For fans of Apple Tree Yard and The Silent Wife, The Loving Husband draws readers into a marriage where nothing is as it seems....
Fran Hall and her husband Nathan have moved with their two children to a farmhouse on the edge of the Fens - a chance to get away from London and have a fresh start.
But when Fran wakes one night to find Nathan gone, she makes a devastating discovery. As questions about her husband and her relationships start to mount, Fran's life begins to spiral out of control.
What is she hiding from the police about her marriage, and does she really know the man she shared her bed with?
The Loving Husband is read by Clare Corbett, the acclaimed narrator of The Girl on the Train and The Widow.

Was so excited waiting for this one!

Sadly a little disappointed, the plot sounded like this book was right up my street, it did take me a couple of attempts to really get into this book, I was determined I wasn't going to give up. I did enjoy the book, a couple of things in the plot didn't ring true to me, won't spoil it for you though. But yes I did enjoy it, however the ending was a little disappointing. This book didn't leave me sat in the drive outside the house in the car, desperate to hear the next twist or turn, unlike many others I have listened to recently, Overall just a shame it didn't live up to my expectations.

Brilliant story and narration

I loved this story, kept me up late at night and couldn't wait to get back to it. Finished it in 2 days. Narration was brilliant too.
