**NEW crime book review** The Loving Husband by Christobel Kent


There are SO many brilliant books being released in April. And I am kicking the month off with The Loving Husband by Christobel Kent… 
Can you ever truly know the one you love?
Fran Hall and her husband Nathan live in a farmhouse on the edge of the Fens with their two children. One February night, when Fran is woken by her baby, she finds the bed empty beside her and Nathan gone. Searching the house for him she makes a devastating discovery.
As Fran finds herself under intense police scrutiny, she and her two small children become more isolated as she starts to doubt whether or not she really knew Nathan. Was he really the loving husband that Fran had trusted him to be?
As police suspicion grows the questions for Fran begin to mount. Is there something that she is hiding from them - something that she has kept hidden from everyone, including her husband?

I do love a good thriller especially ones where a major event happens within the first few pages and then you try and spend the rest of the book guessing and second guessing what the hell the outcome is going to be.
So I was very excited to get my hands on The Loving Husband as I knew from the synopsis it was going to be a rollercoaster read – and it really was…
Completely compelling, this novel ticked all the crime boxes for me: dark, addictive, with an explosive end.
I haven’t read anything by Christobel Kent before but The Crooked House is now on my TBR list as its received outstanding reviews and I loved her writing style. 
If you’re a fan of Gone Girl and Girl on the Train, then The Loving Husband is certainly for you.


  1. I'm currently working on my holiday reading list (did I mention I'm going on holiday soon in the last five minutes) and I do love me a thriller that makes me question my marriage. By jove I'm doing it.
