Description

The Perfect Couple… A match made in HEAVEN or HELL?

‘Chillingly believable and utterly compelling’ Lucy Foley, No.1 bestselling author of The Hunting Party
‘The perfect summer read. A classy thriller. Stylish, twisty and full of suspense’ Sarah Pinborough, No.1 bestselling author of Behind Her Eyes

When Emily applies for a job as a housekeeper for widower Rupert, it’s a chance to start over – a steady job and regular money means she can work towards her own place, not sharing a grimy flat with old mate, Mags.

As Emily gets to know more about Rupert’s world – how he likes his supper when he comes in from work, who his friends are – she can make sure everything runs like clockwork for him.

Soon there’s a spark between them; Rupert likes Emily and invites her to stay. For good.

To the outside world, they really seem to be a perfect match. There’s just the small issue of what really happened to Rupert’s first wife…

A gripping, razor-sharp game of cat and mouse, from the bestselling author, Lisa Hall.

Praise for The Perfect Couple:

‘Chillingly believable and utterly compelling with thrills aplenty — I loved this book’ Lucy Foley, No.1 bestselling author of The Hunting Party

‘The perfect summer read. A classy thriller that’s stylish, twisty and full of suspense, Hall’s novel is garnished with echoes of the classics such as Rebecca and Gaslight, but is very much a delicious cocktail all of its own’ Sarah Pinborough, No.1 bestselling author of Behind Her Eyes

‘Razor-sharp’ The Sun

‘Chock-full of menace, red herrings, and well-drawn characters who pull you one way, then hurl you in the opposite direction. I had my theories – they were all wrong! Highly recommend’ Caz Frear, No.1 bestselling author of Sweet Little Lies

‘Think Rebecca, Body Heat, and Gaslight. Lisa Hall’s dark thriller plays on three classic tropes and does the seemingly unimaginable: it improves on them. You’re going to devour this one’ Christina Dalcher, bestselling author of Vox and Q

‘A sharp game of cat and mouse with a brilliant, twisty plot. Unputdownable!’ Candis

‘Darkly addictive and impossible to predict, this is Lisa Hall at her absolute best’ CWA Dagger-winning author Chris Whitaker

  • (3/5)
    An OK story, but it was slow midway through. The ending was predictable.
  • (2/5)
    Definitely not one of the best thriller books I’ve ever heard, actually really bordering on lame. I just kept listening because I really couldn’t believe it would actually be as boring as it was, I kept believing against all hope that it would get better. IT DIDN’T. Narrator was good but some sentences get repeated, I actually thought I was imagining it at first.
    Slow. No depth to the characters. Uninteresting. Repetitive.

    I enjoyed it enough to continue listening... it was odd.. I really enjoyed lisa hall's 'between you and me' this one not as much. I really don't like the name 'carro' much and hearing it over and over and over in reference to his dead wife was so grating! Every character throughout the book continuously used the dead wife's name! It felt like the name 'carro' made up a quarter of the book!! Ok rant over sorry... other than that it was ok. I felt a bit like the relationship lacked some depth.
