A completely unputdownable and twist-filled psychological thriller from USA Today bestselling author Carey Baldwin.


He married me despite my darkest secret. But am I safe now that I know his?


From the outside, my marriage to Zach was perfect: dream home, a perfect baby girl and passionate, all-consuming love. When we met, I confessed my darkest secret to him and he never judged me for it. Instead, he vowed to always protect me whatever the cost.


But as I cradle my gorgeous baby, I have to accept that the husband who used to be my everything, has changed. At first it was little things: expecting me to keep to a strict schedule, picking out my clothes for me. Now, he controls every aspect of my life: from how much money I have, to when I leave the house and who I can see.


One fateful night, a young woman is found murdered and Zach is a potential suspect. Turning towards me, a look of warmth returning to his eyes, he swears he’s innocent, and I realize there is only one solution. If I agree to be his alibi, he will keep my secret and our daughter can grow up in a loving home. In that moment, I do what any faithful wife would do: I stand by him.


But I know deep down, only one of us will make it out of this marriage alive.


Fans of The Wife Between Us, The Marriage and Gone Girl will be totally addicted to The Marriage Secret.
