Overview

[A] must-read thriller . . . My Husband’s Wife has an ending that will change the way you view marriage forever.” —Bustle

“If you loved Gone Girl and The Talented Mr. Ripley, you’ll love My Husband’s Wife. It’s got every thriller’s trifecta: love, marriage, and murder.” —Parade

“The novel’s plot is as provocative as its title.” —The Washington Post
 
From the bestselling author of The Dead Ex, a deliciously addictive psychological thriller about the powerful effects of little white lies on three intertwined lives—and when those secrets become deadly 


When young lawyer Lily marries Ed, she’s determined to make a fresh start and leave the secrets of the past behind. But then she takes on her first murder case and meets Joe, a convicted murderer to whom Lily is strangely drawn—and for whom she will soon be willing to risk almost anything.

But Lily is not the only one with secrets. Her next-door neighbor Carla may be only nine, but she has already learned that secrets are powerful things. That they can get her whatever she wants.

When Lily finds Carla on her doorstep twelve years later, a chain of events is set in motion that can end only one way.

Page 1 till the end was amazing! I have never read a book that each page was exciting and no dull moments! Cant wait till her new book is released and just as good

The book keeps giving up snatches of info in a gentle motion... one step forward, one or two back. It is an excellent read to the very last .

just when you think you know what happened, and how it happened, you're wrong. the story twists so many ways you really have to pay attention. Great criminal suspense read with a little bit of family drama and even plays through the many different layers of love in a lifetime...

STUNK! I kept waiting for the story/plot to start. The book was mostly about the characters not getting along or just having a tough time dealing with life, in general. There was no plot, no suspense, and no interesting character development. The only thing the author did was tie up events in the book (anything she brought up, she later explained the whys –even mundane details), but even then, the author had characters taking actions that were in complete conflict (& not even remotely believable/realistic) with how she built them up throughout the book. HORRIBLE book! Don't waste your time!

This book started out as a page turner but ended up too long and boring. I had trouble finishing it.

Everyone belonged in prison. I found this novel disappointing. I guess I expected so much more. Would not recommend.

The book has a good plot but it’s told at a very slow pace. At times I wanted to skip pages to get to the point.

Was not as fast paced and exciting as I was expecting. No big twists or turns, very predictable. More of a drama than a thriller. Honestly, boring read for me.

I almost didn't keep up with this one. I thought the first third of the book was slow, choppy, just didn't keep my attention..but 2/3 of the way through I was hooked. Brilliant twists and turns. You don't actually root for any of these characters but they are well written.

Wonderful book ! My grandma and I read it very fast. We both loved it. It is one of those books that you think about in the times that you aren't reading it.. I found that my mind was always wondering what is going on and what might happen next. I would recommend to anyone.

This book kept me on the edge of my seat. I would hide in the bathroom at work and read it. There was so many twists and turns. I rarely give 5 star ratings but this one was up there. R.G

This book was pretty intriguing and I found myself wanting to read it in my spare time for a while, but after about the first quarter of the book, I started getting really irritated with all of the characters. I couldn't sympathize for any of them. I also did not care for the author's writing style as she frequently, with tag phrases, and a billion commas, cut sentences, and I'd have to re-read the sentence to understand what the thought process was supposed to be; it's not an effective way to write, in my opinion. The story line was engaging enough, and I was still eager enough to finish reading the book; though, when I got to Part II, I really just wanted to finish it to learn the ending but was getting annoyed with the stories. For one, there seemed to be a real distaste to me about Lily and her brother's relationship, and Ed and Carla's. Also, as a practitioner in the field of clinical psych, it seems like it's become a fad to make characters these days have Autism, and well, I don't think 2/3 of the people who supposedly had Autism in this book actually sounded like it. Maybe OCD, maybe ODD, but it's just exaggerated in this book and becomes a tiresome theme. I gave it 3 stars because it was good enough and engaging enough for me to finish it, but I probably wouldn't be recommending it to a friend.

This book was never boring from page 1 to the end. Lots of twists and turns and written by an incredibly bright and talented author. Very glad I found this author.

Bought as an ebook to pass some time on my slow days at work. Ended up reading it obsessively for three days straight until I finished the book. I would definitely recommend to anyone that enjoys mysteries such as Gone Girl.
