Written by Caroline England
Do you really know your friends?
On the afternoon of Nick and Lisa’s wedding, their close friend is found poised on a hotel window ledge, ready to jump.
As the shock hits their friendship group, they soon realise that none of them are being as honest with themselves – or with each other – as they think.
And there are secrets lurking that could destroy everything.
Tense, disturbing and clever, My Husband’s Lies is a breath-taking read, perfect for fans of Lucy Clarke and Erin Kelly.
An Eye-Popping and Breathtaking Read!!
I feel a bit grubby after reading this – sort of how I would expect a peeping tom to feel. I’ve been a fly on the wall among this group of friends and I know all their innermost secrets . . .
I’m pleased that the blurb doesn’t give much away on this one; I’m not really keen on waiting for something to happen which I know is coming in a book. No such worries here – it’s a cracking read. As you would expect, there are secrets and lies and boy, are they whoppers! I have been glued to this one, almost afraid to let it out of my sight! Each time I laid it aside, I found myself pondering on what I had learned so far and, trust me, you don’t have to wait long for the skeletons to pop out of the cupboard. What an amazing read!!
Like most of us, Caroline England’s beautifully created characters would like to think they are honest and straightforward people. But how well do we really know about our friends? Enough to trust them with all our secrets – and to keep theirs? This is one of the most thought-provoking novels of recent times and it will make you look at almost everyone you know with suspicion in your soul. Very few relationships are completely and totally honest but this bunch really take the biscuit!
This is my first experience of this author’s work – and I’m quite surprised to find out it’s only her second novel. This is a really accomplished piece of writing, and not one to be forgotten easily. I have found myself rooting for just about everyone at sometime or another. This is an eye-popping and breathtaking read, and one I’m so glad to have added to my list. As soon as I can fit it in, the first novel will be on my kindle too! In my opinion, this is quite a masterpiece and as such I completely recommend it.
My grateful thanks to publishers Avon Books UK for approving my copy via NetGalley. This is my honest, original and unbiased review.
