The perfect couple … or the perfect lie?
A year and a half ago, Gemma met the love of her life, Danny. Since then, their relationship has been like something out of a dream. But one Friday evening, Gemma returns home to find Danny is nowhere to be seen.
After two days with no word from her husband, Gemma turns to the police. She is horrified by what she discovers – a serial killer is on the loose in Bristol. When she sees the photos of the victims she is even more stunned … they all look just like Danny.
But the police aren’t convinced by Gemma’s story. Why has no one apart from Gemma seen or heard from Danny in weeks? Why is there barely a trace of him in their flat? Is she telling them the truth, or are there more secrets and lies in this marriage than meets the eye?
I absolutely loved Jackie’s last book Am I Guilty and I had been waiting impatiently to see what she would come up with next. I am pleased to say that The Perfect Couple was worth the wait and another example of just how talented an author Jackie is.
“The Perfect Couple… Or the perfect lie?” Jackie. has created a thrilling and twisted read that had me racing through the pages to see how it was all going to unfold. I had absolutely no idea where this was headed and I was so engrossed that I had trouble tearing myself away. When I did get to the outcome, it was completely unexpected and a jaw-dropping moment. Well played Jackie… Well played!
Jackie has done a great job with the characters in this story. I particularly enjoyed the characters of DCI Helena Dickens and DS Devon Clarke. Their working chemistry was great and I would love to see them again featured in another of Jackie’s books. Gemma was an intriguing character and she was brought to life through the pages extremely well. I liked how I was kept second-guessing her throughout the story.
With each book, Jackie just keeps outdoing herself. I love her writing, which is so engaging and she really knows her way around the psychological thriller genre, which makes her such an asset to it. I will now be awaiting with anticipation for her next book and I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.
The Perfect Couple is a highly addictive and compelling read. With a twisted and mysterious plot that keeps you on the edge of your seat, well-developed characters that are believable and writing that is so engaging, it is like you also are part of the story, I thoroughly recommend you read this book. It has been an absolute pleasure to be able to read and review The Perfect Couple.
This review will be added to NetGalley, Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr, Amazon Australia, Amazon US, Apple Books, Kobo, Google Play, Barnes and Noble & Waterstones. As I am from Australia, unfortunately, I am unable to add to Amazon UK.
