Karen begins to listen and soon begins to offer advice as to how they can draw closer together. However, things begin to unravel rather quickly, and Karen soon realizes that she might be out of her depth with Lydia and Josh.
Neither Josh nor Lydia make Karen feel comfortable. There are things about both of them that send an alarm, but as she is dedicated to her work, she seeks to look past the angst that rises within her as she treats them. Furthermore, Karen is plagued by her past and this occasionally affects her perspective. Beyond that, Karen begins to feel unsafe.
What a twisty book! I felt much like Karen in the beginning. All I wanted was for this couple to look past their anger and grief and to learn to rediscover what brought them together in the first place. But, like Karen, I quickly learned that nothing was as it seemed. As things evolved, The Divorce moved past being a domestic drama to an actual thriller. Yes, indeed, something changed, and it did so smoothly, if not rapidly.
This book by Victoria Jenkins captured my interest from the outset and never let go. I was drawn into the couple, especially with the shift in the story. There were a few surprising twists and turns and a satisfying conclusion. I look forward to reading more by this talented author.
Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC to review in exchange for my honest opinion.
“I thought I knew how to help them. I knew nothing.”
Karen is a marriage counsellor with personal experience, as she came from a controlling abusive relationship with her first husband, Damien. Karen woks from home, a comfortable setting where her clients can feel at ease.
When Lydia and Josh Green walk into Karen’s office one rainy February morning, Karen sees a couple under stress, almost at breaking point. Lydia and Josh have two children, a girl thirteen and a boy nine. But by working with struggling couples, finding out more about their problems, helps her to save their marriage.
Josh feels resentment for being brought here. Lydia, a woman of low self-esteem, starts to relay the history of their relationship, but it involves fidelity and she appears to be afraid of her husband. Josh belittles his wife, and speaks down to her. He is hostile in his approach. He says that Lydia’s memory “isn’t that reliable.”
But they were happy once…
As Karen spends more time with Lydia and Josh, there are elements of Josh’s character that remind her of her ex-husband, Damien. Karen’s sense of unease grows…
Lydia is frightened and afraid for her safety.
Josh seems to be hiding a dark secret.
I can’t say anymore for risk of spoilers…but I will say that nothing is as it seems. The ending threw me for a loop! I never say it coming!
A well-written and debut psychological thriller, that shows this author has a promising future to continue writing in this genre. Looking forward to reading more of her books.
Many thanks to the author, Bookouture and Netgalley for providing me with my digital copy.
