A rollercoaster ride was this with the atmosphere of history repeating itself. Author Nicola Marsh’s writing had my heart thumping like a rabbit being stalked.

Every turn of the page filled me with trepidation and excitement about what I would find written on it. The words chosen had the greatest potential of infusing me with frenetic energy to know – What happened next. The Sister’s Husband was one wicked thriller.

This was the story of Brooke and Freya in the present and Alice and Diana in the past. Brooke had left town after a catastrophe and returned only for Freya’s wedding. Alice was raising her sister’s kids along with her own after her death. Their lives were intertwined where coveting what the other one had was the theme.

Having read many books by this talented author, I was glad she came out with something new where secrets and lies went hand in glove in the entire story. Some of the characters went too far in their need to hide the past. But loose lips sink sips. And a word uttered at an inopportune time caused Brooke to start digging way into the past.

I liked how the author managed to ramp up my curiosity to the point where reading this book became my sole focus. I liked the sisters even when I hated their acts. A moment’s desperation could lead to madness.

This was a perfect book for me to lose my head over as it kept the world far away. The secrets between the sisters, their husbands, and the closely guarded lies had me salivating to get to the end. The author dropped one truth every few pages, and there were times I thought I had it figured out. But I was wrong.

Some might think it was too far fetched. But I did know some things go around in a circle. This did too. That was the beauty of it. Would knowing the final secret restore the balance and love between all of them?

The sunroom at the back of the house is just as I remember. I can’t taste homemade lemonade or smell oatmeal cookies without thinking of home, of the beautiful cliffs of Martino Bay, and I feel welcomed. But all thoughts of a happy family reunion are destroyed the moment I see him…

He’s as handsome as I remember: broad shoulders, piercing blue eyes, hair the colour of burnt toffee.

The man who once meant the world to me. The reason I fled eleven years ago. I’ve never told anyone the terrible mistake I made that night. The secret we share. I’m still haunted by the crashing waves at the bottom of the cliffs, the blood…

But what is he doing at my sister’s house?

And then I see her. My baby sister. She smiles, she tips her hand so I can see the ring. And his arm slides around her waist, pulling her close…

I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey down its pages, straight from the heart. STRICTLY HONEST and UNBIASED.
