It's always 'couple of' in British English. I've edited US books and discuss this with the author when it comes up. You don't have to use correct grammar in a book. It can be in dialect, and this can include almost perfect grammar but some dialect phrases. So I do allow 'couple' without 'of' if the narrator or the author is American and wants that wording.
