Book Cover First Impressions:
The image didn’t do much for me, but I knew with the title immediately that this was a romance novel. The Accidental Husband seemed more of a tale of how they met and fell in love, perhaps in a humourous way. I was intrigued and looking forward to reading this.
About this book:
Jane Green’s “The Accidental Husband” is a powerful story about two women connected by an earth-shattering secret. Maggie and Sylvie are perfect strangers: two very different women, living very different lives on opposite coasts. But they share more in common than they could ever imagine. Both women have beautiful children on the verge of flying the nest, the home they worked hard to build and always longed for, and a handsome and devoted husband they can’t believe belongs to them. Both women think their lives are seamlessly secure, but they couldn’t be more wrong…For each is about to discover a secret that will shake their world to the very core, throwing into doubt everything they ever thought they knew, and bringing Maggie and Sylvie together in the most unexpected way.
An interesting read. Quite shocking giving open-mouth moments. Green writes in viewpoints of specific main characters, to get an inside view on their thoughts and emotions. Starting with Sylvie, a Mum who is creative and carefree, then moving on to her daughter, Eve who is a normal beautiful teenager that lets her weight-loss stumble way out of control into a heartbreaking eating disorder.
After I read the first narrative chapter to introduce the story and the characters, I felt the story was being told rather then being read. Thankfully, once I continued reading I absolutely could not take my eyes away from the book. The story just grew and grew, the doubts about Sylvie’s relationship in my mind grew, as her own doubts grew and then whenever new character’s were introduced I suspected the worst and didn’t trust any of them until they were ruled out of deception. This may not make much sense if you haven’t read the book but that’s because the biggest secret is something I would love for you to discover on your own when you read it. Let’s just say this: The Accidental Husband was shocking, breath-taking, well-written and well-mastered and gripping.
Was their romance? You bet.
Was their scandal? Absolutely.
Will you enjoy the read? Yes!
