______________

Recently, Nora has started to feel that 'having it all' comes with a price, one her husband doesn't seem to be paying quite so heavily. She loves Hayden, but why is it that, however hard men work, their wives always seem to work that little bit harder?

When their house-hunting takes them to an affluent suburban neighbourhood, Nora's eyes are opened to a new world. Here, the wives don't make all the sacrifices. Here, the husbands can remember the kids' schedules, and iron and notice when the house needs dusting.

But when she becomes involved in a wrongful death case involving one of the local residents, Nora begins to suspect that there's a dark secret at the heart of this perfect world.

One that some will kill to protect . . .

MEDIA REVIEWS
Chandler Baker, queen of the feminist thriller, has delivered once again! The Husbands is a poignant exploration of what it would take for women to have it all ... and it's as sobering as you might imagine. My head is still spinning. I can already hear the book club discussions! -- Sally Hepworth
Every weary wife needs to read this book. You'll belly laugh in recognition, sob in recognition - but ultimately, The Husbands may just save your marriage -- Celia Walden
Incredible. . . The Husbands expresses a truth that needed to be articulated, that will resonate with every woman I know. It made me angry in the best way. -- Jessica Moor
Every once in a while there's a book that stays with you - whether the subject resonates, makes you think or quite simply shocks. The Husbands does all that, and more. * Woman & Home *
Soon to become a film, this clever novel is well worth a read and perfect for book clubs * Belfast Telegraph *
An utterly addictive page-turner * Daily Mail *
The deviously dark twists keep the reader hooked until the shocking climax * Candis *
This gender-swapping Stepford Wives story is as creepy as it is delicious * Good Housekeeping *

“Fantastic!”

I absolutely loved this!

Billed as a modern twist on the Stepford Wives, this is by turns hilarious and rage inducing, and there's a steady increase of suspense as the plot deepens. I don't want to go into... More

“A domestic noir with a clever twist”

My thanks to Little, Brown Book Group/Sphere for an eARC via NetGalley, of ‘The Husbands’ by Chandler Baker in exchange for an honest review.
