Description
[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.” —The Washington Post

 
From the bestselling author of The Dead Ex, a deliciously addictive psychological thriller about the powerful effects of little white lies on three intertwined lives—and when those secrets become deadly 

When young lawyer Lily marries Ed, she’s determined to make a fresh start and leave the secrets of the past behind. But then she takes on her first murder case and meets Joe, a convicted murderer to whom Lily is strangely drawn—and 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 twelve years later, a chain of events is set in motion that can end only one way.

        November 7, 2016
        Newlywed London lawyer Lily Macdonald’s best intentions land her in some of the worst predicaments in British author Corry’s devilishly devious U.S. debut, in which almost no one proves totally trustworthy. For instance, Lily’s generous impulse to befriend nine-year-old neighbor Carla Cavoletti, a bullied Italian immigrant with whose vulnerability she identifies, will eventually change the course of the lives of Lily and her artist husband, Ed, unfortunately not for the better. Similarly, Lily’s drive to champion clients she views as underdogs, which stems in part from experiences with her autistic brother, blinds her to the fact that some are dangerously manipulative liars who actually belong behind bars. But well-meaning as Lily is, readers will discover she isn’t above hiding some rather unsavory secrets of her own. As twisty as little Carla’s glossy curls, which inspire Ed’s best work, this swiftly moving psychological thriller offers surprises right up to the finish. Agent: Kate Horndern, Kate Horndern Literary Agency (U.K.).

      • content: Rosalyn Landor gives a measured, elegant performance of this ambitious first novel despite the fact it is possibly trying to do too many things at once. One protagonist is a lawyer named Lily with a thing for men with Asperger's (family secrets are involved). The other is Lily's malignant neighbor, Carla, whom we meet first as a devious child, then 15 years later as a devious bombshell. Lily also has an untrustworthy husband and a psychopathic stalker. Could this end well? Landor is brilliant with accents (Carla is Italian, plus there are all those UK regions and classes to render). Her pacing is polished and deliberate, which provides a sense of structure to an overstuffed plot that, nevertheless, has its pleasures. B.G. � AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine
