It’s Always the Husband, Michele Campbell

A sketched woman looks down to the right side of the cover. There is water imposed over her, with a bridge over her coming from the left

Three college roommates who couldn’t be further apart come together, sharing their freshman dorm. As Aubrey settles into an entirely new and exciting life, Kate distances herself through her magnetism. Jenny keeps both of them with their heads just below the clouds. It works well for this trio. But as Campbell is known to do, we start the book with someone dying. So who has died, and how did we get there? Through this trio’s past and present lives, we find out through Campbell’s creative storytelling.

It’s hard to tell who to trust in this. Everyone has secrets, and everyone is just trying to get to the top. It makes it hard to root for anyone, and you don’t have to, to enjoy the story. When you think you have things figured out, Campbell reminds you she’s in charge and throws you another twist. Like others, I expected a bit more from the ending, but it didn’t deter my enjoyment of this book.

It’s Always the Husband is available on Amazon, Bookshop, and B&N.

About the Book:

Kate, Aubrey, and Jenny first met as college roommates and soon became inseparable, despite being as different as three women can be. Kate was beautiful, wild, wealthy, and damaged. Aubrey, on financial aid, came from a broken home, and wanted more than anything to distance herself from her past. And Jenny was a striver—brilliant, ambitious, and determined to succeed. As an unlikely friendship formed, the three of them swore they would always be there for each other.

But twenty years later, one of them is standing at the edge of a bridge, and someone is urging her to jump.

How did it come to this?
Kate married the gorgeous party boy, Aubrey married up, and Jenny married the boy next door. But how can these three women love and hate each other? Can feelings this strong lead to murder? When one of them dies under mysterious circumstances, will everyone assume, as is often the case, that it’s always the husband?

A suspenseful, absorbing novel that examines the complexities of friendship, It’s Always the Husband will keep readers guessing right up to its shocking conclusion.
