"A riveting new thriller about the lies we tell ourselves from the author of Saving Meghan. Just because you love someone doesn't mean you know them. Nina Garrity learned that the hard way after discovering that her missing husband, Glen, had been leading a double life with another woman. But Glen's gone-presumably drowned while fishing on his boat-so she can't confront him about the affair or any of his other misdeeds. A year and a half after the accident, Nina considers herself a widow, even though the police never found a body. Following a chance encounter with Simon Fitch, a teacher from her daughter Maggie's middle school, Nina finds love again and has hopes of putting her shattered life back together. Simon, a widower still grieving the suicide of his first wife, has found his dream girl in Nina. His charm and affections help break through to a heart hardened by betrayal. Nina's teenage son, Connor, embraces Simon as the father he wishes his dad could have been, but Maggie sees a far darker side to this new man in their lives. Even Nina's good friends wonder if Simon is supremely devoted-or dangerously possessive. But Nina is committed, not only to her soon-to-be new husband but also to resuming her former career as a social worker. Before she can move forward, however, Nina must first clear her conscience that she's not making another terrible choice in a man. In doing so, she will uncover the shocking truth: the greatest danger to her, and her children, are the lies people tell themselves"--… (altro)

One of the best psychological thriller I have read after a long time!! The main message which stands out is about how well you know someone whom you love ??

It kind of reminded me of an advice which my dad always gave me, " You only get to know the depth of the water only once you enter into it and you get to know the true self of a person only once you have lived with them."

Overall it was a really satisfying read for me!! ( )

I loved the epilogue of The New Husband by DJ Palmer. Do not skip it. The “mystery” of the book is clearly answered early on. I find myself reading throughout the book thinking about how certain adult characters do not see what seems so obvious to me. The ending makes it clear that this is somewhat the point of the book. More than a thriller, this book is the story of an abusive relationship.

Reviewed for NetGalley. ( )

It appeared the bad guy who was holding the husband hostage for two years would never be stopped before more killing, however, this story comes to a dramatic end and all ends well. Very good story development, but makes you wonder if you would be so clueless as the mother in this story. ( )

I am in agreement with another posted review of this book. I tried to like it. I really did. It had a good premise, domestic thrillers are the thing now, and I like to listen to an exciting audiobook when I take my daily walk. But the more I listened and came to know the characters, the lower my rating went, and the behavior of some of them at the book’s end was just distasteful and unacceptable to me, which accounts for my 2-star rating. I finished it because I wanted to know who survived and who didn’t. if I had been reading a paper copy instead of listening to an audiobook I probably would have just flipped to the last chapter.

I don’t know if this is a new author or not, but the book has the feel of inexperience. There is just way too much duplication – instead of a description or reference to set the scene, it goes on and on. It’s as if the author wants to include every possible phrase or scenario or bit of knowledge a character might have.

The characters don’t ring true. I am willing to suspend disbelief – it’s fiction, after all – but this was beyond what I could ignore. On the one hand Nora knew pretty much everything and knew the lingo to go with it. How to do excellent online research, tail a suspect, avoid being scammed, she fell right back into the job she left many, many years before; you name it, she knew about it and could do it. But this is the same indecisive woman who fumbled around doing who knows what for a year and a half after Glenn disappeared and then ended up moving her family in with Simon, knowing as much about him as you would after a first date. Is he good, is he bad? Who knows? Well, daughter Maggie says she knows, but Nora won’t listen. Maggie is in junior high but her character feels more like a high schooler. A spoiled, whiny high schooler. It was eventually too much of a stretch to imagine a girl about 12 years old behaving as Maggie did. Son Connor is kind of just there. He likes Simon so provides the balance to Maggie’s loathing of him. And Nora can’t figure anything out, and when she starts to, she is inept, even with all her self-proclaimed expertise.

Once the story got going the suspense ramped up and stayed at that level. There were several surprises that I did not anticipate. I was drawn into the story and wanted to find out how things ended. Had it not been for the poorly-developed, unrealistic characters I might have enjoyed it. However, the behavior of the characters at the end is entitled, selfish, and just wrong and totally spoiled it for me.

Thanks to Macmillan Audio for providing a copy of The New Husband via Audiobooks.com for my honest review. I appreciate the opportunity to listen and regret I could not provide a more positive review. All opinions are my own. ( )

Have you ever read a book that makes you want to put it down, not because it is bad, but because it is THAT GOOD?? I didn't want it to end! It reminded me why I like suspense novels so much... The anticipation, the jaw dropping twists, and the redemption ( the book MUST have redemption!) I LOVED this book!

4⭐
The New Husband by D.J. Palmer was everything I hope for in a book. It had suspense, anticipation, angst, plot twists, little bit of romance (sort of) and redemption. I found myself getting mad at Nina , but I think you are supposed to. You are supposed to question her, and cheer her on. But it was Maggie, Nina's daughter, that I really loved! Yes she is a typical teenager ,but her love for her mom and dad was always her main motivation.

D.J. Palmer told an angst filled story with awesome characters and I thoroughly enjoyed this book!
