What is the husbands secret you are wondering?

I’ve just started getting back into reading and I am so happy I have started with this amazing novel! There were many twists and the book wasn’t predictable so I did not know what was going to happen next. I loved how there were 3 separate storylines of the main characters and they all come together. Can’t wait to read more from this author.


I had truly high expectations for this book. I felt it was too predictable and I was ready to be done with it by the end. I am hoping other books by this author are better.

So good! Could not put it down!

Moriarty’s writing style was so captivating that I had such a hard time putting it down! The anticipation for what was coming next had me sitting on the edge of my seat! Would recommend this to anyone!

A Very Compelling Story..

I read this novel a couple years ago. It reminds me of the show, "Dateline" and how they present, little by little, the true facts of a case until all is discovered and revealed. I just don't understand how so many people in real life can live with themselves after committing such a heinous crime, let alone in a novel. I felt the husband to be a weasel, and had no backbone or conscience what-so-ever. Moriarty is definitely an adept tale spinner, popular in her own country of Australia, and I will probably read another of her stories.

"Unputdownable" is right

A review on the cover of my copy says "unputdownable" and it's completely accurate. I borrowed a friend's copy of another Liane Moriarty book and ever since then I'm hooked. I love her writing, her stories, her twists. Haven't found a book of Moriarty's I haven't loved.

Wow Wow Wow

I haven't read a good book, like this in a long time. I can't remember the last time I absolutely couldn't out a book down because of the story and needing to know more. The last time I had to contemplate sleeping or reading was when I was younger and reading the Harry Potter series. This is the second book I've read from this author and I want them all!

Very good story

Omg! This is 1st book I read from this author & I couldn't put it down! Very good story & certainly not what you think it might be! Really leaves you thinking hard about lifes choices we make. Great read.

Husband's Secret

It started a little slow for me but I that changed after the first 100 pages. It's my first Moriarty but it won't be my last.

Las condiciones del libro excelente!

Decidí escribir este comentario no acerca de lo que trata sino de las condiciones del libro. Totalmente nuevo (lo compre como nuevo). La entrega fue rápida y me sorprendí bastante por la calidad del material. Fue mi primera vez, me gusto mucho esta compra! Recomendación 10/10

The Husband’s Secret is wonderful

Liane Moriarty is now one of my favorite authors next to Jodi Picoult. This was very well written and, like Jodi, you can picture being there. I highly recommend this book.

A must read

This is my second book I read by her. Her book, "What Alice Forgot," I finished that book in two days. This book, well it starts off slow. I was bored but my friends told me not to give up on this book because it is a good book. After chapter 4, I could not put it down. The elements of this story picked up speed at the right time to grab your attention back and you can't stop reading it. (lol). Must read! Good book.

A complete knock out!

I'm not a big fan of different point-of-views within a story but this one blew me out of the water! This is a must read! I actually felt sympathy for the main antagonist. I would recommend this to anyone who loves a good plot twist!

This is a must read!

This was my third book by this author and may be close to my favorite of hers. Loved it. I know some people can figure out a story line by the middle of the book, I try not to ever do that if I can help it. This was worth going into it not knowing what the book was about at all. It was a page turner for me. Lots of parts I didn't anticipate. Loved the ending.

OK, I was hooked from the very first few lines in chapter one!!! She finds a letter written from her husband. The envelope was meant for her to open when he dies. But in fact, they have been living as normal as any other family and he is very much alive! Why would he write her a letter for her to read only if has died? Well of course I needed to know what the husbands letter said! And you will too, so get ready for one powerful story that will rattle your bones!
