The Husband's Secrets : Book Review

Ever since I've finished reading Big Little Lies, I was totally hook with Liane Moriarty and I wanted to read more of her book. Naturally The Husband's Secret is next on my lists since I saw a few Booktuber talked about it last year. I download the ebook and the audiobook and I listen to it on my way to work.

The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty

What is this book about?
At the heart of The Husband’s Secret is a letter that is not meant to be read... 

My darling Cecilia, If you’re reading this, then I’ve died... 

Imagine your husband wrote you a letter, to be opened after his death. Imagine, too, that the letter contains his deepest, darkest secret—something with the potential to destroy not only the life you have built together, but the lives of others as well. And then imagine that you stumble across that letter while your husband is still very much alive… Cecilia Fitzpatrick has achieved it all—she’s an incredibly successful businesswoman, a pillar of her small community, a devoted wife and mother. Her life is as orderly and spotless as her home. But that letter is about to change everything—and not just for her. There are other women who barely know Cecilia—or each other—but they, too, are about to feel the earth-shattering repercussions of her husband’s secret. " excerpt from

What do I think about the book?
- The story in this book also took place in Australia but the reference to the Berlin wall keep coming up. It's part of world history that impact many people in so many ways. By now I have become familiar with Australian places that makes me want to visit this country one day.
- I really like Cecilia character. I definitely do not want to be in her position. I am not sure if I can handle that kind of secret and the responsibility that comes with it. Choosing between her family and justice is not an easy thing to do.
- I can totally relate to Tess. Her husband betrayal really crushed her and when she came running back to her mother and her ex boy friend is totally understandable. I kinda secretly wanting her to end up with her ex.
- I definitely do not want to be in Rachel shoes. You can never really recover from the shocked of losing a child especially when she was murder and it was unsolved.
- Liane told the story beautifully and she successfully make me believe in these characters. She makes me thinks about life in general, the way we make a decisions. Would we make the same decision if we have all the information, if we have a glimpse of what the future holds? 

I highly recommend this book to anybody who loves chic lit and mystery
