Not what I expected. Strange Title! Claire is not what she appears to be. Chapters jump from the present to ten years ago and back again. Confusing to say the least. Not really plausible either. Who will be Claire's next victim? Personally I don't care!
The Couple by Sarah Mitchell was not the book that I was expecting at all. The story was slow to begin with and then rushed at the end. I found it to be a bit far fetched and full of really horrible characters. There was not one that I liked in the entire book. It was at times confusing and it took me longer that usual to read as I just could not get into it as much as I would have liked.
Claire and Angus are engaged to be married and are buying their first home together. They buy a house from Mark, who reminds Claire of her ex boyfriend Daniel. Mark becomes a big part of Sarahs life and she starts to make some really stupid decisions. Her relationship with Angus is strained at the best of times and after they move in it gets worse. She starts to discover things about his life that don't marry up to what she has been told. The ending was good but it felt rushed after the start of the book dragged out.
