Caitlin Garvey has longed for this moment.
The day her husband, Jack, would walk back through the door, and tell her all he ever wanted was to be with her.
Only this isn’t quite the reunion she had in mind.
Jack has been in a hit and run accident.
He has no memory of why he left Caitlin, no clue about his new family who are worried he’s missing, and no recollection of the phone call he made two weeks ago – I made a terrible mistake that I can’t put right. All I can do is get out.
Jack is different to the man that walked out a year ago – his mood seems more volatile, and Caitlin is certain he is hiding a secret of his own.
But Caitlin finally has her husband by her side and with Jack suffering from amnesia, surely the easiest thing would be to stay quiet.
But can you really trust a man who simply vanished from your life?
What was it all about
My Husband’s Secret was quite a twisty read with a mixture of emotions that arose while reading it.
Caitlin got her wish fulfilled. Her husband Jack was back where he rightfully belonged. With her. In their home. But he was amnesiac after a car accident, having forgotten a whole year and the reasons why he had left her and taken up residence with another woman, Lydia, in London.
Caitlin decided not to enlighten him and just be in the moment, when Lydia made a trip in search of the man she loved and who had promised her forever, even when there was abuse.
How it made me feel - The Good
I liked the way there were clues written in about what was happening in Jack’s life.
The second half was much better as the thrilling sections began then.
Written in dual POVs, I liked how the author played off the women’s craziness. Though for the life of me, I couldn’t begin to guess why they both wanted Jack.
I knew where the story was heading to right from the beginning. But the journey to the end wasn’t so bad.
It started more as a domestic drama where both women wanted him – and I wondered why as he didn’t seem to have any special qualities.
After knowing the truth too, I didn’t want him. Not my book boyfriend.
A thriller that did make me forget my chores as I wanted to know which whacky woman would get him, so I would stay it was entertaining to read.
I downloaded the digital version of the book from an online retail, and this is my journey down its pages, straight from the heart. STRICTLY HONEST and UNBIASED.
If you’ve loved the review, buy me a cuppa to perk me up.
