The Marriage Secret Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
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 whom I can see.
One fateful night, a young woman is found murdered, and Zach is a potential suspect. Turning toward 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.
A twist-filled psychological thriller from USA Today best-selling author Carey Baldwin. Fans of The Wife Between Us, The Marriage, and Gone Girl will be totally addicted to The Marriage Secret.

The story is a roundabout tale of betrayal, deception, murder and strategically keeping your enemies close.
A quick easy read where you get to discover what really happened, who’s half sane, and what happens when you are an accomplice to a crime that tethers you together, for better or for worse- until death do they part.
But here's the loose end: Is anybody else wondering about RUSSELL, the mostly-absent father of the husband, who demanded access to his baby granddaughter? Maybe Baldwin has a sequel in the works to address this issue?
Zach is a character who made my skin crawl from the moment he showed his true colors in chapter one.
The book starts with a hook and keeps the tension building as Holly struggles to extradite herself from her wreck of a marriage and possessive husband. Because the book is told in first person POV, it’s easy to connect with Holly. Uncertain of her footing at first, she gains strength as the story progresses, willing to do what is necessary to protect Jolene.
This is a book of mind games, not physical abuse. Zach and Holly dance around each other in a clever game of cat and mouse. Especially when Holly gets wind of a secret from Zach’s past and gains leverage to use against him. Then two of the med students he mentored are found dead and matters go from simmer to boil. When the end comes, it corkscrews in a series of impossible twists. I was thrilled to have a “lightbulb moment” before the author delivered the final reveal, but even so—wow!
This is a fantastic domestic thriller and one I would highly recommend to anyone who enjoys a slick and crafty read.
