The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty

Confession: I think I am tiring of Moriarty.  I liked this book less than I liked her others.

The Husband’s Secret tells the story of Cecilia who discovers a terrible thing about her husband, Rachel who’s still in mourning for her daughter who was murdered at age 15, decades before the book takes place, and Tessa whose husband and cousin claim they have fallen in love.

This book was not quite as plot-driven as her other books. In this book the mystery is told earlier in the book, rather than later. Instead of leading up to the revelation of the secret, the story is more about the effects of the secret on those involved, whether or not they know the secret.

I think I am going to give Moriarty a rest for a while.
