Our Review

"Who says why not? when someone proposes marriage?

Someone with reasons why not...that's who."

His Secret Wife was my first book by this author and I flew through it. I really enjoyed it and thought it was very well plotted. I also liked the way the author handled the neurodivergent characters well and with sensitivity. The story of men having secret families is not a new one but this had some unexpected angles to it that worked really well. 

Elle has a perfect life. A dream home, hard-working husband and a clever little boy. 

Jen has a job she loves, a passionate husband and a creative little girl. 

When coincidence throws Jen and Ellle together they become fast friends...and then they discover they have the same husband. 

The two women are opposites but their husband knows how to manipulate them both so they don't suspect him of anything. 

His Secret Wife had so much more going on than just this story. I loved how the author got into the nitty gritty of being a mother, how sometimes it is hard and you can lose your identity in motherhood. 

"Before I had Cora I had no idea of the guilt involved in being a mum. Guilt because you always felt like you were letting your colleagues down. Guilt because your school was in after-school club every day. Guilt  because finding the perfect Cleopatra seemed more important and a lot more stimulating than watching Finding Nemo with a seven-year-old. For the first time in my life, I felt like I was doing badly at everything."

There were a lot of different topics covered within this story and I could not put it down!
