Book Review: The Ex-Husband By Karen Hamilton

The Ex-Husband Book Review Header

If you’re looking for a book that’ll transport you to the tropics during these winter months, while also keeping you on the edge of your seat, this book is for you! Karen Hamilton’s The Ex-Husband is a juicy, twisting thriller largely set in the sunny Caribbean.

Right away, our main character, Charlotte, comes across as slightly unreliable, yet relatable as a working woman. She was married to Sam, a mystifying man who’s been relentlessly calling and messaging Charlotte, even though they’ve split up. It’s clear something dark happened between them, and this was no ordinary relationship. And the more we learn about Charlotte and Sam’s past, the more distrust we have in even Charlotte. And then, Sam goes missing and is presumed dead.

Meanwhile, Charlotte takes a new job aboard a luxury yacht, and suddenly, her past seems to be furiously catching up with her. The suspense and tension built through her relationships with the other people on the yacht left us questioning who had good intentions and who was out to get her. Someone aboard the yacht knows all about her past with Sam and what they did. As threats build up and Charlotte becomes more paranoid, the past timeline interspersed with the present chapters reveals much more about Charlotte and Sam.

It’s safe to say this story left us guessing the whole time! The alternating timelines created tension as more details were revealed that affected the present, and Charlotte as a protagonist was interesting to unravel. She was layered and flawed, which is always refreshing. Plus, the wide cast of characters on the yacht gave us so many theories as we read, and each one was unique.

If you love a good mystery and are dreaming of a tropical locale right about now, pick up The Ex-Husband! You can order a copy here.
