The Husband’s Secret. With a title like that, you’re trying to guess the secret from the very first page. Is he having an affair? Is he gay? Transgender? Does he have a secret family in another town? Is he a government agent? A “sleeper” spy? Head of a major crime ring? What?
I went through all these usual suspects (and more) and discarded them one by one. Then something else would happen and I’d start wondering about one of them again. It kept me turning pages, but I would have done that anyway because the writing is so lovely. In Liane Moriarity books all her characters are so real. There are no cardboard cut-out people, everyone in the family and the neighborhood has a life full of complications and secrets of their own.
No spoilers from me, just a promise. Read this book. You won’t be sorry.
