I am super excited to share my review with you today for My Husbands Girlfriend by Sheryl Browne. Which is out now
She told my little boy a secret and now he’s gone…
Tucking her little boy Ollie into bed one night, Sarah notices his beloved teddy bear, which she bought him when he was born, is missing and in its place is a new toy given to him by her ex-husband’s new girlfriend, Laura. When she asks Ollie about it, he begins to shift uncomfortably, before whispering ‘Laura told me a big secret and she said I can never tell you’.
Sarah’s heart sinks. But when she raises her concerns, nobody wants to listen. To everyone else, Laura is the perfect stepmother and Sarah is just the jealous ex-wife. But Sarah knew the moment she met Laura she couldn’t trust her, from her overly perfect stepmother act to the way she evaded questions about her own history.
Soon Ollie is asking to spend more time with his dad and Laura, and shrinking away from Sarah. Then, when she calls to him in the garden one day, Ollie doesn’t answer back. The garden is silent. Ollie’s sandpit is empty. Ollie has disappeared.
If you love a book that keeps twisting and turning, then you’ll love My Husband’s Girlfriend – it’s guaranteed to keep you up all night. Perfect for fans of Claire McGowan, Shalini Boland and Lisa Jewell.
I have read almost all of Sheryl’s books But I have to admit this is the first one I have read in a while. The cover and title totally sold it to me, so I went into this not having a clue what the story was about. And OMG Sheryl certainly hasn’t lost her touch. Drawing you in from the start I was well and truly hooked.
After Sarah is told by her son Ollie that Laura has told him a big secret but cannot tell her. Not only does Sarah want to know what this secret is but so did I. I literally couldn’t read this book fast enough to find out what was going to happen next.
Being a mother myself you cannot help but sympathise with Sarah. I would be exactly the same. Never judge a book by its cover is exactly this story.
Then just when I thought I had it all worked out the author throws in an unexpected OMG twist….What an ending! I wasn’t expecting that. This Whisper that is utterly addictive and full of suspense with plenty of twists and turns. Yet another awesome read by the queen of psychological thrillers!
