Update: we’re thrilled to announce that the winner of this giveaway is Sara Thorp. Thanks to all who entered! And don’t forget to check back soon. We have lots of great giveaways lined up for the rest of this year.
I will read anything Liane Moriarty writes. Novel. Essay. Grocery list. Anything. There are maybe five authors that I can truly say that about, and Liane has earned her spot on the list with a remarkable consistency of storytelling and human insight. I can not think of any other author who taps into the female psyche the way she does. And when I pick up one of her novels I have this aerie sensation that someone has been reading my email. She has an inherent grasp on the doubts, fears, insecurities, hopes, dreams, and desires most common to my gender. And when you combine that with a gift for constantly surprising her readers, the result is magic every single time. So when we heard that she had a new novel coming out this fall we reserved a spot at the top of our to-read pile. And when the book came in, we were not disappointed. THE HUSBAND’S SECRET is Liane Moriarty at her best. (Though we also adored her first two novels)
There are few things more fun than reading a book you love only to discover that the author has a backlist. There’s no waiting a year or more for her next book to come out. You can go directly to the bookstore and indulge in her storytelling for a little while longer. Liane’s first two novels, WHAT ALICE FORGOT and THE HYPNOTIST’S LOVE STORY earned her a wide and loyal audience. They are just as spellbinding as THE HUSBAND’S SECRET. And we’re giving all three novels away to one lucky winner! Leave a comment on this post and you’ll be entered.

At the heart of THE HUSBAND’S SECRET is a letter that’s not meant to be read.
“My darling Cecilia, if you’re reading this, then I’ve died…”
Imagine that your husband wrote you a letter, to be opened after his death. Imagine, too, that the letter contains his deepest, darkest secret–something with the potential to destroy not just the life you built together, but the lives of others as well. Imagine, then, that you stumble across that letter while your husband is still very much alive…
Cecilia Fitzpatrick has achieved it all–she’s an incredibly successful businesswoman, a pillar of her small community, and a devoted wife and mother. Her life is as orderly and spotless as her home. But a letter is about to change everything, and not just for her: Rachel and Tess barely know Cecilia–or each other–but they too are about to feel the earth-shattering repercussions of her husband’s secret.
Acclaimed author Liane Moriarty has written a gripping, thought-provoking novel about how well it is possible to really know our spouses–and, ultimately, ourselves.
