Hello my lovely followers! I’m back again with a book review, this time it’s The Perfect Couple by Jackie Kabler.
I received an advanced copy from NetGalley in return for an honest review on my blog and NetGalley.
Overall rating – 4.5 out 5 stars.
WOW, this book was an absolute rollercoaster from beginning to end, I usually try and play detective and try and figure the story and book out, and reading this was no different, except I came to every conclusion except the right one.
The first few chapters were quite fast paced which (without giving too much away) was necessary to the story. Gemma had gotten home from work to find her husband missing, and the first few chapters followed her panic, trying to contact him and find out what was going on.
The book naturally slowed down as the story progressed, but it never once felt boring or like a slog to read. Every chapter brought something new.
This book was such a wild ride, once it peaked and we discovered what happened everything did add up but I would never have worked it out on my own. To strike the balance of having a shocking twist but also planting the seeds along the way is difficult but this book achieved it!
Character wise, I struggled to buy into all of them. Gemma was really well rounded and brought to life, but others i.e. Danny seemed flat and 2D, they lacked life.
On the whole, I thought The Perfect Couple was a really exciting and refreshing read and I would definitely recommend it.
Till next time, Em xx
