“The Husband's Secret”
I bought this on a whim whilst waiting for a plane and how glad I did. Brilliant novel.
A brilliant book I would recommend to anyone. I read it in less than 2 days and really wished I could have made it last longer to dwell on it more in the inbetween reading times. It's a book that you think is... More
I would definitely recommend reading the book, however I've expected a bit more.
