My Husband’s Girlfriend by Sheryl Browne

I’m so delighted to be part of the tour today for this gripping book. Thanks so much to Bookouture for the copy of the book and invitation to be part of the tour.

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.

My Review:

Oh my goodness, this is a total rollercoaster ride of a book! I absolutely could not put it down, I just had to know how it was going to end.

I liked Sarah, and her relationship with Steve, her ex, seems to be pretty good, so when her instincts tell her that Laura is not quite as she seems, I believed her. There’s certainly quite a few red flags where Laura’s behaviour is concerned, and it didn’t seem that Sarah was being jealous or over-protective.

Laura is a difficult one to get to know, and I didn’t know whether she could be trusted. The story is told from several points of view, which makes it all the more intriguing, but still won’t give away the ending.

This book is so cleverly plotted, with so many twists and turns. It will keep you guessing right until the end. When I read books like these, I always have a few hypothesis in my mind as to what will happen, who is responsible etc., but trust me, you will not second guess this book, there are so many strands to the plot and it all comes to a head near the end.

Be aware that you will need to cancel everything to finish this book. Once I got into the last few chapters I was totally riveted and the house could have fallen down around me and I still would have been trying desperately to read the last few pages!

Each time I read one of Sheryl Browne’s books I think that this is the best one yet, but she continues to astound me with her brilliance with each new book. This really is the best one yet, until the next one!

Totally gripping and engrossing, a superb read. Can’t recommend it highly enough.
