Book Review: The Happy Couple by Samantha Hayes

Review of The Happy Couple

Rating: ⭐ ⭐  


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…


1. Say something, I’m giving up on you

This was one hell of a slow-burner that did NOT pick up till I almost gave up on it!

2. Provoke me

The things I enjoyed most about this story were the thought-provoking themes peppered all over its pages.

3. Wait, What?

However, I was pretty underwhelmed by the big reveal but that’s probably because I had hoped for something more intricate and you know what they say about hope. It breeds eternal misery!

4. Let’s not Talk about it

Now, let’s talk about the last chapter…or maybe not as I’m honestly not sure how I feel about it so let’s skip ahead.

5. The Final Verdict

This was not my cup of tea but I’m sure other people will enjoy it.

I would like to thank the Publishers, NetGalley, and the Author for sending me a copy of this book.
