It's Always the Husband
It's Always the Husband: A Novel | Michele Campbell
Kate, Aubrey, and Jenny first met as college roommates and soon became inseparable, despite being as different as three women can be. Kate was beautiful, wild, wealthy, and damaged. Aubrey, on financial aid, came from a broken home, and wanted more than anything to distance herself from her past. And Jenny was a striverbrillliant, ambitious, and determined to succeed. As an unlikely friendship formed, the three of them swore they would always be there for each other. But twenty years later, one of them is standing at the edge of a bridge, and someone is urging her to jump. How did it come to this? Kate married the gorgeous party boy, Aubrey married up, and Jenny married the boy next door. But how can these three women love and hate each other? Can feelings this strong lead to murder? When one of them dies under mysterious circumstances, will everyone assume, as is often the case, that its always the husband? A suspenseful, absorbing novel that examines the complexities of friendship, Its Always the Husband will keep readers guessing right up to its shocking conclusion.

September TBR!

I decided not to do many TBR picks because I have so much trouble adhering to set picks. I‘m just going to go by mood but I do have three set picks that I selected from a jar. The Perfect Child is not pictured (ebook). I shared more about these three picks in my most recent BookTube video! https://youtu.be/BOw_gPYK_S4

What‘s in your September TBR pile?

bromeliad Nice! I'm the same way with specific TBR lists, so I usually keep my TBR pile pretty fluid and trim it regularly. However, I do plan to spend September reading through 3w
Megabooks The Book of Essie is great! I hope you enjoy it. I don‘t make TBR pictures because I am an unapologetic mood reader! 🤣 3w

Not very good at being witty or particularly intelligent! I read because my life makes my brain exhausted, and I need to wind down at night before I can sleep. Enjoyed this one, to the point that I'm a bit miffed it's finished!

The story starts with someone taking a walk on a bridge. You soon learn that this person is being coaxed/forced to jump and a sense of foreboding fills you that something evil is going to happen. Then the real story begins. College roommates sharing a secret find themselves back together 22 years later, in the exact place where it all began and where history has now repeated. Friends turn enemies, love turns to hate and secrets turn to revenge

From my #tbr. The bridge on the cover is so pretty! It‘s a shame that the story begins with one of three college friends #falling off of it...

I think maybe the fact that I listened to this on audio maybe had an impact on how much I liked it. I found it to get overly complicated with the timeline going back and forth between present and past. I liked the story, but the writing not so much.

This book was not what I thought it would be. In fact, I wish I hadn‘t wasted time reading it. I didn‘t care for any of the characters and it was just too much drug use.

Thought I could listen to the audio- nope. I can‘t do mean girls and the “frenemy” thing is played out, just feeds into the BS notion that females can‘t have honest friendships. 😤

I loved this book! It was a great listen! I detest women like Kate Eastman & have no pity nor mercy for ppl that deliberately ruin themselves and those closest to them out of pure selfishness, greed, and lust. That being said it was a good thriller and it really did leave you guessing until the very end. I‘m eager to read whatever Michele Campbell writes next. It makes you question if the ppl around you are healthy for you.

This is the 3rd book I‘ve read recently with the same plot. Something terrible happens to high school friends. They cover it up, vow not to speak of it, then it comes back to bite them in adulthood. Don‘t want to say it‘s not good. Just repetitive.

Eh. I feel like I've been on a mediocre book streak lately. This story is about three very different girls who become friends after fate throws them together freshman year of college. The first quarter focuses almost exclusively on their friendship, while the rest of the story shifts back and forth between past and present. What this book is NOT is a book about friendship. In fact, after reading, I'm still not sure why they stayed in touch at all.

🍭🍭🍭This is a slow read. Well, maybe I should say, it is laying the ground work for the finale, which is a WOW moment. It does pick up about half way through the book and then moves pretty rapidly. I did figure out the murderer. The author drops several hints and if you are paying attention….YOU GOT IT!

Enjoying a little outdoor reading time before I head in to work FOR THE WHOLE WEEKEND! This one is a little slow. But getting there. #outdoorreading

Bks4Wrms I'm currently reading this too. I'm about 35% in (Ch 13/pg 114) and thinking of bailing. It's so slow and nothing is really happening. Should I power through? 2y
Reecaspieces @Bks4Wrms I am about 61% through it and it is just now kicking it up a notch. Just a notch. Not sure why I am still reading....Kate is keeping me entertained, I guess. Girl on the train was slow like this and the ending is what you read it for. I hope it has a strong ending. 2y
