This thread is open to discuss My Husband's Wife by Jane Corry.


"[A] must-read thriller. . . My Husband's Wife has an ending that will change the way you view marriage forever." -Bustle

"If you loved Gone Girl and The Talented Mr. Ripley, you'll love My Husband's Wife. It's got every thriller's trifecta: love, marriage and murder." -Parade

"The novel's plot is as provocative as its title."--Washington Post

The addictive psychological thriller that's a national bestseller.

When young lawyer Lily marries Ed, she's determined to make a fresh start. To leave the secrets of the past behind. But then she takes on her first murder case and meets Joe. A convicted murderer whom Lily is strangely drawn to. For whom she will soon be willing to risk almost anything.

But Lily is not the only one with secrets. Her next-door neighbor Carla may be only nine, but she has already learned that secrets are powerful things. That they can get her whatever she wants.

When Lily finds Carla on her doorstep sixteen years later, a chain of events is set in motion that can end only one way.

Laura | 9707 comments Did you get a copy of Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman ?

I 'm waiting for this to come in from my library-- The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks .

I am about 3 or 4 books away from reading the next Harry Dresden.

Alissa | 771 comments No worries...I will be behind today!! Practical Magic was at my library but I didn’t have time to get it before my trip so I won’t be able to get it until next week. I’ll let you know when I have it.

I’ll look at the other one to see if I can get it.
