It's Always the Husband by Michele Campbell


  
As soon as I saw this title I knew I needed to get my hands on this. As a major thriller lover it does seem like it is always the husband, or quite often, so this title made me smile. Plus I loved Michele Campbell's last book that I read She was the Quiet One. So I had high hopes for this one and it did not disappoint!

Three girls that become thick as thieves during their college days and not because they are study buddies. These girls rule the campus of a prestigious college due to Kate's family connections that result in the rules not applying to them. Kate comes from "old money" and can get them out of any bind they get into, well almost anything...

 The first half of this book gave us a lot of background and development of the characters. I felt I knew Kate, Jenny and Aubrey whom were unlikely friends. The swore to stay loyal to each other no matter what happened. So this intriguing title alerted me to the fact that indeed at some point there would be a "husband" and quite likely someone would meet an unsavory fate, but who??? I racked my brain the first half trying to figure out who was going to end up marrying each other. A suspicious death occurs during their college years so I crossed that person off my list!

As they crossed over from college to adulthood the book really picked up the suspense. All the girls took directions that I did not expect and whoa the guys that ended up being the "husbands" really took my by surprise.

The twists keep coming and then we have a bombshell...I started putting past and present together and my mind was spinning with all the possible suspects. I must have changed my mind about five times of who could be behind all this. There are so many very unlikable characters but I love that! It makes it just the more interesting to me. This book kept me flipping the pages searching for answers until the very end!

Thank you so much to Michele Campbell, St. Martin's Press and Jordan Hanley for this copy to read and review. I loved it!
