5 STAR BOOK REVIEW: The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty


Mother of three and wife of John-Paul, Cecilia discovers an old envelope in the attic. Written in her husband’s hand, it says: to be opened only in the event of my death.

Curious, she opens it – and time stops.

John-Paul’s letter confesses to a terrible mistake which, if revealed, would wreck their family as well as the lives of others.

Cecilia – betrayed, angry and distraught – wants to do the right thing, but right for who? If she protects her family by staying silent, the truth will worm through her heart. But if she reveals her husband’s secret, she will hurt those she loves most . . .

My Review

I totally devoured this book in just a few hours it gave me a HUGE book hangover.

Without giving to much away I loved the fact you didn’t know the contents of the letter until a third of the way through the book which kept you guessing as to what  John Pauls secret was (I didn’t guess) which I loved because when the ‘Secret’ was finally revealed it was a huge surprise . 

Also loved the face that after a ‘cliffhanger’ suddenly you were moved onto another character everytime that happened the Eastenders ”doof doof doof”came to mind.


Thrilling read I cannot wait for Liane’s next book


Go and get it on amazon NOW its only 1.99 (16th July)
