    One thought on “My Husband's Wife”

    1. My bum hurts from sitting on the fence. I’ve been here a while. On one hand, this book was enticing and the plot was very well thought out. The characters went on long personal journeys and that made me feel satisfied. However, there was always something off. I can’t tell whether it was the writing style, which for me wasn’t something to write home about, or whether it was that none of the characters were relatable or likeable. The book is cut into two halves, beginning in the year two tho [...]

    2. This is a superb dark psychological thriller, how could it not be with the title it has! The story is populated with flawed characters and is told from the POV of Lily and Carla. Lily and Ed get married, she is starting as a criminal lawyer and he is an artist. Carla is a manipulative child, who along with her mother, is befriended by Lily. Ed comes to find success through his picture of Carla, 'The Italian Girl'. Lily has a client, Joe, who is convicted of murdering his girlfriend, a scenario w [...]

    3. 3.5 starsA new marriage shouldn’t be fueled by secrets and lies, but alas secrets and lies are the foundation for the marriage of Ed and Lily. Lily and Ed get married after a whirlwind romance. On their honeymoon, something happens that creates cracks in their new union. Lily pushes her qualms aside and focuses on her new job as a solicitor for which she has taken on the case of a convicted murderer whom she happens to form an attraction. Ed and Lily’s marriage continues to quickly diminish. [...]

    4. My Husband’s Wife by Jane Corry is a 2017 Pamela Dorman Books publication. The title of this book is certainly intriguing and led me to believe this novel would most likely be the kind twisty domestic thriller I can’t seem to get enough of. However, for me, at least, this book seems like it is one part family drama and one part domestic thriller. The story is centered around Lily and Ed, who marry after a brief courtship. When the honeymoon is over, Lily, who is a solicitor, gets a nice prom [...]

    5. This thriller begins with the news of a crime in the present day and then backtracks to fifteen years earlier, to unravel the events which led to murder… This is very much a book of two halves, beginning in London with Lily as a newly qualified solicitor. She is just back from her honeymoon, after a whirlwind romance, and sudden proposal, from artist Ed. Both are just starting out in their careers; with Ed working in advertising while he aims for success and Lily moving into criminal law. Lily [...]

    6. While thus seemed like an interesting plot it seemed to drag forever. Almost too many twists to the point that I wanted to pull my hair if one more came along. Every single character was completely damaged but not to the point that it made them disturbingly endearing, just quite irritating. I did like the insertion of a bit of a look into raising a child with Aspergers. Tho linked to the immediate story it still felt as if it was thrown in there half assed.

    7. “A great marriage is not when the 'perfect couple' comes together. It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences.”----Dave MeurerJane Corry, an English author, pens her debut psychological thriller, My Husband's Wife that narrates the story of a couple who goes through ups and downs in their newly marital life, through many years, but their past mistakes and their involvement in the life of a notorious and sly criminal and a sweet little girl, comes haunting back at them a [...]

    8. About: My Husband’s Wife is a thriller written by Jane Corry. It was recently published on 10/31/17 by Penguin Books, an imprint of Penguin Publishing Group, 400 pages. The genres are mystery, thriller, suspense, and fiction. This book is the author’s debut thriller.My Experience: I started reading My Husband’s Wife on 10/25/17 and finished it on 11/04/17. This book is an exciting and addicting read because it’s full of secrets, lies, and deceptions. If time was on my side, I would have [...]

    9. I thought this was really awful.The book is called "My Husband's Wife". What the plot is, I'm not really sure. The part where the story might actually come into play is page 460, but then it's over very fast. Before that the book covers around 13 years, very much in the vein of "this happened, then this happened, then this happened" with absolutely no emotional involvement for the reader. I stuck to it because I was waiting and waiting for something to happen that would make this void book make [...]

    10. The title to this book is what made me want to read it. Everyone was full of secrets, lies, and deception. Quite enjoyable!!

