Kimberly Belle has been on my radar for a while now. So when her latest novel, My Darling Husband, came across my dashboard, I was too tempted to pass it up! The same author wrote Dear Wife and The Marriage Lie, which I have heard great things about.

They say that looks can be deceiving, and Jade is about to find out just how true that statement is. By all appearances, she and her husband have a perfect life – two beautiful kids, a lovely house, and a budding business. But all it takes is one horrible moment for that to all come crumbling down.

When a home invader targets her family, Jade’s eyes are opened to the secrets her husband has been hiding all of these years. And it turns out that the assault was less than random, as the home invader also knew of these secrets.

“People are more open to a proposition if they’re part of the solution.”

My Darling Husband was a fast-paced and chilling read – and that was before I saw Kimberly Belle’s note on the book. According to her, My Darling Husband is “a story rooted in truth.” Did anyone else get chills there, or is it just me?

I think it’s safe to say that this book made me incredibly tense. If there was an award for freaking me out, I would grant it to My Darling Husband. Seriously, I was so anxious for the characters within this book.

A lot is going on in this book, and I think that’s part of the reason why it was so dang tense. Every minute or two, there was something else for my anxiety to latch onto. That probably wasn’t too great for my mental health, but it did make for a thrilling experience. I’ll give you that much!

Thanks to Park Row and #NetGalley for making this book available for review. All opinions expressed are my own.
