    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.

    The Divorce

    Not as good as others she's written. Found it a little monotonous

    Really enjoyed it

    I tend to read reviews after I’ve read a book myself if I already own it or have it to review. There’s some mixed reviews for sure. Although I have this authors other books on my kindle, and I’m ashamed to say I’ve not got around to reading them....yet. I understand they are more in the line of police procedures unlike this one. So maybe because I’m all “zumped” out of police procedures is why I enjoyed this one. It is based around a Counsellor whose own first marriage wasn’t .....just let me say.....successful. Her second marriage was. In circumstances we find her “working from home” We learn early on that something is playing on her mind but it wasn’t clear to me what that was. I guessed several times but was off target. Then this couple come to her for counselling and it’s growing clear to me that their relationship is , shall we say, not all it seems to be. Of course it isn’t! I hear you say! They wouldn’t be there if there was nothing wrong with their marriage...right? Several times my mind changed. I go by “if something is obvious, then that’s the way to go” but this time, nope. I was pulled in. I loved this story and the plot, the writing it was so easy to follow and identify with the characters. Not too many people in this so was easy to follow. The characters were very well rounded I thought. It’s not an edge if your seat thriller. You won’t bite your nails down to the skin. You won’t find your jaw dropping, but what you will find is a great story behind the words, a great setting for a plot and a steady read that keeps you guessing. And sometimes that’s all you need depending on the book. I liked it. My downfall was the ending. I went back and read it three times with a frown on my face. I’m still a bit confused about it. It has made me eager to read her other books in order though, so that’s a good thing....right? She loves thrillers (she said in the back of this book) she’s tried something other than police procedures and I sincerely hope she writes more of these.
