Like The House of Mirth, this book was sent to me by Beth, and I spent forever getting around to reading it! The Husband's Secret follows the lives of different women whose lives intertwine in ways that become increasingly clear as their stories develop and close towards each other. If entwined, character-based stories are your thing, I completely recommend JK Rowling's The Casual Vacancy. When I started hearing more and more good things about it, I knew I had to put it on the top of my pile.
All stories revolve around a letter found by Cecilia, written by her husband only to be opened in the event of his death. It's pretty much the epitome of a summer beach read: Nothing challenging, nothing confusing. This may be influenced by the fact that, as a rule, I'm not interested in what you may call "light women's reading".


It's a lot more complex than The Husband's Secret but also more developed and a lot less predictable! Eventually curiosity gets the better of her and she reads the letter to discover information that changes her life, and the lives of the other women, forever.
I knew the secret within about 15 pages and, although I thought it couldn't possibly be that obvious, it turns out it was.
I'd still encourage people to give it a go, though, as it seems very divisive- some people were not impressed while others absolutely loved it.
The main women are irritating: Cecilia spends far too much time fussing, simpering and generally being a do-gooder and Tess needs to stop fat-shaming her beautiful, witty cousin. It was entertaining enough and I became impatient to find out how the stories would come together even though, as I said, I didn't expect my prediction to be completely accurate.
I will also say that Moriarty's use of short sentences to build up tension in the climax of the novel is well developed and certainly creates suspense.


I am a big, big fan of books with loads of characters that all come together in the end, I love seeing how they all interlink and I really enjoyed this aspect of the book. I found this predictable but I bet there are books that left me clueless where you would have got it. I see in a comment above Before I Go To Sleep was mentioned, I've read that and it was pretty cracking!
Incredible books, with really well developed characters, and elements of feminism and how shit our current society and attitudes are!
