Hi book lovers,

We have a winner. For our EASY BEACH READS book club we will read 'The Husband's Secret' by Liane Moriarty (http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/322069.Liane_Moriarty).

At first, this reviewer wanted to warn readers not to be taken in by the light tone of Liane Moriarty's The Husband's Secret. On second thought, maybe readers should let this rather crafty novelist's deceptive breeziness and humor sweep them along. It makes the shocks just that much more deliciously nasty, including the gob-smacking twist in the epilogue. (Bookpage)

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 that 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 really possible to know our spouses—and, ultimately, ourselves.

    As far as I can tell this book isn't out in paperback yet. Has anyone found a paperback version anywhere?

    Dear all, last minute change in plans - apologies! Since the group is a little bigger this time we can't accommodate it at the originally planned venue. Instead we will have the club at Skinners Loft in downtown JC. Please note the change in time: 11am!! Thanks for being on time so they can seat us.
