The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty

From Goodreads:

At the heart of The Husband’s Secret is a letter that’s not meant to be read

My darling Cecilia, if you’re reading this, then I’ve died...

Imagine that your husband wrote you a letter, to be opened after his death. Imagine, too, that the letter contains his deepest, darkest secret—something with the potential to destroy not just the life you built together, but the lives of others as well. Imagine, then, that you stumble across that letter while your husband is still very much alive. . . .
Cecilia Fitzpatrick has achieved it all—she’s an incredibly successful businesswoman, a pillar of her small community, and a devoted wife and mother. Her life is as orderly and spotless as her home. But that letter is about to change everything, and not just for her: Rachel and Tess barely know Cecilia—or each other—but they too are about to feel the earth-shattering repercussions of her husband’s secret.

I really liked this book. (In fact, I've already read another one by this author: Truly Madly Guilty.)
I'm embarrassed that I didn't guess the "secret." Once I read it, I was like, "Of course!" But it came as a surprise, which was nice.
I liked how she told the story from so many different perspectives. I liked the end, where she tells us things that actually happen later, and things that might have happened later.
I didn't think I was going to like what Tess ultimately decided--you could see where she was heading--but at the end it worked for me after all. I don't think I would have decided that, but it was believable that she did.
