Book Review: The Husband's Secret

Monday, June 29, 2015

Author: Liane Moriarty

Summary from Goodreads:

A letter changes everything. A letter that was never meant to be read until her husband’s death, but it is…and he is still alive. Cecilia’s life changes when this happens. The story discusses how she learns about the secret, the aftermath, and how it all comes together.
Personal Review:
About a month ago, I read Big Little Lies by the author Liane Moriarty. I enjoyed that book enough to pick up another one by her. Similar to the first, the story was one that engages you. It makes you want to keep reading and find out what the secret is! Once you do, it is interesting to see how the story plays out. In an effort to not give away any spoilers, I will keep my thoughts high level.


A good book, worth the read!

Happy Reading!

Book Review: The Guest Cottage

Author: Nancy Thayer

Summary from Goodreads: This is the story of Sophie and an unexpected summer at a Guest Cottage in Nantucket. The summer starts off on a negative note, but it is not too long before a new family, a potential new love interest, and a new story emerges.

Disclaimer: I was awarded a copy of this book from Christina @ Confessions of a Book Addict. While I did not pay for the book, the opinions are strictly my own.

Personal Review:

I liked this book, but it was not what I expected it to be. It has been awhile since I read a Nancy Thayer book and I usually enjoy them. While I did enjoy this one, it seemed a little too predictable for me. While I don’t mind that, I was hoping for a twist or something. That said, it was a quick interesting read. I found there to be good character development of Sophie.

Happy Reading!

Book Review: Murder, DC

Author: Neely Tucker

Summary from Goodreads: An intellectual thriller with murder mystery twist, this book follows the details related to the murder of Billy Ellison, a prominent DC individual. When the police decide they do not have any leads, the book follows Sully Carter’s investigation as he keeps digging to get the truth of what happened.

Disclaimer: I was awarded this book through a giveaway on Good Reads. While I did not pay for the book, the opinions are strictly my own.

Personal Review:
This book was not my typical read. I don’t read a lot of mystery thrillers. However, I am trying to expand what I am exposed to, so I was happy to win this book. I really enjoyed that this book was set in the DC area, as this is the area I reside. I enjoyed reading about the different places and created a map in my head of the locations they visited.

I can tell that Sully’s character has some top-notch investigative skills. It was interesting to see how determined his next steps and how the story all played out. I thought it was a good read that I would have probably not tried out otherwise. Thanks for giving me the chance to try it!   

Happy Reading!
