This was great! It being on the longer side, I wasn’t sure if this novel would keep my attention - but I was hooked from start to finish!
There are two POVs. That of Lily, an insecure 20 something married to a man who proposed on the second date. Sh ...more
A 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.
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 promotio ...more
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 ...more
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.
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.
Jane 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 ag ...more
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 plowed t ...more
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 ...more
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, ...more
I won this in a Goodreads 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.
Lily meets Ed at a party. She is an up and coming Lawyer and he is an inspiring artist.
In the same building as Lily and Ed live is Carla and Francesca. Carla was just 9 years old when they met her.
Francesca was disowned by her family when she discovers she was pregnant and the Father was a married man.
Soon the cracks start to appear in Lily and Ed's marriage and Lily now regrets getting married.
Another fantasti ...more
Nice debut fiction book. A mystery thriller that touches on murder, prison, a new attorney, a new marriage and discontent. The book changes midway through to a later date in time, once one of the young characters has grown into an adult.
Lily and Ed are married. But should they be? Lily has a number of secrets, that she has not shared with Ed. Ed is also sitting on a secret. Ed is temperamental and starts to be very controlling. Lily, being a young attorney, is working later and later on ...more

I think this is a unique novel of the thriller genre. It is told by the point's of view of both Lily and Carla. Lily and Ed are a married couple who sometimes babysit a young manipulative Carla who is known as the Italian girl. Carla and her mother live in the same apartment complex as Lily and Ed. 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 ...more
