The Secrets of Married Women - Carol Mason
Reading Challenge Category: Free book from Kindle Unlimited
When Jill’s husband discovers he can never have children, it tears a hole in their marriage that Jill doesn’t know how to repair. Frustrated, she seeks comfort in her friends: fierce Leigh, with her high-powered career and doting family, and sweet, uncomplicated Wendy, who has a rock-solid marriage any woman would envy. Leigh and Wendy’s lives seem perfect. But beneath the surface are secrets that could tear their friendship apart. Leigh has grown tired of her stay-at-home husband and is looking for excitement—outside of the marriage bed. And after seventeen years of marriage, Wendy can’t shake the sense that there is something missing in her life. As Jill is drawn deeper into her friends’ relationships, she is confronted by a temptation of her own: an intriguing stranger whose good looks and charm spark an instant connection.
This was a rollercoaster of emotions book. You truly experienced what the characters were feeling, especially Jill’s turmoil. There were gasp out loud moments too as there were little shockers along the way. The book was so well written, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It certainly makes you appreciate (as a married woman) what you have and how fragile you could make a situation with one silly mistake. There is a lot of insight in this book about infidelity and the repercussions, and it acts as a very cautionary tale. The only very small let-down for me was the ending. I would have liked to see Jill be independent, and it felt a little rushed to get a happy ever after. This, unfortunately, changed it from a five star read to a four.
