About this ebook

One dinner party will destroy everything.

The night that throws a wrecking ball into Abby’s life starts out perfectly at first. There’s still a hint of summer sun in the purple-streaked sky. Abby and her best friend, Sienna, look on fondly as their two husbands laugh under the garden gazebo. None of them know it’s the last time they will be together again.

What starts out as just a little fun, has devastating consequences for the couples. Alone with Sienna’s husband, Greg, Abby finds him unexpectedly charming. And something happens that night that neither she nor Greg can take back.

Abby is desperate to tell her husband and Sienna the truth, but can’t risk Greg sharing what he knows about her. She has no choice but to keep quiet. Then Greg suddenly disappears.

Is her best friend’s husband simply running from his secrets? Or has someone decided they can’t risk that he may share theirs?

The most gripping and twisty psychological thriller you’ll read this year from #1 bestseller Kathryn Croft. Perfect for readers who loved Gone Girl or The Girl on the Train.

My Review: The first word that comes to my mind after I read this book was OMG!!!!! I really loved and enjoyed this book so much. I was so exciting to see that this author wrote another book as it’s been years since her last one came out. I was jumping up and down with joy when I found out. I have loved this author’s previous books and this one sure did not disappoint. I loved how the book first started out with two couples swapping partners for the evening to see what it would be like. It reminded me of that tv show Wife Swap but what came after was where the book really got interesting. One of the husbands went missing right after the swap and was no where to be found. No one in this book was to be trusted after that. Everyone had something to hide. Each secret did eventually come out and revealed that shocker of an ending. I was like WOW is this really happening. I had no clue that this book would take a twisted turn like that but I loved it. Kudos to Kathryn Croft as you really surprised me with that ending. I hope I don’t have to wait years for your next book to come out. Until then I will be waiting patiently with the doors closed and my secrets close to my heart. Lastly, the characters, plot, and the ending of this book made this an easy and fast read. I would definitely recommend this book and happily give it 5 Hearts❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

This was a good book... Told mainly from 2 different woman's perspectives who became friends and then enemies and then friends and then enemies each one with secrets.... Oh!... There was lots of secrets through out... Lots of suspense too and the end was the most shocking of all I really did not expect the ending... As I read the last 5 or 6 chapters I really thought I had it sussed but turns out couldn't of been further from the truth... All in all its worth a read and I give it 4 stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🤗👍

“One dinner party…One fatal mistake…” The intriguing premise had me drawn to this book like a moth to a flame, rubbing my hands together with glee for what I hoped was going to be a very wicked read. How could it not be when best friends Sienna and Abby innocently swap husbands for a night to see how the other lives. I mean what could possibly go wrong with that… This is a very twisty and thrilling ride and it had me hanging off its every word. What was meant to be a night of fun, opens up one big massive can of worms and has dire consequences for all. Buried secret’s rise to the surface and it is a great lesson on how appearances can be deceiving and how the grass is not always greener on the other side. Kathryn Croft is a new author to me and The Other Husband has been a great introduction to her work and I am happy to say I was given exactly what I hoped for. This is one very wicked read!
