The Marriage Pact
by Michelle Richmond
mystery
From The Jacket:Newlyweds Alice and Jake are a picture-perfect couple. Alice, once a singer in a well-known rock band, is now a successful lawyer. Jake is a partner in an up-and-coming psychology practice. Their life together holds endless possibilities. After receiving an enticing wedding gift from one of Alice’s prominent clients, they decide to join an exclusive and mysterious group known only as The Pact. The goal of The Pact seems simple: to keep marriages happy and intact. And most of its rules make sense. Always answer the phone when your spouse calls. Exchange thoughtful gifts monthly. Plan a trip together once per quarter. . . . Never mention The Pact to anyone. Alice and Jake are initially seduced by the glamorous parties, the sense of community, their widening social circle of like-minded couples. And then one of them breaks the rules. The young lovers are about to discover that for adherents to The Pact, membership, like marriage, is for life. And The Pact will go to any lengths to enforce that rule. For Jake and Alice, the marriage of their dreams is about to become their worst nightmare.
The subject matter is intriguing and thought provoking in this psychological thriller. Newlyweds, Jake and Alice, receive a very unusual wedding gift. An invitation to become a member of an exclusive club designed to guarantee your marriage remains as blissful as the day you were married. There are rules and there are consequences for breaking the rules. This book takes a hard look at what marriage means and spices things up with a glimpse into cult life. A bit unbelievable at times, but I think it imitates real life – think Scientology. Recommend
