The Perfect Couple By Lisa Hall | Book Review


Today I'm taking part in the blog tour for The perfect couple by Lisa Hall, which was kindly sent to me by HQ books*. If you love a good domestic thriller which is full of suspense then I can not recommend this book enough to you.

What is The Perfect Couple about:

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…

What I liked about The Perfect Couple:

The Perfect Couple is a really interesting domestic thriller which was full of suspense and totally kept me hooked till the very end.

One thing I really loved about this book was how creepy some parts were. There was a lot of tension and suspense in this book, which kept me engaged until the very end. 

The writing was really engaging and it was a super quick and easy book to read. 

There were also plenty of twists and turns, lots of which I didn't see coming. Although, I've read lots of domestic thrillers like this previously, I still really enjoyed the experience of reading this book.  


What I did not like about The Perfect Couple:

Even though I did enjoy this book, I did struggle with some of the tropes. This book isn't that original or unique and does redo a lot of the same things I've read in domestic thrillers previously. 

However, if you haven't read lots of domestic thrillers before, I think you'll really like this one.

Who do I recommend The Perfect Couple to:

I think people who have not read a lot of domestic thrillers will really enjoy this book. If you are new to the genre I think this is the perfect place to start if you want to get a taste of the domestic thriller world.

There are some potential trigger warnings for suicide, bipolar, violence and domestic abuse. If those are topics which upset you maybe give this book a miss

Overall thoughts:

Overall, I think this is a solid well written domestic thriller that is perfect for people new to the genre, highly recommend!

The Perfect Couple comes out on the 20th August
