Publisher Description

The story of a couple with seemingly perfect lives…and the secrets they hide behind closed doors.

Perfect for fans of Liane Moriarty and Jo Jo Moyes.

He was hiding a terrible secret . . .

Grace’s new husband Adam seems like the perfect package. Good looking, great job, completely charming – almost too good to be true . . .

So when Adam suddenly disappears from Grace’s life, she is left bewildered and heartbroken. And with a lot of unanswered questions.

As she tries desperately to find him, Grace opens a Pandora’s Box of secrets and lies – and starts to learn that Adam wasn’t so perfect after all.

What shameful secrets was her husband hiding? Is Grace in danger? And can she survive the truth? However terrible it may be . . .

About the author

Beth Thomas wrote her first book at the age of six. It was a short social commentary about ethnicity and fear of being different, incorporating magic, travel, adventure and ultimately, murder. The death at the end was an unexpected shock and came about as she had no idea how else to end the story. She thinks she’s improved since then, and hope that now her endings are a little more planned and satisfying. She lives in Kent with her family.

The book was an enjoyable holiday read. The unacceptable amount of typing errors / spelling mistakes let it down.

What to do when your husband doesn't return with the takeaway

His Other Life is one of the few books that I've read in a day, admittedly it's been a lazy day but the book was well written, easy to read with enough intrigue to keep my attention.

I felt for Grace, the thought of my husband just disappearing when he goes out for a takeaway doesn't bear thinking about. However we would have a Chinese!

There are obvious cracks in their marriage from the start and as I got further and further into the book, they're more structural than superficial.

Thank you Netgalley and HarperCollins (Avon) for this copy of the book in exchange for my review - I have discovered a new author who I'd say is the British Liane Moriarty!
