Just The Nicest Couple by Mary Kubica

This book was sent to Traveling With T for review consideration.

Just The Nicest Couple

Summary: Two couples, two close friends, one missing husband…

Jake Hayes is missing. This much is certain. At first, his wife, Nina, thinks he is blowing off steam at a friend’s house after their heated fight the night before. But then a day goes by. Two days. Five. And Jake is still nowhere to be found.

Lily Scott, Nina’s friend and coworker, thinks she may have been the last to see Jake before he went missing. After Lily confesses everything to her husband, Christian, the two decide that nobody can find out what happened leading up to Jake’s disappearance, especially not Nina. But Nina is out there looking for her husband, and she won’t stop until the truth is discovered.


Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

I have been a fan of Mary Kubica since her debut, but Just The Nicest Couple is not her best work.

Mary generally has no problem with her characters being dirty, secretive, and sometimes no redeeming qualities. And there is some of that in this book. But there is also parts to characters that made me cringe. Christian is a bit too obsessed with Lily for my liking. I can’t remember the book I read in the last few months where the main character acted a bit too much in love with his wife or girlfriend, but there were similar vibes and it’s just “Ehh, we get it. You are SO IN LOVE with this person.”


What I Liked:

The cover. It def made me want to check the book out.

A twist that I did not see coming.


Bottom line: For me, it was ok. I read it and liked it for the most part. But I know that her books have the potential (and actually have been better).
