an ongoing therapy session involving one couple. Sadly though the book did not deliver. I was hoping it would be like the tv series “ In Treatment” but it just didn’t fizzle.

The book was boring and the book felt very unsatisfying when complete. I don’t recommend this to anyone.

Underwhelming

This book was tedious. It was not the “gripping psychological thriller” it was touted to be. The narrator is fine, but does nothing to bring these underdeveloped characters to life. The step-daughter is brought in via phone calls multiple times for apparently no reason because it doesn’t move the story along. I had taken a long break from Audible because they kept recommending books like this (boring). Maybe it’s time to finally cancel.

Don’t bother

This was such a disappointment. It was pedestrian, poorly written and read in my opinion.

Disappointing...

I was very disappointed in this novel. Narrator was good but the plot was not.

I enjoyed it!

I enjoyed this book. It wouldn’t the cup of tea of some people who usually like this genre though. It is strongly dialogue (between characters) based. Much of it takes place within the therapist’s consulting room. It has an interesting twist and is well written, with well drawn characters.

More! More! More?

I was intrigued from the very beginning. I had no preconceptions on what was about to take place within the story. This kept me captivated.

I did want more because I never want to be left wondering well what now.

abrupt ending

disappointed with the "twist". abrupt ending which took be by surprise as it still seemed to be in the middle of the story.

Complex relations

An intriguing and interesting premise. Like the next 2 books they just get better and better always with a great twist.

A simple story but with twists and turns. A dynamic and analytical look at family relations and whether the apple does fall far from the tree. Blunt ending.

Will read another. The accusation though does trump this one.

predictive, over dramatic and very boring

I persevered with this book as I thought it might get better. it didn't. The narrator sounds like someone off blue Peter! The story was laughable and I guessed the story by chapter 3. The characters were pathetic and only an idiot would not have guessed what Laura/lesley/ Lucy was up to. I really was rolling my eyes. Sorry but this is definitely a return.

Give this one a miss!

I was expecting something exciting to happen so kept listening but it was a bit boring and unbelievable. I have enjoyed other books by the author but not this one.

The Divorce

A tedious story that was a struggle to finish. Well narrated story but even that couldn't keep me interested in the characters or the plot
