The Husband's Secret Reviews
This book is about secrets and lies. About the choices you make in your life and the consequences of those actions.
What would you do if you found a letter from your spouse telling you to open it ONLY upon their death.
What would you do … Would you open it? Really? How would that decision affect your life? Can you ever go back?
How well do we ever really know those we love, those we live with, those we hold dear to our heart. What secrets do they hide that we can never imagine? ...more
This author has the snappy inner dialogue thing down! She is witty, witty, witty! I was mesmerized with the first few chapters, kept greedily turning the pages. But then I realized that things were getting shallower and shallower instead of deeper and deeper. It was like walking into a pool expecting to swim once you hit the deep end and discovering that you're wading in the kiddie pond. All of a sudden, it was clear that I didn't genuinely like any of the characters and that everyone--everyone! ...more
Some secrets are meant to stay secret forever. Just ask Pandora.
The Husband's Secret is a decent book, but I honestly expected to enjoy it a lot more than I did. I love mysteries that focus on the characters and their relationships with each other; and I love reading about morally questionable people, especially women. I find complex relationships between women to be fascinating - woven with friendship, jealousies and secrets - but I found this book superficial and, at times, even boring.
*5+ Stars … A new favorite!*
Can I say I effing love this author after having read only two of her books? Because that’s exactly what’s going on right now…
I’ve been on a huge Mystery/Psychological Thriller kick lately, and I’ve realized with many books of this genre, some (or all) of the characters are very easy to hate.
Which is fine.
And so I was ready for that. I put my little crazy-book-wall up and was prepared to just observe this story without really letting the characters in.
But they crept ...more
ETA: Okay, I finished it.
I still stand by my original opinion. Three unlikable women are the main characters in this novel.
Cecilia is a ninny. She finds this letter in the attic addressed to her, only to be opened when her husband dies. He's not dead. She spends the first half of the book waffling between should-I-open-it/should-I-not. It's annoying. Meanwhile, she runs through every scenario she can think of and also fantasizes about what every single family member and friend would a ...more
When I read the cover jacket summary, I was highly intrigued. What did this man do that he wrote a letter to his wife that should be opened upon his death... maybe I should do something like that! But wait... do I have a secret I need to reveal... yes... worth putting in a sealed letter that I can't disclose until I'm dead and buried... no... so I guess this won't be something I need to do in the future. Eh, I tried.
But reading the book is something to do! And it did not disappoint. It has many ...more
"The Husband's Secret" is a prime example of why I pay attention to book covers. As I walked into the bookstore, this first edition book with a pearlescent background; embossed black title; and a shattered pink rose immediately drew me to it--beautiful and on sale, too!
I was familiar with the author's name, but I'd never read any of her books. My expectations were not high, but I definitely needed a change of pace from the previous four books I'd read. This one turned out to be the perfect book ...more
Well, colour me surprised. A multiple POV novel that I not only enjoyed, but I enjoyed 5★ worth!
Brilliantly plotted, with believable characters with believable motivations. I have certainly met a few Cecilia's in my time!
I liked the "resolution." This seemed like a realistic outcome. Not everything in life gets tied together in a neat, tidy bow. While I think it would have been a better book without the epilogue, I'm not going to knock a ★ off.
A great start to my reading year!
