This book was purchased by Traveling With T for listening while walking time.

My Darling Husband

Summary: 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.

With riveting twists and a breakneck pace, My Darling Husband is an utterly compelling thriller that once again showcases Kimberly Belle’s exceptional talent for domestic suspense.


Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

Have been a fan of Kimberly Belle and her books for some time. Some I like better than others (I still recommend Dear Wife to everyone) and this one falls into the category of I like better other books by her better, but still felt this was good.


What I liked:

This cover. All of Kimberly’s covers are really good, but I thought this was really fitting with the vibe of the book.

The utter desperation that came off in Cam during some of this book as he realizes that his choices have led to how certain parts of this book play out.

Jade. Her mama bear instincts are STRONG.


What I didn’t love (no reflection on Kimberly’s writing)

Audiobook narrators are hit and miss with me. And when I listen to samples, while sometimes they do help me decide if I’m going to like the narrator(s), they are just samples. So maybe I don’t hear the interpretation of some characters. For me, the character of Baxter was pushing the limits on what I could handle about children in books, but the narration for Baxter eventually grated on my nerves. Except and I have to say I did laugh REALLY hard at one particular line and I’m not going to spoil it for you, but it was funny.


Bottom line: There was a lot I liked about this book and some parts of the book I felt was a teensy bit draggy. But overall, I recommend.
