The Happy Couple by Samantha Hayes @Bookouture @samhayes Publication Day May 6, 2020



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…

Nail-biting and completely gripping, The Happy Couple will make you question how well you really know the ones you love. Perfect reading for anyone who adored by The Wife Between UsThe Girl on The Train or Gone Girl.

This psychological thriller has everything a thriller should have. Gripping from page one and twisty until the end! Samantha Hayes will have you guessing what happened to Will. My heart hurt for Jo. She didn’t deserve to have her happy life ripped out from underneath her. Completely unsuspecting, living in the perfect marriage with the perfect man…it just seemed so unfair.
You won’t get an hour into the story before you get slapped with the first twist! It seems that Jo’s eyes are playing tricks on her. Could it be… was she seeing things…on the mantle, right there plain as day in the pictures? Whoa… get ready for a heart pounding ride as you learn what really happened to Will!
What happens when Jo shows up the the rental property where she saw pictures of her husband??? Block out some time in a day because you won’t want to put this book down. You will read it in one sitting! It is fabulous. I have enjoyed Samantha Hayes’s books before and I am hooked! I look forward to reading more work from her. 5 stars!
