Review: My Darling Husband by Kimberly Belle

My Darling Husband
by Kimberly Belle

Publisher: Park Row
Pages: 352
Format: eARC
Buy the Book: Amazon

Goodreads:  Everyone is about to know what her husband isn’t telling her…

Jade and Cam Lasky are by all accounts a happily married couple with two adorable kids, a spacious home and a rapidly growing restaurant business. But their world is tipped upside down when Jade is confronted by a masked home invader. As Cam scrambles to gather the ransom money, Jade starts to wonder if they’re as financially secure as their lifestyle suggests, and what other secrets her husband is keeping from her.

Cam may be a good father, a celebrity chef and a darling husband, but there’s another side he’s kept hidden from Jade that has put their family in danger. Unbeknownst to Cam and Jade, the home invader has been watching them and is about to turn their family secrets into a public scandal.

Kritters Thoughts:  Jade and Cam Lasky look like the perfect Atlanta couple, he is a "celebrity" chef and they have two wonderful kids.  A masked home invader holds Jade and the kids hostage and Cam must gather the ransom and save them while secrets are coming out and the perfect personas are unraveling.  

For me this book moved so quickly and the minute one chapter ended, I had to jump into the next to find out what would happen.  I loved how the author built the story and unraveled the clues - it just worked so well.  I often judge a mystery/thriller book by the final suspect and this one did not disappoint.  I loved the finale and how it unfolded and how the author revealed who it was and their motive.  Kimberly Belle gives the reader the pieces to the puzzle at just the right time.

AND these characters!  I will always love a couple unravelling story.  I appreciate when they are both presenting the perfect life and keep secrets from each other and the outside world and then the dominos fall!  While I got frustrated with, I think, all of the characters at one moment or another, I was sitting on the edge of my seat to find out the final resolution.    

I have read about half of Kimberly Belle's books and have loved all of them so much.  I would love to catch up in 2022 and complete her backlist!

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
