Book Review: The Husband's Secret

I saw this book on Good Reads a couple weeks ago when I was updating my reading list and since I had just finished a book and was needing a new one I thought I’d give it a go.  After reading a bit about it on Amazon I decided I would go ahead and make the purchase.  I dove right into The Husband’s Secret and although it gave a lot of details and flip flopped between several character’s lives all unknowing to them I really liked it.  I was holding out this great hope for a huge story changing secret, German related, but midway through when I did find out the secret it was sort of a letdown…only because I had built up in my head this grand story.  After I found out the real secret the book really got interesting and started to take shape for me.  I then, of course, had to finish reading it and in a hurry so I could find out the consequence and outcome of the chain of events that THE HUSBAND’S SECRET put into play.  Plus the ending was THE PERFECT ending to a book.  There were no loose ends and nothing left you hanging wondering what happened.  It even gave you a look into the future of what COULD of happened. 

Amazon Synopsis
My darling Cecilia, if you’re reading this, then I’ve died. . . Imagine that your husband wrote you a letter, to be opened after his death. Imagine, too, that the letter contains his deepest, darkest secret—something with the potential to destroy not just the life you built together, but the lives of others as well. Imagine, then, that you stumble across that letter while your husband is still very much alive. . . .Cecilia Fitzpatrick has achieved it all—she’s an incredibly successful businesswoman, a pillar of her small community, and a devoted wife and mother. Her life is as orderly and spotless as her home. But that letter is about to change everything, and not just for her: Rachel and Tess barely know Cecilia—or each other—but they too are about to feel the earth-shattering repercussions of her husband’s secret.  Acclaimed author Liane Moriarty has written a gripping, thought-provoking novel about how well it is really possible to know our spouses—and, ultimately, ourselves.

Overall I really enjoyed this book and I even thought about it after I finished reading it which is unusual.  Books I read mostly don’t spur after thoughts because they are VERY fictional and are just fluff but this book was actually about real life and a lot of things that adults have to go through and deal with.  Now of course I’m sure that most adults don’t have to deal with secrets exactly of these because that would be really dramatic but I can definitely see this scenario playing out in the real world.
Currently reading my first book by the popular murder/mystery author Patricia Cornwell, Postmortem.
Happy Reading!
