      "If you liked Gone Girl, this is definitely the next book you should be picking up! There is a reason that it is so highly acclaimed, with the prestigious title of number 1 best seller in New York Times! Without being a continuation, I don't think a Gone Girl fan could find themselves any happier than I have been with The Husband's Secret!

      "I didn't get a Gone Girl feeling from this book as I didn't really feel it was that thrilling or suspenseful. It really just reminded me of a few movies I've seen except it wasn't as succinct or entertaining. The main character is a little grating to me and one dimensional. I just thought it was okay."

      "I wanted to love this book, I really did. The writing's not bad, and the premise of a psychic being the key to a criminal investigation is a classic. The thing that's a little hard to buy is the idea that the murderer is controlling the mind of the clairvoyant doing the investigating. It's worth reading if you want to kill some time, but it's certainly not a great work of literature."
