The story centres around two families and their brothers. For Finn and Joe the move to Ireland will be a fresh start after their whirlwind romance and marriage. With the fresh start comes exciting new opportunities for both of them. Advertising for Joe and Finn is making a name for himself in television.
For the other couple, Ali and Max it seems like all their dreams are coming true, in the form of a successful bakery.
However things start to take a turn for the worse. Finn is shattered when he loses his role in a gritty crime drama. He becomes so unhappy that Joe begins to fear for him and the state of their marriage.]
At the same time things also go downward for Ali and Max. An accident at the bakery shocks them both to the core. The brothers have never gotten on well and the blame is laid Finns doorstep.
The writing here was really excellent.I could really feel the simmering tensions between the two families as the accusations fly back and forth. The secrets that were once buried deep are slowly brought to the surface. It really drew me in and compelled me to keep turning the pages.
As both families discover unknown truths, feeling of love and trust are really tested. Can they over come these revelations? You'll have to read to find out!
I loved the fact that A husbands confession wasn't just your average romance novel. It was full of drama and really kept me hooked. I'm finding it hard to think of anyone who wouldn't enjoy this book. Zoe Miller is certainly going on my "one to watch" list.
The story is set in Dublin, Ireland and is all about the Kennedy brothers Max and Finn and their two families.
The prologue sets you up for what you can kind of expect of the rest of the book storyline-wise. However it’s not quite as simple as you might think at first because the character in the prologue is unidentified so the element of mystery is imbedded into the story right from the beginning. That really sets the tone for the rest of the story as I felt like I was always guessing what was going to happen next, and then re-evaluating my first guess after new information came to light.
The story is told in two parts. The first part, takes place before the event described in the prologue and the second part is after that event. The characters take it in turns to narrate the story which kept the story telling fresh and I felt like it involved you more as a reader because you were getting to know all of the sides to the one story. Some parts of the story come from the children of the family which adds an innocence to what is quite a distressing storyline and there are some other scenes included where the narrator is unidentified keeping the air of mystery present throughout.
There are some parts of the story which give you some insight into past of the two families. These are interspersed throughout the character’s present day lives which added a depth to the story which wouldn’t have existed without the build-up these insights give you.Read more ›
In essence the book is all about appearances and things not being so rosy on the inside as everything appears on the outside because of twisted family lives and their secrets.
One of the main plotlines is set against a 9/11 backdrop and was used as some kind of justification for certain character's actions which I was unsure of as I was reading. But as I'm sitting here writing this..actually, you know, I didn't like that. Thousands of people died that day and I wasn't keen on that being used as a reason, an excuse to cheat but others may hold a different perspective on that but it irritated me.
In all honesty, I just got bored of all the perfect family talk and the perfect relationship, it was just too over the top, ok I get it, they're in love but how many times does it have to be repeated. The mystery surrounding the hit and run was far more interesting and I felt this could have been a much better story had the rest not been so overly schmaltzy but then once the truth was truth was out it just felt watered down and disappointing. I didn't like the fact that characters accepted what their partners had done just to keep face and lifestyles.
Oh well, you can't like everything you read! If you liked The Accident by C.L Taylor then this might be for you.
