Kate, Aubrey, and Jenny. They first met as college roommates and soon became inseparable, even though they are as different as three women can be. Twenty years later, one of them is standing at the edge of a bridge, and someone else is urging them to jump. How did things come to this? As the novel cuts back and forth between their college years and their adult years, you see the exact reasons why these women love and hate each other - but can feelings that strong lead to murder? Or will everyone assume, as is often the case, that it's always the husband?

    I already had the file from Net Galley, but I got the opportunity to start the hardcover early when I won it from Michele Campbell's Facebook page. Got some goodies with it too! Made my day.The title immediately attracted me to the book. The first half of the book isn't really a mystery or suspense novel. It's more about complicated relationships between young women beginning college. The three women certainly wouldn't have been friends if they hadn't been made roommates, but they're thrown together by chance. We have the rich and selfish wild child who charms everyone she meets, the extremely intelligent and independent hard worker, and the naive and impressionable one who grew up poor and is only there because of scholarships. They all have their strengths and weaknesses, and as a reader I switched back and forth loving and hating them. There's no characters too perfect to be real in this book. They're all fabulously flawed and therefore believable. Some may take issue with them being so unlikable a lot of the time, but I thought it made it more interesting.In the second half of the book, something tragic had happened. Someone is dead, and someone we met in the first half may have done it. This half is more suspenseful. It takes place about twenty years after the first, and those college girls are now all grown and married. This half introduces some interesting new characters as well. Is it always the husband, or has years of turmulous friendship filled with jealousy and betrayal held together by shared secrets resulted in murder?I received an ARC of this novel from Net Galley and St. Martin's Press, thank you! My review is honest and unbiased.

    I really liked this book , the three women at the forefront have such different personalities and backgrounds and at times they really hate each other . Aubrey , kate and Jenny room together at University and you get parts of the story from all their points of view which I really liked . All three are flawed and not particularly likeable . Something terrible that happened while they were at college comes back with serious consequences for one of the women . A really good read and I raced through it and was certainly surprised at the climax ! Thank you to Natgalley and St Martins Press for the opportunity to read this for an honest review

    *Book provided by the publisher on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*I was very curious about this book and also intrigued when I read the blurb. Unfortunately, I struggled a lot with this book.We get to know Kate, Aubrey and Jenny when they are college roommates. The three girls are very different from each other, but a friendship builds between them. I couldn’t understand their friendship, because of certain things, which happened between them, but oh well. A lot of intense things happens during their college time and it’s not different twenty years later.They are all married now, they have kids and a job. Are they happy though?! I was actually really surprised to see who they married and what they do now. They are still friends and there is a lot of mystery around them. One of them is having an affair with one of the husbands and when something terrible happens they police is on their trail.The mystery around the story and the secrets kept me with the book. I wanted to find out the truth. I had to question a lot of decisions and actions throughout the book though. Another thing I struggled with was the back and forth change between their college lives and their adult lives. The pace of the book seems slow, the storyline is uneven and I just didn’t like the characters, they all had something unlikable.The story behind the book is great, but it just didn’t work for me like that, I was glad when it was over.

    This book was a strange one for me. I enjoyed the storyline and thought that the plot was good overall. But it is aimed at readers who love suspense and to me, this is a mistake. Having read a previous review from the super-talented book-blogger Chelsea (thesuspenseisthrillingme.com) where Chelsea had stated that it might be aimed at the wrong market, I have to say that I wholeheartedly agree. While there are moments of suspense in this novel, there is not enough for avid readers of this genre, in my opinion, and for me, IT'S ALWAYS THE HUSBAND by Michele Campbell is more general fiction with some dramatic flair, than suspense.Meeting in college, Jenny, Kate, and Aubrey form a fast friendship even though they are all completely different from each other. Fast forward twenty years and one friend is telling another to jump off a bridge. The story of their complicated and complex relationship unfolds as the narrative moves from past to present, which I always enjoy as it keeps the pace moving along. The characters in this book are not particularly likeable but that doesn't stop you from wanting to understand what is happening between them. I enjoyed the writing style and the twists and turns in the plot, and the ending was a surprise, which is always welcome. IT'S ALWAYS THE HUSBAND by Michele Campbell is a solid story for general fiction fans.*I voluntarily reviewed this book from Netgalley.com
