“Grabs you on the first page and doesn’t let go until you reach the end.” —Laura Dave, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Thing He Told Me

A husband’s disappearance links two couples in this twisty thriller from master of suspense Mary Kubica

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.

"Rich with detail and a mounting, almost suffocating sense of dread, Just the Nicest Couple is a dark and twisted exploration of loyalty, family, and how far we’ll go to protect the ones we love." —Andrea Bartz, New York Times bestselling author of We Were Never Here

    Her facts about a Tesla are wrong. They do not have an ignition nor a gas pedal. That bothered me.
  • Got me sucked in on page 1!!

    This book had some good twists! I do feel like the chapters about Lily & Christian were the exact same every time. Thus making this a little redundant. I also felt like the ending was rushed. I would have preferred a longer ending & explanation & less repetitiveness in the beginning! Otherwise, a great read!
  • Predictable!

    I normally love Kubica’s but I was a little bored and halfway through I already knew where it was headed. I was not surprised at the end. Normally they are so good but this one was a little meh. Awesome read but not for the price. 😭

    Truly a book that I could not put down. Exciting twist and turns. And an ending I never saw coming.
  • Nothing too new or exciting.
