On the evening of their wedding anniversary, Ali and Matthew are involved in a fatal car accident.

Grief-stricken, Ali can’t bring herself to believe that her beloved Matthew is gone…

The smell of his aftershave lingers in their bedroom. His voice still rings out on their answerphone. She sees his face in the eyes of strangers.

But as the months pass, and her family and friends rally round, Ali starts to uncover secrets that Matthew kept from her.

Did she really know her husband as well as she thought she did? And why can’t she shake the feeling that somehow, somewhere, he is still alive?

I received an advanced reader’s copy in exchange for an honest review

I loved this one. Very fast paced, had me turning pages as I tore through it – I had to see how it would end. The characters were well rounded and the narrative felt believable. Gave me chills. Solid five

This book was really, really good. The characters were well rounded and believable and the plot was surprising all the way through. I read this in one sitting because I was so intrigued and invested that I had to find out what happened.

4.5 stars…I had to take off half a star just because Ali annoyed me so much at times. She seemed willfully ignorant of her husband’s true character and it drove me crazy.

But…this is a really good, well written book. Look for My Husband’s Secrets by Louise Sharland August 9, 2022. Thanks to NetGalley and Harper360.

I LOVED this book!

First, the story line was believable and not too far fetched like most. I could not wait to find out where Matthew was and what happened to him. There were many twists and turns along the way, making the reading extremely enjoyable!

This story was not only entertaining but definitely pulled on your heart strings as well. The writing was superb and extremely easy to follow. I will definitely seek out more books by this author! 10/10 recommend!

Good book! This book had light suspense, intrigue, and quite a few crazy twists! The storyline was interesting and had a bit of a who done it! I definitely enjoyed reading this book but it wasn't one of my top favorites?! I would recommend reading it as it was well worth reading, but just ok for me! Thank you Netgalley and the publisher for sharing this book with me!

This is a new-to-me author, and I enjoyed the storyline. Secrets, lies, betrayal, healing, hope, survival, and more. Ali was a bit annoying at times but I liked the fact that when she finally got her act together, she was a strong woman fighting for her daughter, her business, and her future.

I figured out early on who the bad guy was but not exactly why.

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I loved this book , it was very fast paced and an easy read! It hooked me in the first sentence! I had to keep reading even when i wasnt supose to be ! I liked Ali's character and was wanting to know what happend so early on

I was hooked from the very first scene in this book when Ali and Matthew's speeding car slides off the mud-slicked road into the river below. Though Ali's injuries are serious, leaving her with a limp, she does not know what happened to Matthew. He is presumed dead, but Ali does not believe it and sets out to find him, with the help of their friend Dane. Or is a friend? And what were she and Matthew arguing about when their car crashed.? So many mysteries and threads lead to a truly unforeseen ending. This is a fast-paced mystery that will keep you turning the pages until you find out what happened--and you will not see it coming.

Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for the advance copy of this title to read and review.

I did like this book, it has an engaging story and a strong ending- without the shocking twists that seem to be so popular these days. Ali is in an accident that costs her husband his life, or so she believes. But things keep coming up that make her question what really happened that night. As things unfold contradictory messages come up making her question what she believes.
As it turns out, many are keeping all sorts of secrets that are revealed that show her that some of what she did believe was true, and other was not.
Pretty quickly paced and fun to read, even if people you believe in turn out to be not so good afterall.

a really good read with lots of twists and turns. It holds your attention as you are wondering what happens next.

my husband's secrets is a good mystery with a storyline that goes from bad to worse.
The tenacity of the lead character is inspiring. It is good to see a strong female lead withstand the nightmare that her life becomes.
I read this book in a day at the beach. A good summer read in that it is engrossing.

Is the man you married everything he seems to be or are dark secrets lurking in the background? That is the question throughout this story. I think we'd all like to think we know our significant others inside and out, but can we ever truly know someone as deeply as we'd like?