    11. I've been wanting to read this book ever since I first saw the cover on a shelf probably at least a year ago. Why I didn't pick it up, I have no clue. Eventually, I had to have it. I read a few reviews, saw that most people thought it was pretty good, and figured it was finally time. Long story short, I should've picked this one up ages ago. For some reason I love domestic thrillers. There's something so "close to home" about the relationship between the protagonist and antagonist and how they c [...]

    12. With a clever title, this dark psychological thriller is a perfect example of a new wave of the genre which has excited readers for the past couple of years (think Girl on a Train, Gone Girl etc). This is very much a story of two halves, told from the perspective of Lily, a newly qualified lawyer desperate to leave her mark on the world as she struggles to adapt to her young marriage to Ed, the self-confessed artistic genius. Meanwhile, across the hall, lives nine year old Carla and her mother - [...]

    13. 3.5 Stars!I won this in a giveaway. The plot was intriguing and the cover immediately caught my eye, but something just fell short. Perhaps it was that I found none of the characters to be likable or relatable? Or that the book felt like it tried to do too many things. I felt uncomfortable reading this and kept wanting to rush through to move on to other books, but, despite my complaints, this was an enjoyable and speedy read.

    14. Is it possible to write a readable novel that will keep you turning pages, yet about unlikable characters? This book shows that it is. It was strangely compelling reading despite the fact there is not one likable character in it. The story is told from two points of view. One is that of Lily newly married to Ed. The other is that of the child Carla and her Italian mother who live on the same floor of the apartment building. Each of these characters feels unloved at times. Their behaviour reflect [...]

    15. I have never read so much drivel in my life. I only persevered with this book as it was recommended to me by a friend I will choose my friends a bit more wisely in future.Psychological thriller? It was neither psychological or thrilling. This novel is merely an undramatic unfolding of events surrounding two main characters - Lily and Carla - and their relationships with others. Characters I neither cared about or related to at all. The "twisty" plot is based on the good old, and overused, found [...]

    16. Um thriller psicológico inteligente, chocante cheio de segredos e mentiras. Um livro que fala de complicações nas relações, amores impossíveis e traumas familiares. Adorei de início ao fim. Alerta-nos também para o facto de não podermos confiar em ninguém hoje em dia, às vezes as pessoas que nos são mais próximas são as que nos magoam mais.

    17. Gostei bastante deste livro e da forma como foi escrito. Manteve-me em suspense até ao fim e só não foi perfeito porque o final não me satisfez, foi cor de rosa demais para o tipo de livro que é. Mas leiam, vão gostar sem duvida

    18. 4 StarsNice debut fiction book. A mystery thriller that touches on murder, prison, a new attorney, a new marriage and discontent.

    22. My Husband's Wife Written by Jane CorryI think this is a unique novel of the thriller genre. It is told by the point's of view of both Lily and Carla.

Carla's mother asks Lily and Ed to babysit Carla while Carla's mother goes to work every Sunday. Carla's mother is really secretly meeting Larry with the shiny n [...]

    23. My Husband’s Wife by Jane Corry Rating: 5 starsPairing: Gin & Tonic I love dark and twisty psychological thrillers and My Husband’s Wife delivered on that promise. This book pulled me out of the worst reading slump I’ve been in for awhile. The story is full of the deeply flawed characters you would want to see in a psychological thriller. I mean we are talking serious moral instability and contradictions galore. It also tells the story from multiple POVs which I personally love. There [...]

    24. So I am struggling a bit to review this book. Didn't love it, but didn't hate it. In fact, the last 25% of the book, I really liked.

    25. I gave up after 140 pages. The child's voice was age inappropriate and the meandering storyline held no appeal. I will pass on to guest reviewer to see if it was just me

    26. 3.8«É engraçado o que aprendemos com os livros de ficção! O livro respira drama, incerteza, culpa, meias verdades. Diria eu, terreno fértil e prometedor onde qualquer escritor de thrillers gosta de trabalhar.Para mim o livro divide-se em 2 partes, o ponto que divide os dois planos é de fácil assunção. Digo dois planos porque é para mim discernível dois patamares diferentes de escrita.E a mim estas questões técnicas da escrita deliciam-me.Lily é uma personagem na qual facilmente no [...]
