The Couple by Sarah Mitchell – Book Review


Whatever you think you know… you’re wrong.

Following a whirlwind four-month romance, lawyer Claire and hotel entrepreneur Angus are engaged to be married. Happy and successful, and ready to start their new life together, Claire and Angus find what they believe to be the perfect home.

But when Claire meets Mark, the man selling them the house, he looks eerily familiar. He looks exactly like the man she loved five years ago, the man she couldn’t bear to lose.

As Claire finds herself irresistibly drawn to Mark and crosses lines she never thought she’d cross, Angus’ behaviour becomes increasingly suspicious. Soon Claire doesn’t know whether she can trust Mark, Angus… or even herself.

The Couple is a psychological thriller with a stunning twist, perfect for fans of The Girl Before, The Wife Between Us, and The Woman in the Window.



The Couple is a psychological thriller by Sarah Mitchell and I have to say I really enjoyed reading it.

It’s written from two perspectives, the past and the present giving deeper insight into the protagonist and the characters.

I have to say I didn’t find any of the characters particularly likeable but I’m sure that’s the point and a credit to the authors clever writing.

Claire works for the Immigration Service and is now engaged after a whirlwind romance, to Angus…He is a hotel entrepreneur and they are about to buy their perfect home together.

Claire goes to view a house they like and meets Mark, the seller, but he looks familiar to her, and reminds her of a former lover……as a result Claire is drawn to him, then Angus starts to behave a bit oddly…..Can Claire trust either of them or even herself?

Sarah Mitchell’s writing is creative and expressive and this tale is a twisty, turny, fast paced ride. I really enjoyed it and can recommend it to all lovers of a psychological thriller.

I would like to thank the Author/Bookouture and NetGalley for the opportunity to read this book for free in exchange for a fair, honest and unbiased review.
