It’s Always the Husband – by Michele Campbell

Original Cover
My own copy

The blurb:

Kate, Aubrey, and Jenny. They first met as college roommates and soon became inseparable, even though they are as different as three women can be. Twenty years later, one of them is standing at the edge of a bridge . . and someone else is urging her to jump. 

How did things come to this?

As the novel cuts back and forth between their college years and their adult years, you see the exact reasons why these women love and hate each other—but can feelings that strong lead to murder? Or will everyone assume, as is often the case, that it’s always the husband?

My Opinion:

*Book provided by the publisher on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

I was very curious about this book and also intrigued when I read the blurb. Unfortunately, I struggled a lot with this book.

We get to know Kate, Aubrey and Jenny when they are college roommates. The three girls are very different from each other, but a friendship builds between them. I couldn’t understand their friendship, because of certain things, which happened between them, but oh well. A lot of intense things happens during their college time and it’s not different twenty years later.

They are all married now, they have kids and a job. Are they happy though?! I was actually really surprised to see who they married and what they do now. They are still friends and there is a lot of mystery around them. One of them is having an affair with one of the husbands and when something terrible happens they police is on their trail.

The mystery around the story and the secrets kept me with the book. I wanted to find out the truth. I had to question a lot of decisions and actions throughout the book though. Another thing I struggled with was the back and forth change between their college lives and their adult lives. The pace of the book seems slow, the storyline is uneven and I just didn’t like the characters, they all had something unlikable.

The story behind the book is great, but it just didn’t work for me like that, I was glad when it was over.
