  • A book with a surprising twist.

    Karen has done well as a marriage counselor, working from her home for decades. She generally works with couples together, and will do what she can to keep their marriages intact. It doesn't take long for Karen to understand the newest couple, Josh and Lydia Green. At least she thinks she understands the dynamic of their relationship. Karen begins to listen and soon begins to offer advice as to how they can draw closer together. However, things begin to unravel rather quickly, and Karen soon realizes that she might be out of her depth with Lydia and Josh. Neither Josh nor Lydia make Karen feel comfortable. There are things about both of them that send an alarm, but as she is dedicated to her work, she seeks to look past the angst that rises within her as she treats them. Furthermore, Karen is plagued by her past and this occasionally affects her perspective. Beyond that, Karen begins to feel unsafe. What a twisty book! I felt much like Karen in the beginning. All I wanted was for this couple to look past their anger and grief and to learn to rediscover what brought them together in the first place. But, like Karen, I quickly learned that nothing was as it seemed. As things evolved, The Divorce moved past being a domestic drama to an actual thriller. Yes, indeed, something changed, and it did so smoothly, if not rapidly. This book by Victoria Jenkins captured my interest from the outset and never let go. I was drawn into the couple, especially with the shift in the story. There were a few surprising twists and turns and a satisfying conclusion. I look forward to reading more by this talented author. Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC to review in exchange for my honest opinion.

  • Routine Marriage Counseling With A Huge Twist!!

    A counselor working with a young couple has flashbacks of her first marriage, a marriage where her husband verbally, mentally and physically abused her. As she works with them, other clues arise that an aura of suspense and danger surround them. With a couple of unplanned encounters with them individually, suddenly she realizes that things might not be what they appear to be and behind closed doors things happen that no one else sees or understands. This story is told from the perspective of the counselor, the man and the woman. Each perspective leads to differing opinions of who is most to blame for the couple's problems. The first part of the book was somewhat slow but the further I read, there were twists that lead to the startling conclusion. Thank-you to Netgalley, Victoria Jenkins and Bookouture for an ARC in exchange for a honest review. Review will be shared on Goodreads, Amazon and Kobo

  • Not so much

    Sorry to say, I struggled with this book but at least I finished it but only to find out that the ending was almost worse than the middle. I think a major problem was that the characters were just not likable and it’s very hard to read when you don’t care about any of the characters. Thanks to NetGalley for advance copy.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A great read.

    This is a really interesting read into the human psyche. It is an intriguing story which looks like it is going to be about a normal couple going through a troublesome time, but there is so much more to the story. There are only three characters in this book, which I thought I was going to struggle a bit with as I like there to be more to keep my interest, but Victoria does a great job with them, and they are very well developed, written well and very believable. With so little characters it makes for an intense read which is mostly told within the therapy sessions, which is what makes this standout. I went through all of the normal emotions with each of the characters, from a dislike of Josh who comes across as an arrogant jerk and someone I defiantly would not want to be married too, to sympathy towards Lydia who clearly is suffering at the hands of her domineering husband and is just crying out for help, to a feeling of dread from Karen the marriage counsellor, who feels an unease around the couple, and has some demons of her own that she needs to face. Victoria gives the reader a thorough insight into each of the characters through individual chapters, and what starts as a slow burn, builds up momentum throughout to a thrilling conclusion that I did not see coming! You have the sense when reading it that there is going to be a big explosion and it does not disappoint. This is the first book that I have read from Victoria. She is a great storyteller and I look forward to reading more of her work in the future. All up this is an enjoyable read full of suspense that I highly recommend. Thank-you to NetGalley, Bookouture and Victoria Jenkins for allowing me to read an advanced copy of The Divorce in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own and are not biased in anyway.
