The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty

I love stories with multiple unrelated people whose stories are actually quite intertwined. That's why I liked this book so much.

Cecelia is the perfect, organized, Tupperware-selling mom. Then, she finds a letter written from her husband to be opened upon his death. Ut-oh. And then there's Tess who finds out that her husband is in love with her cousin. Yuck. She picks up and leaves with her son to go back to her hometown. Finally, there's Rachel whose teenage daughter was found murdered years ago and she's still grieving. All these ladies are connected but they don't know it.

There are lots of twists to this book which made it a page-turner. The Epilogue was actually my most favorite part of the book. I liked this story so much because it plays around with the "what ifs" in life.

Don't be fooled by the "chic-lit" look of this book. It contains deeper themes like secrets, fidelity, and paying for mistakes.

Highly recommended! =D

Hi Elaine. You mention that you like interrelated stories. If you haven't already read Olive Kitteredge by Elizbeth Strout, you might like that book. I loved it. I'm going to check out The Husband's Secret. -- Michal
