Review: The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty
Summary from Goodreads:
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.
I'm on a Moriarty kick at the moment, and since I'm trying to read more novels out side of YA it is a great thing.
I love her interesting writing style and the way she creates interesting characters that all weave together by the end of her novels. I binge read this novel because it was due at the library and was an easy one to slip into and read until the end in one sitting.
I enjoyed Big Little Lies but so far this one is now my favorite of her novels, I enjoyed the characters in this one more even if the mystery was not as dense or hard to guess.
I'm not a huge fan of multiple POVS but I believe she does a great job with those kind of novels, however, I would still like to see a different thing from her in the future.
I recommend checking out her novels if you enjoy great characters and writing.
Four Stars Out of Five Stars.
