I've read some fantastic books since starting this blog and I'd like to give some of them a bit more recognition. So I've decided to add a new feature to the blog and give a special mention to one outstanding book each month. Feel free to add your thoughts of the chosen book in the comments below or even recommend an outstanding book of your own.
Jane Green's The Accidental Husband is a powerful story about two women connected by an earth-shattering secret.
Maggie and Sylvie are perfect strangers: two very different women, living very different lives on opposite coasts. But they share more in common than they could ever imagine.
Both women have beautiful children on the verge of flying the nest, the home they worked hard to build and always longed for, and a handsome and devoted husband they can't believe belongs to them. Both women think their lives are seamlessly secure, but they couldn't be more wrong . . .
For each is about to discover a secret that will shake their world to the very core, throwing into doubt everything they ever thought they knew, and bringing Maggie and Sylvie together in the most unexpected way.
It's been difficult to pick a Book of the Month for June as I've read some fantastic books and it was a toss up between The Accidental Husband by Jane Green and The Road Back by Rachel Abbott. The books are very different but they've been battling in my mind to become Book of the Month since I read them early on in June. But, after a LOT of thinking, I decided to fly the flag for chick lit and picked The Accidental Husband, which I thought was a fantastic read. I was hooked from the very beginning, desperate to see how the women would react when the big secret was revealed.
