Publisher's Summary

A suspenseful, absorbing novel that examines the complexities of friendship, It’s Always the Husband by Michele Campbell will keep listeners guessing right up to its shocking conclusion.

“A riveting tale of love, hate, and murder.” (Us Weekly)

“A page-turning whodunit that will speak to anyone who’s ever had a frenemy.” (Ruth Ware, best-selling author of The Woman in Cabin Ten)

“Fans of Gillian Flynn, meet your next obsession.” (BuzzFeed)

Meet Kate, Aubrey, and Jenny.

They first met as college roommates and soon became inseparable, despite their many differences. Kate was beautiful, wild, wealthy, and damaged. Aubrey came from the wrong side of the tracks, and wanted more than anything to distance herself from her past. Jenny was brilliant, ambitious, and determined to win big at all costs. As an unlikely alliance formed, Kate, Aubrey, and Jenny swore they would always be friends.

Twenty years later, the three women - all married, and deemed successful by any measure - are together again. But one of them is standing at the edge of a bridge…and someone is urging her to jump. How did it come to this? Who is to blame? Is it true that it’s always the husband who commits the worst crimes against his wife - or is someone else behind a sinister plot to tear these three women apart?

Couldn't make myself care

All of the characters were one-dimensional and incredibly unlikeable. I couldn't make myself care what happened to any of them. Predictable ending.

Couldn't finish

I made it less than halfway through this book. The three main characters are such awful/weak/hateful women that I was hoping that all three would do me a favor and jump off the bridge. Since it didn't appear that this was likely, I gave up. Three hours I will never get back.

I’ve never listened to a book before where I hated every single character. Really depressing

Sometimes It's The Writer

It's Always The Husband started out okay. Three college girls meet and become roommates during their first year of self discovery. Then, we switch to present tense where the three roommates are all grown up and still best friends. We get a little taste of the grown up girls, and then we are swallowed with boring, wordy drivel about every single thing that they said and did in their first semester at college which is supposed to lead up to something terrible that happened. It took HOURS to get to the 'terrible thing that happened' and tons of unnecessary characters and wayyy too many silly sub plots... And- the title makes no sense.

Urgh. The characters are idiots and I hated all three main girls. This plot is all over the place and it's nonsensical and just plain stupid. 'It's Always The Husband' is supposed to be caviar for the palette, but it's actually badly cooked ramen noodles not even fit for girls in high school. What a waste of a credit.

Constant Guessing Game!

This was a great story made better if you will by the narrator January LaVoy. This novel is one of the best, I've read/listened to in a long time.

The characters and story all very well written. And anyone who've spent time on a college campus, or reminiscing about their college days can relate to college life and all that goes along with it for some crowds.

But, this story of troubled relationships and people who seem to be destined to be together; is brilliant.

Kate, Jenny, and Aubrey are an unlikely trio. They find themselves navigating college life and more.
As you will find there is a bit of a mystery and you'll go on this journey with the "Triple Whips" to solve it.

A constant guessing game and a complete mystery until the last few seconds.

Terrible!

I purchased this book because the description sounded like an interesting psychological story. The characters were unlikeable and the plot was all over the place.

Can NOT finish !

This is the screechiest, whiniest, most immature book I have ever attempted to listen to. I made it half way, but I just can't finish! I would think it was a book for teenagers if the subject matter wasn't all about sex, drugs, and suicide... but it's definitely not a book for adults, unless whiny teenage drama is your thing. This boom is truly awful , and a waste of a credit for sure.

Very weak plot

The storyline is extremely predictable and cliche. The characters don’t really make a lot of sense together, it’s very awkward. It was a very disappointing listen.

LOVE the Narrator

The book was great, but enhanced by the narrator. Her voice quality suited all the characters that she read. Very believable.
