Publisher Description

The Golden Couple is the next electrifying audiobook from Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen, the #1 New York Times bestselling 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

"Narrators Marin Ireland and Karissa Vacker dazzle as they deliver this twisted domestic thriller."—AudioFile

Mediocre

Interesting twists and turns but sappy and drawn out. “Marissa” is a weak, pathetic female character and the book is far fetched at best.

If you want an easy listen that has no depth in the characters, go for it

Yawn

The book starts slow to get you acquainted with the therapist protagonist who, predictably, ‘plays by her own rules’ while brining in the other bumbling protagonist Marissa who is an adulterous house wife. The book peaks in the middle when Avery finally starts doing some great detective work while Avery tries to uncover the truth herself. Then the end of the book has you left bored and unsatisfied.

Additionally: the audiobook version has an all female voice cast while there are multiple key male characters that they try to impersonate. Not sure if they are trying to “take down the patriarchy” or if it was a budget issue but it was hard to connect to the male characters and ultimately led to me being disconnected from them.
