My Husband Next Door, Catherine Alliott

My Husband Next Door Opening Line: The first time I knew I was in any sort of trouble was this time last year, when I ran out of church, disastrous flowers in my hands, straight into Ludo.

My Husband Next Door

This is a love story, of a husband and a wife, their lovers and what it takes to make a marriage work. Ella and Sebastian need to work their way through the tumbled arrangement of their marriage, and how love is defined. Intertwined with their love affair is the trials and tribulations of Ella’s parents’ marriage, her sister’s relationship and the odd people who find themselves being a part of Ella’s life.

I normally do not stop reading a book half way through, but with this book I did. We went overseas when I was mid way through this book and when we came back, I was mid way through another book. I only read a chapter a night so it should have taken me less than a month to read. The nice thing was I picked up this book after a 3 week break and immediately fell back into it. Catherine Alliott writes well and the rhythm of this book is fantastic. It is an easy read and I will look out for more of her books.

First published in the Penguin Group in 2013

ISBN 978-0-141-04780-5

Paperback – 470 pages

Disclosure: I was sent the book to review by Penguin Books South Africa. I was not required to write a positive review. This post is in line with my blogging policy.

  1. I do enjoy these grown-up romance novels. I was never really one for the love-at-first-sight magic storyline, but books that examine the complexity of real relationships are far more interesting to me 🙂

  4. I usually have a few books going at the same time so it’s nice to be able to fall back into them when you pick them up again! 😀
