About the Book:
They planned a dream vacation. They got a trip to hell. Maggie and Brad are on vacation at Lake Tahoe when they meet another couple, Skye and Joe. The four hit it off so well that Maggie invites their new friends to share her beautiful lakeside rental. What she doesn’t realize is Skye and Joe aren’t just some random couple. They have been watching Maggie and Brad, have chosen them carefully….And now, when they discover that Maggie has a secret which could destroy her marriage, they start turning the screws, pushing their own sinister agenda. But have they selected their victim wisely? Or does Maggie also have a dark side? As the pressure builds, what should have been a dream vacation begins to look more like the inner circle of hell. Before it’s over, all four will be changed forever – and at least one of them will be dead.
“All happy families are like one another;
each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.”
- Leo Tolstoy
This is a slow burn of a psychological thriller but it is also intriguing and gripping. The Other Couple was very well written and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Like many books, it was a bit of a slow start but it picked up quickly after that and I was able to read it easily in a couple of sittings. I really liked the way the characters were fleshed out and not all is what it seems on the surface.
The whole book felt very tense, and somewhat mental overload when all the plot lines finish together. In the back of my mind I was guessing what might happen and even though I was right in some ways I was unexpectedly surprised in others. In my eyes this is what makes a great read and a great author and also the fact that after a few chapters in I was reading at a pace that had me up way past my bedtime. Needless to say I really enjoyed reading this book and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys suspenseful stories.
