Book review: My Husband Next Door

In love and pregnant at 19, Ella marries the moody, yet successful artist Sebastian Montclair – much to her parents’ despair. Now raising two teenagers, life hasn’t been kind to her. Although Ella had the potential to be a successful artist, she works as a picture-book illustrator and lives on a farm, with her husband residing in a separate building on the property.

When he decides to move on, the rug is pulled out from under her and Ella is forced to face the reality she has avoided for years. It’s a cringeworthy, laugh-out-loud read, perfect for a laze at home.
