Today I am reviewing on its publication day The Other Husband by Kathryn Croft, published by Canelo.
One dinner party will destroy everything.
The night that throws a wrecking ball into Abby’s life starts out perfectly at first. There’s still a hint of summer sun in the purple-streaked sky. Abby and her best friend, Sienna, look on fondly as their two husbands laugh under the garden gazebo. None of them know it’s the last time they will be together again.
What starts out as just a little fun, has devastating consequences for the couples. Alone with Sienna’s husband, Greg, Abby finds him unexpectedly charming. And something happens that night that neither she nor Greg can take back.
Abby is desperate to tell her husband and Sienna the truth, but can’t risk Greg sharing what he knows about her. She has no choice but to keep quiet. Then Greg suddenly disappears.
Is her best friend’s husband simply running from his secrets? Or has someone decided they can’t risk that he may share theirs?
The most gripping and twisty psychological thriller you’ll read this year from #1 bestseller Kathryn Croft. Perfect for readers who loved Gone Girl or The Girl on the Train.
“One dinner party…One fatal mistake…”
The intriguing premise had me drawn to this book like a moth to a flame, rubbing my hands together with glee for what I hoped was going to be a very wicked read. How could it not be when best friends Sienna and Abby innocently swap husbands for a night to see how the other lives. I mean what could possibly go wrong with that…
This is a very twisty and thrilling ride and it had me hanging off its every word. What was meant to be a night of fun, opens up one big massive can of worms and has dire consequences for all. Buried secret’s rise to the surface and it is a great lesson on how appearances can be deceiving and how the grass is not always greener on the other side.
Kathryn Croft is a new author to me and The Other Husband has been a great introduction to her work and I am happy to say I was given exactly what I hoped for. This is one very wicked read!
