About the book

How far would you go to protect your child?

I knew something was wrong. It’s a mother’s instinct.

I could tell when my son started hiding things from me. He used to walk to school with a mischievous grin on his beautiful face. Now he avoids eye contact and keeps his head down.

Since I discovered he’s being bullied by a classmate, I’ve spent every day worrying, my stomach churning with anxiety from the moment he leaves the house to the second he walks back through the door.

Everyone keeps telling me I’m overreacting, but I won’t risk my child’s safety. My husband and I try to talk to the other boy’s parents, but it only makes things worse…

Then our precious child is hurt. Enough is enough. It has to stop. Even if that means taking matters into our own hands.

Because we know the truth about the family targeting our son – it’s not the first time they’ve done this.

So the question is, exactly how far will we go to get revenge?

A nail-biting, page-turning psychological thriller from the number one bestselling author of The Doctor’s Wife. If you love Behind Closed Doors, Gone Girl and The Housemaid, you’ll be hooked on The Couple’s Revenge.

My Review

This is family drama turned thrilling mystery.  Told from dual narrators, Sara and Guy as they get embroiled in an escalating fight about protecting their family.  It ultimately made me think about what measures would I go to protect mine.  I had recently read another social issues type book about how one incident, while simple in the other book but much more daunting in this one, could start an escalating spiral.

While I normally think of this author’s books at entertaining popcorn thrillers, this one had a little more of a social message buried in it.  It could work for both book clubs and buddy reads as the group discusses what is acceptable and where do you draw the line.  But don’t worry if you too love those popcorn thrillers because this one delivers some shock along with getting you to think.

I can’t decide if I liked the characters in the book, but I did empathize with them and their situation.  And I felt all the spectrum of emotions.  I felt sad for the family, was mad at the authorities that at times seemed inactive when you consider the kids involved, and shocked at that last twist.

If you want a thought provoking domestic thriller, look no further than this one.
