The Husband’s Secret, by Liane Moriarty

Weaving an intricate web, The Husband’s Secret takes us into the lives of three women connected by a school in Sydney, Australia. When Cecelia finds a letter her husband has marked “to be opened in the event of my death,” she knows that, like Pandora, she should leave well enough alone. But she opens the letter anyway, letting out a secret that could destroy her family. Meanwhile, Tess leaves her cheating husband and returns to her mother’s home in Sydney, where she falls for hunky Connor, a coach at the school. Little does she know the school secretary suspects Connor of murdering her daughter, Janey: after all, he was the last one to see Janey alive. Each shadowed by secrets, the women are on a collision course.
