The Husband’s Secret was not so much of a secret for me. Without giving the story away, let’s just say I knew what the secret was going to be WAY before Cecilia opened it. I doubt I was the only reader to have guessed before we formally found out, but I don’t think it took anything away from the book.
It is very much written like “Gone Girl” in the sense that it flits between each of the main characters part of the story and has that suspense where you’d never actually guess the ending.
I found the book really easy reading and couldn’t put it down…. So much so I got through it in just a day on holiday! It’s not particularly intellectual or thought provoking and I doubt it’s going to be a Penguin classic or a GCSE English literature study piece but its definitely worth packing in your suitcase this summer for a light hearted “chick flick” style book.
My only criticism is that I wanted things to turn out differently for Connor and Tess, and for Will and Felicity to be hung out to dry. Who wouldn’t?
I’ve kept this post short and sweet so as not to give the game away, but there is a bit of a karma comes back around undertone to it. Has anyone else any thoughts?
