Your best friend will always be there for you…won’t she?
Have you ever had that sense that you’re being watched? And you turn, suddenly, but it’s just a curtain, blowing in the wind? Or the dress hanging in the doorway? Nat knows something’s wrong. Her best friend, Beth, would never have upped and left without saying goodbye to her. But no one believes that Beth was taken – she is a fly-by-night, a party girl who can’t be trusted. No one’s listening to Nat. But someone is definitely watching her..
I love the cover on this book and have read both of Christobel’s books before this one so was a must really! I enjoyed reading this book and finished it in just 3 days. Some would say that it dragged out until the last 5 chapters and I would agree but it all added up to that big ending! WOW. I did not have a clue who did it but wow. This book is easy to read, contains short chapters and has a thrilling story line of who did it? … I loved the setting and all the individual characters facing their own personal challenges along the way. I awarded a fair four stars as it didn’t wow me away but a story I enjoyed nevertheless. I look forward to reading more by Christobel Kent in the future. Enjoy.
Can you ever truly know the one you love? Fran Hall and her husband Nathan live in a farmhouse on the edge of the Fens with their two children.

As Fran finds herself under intense police scrutiny, she and her two small children become more isolated as she starts to doubt whether or not she really knew Nathan. Was he really the loving husband that Fran had trusted him to be? As police suspicion grows the questions for Fran begin to mount. Is there something that she is hiding from them – something that she has kept hidden from everyone, including her husband?
Thanks to Netgalley and the Publishers for allowing me to read a copy of this book. I decided to give this one a try as I really enjoy Christobel’s last book (The Crooked House). I awarded The Loving Husband four stars as it was a good read however, I did not find myself as hooked as his last story and the story kept switching to different places throughout. I did understand the story and enjoyed it but it took me a while to finish it. I personally prefer The Crooked House but this is still a great story with a cleverly written plot to keep the reader guessing throughout. It is written well and easy to read with medium chapters. The beginning grabs your attention straight away which is always a good sign… But personally I didn’t enjoy it as much as The Crooked House. Still a fab read though and would appeal to readers who enjoy a good thriller, mystery, drama and suspense filled story full of secrets and lies.
