I Loved It!
The Marriage Pact is a fast-paced, riveting psychological thriller.
Alice and Jake were newlyweds, and after receiving encouragement, from influential people, joined the Pact. It was very exciting, cryptic, and new. The Pact was a secret society that followed and enforced a set of rules that guaranteed successful marriages for their members. At first, the Pact sounded wonderful. Alice and Jake were all for having their marriage last forever.
When Vivian had come to their home carrying the Pact contract, Alice and Jake should have escorted her out the door. But since she convinced the couple that there had never been a divorce within the Pact, Alice and Jake signed the papers. It wasn’t until Alice and Jake broke some rules that their torture began, and their life started to spin out of control.
I found the storyline captivating, and although the book is a work of fiction and the punishments over-the-top, parts of the Pact reminded me of various cults. The book is fascinating, the characters complex and likable and the dialogue realistic. The Pact is an entertaining novel, engrossing and thought-provoking. This is the first book that I have read by this talented author, but it will not be my last.
Thank you, Random House Publishing Group-Ballantine and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.
