My daughter is getting married to the man of her dreams. But will she pay for it with her life?

My beautiful daughter Ellie walks down the aisle in her full-length lace dress, beaming with happiness. As she exchanges her vows with Kyle, who looks devastatingly handsome in his smart black suit, I hope this time will be different…

As confetti settles on the shoulders of the happy couple, I reassure myself that Kyle Beaumont is a charming, successful businessman. He’s so different to her ex-boyfriend – the man who tried to hurt my Ellie.

Except, only days after the ceremony, I discover a letter that makes my heart flip when I realise what my son-in-law is hiding. Ellie’s past is about to catch up with her, and I am certain my daughter is in danger.

But I’m her mother, and I’ll stop at nothing to protect her…

An utterly gripping psychological thriller with jaw-dropping twists from the number one bestselling author of The Doctor’s Wife. If you loved Behind Closed Doors and The Night She Disappeared, you’ll be hooked by My Daughter’s Husband.


Harvey, after five years in prison, has a revenge plot in mind. Harvey lost his son Daryll when his ex Ellie when killed him in self-defense during an attack. Now Ellie is about to marry Kyle, who portrays himself as a successful businessman. However, things are not what they seem and it just might be that Kyle has been lying and keeping secrets. 

Ellie's mother Dawn is more than suspicious about her daughter’s new husband Kyle as apparently he has been less than honest on more than one occasion. Bottom line, she feels that he is a liar. Between Dawn's suspicions and Daryll's father Harvey seeking revenge for his son's death, the young couple's chance at happiness just might be short lived.  

My Daughter's Husband was a thrilling, fast-paced read. The various points of view were done in first person, and they each had a narrator, Tamsin Kennard, Harrie Dobby and Adam Sims. This style of writing as well as the excellent narration made this book go really quickly.

This book follows My Daughter's Boyfriend by Daniel Hurst and takes place five years later. Anyone seeing a couple in love about to marry just might want the best for them, but there is a dark shadow looming with a nod to the previous book and characters, while lending itself to serious drama, done in a way that made this book impossible to put down.

Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.


Daniel Hurst writes psychological thrillers and loves to tell tales about unusual things happening to normal people. He has written all his life, making the progression from handing scribbled stories to his parents as a boy to writing full length novels in his thirties. He lives in the North West of England, returning to his roots after several years away exploring the world and garnering plenty of ideas for future books!
