Clever, highly contrived plot

Couldn't take a break. Such suspense. it is chick lit all right but bit, do the authors toy with you. Every cliché from every silly romance novel is, used to keep the reading light but the plot. That's the winner. I wouldn't have read it but as an audiobook, it was perfect for me.

Multiple tales or multiple twists...

One of those books where you look at how much is left and wonder what else could possibly happen next. And there was always more...

Brilliant Plot

This is a very well thought out plot which hence makes for a compelling reading. Even till the end one doesn't know who is between whom. And everything syncs with a jolt in the end.

Don’t Read the review read the book

So I read the reviews and ended up trying to predict what the other readers were taking about. The story is brilliant so don’t worry . Don’t bother with the reviews; they give away all the good stuff. Don’t spoil it for yourself.
it’s worth the read!!!

Loved it!!

I LOVED this book! There were so many twists and turns and I never saw a single one coming. I thought I knew where the story was going but around every corner was another surprise! The narrators were a fantastic fit. Great story, I would definitely read other books by this author. Highly recommend!

Wow! Lots of twists

There are a few twists and turns but easy listening. I nearly missed out on the epilogue which was another twist. Loved it. My daughter recommended it. Thanks Zoe

Just awful

What a waste of 9 hours, luckily I listen to audible when I’m busy doing other things or if have been very upset,
There is no twist whatsoever unless you count the weird unlikely ‘coincidence’ in the epilogue.
There was no character building, I didn’t like any of the people in the book except perhaps the very small part of long suffering Aunt Charlotte. The main character is dull, boring and weak. Her husband is a 2 dimensional person from the start. I couldn’t care less what happened to them. I only kept listening because the other reviews promised twists and turns..
Spoiler alert: it’s a very common story of slightly controlling man married weak woman, he pays for everything so she should be grateful. He tries to control her by making her think she’s going mad- but honestly it’s the weakest control storyline I’ve ever read or met in real life, I have known people in far more unhealthy relationships than thus book tried to credit.
During the conversation between the 2 authors they say how complicated the story is! No, it isn’t, it’s boring and very obvious.

Stunning Edge of The Seat Thriller

I absolutely loved this book and could not stop listening to it. There were so many twists none of which I anticipated and the final twist was a real surprise. This book was so well written the characters well defined and the dialogue sharp and interesting. I also enjoyed the narrator and felt she brought real life to the characters. I cannot wait for the next book from these authors.

Very Clever

This is the kind of book you just can’t stop listening to. Very gripping story from the start and then a great twist in the middle that sets the tone for the rest of the book. The twists don’t end there either! Really enjoyable!

Boring, one dimensional and so so dull.

If you want another pathetic story about a damsel in distress then this is the one for you! Women are powerless, insignificant and bland, as apparently we all are. This book honestly pissed me off more than anything I’ve read in a while. Please don’t waste your life.

Dreadful

I thought this was a terrible book - full of cliches and absolutely stuffed with awful name dropping of brands . I had no interest in any of the main characters as they all seemed so uninteresting . On top of all that I didn’t want to rate it with any stars at all but it wouldn’t let me ☹️

My first audible and I am not impressed. The robot voice reading it is too distracting. Are all books like this? If so I will cancel my membership absolutely unbelievable

It's Okay...

I got this for the reviews and honestly it wasn't as good as i had expected but i think that's more because i wanted a thriller and this is more a domestic relationships sort of book. It just wasn't as thrilling as i had hoped, but it was interesting enough that was intruiged to finish and find out how it ended so a 6/10 for me

Really good book but left me confused

Starting this book, I was thoroughly enjoying it. It was easy to understand and had a good storyline. Around chapter 25 I became really confused and unsure if I had misunderstood everything before it. I continued and it eventually all came together in the end but I really had to concentrate and think hard to follow some parts which is not an issue I have had with other books. Great storyline in the end.
