Trailer Þ The New Husband PDF by ☆ D.J. Palmer I have just finished reading The New Husband by D.
J Palmer Thank you to Netgalley, the author and St Martin s Press for my advanced copy, in exchange for an honest reviewI am giving this book 2.
5 starsIt started off quite interesting, and then I quickly began to lose interest I thought that it was very predictable, and that the characters were ones that I could not emphasise with The storyline was just a tad on the hokey side for my liking This actually felt like a YA book to me, and perhaps that is a good audience for it.
I realise that I am not giving a rating that the majority of readers are for the book, but it was not one for my liking, and I just wanted to get through it once I started it NetGalley How well do you know someone Whew FINALLY I have been reading or attempting to read some less than enjoyable books lately This was like a breath of dark, twisted, creepy air My first bit of advice is this go into this one as blind as possible The synopsis is enough Nina Garrity has moved on since the disappearance of her husband, Glen After the police came to her door to tell her that his bloody boat was found but not his body, she learned some hard truths about him Then she took a deep breath.
and moved onto Simon Simon, a widower, is a high school teacher who has swooped in and swept Nina off her feet He is making a life with her even if her teenage daughter, Maggie is not okay with their romance Nina s son, Connor, enjoys his time with Simon he finally has a man in his life who is spending time with him.
That s all you are getting from me folks I loved how the sto Just Because You Love Someone Doesn T Mean You Know ThemNina 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 TogetherSimon, 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 PossessiveBut 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 Nina s husband disappears and evidence leads her and the police to believe he probably abandoned the family due to secretly losing his job two years before his disappearance Within a couple of months of her husband s disappearance, Nina is in a committed relationship with too good to be true Simon, a teacher at her daughter Maggie s school Maggie is very upset about the relationship for a number of reasons and now, two years into the relationship, friction between Maggie and Simon is just one of the problems Nina is facing The story started out slowly, with Nina allowing Simon to pretty much dictate how things were in the relationship but when Nina rekindles her career, Simon starts showing his true colors Maggie blames Simon for misunderstandings, missed appointments, and other things going on in the household although Nina doesn t want to believe he s causing SPOILER INCLUDED NOT the major spoiler but a spoiler.
I can t resist I don t drop spoiler bombshells often in reviews but I was ROLLING ON THE FLOOR LAUGHING when discussing this book with my husband, Paul It s amazing how fun alive books become with buddy chats This wasn t the first time I ve laughed inappropriately actually when reading a domestic psychological thriller book The uncontrollable laughter happened to me at the end of the book, The Couple Next Door , by Shari Lapena, too So in D.
J Palmer s, The New Husband.
I we laughed silly about scenes in this book We are a sick human beings in this house HERE S A SPOILER A therapist gets murdered in this story you ll get details when you read the entire book Paul and I were cracking up cracking jokes REALLY the thera This is a intense, tense and utterly twisted psychological thriller of lies and secrets by DJ Palmer Just how well is it possible to know your partner in a marriage Nina Garrity finds everything she thought she knew about her husband, Glenn, collapses after he goes missing on a fishing trip, the boat has lots of blood but questions as to Glenn s whereabouts remain unanswered Simon Fitch, a teacher, appears on the scene, a sweet, caring and kind man, the complete antithesis to the untrustworthy Glenn as far as Nina is concerned, in short he is the perfect man that she has been lucky to snag He is a grieving widower, mourning the loss of his wife who committed suicide, successfully worming his way into Nina s life Nina s son, Connor, takes to him but her daughter, Maggie, is sceptical and hostile, she doesn t buy into his good guy shtick and intuitively understands Reviews have been mixed on this onewhich always makes me curious to find out which side of the fence I will end up on It wasn t a favorite for me Glen Garrity went out fishing one morning and never returned His boat was floating, the deck covered in blood, but no body was found Did he drown Or did he run off with another woman, as a certain photo might suggest His wife, Nina, has moved on with Simon Fitch, a teacher from her daughter Maggie s middle school Nina is amazed that she has found such a thoughtful and caring new partner.
but Maggie sees a darker side of himNina and Maggie both narrate, though in this ARC, the chapters were not labeled as such, and I would be a paragraph or two into the chapter, before I would realize we had switched from one to the other, and I had to backtrack and reread from the top
There are times when a book calls to you and says why not take a chance and see how it goes For this reader, that chance paid off I was ready for the typical story about a missing husband and the man who comes to take his place But this book was deliciously devious and offered a few heart racing moments.
Poor Nina Garrity Not only is her husband missing, but it seems as if he was a two timing embezzler who had her fooled from the get go So much for wine and roses However Nina has a new man in her life, and although her daughter is bitterly opposed to this new match, Nina plows on ahead moving in with Mr Right and taking her two children with her.
There s a lot going on and most of it is basically lies and rumors that are sending rippling effects into Nina s family As the story continues, we find out, as usual, things we thought Reviews are all over the place for this and I get all of them.
I agree that it was a little slow to start but when it did It zooooomed and it was a really wild ride.
The writing is quite good The author expertly shows us how emotional abusers ramp up gradually making their target feel crazy the gaslighting in particular was so perfectly illustrated TW here, BTW The real star of this show, however, is the characterization of 13 year old Maggie She is everything Thank you to D.
J Palmer, St Martin s Press and NetGalley for giving me this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
