About The Book

Cleo Forsum is a bestselling novelist turned scriptwriter whose TV series, ‘The Baking Detective’ is a huge success. Writing is all she’s ever wanted to do, and baking and murder stories have proved a winning combination.
But now she has decided to walk away from it all – including divorcing her husband, Wallace – before her past secrets catch up with her.
As Cleo drafts the final ever episodes of the series, people she knows start getting hurt. And it’s soon clear that someone is trying to frame her for murder.
She thinks she knows why, but Cleo can’t tell the police or prove her innocence. Because then she’d have to confess about her other husband . . .


My Thoughts

Let’s be honest, in some books you don’t need to know much of the plot, only with the title is enough to make you want to read it. This is the case of “My Other Husband”; Cleo Forsum Pryce is the first suspect of a murder, but she can’t tell the truth unless she reveals her deepest secrets… What’s more important, the truth or her freedom? Questions, questions! This is a story that will keep you intrigued since the first moment, amazingly well plotted and with some very interesting characters and twists, it’s a must read book.
The story is explained between two different time lines, the past with a young Cleo who is happy and light; and the completely different present, which is cold and dark. Why has she changed so much? What is her secret?
I have to say that this is a book that you should read without knowing much of the plot, knowing too much will spoil the book and believe me when I say that this is a must read book!Be prepared for twists and surprises to keep you awake all night.
Ready for “My Other Husband”?
