Wealthy Washington suburbanites Marissa and Matthew Bishop seem to have it all—until Marissa is unfaithful. Beneath their veneer of perfection is a relationship riven by work and a lack of intimacy. She wants to repair things for the sake of their eight-year-old son and because she loves her husband. Enter Avery Chambers.

Avery is a therapist who lost her professional license. Still, it doesn’t stop her from counseling those in crisis, though they have to adhere to her unorthodox methods. And the Bishops are desperate.
When they glide through Avery’s door and Marissa reveals her infidelity, all three are set on a collision course. Because the biggest secrets in the room are still hidden, and it’s no longer simply a marriage that’s in danger. (Amazon)

Honestly, when I started reading this book, I thought I wasn’t going to like it. The book started off slow for me, but as I kept reading, I became more and more intrigued with what was going on in the book.

Marisa and Matthew seem to appear as the perfect couple, but they are far from that. So, they decide to go through counseling with Avery, however, Avery doesn’t have a licensed. This was a little confusing to me, but once everything comes together, it begins to make sense. I do feel the ending may have been slightly rushed which is why it’s not a 5 star read fore me, but it was still a good read.

There are a lot of twists in this thriller novel, which is the perfect combo for this genre. I could definitely appreciate it. The plot is told from multiple perspectives. This in my opinion was done right and made the book easy to follow. This is my first book by this duo and now I want to check out some of their other works.

My Rating:

4 star
