The Marriage Pact is the new Richard & Judy Book Club Thriller

The Marriage Pact is the new Richard & Judy Book Club Thriller

I’m over the moon that The Marriage Pact is one of 8 books selected for spring 2018 Richard and Judy Book Club. The biggest book club in the UK, Richard & Judy Book Club editions are sold at WH Smith stores and feature additional content for book clubs.

Richard says, “The Marriage Pact is at once a genuine love story and grim contemplation of the real nature of marriage: possession, jealousy, and control. It’s extreme but grippingly though-provoking.”

Judy says, “You know the kind of thing: make sure your spouse knows you love him by giving him a thoughtful gift from time to time; always answer the phone when he calls; make sure you go away together on frequent small romantic breaks. Sounds sensible – but be afraid. Be very afraid.”

If you’re in the UK, you can pick up the Richard and Judy Book Club edition at WH Smith or the airport. If you’re not in the UK, you can still read Richard & Judy feature content online:

O Magazine Books Editor Leigh Haber went on local New York television station PIX11 to recommend her favorite summer reads. I was delighted that she included The Marriage Pact in this great line-up of books!

See the segment with Haber’s favorite beach reads (including new books by two great writers I’ve only met recently, Janelle Brown and Jenny Zhang).

Today is also the first day of August, which means it’s time of the August Indie Next list. The Marriage Pact made the list, along with some of my favorite books of the year, including Joshilyn Jackson‘s WONDERFUL novel The Almost Sisters and Fierce Kingdom by Gin Phillips.
