A thriller, full of family drama and suspense… this is a story that sucks you in and keeps you on the edge of tense uncertainty. The short prologue set my mind racing, the few lines on the following page, proceeded to knock my thoughts right off course. Lily and Ed are married, are they both keeping secrets? Part one is set fifteen years before the prologue and Lily tells her own story. As you settle in, you're suddenly spun away to Carla and her Mum, who live in the same block of flats, although not told in the first person, Carla’s story feels more intimate and exposed. This is a novel that explores guilt, blame and hidden thoughts and feelings. Jane Corry creates fully fleshed characters, Lily and Carla are particularly fascinating, there were times when I could have hugged them, and others when I wanted to shout and stomp as they made their decisions. Containing so many twists, it almost turns itself inside out, ‘My Husband’s Wife’ is an extremely entertaining read. ~ Liz Robinson
