Six responsible adults. Three cute kids. One small dog. It’s just a normal weekend. What could possibly go wrong?
Sam and Clementine have a wonderful, albeit, busy life: they have two little girls, Sam has just started a new dream job, and Clementine, a cellist, is busy preparing for the audition of a lifetime. If there’s anything they can count on, it’s each other.
Clementine and Erika are each other’s oldest friends. A single look between them can convey an entire conversation. But theirs is a complicated relationship, so when Erika mentions a last minute invitation to a barbecue with her neighbors, Tiffany and Vid, Clementine and Sam don’t hesitate. Having Tiffany and Vid’s larger than life personalities there will be a welcome respite.
Two months later, it won’t stop raining, and Clementine and Sam can’t stop asking themselves the question: What if we hadn’t gone?
WOW. Thanks to Netgalley and the publishers for my copy of this book, I have voluntarily read and reviewed this story. I have read a few of Liane’s other stories so this was a MUST HAVE and it did not let me down at all, I loved it and enjoyed every minute of it. I must admit it is a long story but the story is written well and told brilliantly. The character were perfect in their own individual way and so were the setting, literally I have nothing bad to say about this book! Truly, Madly, Guilty is easy to read, fast paced and will have you hooked from the beginning.
Its not often I say this but this story is one I actually couldn’t put down and wanted to devour! The perfect story packed with drama, lies and secrets alongside a scary ‘accident’. Parents who read this will be holding and watching their child a little closer I know I will. Well deserved five stars. Highly recommend if you haven’t read it already. Enjoy, I did.

I could not put this book down until I had finished it, The husbands secret is an excellently written, easy to read book for all to enjoy. The husbands secret won the Autumn 2013 book club award so it is perfect for you readers included in a book club.
