Today I am taking part in the blog tour and reviewing The Secret Couple by J.S. Lark published by One More Chapter.
A lingering look.
A dead body.
A crime years in the making.
Alison knows she’s in too deep. But behind closed doors, no one is who they seem…
“Someone knows what they did…”
In this story we follow Alice, a solicitor, who defends clients that are victims of domestic violence. When she finds out her husband Joesph has been having an affair, she has to get away. She heads off to Bath after receiving an email asking for her help, which couldn’t have come at a better time, and it is here where she meets Luke…
A slow burning dark read, The Secret Couple will keep you guessing until the end. You don’t know who to trust as you are taken on ride where secrets, lies, temptation and deceit are explored.
The characters of Alice and Luke are complex and flawed, their past and present stories had me compelled to keep reading as is told from both of their perspectives in a first-person narrative.
The tension and suspense just drips off the pages and the unexpected twists and turns made for a riveting read. This is the second book I have read from Lark that had me again connected with the style of storytelling and I look forward to reading more from her.
Thank you to J.S. Lark, One More Chapter and NetGalley for allowing me to read an advance copy of The Secret Couple, which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
This review will be added to, Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Amazon Australia & Amazon US. I will also add to NetGalley, Apple Books, Kobo, Google Play Barnes & Noble, Waterstones, Foyles and BookBub if available. As I am from Australia, I am unable to add to Amazon UK.
