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 absorb 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 8-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 wild therapist
Secrets & lies
The Golden Couple had me hooked from the first five minutes of listening. A couple with a marriage on the sudden rocks, side characters with dubious and tenuous connections and a therapist with a revoked license was quite frankly, everything I wanted. These characters were incredibly interesting even though each one felt some degree of shady.
I always felt some kind of trustful connection to Marissa despite her duplicity and bad decisions. I trusted Matthew and I didn’t trust Skip. I loved Avery, her weird way of working, her intrusions. Whilst I wouldn’t want to be on the end of this in real life, it made for a fantastic storyline.
How everything unravelled in the end was excellent, I was so off the mark, which is the best reading experience for this kind of suspenseful read. I enjoyed the fact that I wasn’t full of tension listening until the end scenes. It was more written in the style of Big Little Lies.
The audio had dual narration and dual pov, from the perspectives of Marissa and Avery which simply told this story to its strengths. The narration was excellent.
Thank you to LibroFM and Macmillan Audio for the early review copy.
