We'll meet at the library to discuss The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty.

Cecilia, married mother of three, stumbles across an envelope from her husband, addressed to her, “to be opened only in the event of my death.” Tess discovers that her husband and her cousin are in love and are really sorry to hurt her, but what can they do? The lives of all three collide when they meet again at the Catholic school they attended as children. This is domestic drama at its best, and includes some laugh-out-loud moments.
