About the Book:

Bestselling author of DEAR WIFE and THE MARRIAGE LIE, Kimberly Belle returns with her most heart-pounding thriller to date, as a masked home invader reveals the cracks in a marriage.

Everyone is about to know what her husband isn’t telling her…

Jade and Cam Lasky are by all accounts a happily married couple with two adorable kids, a spacious home and a rapidly growing restaurant business. But their world is tipped upside down when Jade is confronted by a masked home invader. As Cam scrambles to gather the ransom money, Jade starts to wonder if they’re as financially secure as their lifestyle suggests, and what other secrets her husband is keeping from her.

Cam may be a good father, a celebrity chef and a darling husband, but there’s another side he’s kept hidden from Jade that has put their family in danger. Unbeknownst to Cam and Jade, the home invader has been watching them and is about to turn their family secrets into a public scandal.

With riveting twists and a breakneck pace, My Darling Husband is an utterly compelling thriller that once again showcases Kimberly Belle’s exceptional talent for domestic suspense.About the Author:

 My Review

The Lasky family has it all…they own several popular restaurants, a huge home and Cam is a well known celebrity chef.  Jade and Cam love each other, plus their two young children.  Then, it all blows up in one day.  

Jade and her two children arrive home, but quickly find out they aren’t alone.  Someone is waiting for them in their garage  The man is wearing a mask and waving a gun.  Jade and the kids become prisoners in their own beloved home.  

He demands Jade’s husband bring a cash ransom of $734,296 that evening.  It’s a pretty specific number.  Cam doesn’t know what it means but he’s not going to endanger his family’s lives.  The problem is, he doesn’t have the money to pay it.  This is a case of looks can be deceiving.  He looks like a wealthy man but he’s definitely not.  To make matters worse, he only has a few short hours to get the money.

Jade has faith her husband will come through, but she’s fast learning she might not know everything about her own life.  There are some secrets that she never saw coming.

This is one of those books I just couldn’t put down.  I read late into the night and finished in just two days.  I never read books that fast.  

There were so many different possible theories as to what was going on and why.  It kept me on my toes trying to figure it all out.  Just when you think you know all the answers, the author throws in a new twist that keeps you thinking.

I never read anything by this author but I’ve been browsing her backlist and I can already see quite a few books I want to read.    

My Darling Husband is a twisty suspense that captivated me from beginning to end.  This is the first book I read in 2022 and already I have a contender for favorite of the year.  That’s how much I loved this book.
