Review - It's Always the Husband by Michele Campbell

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 Thoughts 
This is a favorite book of 2017!
Who doesn't have a close set of college friends that you can turn to with any problems in your life?  I personally do - I don't know where I would be without Melissa and Alyssa!  Two different schools but we are closer then anyone I have ever known!
But when I compare my friendships to those of Kate, Aubrey and Jenny - there is no comparison!  My friends are my BEST friends, those three girls are friends by association and that is it!  You will notice that they each have a love/hate relationship with each other.
Kate thinks she is amazing and can have whatever she wants.
Aubrey is a clinger and basically is stuck to Kate's side!
Jenny she is a local who feels that no matter how irritated she is with Kate and Aubrey that they are her best friends and she will do anything for them.
Then tragedy strikes and it changes the girls forever.
Fast forward 20 years and the past is still there.  But everyone is going in WAY different directions!
Then like the past, tragedy strikes again - is it suicide?  Is it murder? Only time will tell - and you will be second guessing yourself until the last few pages!
I recommend that you run to get this book and get started this weekend!  You will not be able to put it down!


Drink Selection
I am going to pair this thriller with a glass (or bottle) of the Witching Hour!  Sounds delish, right?
Rating
5 wine glasses all the way!  This is one of my top reads of 2017!  You will not be disappointed!
