APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
The bond between two couples erodes when a husband goes missing. Best-selling author Mary Kubica crafts a suspenseful, slow-burn domestic thriller that revolves around expecting married couple Lily and Christian, whose lives seem perfect…until Lily encounters their friend Jake in the woods. Now, Jake is missing and his wife, Nina—who’s also Lily’s friend and co-worker—is deeply concerned and hell-bent on tracking him down, no matter what ugly truths she unearths along the way. Kubica’s taut storyline doesn’t have an ounce of fat on it, making it a truly gripping read. The story alternates between Christian’s and Nina’s perspectives, dialing up the twists and tension. We couldn’t put Just the Nicest Couple down.
This book had me hooked from the beginning and the ending is something I never expected
Master of Suspense
Definitely a page turner. Decent writing and story. Not my favorite book though. Didn’t really take anything away from it aside from entertainment.
