The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty.
The most recent title: The husband's secret by Liane Moriarty was a bit of a surprise for many readers. When you glance at the cover art you see a lovely dried pink rose that is mid- explosion...which frankly evokes thoughts of this story having a large romantic bent. It does have a bit of that, but it instead focuses on the mysterious circumstances of the death of a young woman many years before and the secrets people have been keeping from each other since that time. The storyline follows several families and slowly teases out the truth of what happened. The characters are well developed and will make you ponder what you might have done had you been in their shoes...all-in-all an enjoyable read!
