His Other Life | Beth Thomas| Review

Official Blurb

He was hiding a terrible secret . . .
Grace’s new husband Adam seems like the perfect package. Good looking, great job, completely charming – almost too good to be true . . .
So when Adam suddenly disappears from Grace’s life, she is left bewildered and heartbroken. And with a lot of unanswered questions.
As she tries desperately to find him, Grace opens a Pandora’s Box of secrets and lies – and starts to learn that Adam wasn’t so perfect after all.
What shameful secrets was her husband hiding? Is Grace in danger? And can she survive the truth? However terrible it may be . . .

My view.

Although this was perfect half term reading, it was easy reading and you didn’t have to think too hard. I must admit I struggle to figure out what the point of the book was, and who it would appeal to most.

It flits between a mystery story, love story and drivel. Almost from the outset you despise the central character Grace (errr – or Sarah – never did understand that bit) she exists alongside her husband and doesn’t find it weird that he has no friends, or any past. She is not allowed to look at his phone or mail or even open his wardrobe.

It gets more bizarre too. I understand that the author is posing the question ‘Do we ever really know our spouses?’ But she is such a wet weekend that she is incredibly annoying and SPOILER ***two weeks after her hubby has walked out so is in love with another stranger – oh hang on, she met him when they were kids so it must be OK.

Too many holes in the plot. BUT as I said, for an easy read it is fine.
