'What would you do if you found a letter in the attic, addressed to you, from your husband - to be opened in the event of his death? Another masterclass from the author of Big Little Lies' GRAZIA

_______________

Mother of three and wife of John-Paul, Cecilia discovers an old envelope in the attic. Written in her husband's hand, it says: to be opened only in the event of my death.

Curious, she opens it - and time stops.

John-Paul's letter confesses to a terrible mistake which, if revealed, would wreck their family as well as the lives of others.

Cecilia wants to do the right thing, but right for who?

If she protects her family by staying silent, the truth will worm through her heart. But if she reveals her husband's secret, she will hurt those she loves most . . .

What would you do if you found a letter in the attic, addressed to you, from your husband - to be opened in the event of his death? Another masterclass from the author of Big Little Lies * Grazia *
Every single one of her books is a great read * E! Online *
The Husband's Secret is a staggeringly brilliant novel. It is literally unputdownable -- Sophie Hannah
The story is cleverly plotted, full of suspense and so well-written that it pulls you in from the first page * Sunday Mirror *
If you like Jodi Picoult, you'll love this addictive new book * Essentials *
Dark and compelling, this is a must read * Sun *
The writing is beautiful: sometimes funny, sometimes sad but always compelling * Good Housekeeping *
This is such a clever idea. This is powerful, moving and gripping stuff * Star Magazine *
It's a tense, page-turning story which gradually draws everyone together in a devastating climax.

The book's finely-wrought tension holds up until the final page * The Telegraph *
Fresh, very funny and entertaining, but also intelligent and unsentimental * Marian Keyes on Three Wishes *

A bittersweet tale by a gifted writer * Women's Weekly on What Alice Forgot *
