Book Review { The Husband's Secret }

Synopsis: At the heart of The Husband’s Secret is a letter that’s not meant to be read

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.

My thoughts: I have been hearing people reading this book for the past few months and I finally got around to purchasing it and I am so glad I did! This was my first book I have read by Liane Moriarty and I loved her style of writing! The book is about secrets and lies and the decisions you decide to make regarding those secrets and lies. The book follows three women and their stories; to be honest I am not really sure why one character, Tess, is even in it - she has nothing to do with the other two characters stories other than being from the same town, Rachel and Cecilia; at least they were relevant to each other. Maybe I missed something in that area of the book? 

Although I really didn't feel connected to the characters I really enjoyed the story line; I found myself constantly guessing what was going to happen and turning page by page. The beginning when all the characters were being introduced was a little confusing, but as you made it through it was an easy read!
