The Husband’s Secret demonstrates this power with one of the most entertaining stories I have read in ages. Liane Moriarty is far more than the skillful writer of potboilers. Her compelling characters could be your friends and neighbors, nice and neurotic in equal doses. Perfect for book clubs-lots to debate in these pages. Amid three intertwined storylines and terrific plot twists, Moriarty presents a nuanced and moving portrait of the meaning of love, both marital and familial, and how life can hinge on a misunderstanding or a decision made in haste. The Husband’s Secret is so good, you won’t be able to keep it to yourself.

This is a review for the Audible version of The Husband's Secret. 

Oh, Liane Moriarty. You have won me over again. 

I recently read Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty and immediately fell in love with her talent for characterization and the very Desperate Housewives snarky-ness and hilarity of the dialogue. Now be warned, her novels do have an abundance of characters and usually change perspectives as the chapters change--- but it is so worth it to see the character development unfold and see the unique ways that she intertwines their stories. 

In The Husband's Secret, you are quickly introduced to three main women who are at the center of the story. 
Cecilia Fitzpatrick -- For me, Cecilia is the heart of the story. I love her over-the-top, hilarious character. She's a front-runner who seemingly has her life all together, packed nice and organized into a little box (much like the Tupperware she seells). Cecilia finds a letter from her husband in the attic that is noted to be opened in the event of his death. We all know what is going to happen here... You can't dangle a carrot in front of a horse and expect him not to move. 
Tess O'Leary -- Tess is your average wife, mom, business-owner combo, nothing drastically exciting happening in her life.. that is until her husband and cousin (who is also her best friend and business partner) sit her down to "let her know" that they have fallen in love. How will Tess cope with this news? How do you move forward after an announcement like that?
Rachel Crowley -- Rachel is a middle-aged woman who is fighting the conflict of her young grandson moving (with his family) to New York, in a completely different country across a vast ocean. She is also suffering through the echoing grief that lingers from her daughter's murder many years ago. Does time heal all wounds? Will Rachel ever be able to find a sense of closure? 

These characters are so much fun and the conflicts they all face are so real. They are conflicts that many people face every day, but are by no means easy to deal with. I could feel the hurt, frustration, betrayal, confusion, paranoia, and anxiety of all of these characters and loved watching their stories unfold. Their stories all intersect in the end in the most unexpected and captivating ways. Make sure you don't skip over the epilogue. I love when a novel can make me stop and ponder things in my own life and my own choices, and the epilogue of this novel did just that. 

“None of us ever know all the possible courses our lives could have and maybe should have taken. It's probably just as well. Some secrets are meant to stay secret forever. Just ask Pandora.”

**One last note: I have only ever listened to the Audible version of Liane Moriarty's books and I will probably continue to experience them this way because I think the actual audio form of these character's voices is brilliant. I love how their personalities are portrayed through their dialogue and the intonation in their voices.

Especially my dear, sassy Cecilia...

***Really 4.5 Stars***

This book was just...whoa. I've never read anything quite like it! At times it read like a murder mystery, at other times a humorous women's fiction or even literary fiction.

I was hooked from the very beginning with Cecilia's voice and the intrigue of her finding a letter addressed to her from her husband, to be opened only in the event of his death. As Cecilia struggles with the ethics of whether she should open the letter, we're introduced to the two other main characters: Tess, whose husband and best friend have just announced they've fallen in love, and Rachel, an older woman who's still grieving the murder of her daughter. How these three women's stories tie together is what makes this novel so riveting!

I appreciated the parallels drawn to the Berlin Wall, perhaps a symbol for the before and after of momentous life changes, and the themes of secrets and guilt. I didn't realize it until just now, but Polly's obsession with secrets was terrific foreshadowing.

There were so many twists and turns. And that ending! It was so bittersweet and unexpected. There's A LOT to discuss with this book so I'm thrilled my book club is currently reading it!

My only complaint is Tess' POV...In retrospect, I'm not sure why it was included, apart from it being another example of how secrets can destroy a marriage. But that's a small qualm. Overall, this was a really enjoyable read and one of my new favorites. I'll definitely be reading more of Liane Moriarty's work!

One of my favorite quotes, which showcases the smart and surprising humor: "All these years there had been a Tupperware container of bad language sitting off to the side in her head, and now she'd opened it and all those crisp, crunchy words were lovely and fresh, ready to be used."
