A Perfect Husband
What would it take for you to give up on the man you love, the man you thought was the perfect husband - until you discovered just how much he was hiding from you?
Lily and Freddy have a wonderful relationship: passionate and fun. Freddy taught her to love again after the death of her father. But then Freddy becomes tense, snappy and distracted. Is he having an affair?...more
I really enjoyed this book, for me Hilary Boyd is brilliant at writing books of this genre and I wasn't disappointed with this one. I loved the storyline and the characters were great and really fitted well together, the pace of the book was great and I think the ending really fitted well with the storyline overall. I'd definitely recommend the book and gave it a four star rating. ...more
My next NetGalley read.
This starts out slow and grows into a very bleak tale of the horror of what life leaves the families of a gambler. The characters are not very likeable but it's an intriguing story. Seems to go on a bit too long before the secret of Freddy's betrayal is out in the open.
A word used a few times is discombobulated. I know what it means but for me destroys the little flow this has.
Not getting a connection with the characters as they feel one dimensional and not very likeable ...more
I've been a big fan of Hilary's for quite some time now. I have absolutely loved her previous books. But I just a little disappointed by this book. It just didn't feel like it went anywhere and it wasn't as good as her other books which is a shame really. ...more

Lily is married to her second husband Freddy, she thinks everything is fine except Freddy is hiding a secret, he gambles... A lot. I enjoyed the start of the book with Freddy sneaking around, at the casinos however when the truth started coming out I started to lose any kind of care I had to all characters involved. This may just be me as there's some good reviews ...more
Wow! I loved this book. Such a beautiful story that I just couldn't put down! all through this book I couldn't work out how it was going to end... which I loved!
The best bit for me was that this wasn't your average run of the mill love story, it had real depth and the characters felt very real. Sometimes love does hurt and I think this book captures the raw pain of 'hearta ...more
I have read and greatly enjoyed other books by the same author, but found this one disappointing. The main problem for me was that I didn't like the main character, Lily. I found her one dimensional, and quite irritating. The style of writing is still good but doesn't go deep enough, and I just couldn't get right inside the story. ...more
A Perfect Husband is the first book that I’ve read by Hilary Boyd. This book has mature characters and deals with real problems such as gambling and drug addiction. The title of the book is what really attracted me towards it when I saw it lying on the shelves at the Big Bad Wolf book fair. I mean, which married woman would not be intrigued by a title called ‘A Perfect Husband’? The blurb at the back was promising and led me to giving it a go.
