Husband Material by Emily Belden #Review #Contemporary #Grief #Detective

 

Title: Husband Material

Author: Emily Belden

 

 

My Review:

More than five years after the untimely death of her beloved husband, twenty-nine year old Charlotte Rosen is living on the opposite side of the US, with people who are totally unaware of the tragedy in her past. Well, that’s true until her late husband’s ashes are delivered to her. This twist of fate has her needing to reconsider events, reconnect with her in laws and to discover secrets that had been kept from her. Facing up again to her loss, reconnecting with people who knew her husband and having to share about him with her new life will change things forever – but will it be for better or worse?

This is a moving story as Charlotte has tried to ensure she never has to suffer grief again by cocooning herself in a world of acquaintances and coding, never taking risks and only really sharing her love with her dog. The delivery of her husband’s ashes is the trigger for turmoil as those barriers she’s built around herself come crumbling down. As she uncovers secrets that have been kept from her, she questions her memories of her husband, the actions of those who used to be close to them both and her own choices. It is a story where mysteries unfold, keeping you turning the pages wondering what she’ll discover next. It is a story of discovering the real motives of others, finding your assumptions aren’t always right – even when the algorithms may predict otherwise!

I requested and was gifted a copy of this book via NetGalley and this is my honest review after choosing to read it.
