It's been a while!

Yeah, it's been a while ... excuses, excuses, blah blah!  Here's a book review! :)

The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty
Publisher:  Penguin Books UK
Publication Date:  29 August 2013
My Rating:  4/5

{from GoodReads}

My Darling Cecilia
If you're reading this, then I've died . . .

Imagine your husband wrote you a letter, to be opened after his death. Imagine, too, that the letter contains his deepest, darkest secret - something so terrible it would destroy not just the life you built together, but the lives of others too. Imagine, then, that you stumble across that letter while your husband is still very much alive . . .

Cecilia Fitzpatrick achieved it all - she's an incredibly successful business woman, a pillar of her small community and a devoted wife and mother. Her life is as orderly and spotless as her home. But that letter is about to change everything, and not just for her: Rachel and Tess barely know Cecilia - or each other - but they too are about to feel the earth-shattering repercussions of her husband's devastating secret.

It took me a little while to be gripped by this story, but once I was familiar with the characters there was no putting it down.  A very interesting look at family dynamics and putting on appearances … and the consequences when appearances can no longer be kept up!

Engaging characters and an intriguing storyline with interesting sub plots keep your attention.  A little predictable, perhaps, and maybe lacking in a male voice, but an enjoyable read nonetheless.
