Description

A twisty, compelling new audiobook about one woman's complicated relationship with her mother-in-law that ends in death....

From the moment Lucy met her husband's mother, she knew she wasn’t the wife Diana had envisioned for her perfect son. Exquisitely polite, friendly, and always generous, Diana nonetheless kept Lucy at arm’s length despite her desperate attempts to win her over. And as a pillar in the community, an advocate for female refugees, and a woman happily married for decades, no one had a bad word to say about Diana...except Lucy. 

That was five years ago.

Now, Diana is dead, a suicide note found near her body claiming that she no longer wanted to live because of the cancer wreaking havoc inside her body.  

But the autopsy finds no cancer. It does find traces of poison, and evidence of suffocation. 

Who could possibly want Diana dead? 

Why was her will changed at the 11th hour to disinherit both of her children and their spouses? And what does it mean that Lucy isn’t exactly sad she’s gone?  

Fractured relationships and deep family secrets grow more compelling with every chapter in this twisty, captivating new audiobook from Sally Hepworth.

what just happened?

I can't believe the type of stories that actually get published! If this was not a audiobook I would have torn the book up 3 chapters in

great characters

This was a great easy to listen to book. Not a ton of characters to try and keep up with and the story flowed great. Part mystery, part heartache. Characters are very relatable, especially Lucy.

Not really a mystery/thriller, but VERY good!

A few random opinions:
The sample doesn't do this book or narrator justice .
Although I bought it because I am a lover of psychological thrillers and mysteries , and to me this wasn't really either one, it was so good, and had such great character development that I loved it .
And last but not least, if I had realized sooner that this was from the same author as "the things we keep" (I think that's the title of the Alzheimer's story), I probably would not have bought it, because I really didn't enjoy that listen , but to me, this is a much better story.
I highly recommend this book for lovers of really good books and great characters , regardless of genre

Best book I’ve read in a long while!

This book was really good! I listened to it in a day. Lots of believable twists and turns. I loathe the books I’ve read that focus on a twist so much that it goes to the completely implausible. This one is interesting in the family dynamics. The characters are all flawed some more than others. I didn’t hate any of the characters like some I have read/heard. But this one was great! Definitely worth a credit. Also the narrator was wonderful too!

Could not put down

I love it when I find a book that is so hard to put down and I can get wrapped up in the characters. Highly recommend this book.

Excellent story & narrator

Very enjoyable and easy to follow while multi-tasking - editing photos, cleaning, laundry, etc. I really like this narrator because she is so good that I’m not distracted by shifts in characters; the transitions flow naturally. Would definitely read again.

OK read.

Unless I missed something it never said how Diana got her money. Started out well enough, ending just ok.

"Who Done It?!"

A classic case, in question of "who done it" written wonderfully! Every suspect had the moment in point as I read/listened, and said "ohhh, it was..." but then I was wrong, lol. Literally kept me guessing till the end. Good book!

Wow!

Thank you so much to the wonderful author. This may be one of my top all time favorite audiobooks, and I have listened to many as I drive alot for work. I think this story will stay with me a long time. It amazed me how my perception of each character changed as the story unfolded. And the narrator did just a wonderful job with the Diana character. I pictured her as the actor who played the mother in law in the movie Gone Girl. Also, the Australian accent is so pleasant to listen to. So thank you again. I know I will listen to it again some day, and as soon as I'm done writing this review I plan to check out your other books! I cannot recommended this engaging story enough.
