by Carey Baldwin
I just finished reading “The Marriage Secret”, by Carey Baldwin. Thank you to NetGalley and Bookouture for the advanced copy in return for an honest review.
This book is definately a domestic thriller told at a fast pace that keeps the reader engaged throughout. The story revolves around Holly and her suppossedly wonderful husband Zach. Holly has a secret that she is ashamed of and Zach uses the secret to control her every move. After they have a baby, Zach’s behaviour becomes cruel and untolerable. Reading the story, I was so angry at what he was doing to his wife that I wanted her to come to her senses and get away from him.
Holly confides her struggles to her friend Tamara, and as the story unfolds, there are more secrets revealed.I loved the twists and turns, and how strong Holly became throughout the story. I loved her devotion to her daughter Jolene and the way she battled for her future. There were a few surprises in the story that I wasn’t expecting, and that is what made this book so enjoyable…the element of surprise.
I wanted to give this book five stars, but I figured out the ending, so I can’t, but I can highly recommend this book because it was enjoyable and the main character was extremely likeable. Another question I had was why the inclusion of some of the characters. I felt that there were some parts of the book that didn’t add to it and could have been left out.
In the end. I really liked this book. It was a very entertaining and satisfying read, that left all questions answered in the last few pages.
