My Darling Husband by Kimberly Belle, 4 Stars

Everyone is about to know what her husband isn’t telling her…

Jade and Cam Lasky are by all accounts a happily married couple with two adorable kids, a spacious home and a rapidly growing restaurant business. But their world is tipped upside down when Jade is confronted by a masked home invader. As Cam scrambles to gather the ransom money, Jade starts to wonder if they’re as financially secure as their lifestyle suggests, and what other secrets her husband is keeping from her.

Cam may be a good father, a celebrity chef and a darling husband, but there’s another side he’s kept hidden from Jade that has put their family in danger. Unbeknownst to Cam and Jade, the home invader has been watching them and is about to turn their family secrets into a public scandal.

With riveting twists and a breakneck pace, My Darling Husband is an utterly compelling thriller that once again showcases Kimberly Belle’s exceptional talent for domestic suspense.

Advance Praise for My Darling Husband

“In the kind of twisty page-turner that readers know they can rely on Belle to deliver, a mother fights for the lives of her children while trying to unravel her husband’s secret life. Riveting suspense, truly surprising revelations, and silky smooth writing make this one unmissable!”  — Joshilyn Jackson, New York Times bestselling author of Mother May I

“This novel should come with two warnings: a) clear your schedule because once you start you can’t stop, and b) hold on tight because you’re in for one hell of a ride. Gripping, intense and utterly bingeworthy, MY DARLING HUSBAND had me holding my breath more times than I can count. Fabulously constructed, brilliantly layered and secretive characters, plus heroines you’ll cheer for, Belle once again proves she’s a true master of domestic suspense. Do yourself a favor and pick this book up now!” — Hannah Mary McKinnon, bestselling author of Sister Dear and You Will Remember Me

My Review:

Imagine coming home from picking your child up from an activity to a masked man waiting for you in your garage. He has a gun, and he’s threatening violence against not just you, but also your children. It’s terrifying! And just as terrifying? The fact that as the course of the day unfolds, Jade will realize she knows absolutely nothing about her husband.

My Darling Husband takes place during just one day. But of course, with many things, the events of the past years (not months) all come to a head in that one day. I’m always a little hesitant to pickup a book that takes place in such a small time-frame, but Belle does an excellent job of interweaving the present with the past. Everything that brought Jade and Cam to this crucial moment is also inter-cut with hints here and there as to who the masked intruder is.

My Darling Husband is an amazing read. I don’t normally ever stay up late to finish a book. I’m just usually too tired. I was up until midnight on a weeknight finishing this one, which may sound lame, but is super late for me! Check this one out, you won’t be disappointed. Special thanks to Netgalley and Harlequin for an advanced readers copy in exchange for my honest review. This one is out now. Get your copy!