After the death of her first husband, Rory, Ali is left alone with her daughter, Emma and the business they created together. After a few years her friends, Liz and Dane introduce her to Matthew, and they fall in love quickly. Fast forward a few years and they are just finishing celebrating their third wedding anniversary at a party with friends. In the parking lot, they get into an argument and as they're driving home, Matthew is speeding and he loses control of the car, plunging them in to the river below. Ali is able to escape with the help of her friends, but the car and Matthew are swept away. Matthews body is never recovered, and Ali is left a widow for a second time. What happens in the months after their terrible accident, is a complicated web of lies, deceit and betrayal. Is Matthew still alive and if he is, just what has he been hiding all these years?

This is the first book I have read by this author. The story kept me on the edge of my seat and is a definite page turner. I found myself yelling at her for not doing things like changing her locks or getting a security system in her home. My heart would be thumping as I was quickly turning the page to see what she was about to uncover and I for one, never saw the twists coming. I really enjoyed this story and will be looking for more from this author, I received this book for free from NetGalley for an honest review.

What a tragedy to happen on their wedding anniversary. Ali and Matthew are involved in a terrible auto accident. Ali is saved, but Matthew is nowhere to be found - presumed drowned. Ali is mourning his death, but believes he still could be alive. Then discrepancies appear in the accounts, money unaccounted for and suspicions from the employees. Could Matthew have some secret agenda. Ali starts to learn more about her husband's secrets.
I thank the author, publisher and Netgalley for my ARC in exchange for my honest review.

This book started slow for me but once it got going I couldn't put it down!! Didn't particularly love any of the characters but that didn't take the suspense away.

Was this review helpful?

This book starts with Ali & Matthew just coming from their third anniversary celebration, and having a very heated argument in the car. There is a torrential downpour and the car swerves off of the road into the river beyond. Ali is saved, but she has severe injuries, and cries for someone to save Matthew. The rescuers are unable to find Matthew and he is presumed dead.
Ali refuses to believe Matthew is dead. She assists the help of her best friend Liz's husband Dane to help her to find Matthew. Her daughter, Emma worries about her mom, but she does all she can to help keep her mom's real estate development company running while she is recovering.
Along the way, Ali discovers secrets that devastate her. She wonders who is lying to her. Is Matthew still alive, but hiding? She doesn't know who to trust. She feels betrayed by those closest to her. Ali discovers many things that threaten to tear her family and friends apart.
This book was a fast read for me. Some of the twists were predictable, however I couldn't stop reading. I had to find out if what I thought was the outcome would be the truth. This book doesn't have the action some of us are used to in a thriller, but it keeps your interest. If you enjoy domestic thrillers I think you will enjoy this book. This book was given to me by Net Galley for an honest review.

This is the first book I have read by Louise Sharland. The story kept me on the edge of my seat and is a definite page turner. It makes you wonder if you really know your significant other.
Must read for all domestic thriller fans.

What really happened the night of their wedding anniversary? Ali survives a horrific car crash to discover her husband Matthew is missing and presumed dead. My Husband’s Secrets is a psychological thriller filled with secrets, lies, and betrayals.

As Ari recovers from the tragic accident, the circumstances surrounding her husband’s past slowly unravel. Her company and relationships with friends and family are at stake. Nothing is as it seems, and Ali must determine who’s telling the truth.

Author Louise Sharland creates a twisty plot with great dialog and questionable characters who don’t always have Ali’s interests at heart. I thank NetGalley for letting me read and review My Husband’s Secrets. #NetGalley #MyHusband’sSecrets #thriller

You know you've read a lot of books when you feel like you've read this before. I did enjoy it because I wanted to know what would become of the characters and what secrets would be revealed. Ali and Matthew are involved in a fatal car crash after a night of drinking. Ali was seriously injured and Matthew's body cannot be found. When odd things begin to disappear around the house, she is convinced he is alive. She visualizes him and senses his presence in everyone she meets on the streets.

Auditors detect Ali's company that she had invested her life into has been tampered with. Secrets are revealed leaving a painful trail of confessions from friends and even her own daughter. Her husband was not who she thought. I enjoyed her hunt for evidence and sleuthing that bumped it up to a 3.5. The writing was great and kept me involved until the end. Although the ending was a surprise when I thought it would go a different route.
Thank you NetGalley and Harper 360 for this ARC in exchange for my honest review.
