What would you do if you met your soul mate, but you were already married?
In The Good Enough Husband, Sylvie Fox delivers a riveting story about a woman who refuses to let her past define her future.
For years, Hannah Morrison Keesling’s marriage to Michael was good enough. Then she wakes up one morning and it isn’t. Taking her puppy Cody along, Hannah drives north to put distance between herself and her past. Planning to go as far as her SUV will take her, she hast to stop on the Lost Coast when her dog gets sick. There she meets small town veterinarian Ben Cooper.
Ben is the man Hannah wishes she had met first. He’s perfect for her, but gun shy because he’s been lied to before and vows not to be betrayed again. Hannah leaves Michael and moves to Ben’s rural town to pursue a future with the man she knows is her soul mate. But Michael won’t let go so easily. Forced to make a decision between the man she chose and the man she loves, Hannah soon realizes that her choices will define everyone else’s consequences.
I was completely intrigued by the synopsis. I mean we have a woman that decides “good enough” isn’t just cutting it anymore and decides to do whatever she seems fit to find happiness. In finding her happiness, Hannah does things that some people will not agree with but what it boils down to is that it is her life to lead.
It was hard not to feel sorry for the two men (Michael and Ben) in Hannah’s life. There were times when Hannah was completely unlikable but I could understand her reasoning. I would have rated this book higher but the ending ruined it. It just sorta stopped without explanation. Overall, this book was quite enjoyable. It held my attention and had plenty of drama. I am glad that I picked up The Good Enough Husband but I just wished it had a more complete ending.
