The Divorce by Victoria Jenkins- review.


I thought I knew how to help them. I knew nothing.

When Lydia and Josh Green walk into Karen’s office one rainy February morning, Karen sees a couple under stress, almost at breaking point. But working with struggling couples, finding out more about their problems, helping to save their marriages, is what Karen does.

But as Karen spends more time with Lydia and Josh, her sense of unease grows…

Lydia is something more than just a woman whose marriage is in trouble. She seems frightened for her safety.

Josh is angry, grief-stricken and seems to be hiding a dark secret.

And soon Karen herself is afraid – there is something about the behaviour of this couple that recalls traumatic incidents from her own past. There is something there that may be the key to saving them, if Karen can only unlock it in time…

The Divorce will have you reading through the night and the ending will leave you breathless. Perfect for everyone who loved Gone Girl, The Woman in the Window and The Wife Between Us.

My thoughts

Firstly, this was a fast and intriguing read, where the story unfolded at just the right pace. Secrets were at the heart of it all and those secrets were what kept me racing through the pages at lightning speed.

I needed to find out what was behind Lydia and Josh, they didn’t seem in any way transparent – or did they? Or which one did? Damn, I couldn’t call it!

I loved how marriage counsellor, Karen’s story panned out as she delved deeper into Josh and Lydia’s problems. All sounds straightforward- right? Wrong. I’m saying no more on that, but be prepared for surprises and a bumpy ride as you flick through the pages.

I found my support for each character bouncing around all over the place. As more of the story came out, the words ‘messed up’ are the first that come to mind. It’s dark and totally had me gripped. If you really enjoy psychological thrillers, The Divorce won’t disappoint.
