Publisher's Summary

The Golden Couple is the next electrifying audiobook from Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen, the number one New York Times best-selling 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 absorbs 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 eight-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.

A Macmillan Audio production from St. Martin's Press

"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)

Editor's Pick

Looks can be deceiving
There are few authors for whom I will listen to everything they write, and Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen are on my short list. I rediscovered my love of listening with their Audible Original The Getaway in 2020, and devoured their twisty domestic thriller, The Golden Couple, in three days. Marissa and Matthew seem like the perfect couple, until a secret infidelity forces them to seek help to repair their marriage. Narrator Marin Ireland expertly embodies Avery, a well-known therapist recently suspended for her unconventional methods, while Karissa Vacker’s layered portrayal of Marissa kept me guessing. This electrifying listen had me on the edge of my seat until the final twist was revealed. —Margaret H., Audible Editor

My new favorite!

Narration was great-no creepy fake child voices. Despite many different perspectives and characters, with this narration it's easy to tell them apart. Also this storyline was tight asf. The plot line was deeper than one would think just reading the first half or so. Love these Authors-they kick ass like usual. I'll definitely recommend this. 👌

Not Your Average Thriller

Avery is no cop, but it is her job to find the truth. In her controversial “consulting” practice, she must uncover the lies her clients tell each other and themselves, and strip them bare so they can heal. When a rich, dazzling couple seek her help to save their marriage, she finds that their lives become entangled with hers in inexplicable ways.

The authors’ use of a “therapist” (in quotations for good reason) as the truth seeker is a clever device. The story has twists and turns until the end, and the characterization is very good. I would love to see this turn into a series — Avery is a very compelling and unique character.

Narration was very good.

A Great Suprise!

I can’t believe that I’m saying this but, this is my first time ever reading a book by these two authors and I’m very surprised! I haven't read a mystery/suspense/thriller in the LONGEST time and it felt so good to read one again. This book genuinely surprised me and kept me guessing the entire time. I loved the writing, characters and story. I thought the first half of the book was a little slow but the deeper and deeper you get into the book the harder it is to stop reading. I highly recommend going into this book without reading any reviews about it. I think, especially with thrillers, it's best to go in without knowing anything. I also had the pleasure of listening to this book on audio and it was such great narration.

Preposterous and not in a good way

There was nothing in this book that brought suspense, mystery or even much of a climax. The premise of an over- involved psychologist- sleuth who was decredentialed because of her unconventional approach was a no-starter from the beginning. Save your credit.
