Book Review: The Marriage Counselor

Book: The Marriage Counselor

Author: Dea Poirier

Thank you NetGalley and Bookouture Audio for an advanced audio copy.

The Marriage Counselor was a rollercoaster ride for me but not for the right reasons. I started out really liking the story. Adele is a marriage counselor and her husband Patrick goes missing. After her husband is missing people connected to both Adele and Patrick are turning up dead.

I was on the edge of my seat for a good portion of the book. Then the roller coaster started. The ride I went on was me hoping this would not take the obvious and boring twist. Unfortunately, it did and I saw it coming from a mile away.

This may be more of a problem for me. I go through a lot of books. I keep very close to a book-a-day pace (thank you audiobooks). This is not just a strange flex, which it kinda is, it’s just to explain how this could be a me problem. With the number of books I go through, there are some twists that seem like the easy way out to me that I come across so many times. If I didn’t go through so many books it’s not something I would immediately expect and would probably be more forgiving of.

I still enjoyed this book even though the race to the end was not the race I wanted. The story showed a lot of promise and I was left wanting so much more. I still would recommend this book.

Final score 3/5
