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 chosen 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…
For Maggie and Brad it was meant to be a relaxing vacation in Lake Tahoe to reconnect with each other. Meeting Skye and Joe, who they hit it off with instantly, seems to be a happy coincidence. After inviting them to share their house lakeside, they begin to realise that meeting Skye and Joe is neither a coincidence or something that will make them happy.
The Other Couple is told from the view points of each of the four characters, giving the reader an in depth view of each of their personalities, lives and motivations. While you may have read a similar story, this book is made unique by the way in which the author has you questioning these characters and if anybody is as guilty or as innocent as they seem.
The first part of the book is on the slower side, but in the second half, this is where the pace ramps up and it gets really good. The author starts to mess with the reader’s head, starts planting all these seeds and this gets you thinking, who is playing who and who out of the four, will take the trophy as being the master manipulator!
What I love most about Cathryn Grant’s books, is she really knows how to deliver a twist. She has a real gift of leading the reader in one direction, where you can become complacent, thinking you know where its heading, only to then have the rug pulled out from underneath you with a jaw dropping outcome, which is exactly what she achieves in this book.
The Other Couple is a thrilling tale and is another great example of Cathryn Grant showing us her talent in the psychological thriller genre. I look forward to reading what she comes up with next. It was a pleasure to read and review The Other Couple, which I recommend.
Thank you to Cathryn Grant, Inkubator Books and NetGalley for allowing me to read an advanced copy of The Other Couple, which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
This review will be added to, Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr, Amazon Australia & Amazon US. I will also add to NetGalley, Apple Books, Kobo, Google Play and Barnes & Noble if available. As I am from Australia, I am unable to add to Amazon UK, but will post to Waterstones & Foyles if also available.
