You should have known

When he was rude to the waiter

When he lied about his age

When he checked through your emails

When he flirted with your friend

When a mother at your son’s school was found dead…

Grace Sachs, marriage counsellor, has made a career out of advising women to trust their intuition when it comes to men. But how well does she know her own husband?

She is about to find out ,  and in the place of what she thought she knew, there will be a violent death, a disappearance and a chain of terrible revelations.

My Review

The story You should Have known is set in New York. It is about Grace Sachs who is a marriage counsellor. She has made a career out of advising women to trust their intuition when it comes to men. Grace even wrote a book all by herself about marriage being that she is a therapist.

Grace’s husband Jonathan, is a pediatric oncologist doctor bringing his expertise to children’s illness. With Jonathan too busy during the day at the hospital he finds it too turbulent in itself to be interrupted with trivial matters. Which means that his wife Grace can never phone him about anything that happens at home or at Henry’s school.

Jonathan and Grace have a twelve-year-old son Henry who has violin lessons at school.

Someone is found dead at Henry’s school which leads to a detective that needs to talk to Grace about this terrible death of someone from Henry’s school.

With Grace advising other women about men how well does Grace know her own husband?..

This is an unforgettable story of a woman in crisis.

Brilliantly observed and utterly compelling. You Should Have Known is an unforgettable and gripping.
