‘Absolutely fantastic. Had me gripped!!! Loved it!’ ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐, Goodreads reviewer

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… 

The Divorce is an absolutely unputdownable psychological thriller which will have you hooked until the final incredible twist. Perfect for everyone who loved Gone Girl, The Woman in the Window and The Wife Between Us.

Really enjoyed it

I tend to read reviews after I’ve read a book myself if I already own it or have it to review.

There’s some mixed reviews for sure.

Although I have this authors other books on my kindle, and I’m ashamed to say I’ve not got around to reading them....yet. I understand they are more in the line of police procedures unlike this one.
So maybe because I’m all “zumped” out of police procedures is why I enjoyed this one.

It is based around a Counsellor whose own first marriage wasn’t .....just let me say.....successful.
Her second marriage was.
In circumstances we find her “working from home”

We learn early on that something is playing on her mind but it wasn’t clear to me what that was. I guessed several times but was off target.

Then this couple come to her for counselling and it’s growing clear to me that their relationship is , shall we say, not all it seems to be.
Of course it isn’t! I hear you say! They wouldn’t be there if there was nothing wrong with their marriage...right?

Several times my mind changed. I go by “if something is obvious, then that’s the way to go” but this time, nope. I was pulled in.

I loved this story and the plot, the writing it was so easy to follow and identify with the characters.
Not too many people in this so was easy to follow.
The characters were very well rounded I thought.

It’s not an edge if your seat thriller.
You won’t bite your nails down to the skin.
You won’t find your jaw dropping, but what you will find is a great story behind the words, a great setting for a plot and a steady read that keeps you guessing. And sometimes that’s all you need depending on the book.

I liked it.

My downfall was the ending.
I went back and read it three times with a frown on my face.
I’m still a bit confused about it.

It has made me eager to read her other books in order though, so that’s a good thing....right?

She loves thrillers (she said in the back of this book) she’s tried something other than police procedures and I sincerely hope she writes more of these.

Ms Tilbury ,

Not for me.

Agonisingly slow and dull.

The Divorce

I love psychological thrillers and have read some excellent novels. Maybe it’s because of this I found this book to be a little boring and predictable.
