LoveReading Expert Review of My Husband's Wife

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

  • Stephanie Blakey - 'This is one of the most gripping books I have read so far in 2016! Brilliant from start to finish, packed full of suspense, twists and great characterisation.'
  • Doreen McKeown - 'This is a fascinating story, which starts out as a relationship drama, but gradually develops into something much darker, which became a real page turner for me.'
  • Nicola Lowes - 'I could not put this book down. It gripped me from start to finish...I would definitely recommend this.'
  • Sarah Harper - 'A suspenseful and engaging read with twists and turns aplenty.'
  • Judith Waring - 'gripping with its turns, twists and lies that even by the end were still having to be kept hidden.'
  • Maureen Gourlay - 'Lily is a newly married, newly qualified Solicitor, taking on her first criminal case. And that's when everything starts to go "rivetingly" wrong. A brilliant read full of unexpected twists.'
  • Emily Wright - 'My Husband’s Wife is suffused with tension and unease, but sadly lacking in any heart and soul. In this dark and twisty world, no one is quite what they seem and motives are wrapped in layers of secrets.'
  • Kathy Howell - 'This is a very good read which has several threads running through it which all come together to a very satisfying finish.'
  • Phylippa Smithson - 'Very clever title but somewhat disappointing story...worth persevering to understand where the story links past with present.'
  • Alison Bisping - 'The suspense is high, the intrigue great and the story is full of twists and turns as throughout the story, the characters cross paths over and over again.'
  • Mary Gibson - 'It is an absorbing novel, though a little overlong but I enjoyed the twists and turns of the story and it is a satisfying read.'
  • Sharon Wood - 'it was interesting enough to keep me going to the end and I can imagine fans of this type of book will enjoy it.  A holiday read.'
  • Paula Dennan - 'My Husband’s Wife is a taut psychological thriller. Jane Corry deftly intertwines the lives of complex characters leaving the reader in no doubt that good people sometimes do bad things.'
  • Edel Waugh - 'Crime, love, loss, and violence surround the story and these characters are people you really want to know...this made for a very fun reading marathon in my house. I loved it!'
  • Cathy Small - 'A book of truth, love and family relationships. Sometimes the ties to family are stronger than our own sense of mind.'
  • Suzanne Beney - 'A thriller where you don't know which characters to love and which to hate. It's a little farfetched for my kind of reality, but certainly has you turning the pages.'
  • Nicola Cooper - 'A must read for thriller lovers.'
  • Tracey Copeland - 'I did find the first few chapters slow going however had to read on to discover what happened at the BBQ.'
