His secret could destroy them, but her truth is even harder to bear…

One year ago, my husband Jack left. I’ve longed for the moment he would walk through the door and tell me all he ever wanted was to be with me.

Now he’s back, but this isn’t the reunion I had dreamt of…

Jack has been in a hit and run accident. He doesn’t remember we aren’t together, has no clue about his other family, and no recollection of the phone call he made before the crash – I made a terrible mistake that I can’t put right. All I can do is get out.

Jack is different to the man that walked out and I’m certain he’s hiding something too.

But I finally have my husband by my side, and with Jack suffering from amnesia, surely the easiest thing would be to stay quiet…

But can you really trust a man who simply vanished from your life? And should he even trust me?

My Husband’s Secret Review

Jack has been in an accident when his wife Caitlin picks him up from hospital. The problem is that they split up a year ago and clearly Jack has no idea from the way that he’s acting. His memory of the last year has been entirely wiped, but Caitlin doesn’t say anything at all just making the most of the fact that he still seems to love her.

However, it appears that there’s more to this all than meets the eye. Caitlin begins getting anonymous phone calls and there’s the suggestion that there had been some violence in their time apart. What is Jack hiding and is his amnesia a lie to cover up a terrible crime?

My Husband’s Secret was so readable and addictive, I read it in two chunks as I couldn’t put it down!

I was suspicious of Jack straight away and just had to keep on reading to find out what the characters were hiding!

There is plenty of drama and intrigue which kept me interested and this increased as the story progressed.

I couldn’t decide where my allegiance lay, whether with Caitlin or Lydia and the ending was great and left me satisfied.

A superb thriller.
