    Satisfying whodunit that left me stunned

    This book follows three roommates at Carlisle College, an Ivy League school in Belle River, New Hampshire. Aubrey, Kate, and Jenny are as different as three girls could possibly be but they become inseparable. The beginning of the book tracks their disastrous freshman year at Carlisle, with drugs, sex, alcohol, and a bridge playing important roles. The scenes of college life indicate that the author is familiar with the Ivy League(Indeed, she is a graduate of Harvard). I felt like I was there. Perhaps because my college years were a happy time, I enjoyed this. The first half seems a little slow but I thought this was necessary to develop the characters and lay the groundwork for the second half, set twenty years later. As the girls noted, your freshman roommates often remain your friends for life. The future finds all three friends married and living in Belle River but things are not always idyllic there. The second half of the book moves quickly and has many twists and turns. Every time I thought I knew whodunit, another curveball was thrown my way. The ending came as a total surprise to me and left me sitting staring into space and pondering it all. I found this to be a most satisfying book.

    It's Always the Husband

    Despite what seemed like a slow start, this story was quite engrossing and had a few surprising twists and turns.

    It's Always The Husband

    I enjoyed the book. It was a bit predictable, in that 3 couples who have known each other for so many yesrs, would intertwine again in the same college town years later, and the result is an affair and a murder, but it was good.

    Truly enjoyed it

    It's sometimes hard to follow a book that jumps from character to character and following a timeline that isn't consecutive - but the characters, the feelings and the plot were enjoyed so much. I really loved this book. Wish it didn't end - but loved the twists and turns as it came to a conclusion...
