The Happy Couple by Samantha Hayes
About The Book
Me and Will. Will and Me. A perfect match. He said he would always be there for me, but it’s been a year since he drained his coffee, walked out the front door and vanished.
Did he leave me? Or did something terrible happen? I’m scared someone finally found out about what happened on the drive home that night…
I lie awake at night trawling the internet for rental properties, desperate for an escape. Until I see my husband’s gorgeous face smiling back at me from a photograph on the fireplace in someone else’s home, and something inside of me snaps.
At the house, I find no trace of him and the woman who lives there has no idea who I am. But I’m certain she’s hiding something behind the locked door upstairs. I know that if I want answers, I have to stay.
You might think that what’s inside that room is the answer to all my questions and the end of all my pain. But it’s only the beginning…
How long will you be waiting for the love of your life?
Jo loved her husband Will, but one night he disappeared… now, a year later, her friend pushes her for a house sitting as holidays, her life will change after seeing her husband in a photo of one of the houses. She will need to know more about the woman on the photographs and why her husband was in them. Ready?
This had been an original read, as we read Jo’s thoughts in the present, we will have some flashbacks about her past with Will. But the mystery will remain there till the ending, what made Will to leave her? Were they ever really a happy couple? Who is the woman in the photos? So many question that could only be answered if you read the book of course!
The story is focused in the relation between Jo and Will; their love, trust and happiness together, making you question your own relation with your partner. How deeper is the love between you too? Could something that you always thought that would be strong forever be broken so easily?
I love the psychological thrillers that make you re-think about your life and your beliefs, because even if this is a fiction book, as I always say, reality is much more dangerous than fiction.
This is a book that you have to let it abduct you, this is not the marriage you expect, there are some mysteries that must be revealed… ready to discover “The Happy Couple”?
