I had never read anything by this author and have to say I really enjoyed her writing. She talks about the pain and suffering of daily life -- and how the smallest twists and turns can derail someone's path -- but with a lot of wit. I found myself laughing out loud many times, but also identifying with many of the characters' anguish.
The story has a few implausible coincidences and I guessed the "husband's secret" almost immediately, but neither thing affected my enjoyment. Like I said in the headline to this review, I was sorry to leave the characters behind when the book was over. I immediately downloaded another book by Moriarty ("The Hypnotist's Love Story") to see if it would be inhabited by similar people. So far, it's not as good as The Husband's Secret, but still a fun read.
I am 51 years old just an average guy who works in a factory,never read much until I found audio books, WOW !!!!
First off the performer was wonderful and the story was fascinating. I enjoyed the book from start to finish.Great ending but did not see it coming.
The narrator for this audiobook is brilliant. She has wonderful inflection, and keeps the narration very lively and captivating throughout the entire book.
I found this book quite entertaining and interesting. It often had me laughing out loud. Some of it was horrifying, but I guess life is like that, too. It got a bit slow for me at one point maybe about halfway through, but it picked back up. For the most part, throughout the book, I was eager to find out what happens next. I would describe this book as a humorous, suspenseful story about marriage, romance, and tragedy. Overall, I enjoyed it, and I will probably read more by this author.
Loved every minute of this! So glad I decided to listen to this. Caroline Lee was perfection and made the story come to life. I had a bit of trouble keeping all the characters straight, but after about 100 pages it hit easier. The epilogue was a masterpiece and I loved hearing about what might have been.
Once I started, I couldn't put it down! The ending left me satisfied and complete. I can send my love to the characters, and carry them in my heart!
I love to listen to well-written, well-researched books. Time is too valuable to waste on anything less, not to mention our credits and $$$!
This book was so well written, paced, and narrated I'm hesitant to
begin a different author/narrator. I was reluctant to put it down while I was listening, but comforted knowing it was waiting for me on my phone ;). I highly recommend this one. Wow. What a GREAT story!!!
I absolutely loved the writing style, the story has three main characters whose lives are simultaneously being told. At times there are simply parallels occurring that tie the three together and then there are points when their paths cross. The authors skill for character development allows the reader to understand the varying perspectives of the characters on an intimate level. There are a lot of characters which for the audible format (I listen during my commute) I was concerned about at first but this story quickly drew me in and I found it very easy to follow even with large spans of time between listening. I highly recommend this well written and entertaining book.
