Laura Cavendish can't wait to meet the woman who's won her son's affection. Despite a successful career in television and a long, prosperous marriage, Laura's world revolves around kind, talented Daniel. She pictures his new girlfriend, Cherry, becoming a close friend and confidante ...one day, even a daughter-in-law. But although Cherry is beautiful and amiable, Laura can't warm to her. There's something about the possessive way she touches Daniel, the little lies Laura detects. Cherry seems to resent Laura, driving a wedge between mother and son - until one day Daniel is injured.

there are so many things wrong with this audiobook. First the reader is terrible! Recording itself repeats a few times, there's a lot of obvious inserted words after the fact, and Henrietta abruptly stops after each sentence and takes a pause. It makes for a very choppy, unnatural read. Then there's the story itself, the ending is so stumped. It just ends with no follow-through. You've built a relationship with these characters but you're forced to part with them with no idea of where they ended up. I want my money back.

For the first time in all the years I've listened to audiobooks, I found myself skipping ahead. The bulk of the story was excruciating because it is just so unrealistic. No person in real life will allow so many things to be done to them without saying a word.

Finn and Layla are young, in love, and on vacation. They’re driving along the highway when Finn decides to stop at a service station to use the restroom. He hops out of the car, locks the doors behind him, and goes inside. When he returns Layla is gone - never to be seen again. That is the story Finn told to the police. But it is not the whole story.

What an absurd ending. Well written, can't deny that, but the story is just so ridiculous at the end that you feel angry for having wasted your time.

Anna Fox lives alone - a recluse in her New York City home, unable to venture outside. She spends her day drinking wine (maybe too much), watching old movies, recalling happier times...and spying on her neighbors. Then the Russells move into the house across the way: a father, mother, their teenaged son. The perfect family. But when Anna, gazing out her window one night, sees something she shouldn't, her world begins to crumble. And its shocking secrets are laid bare.

The end was exciting but everything before it was just fluff. There are many better books out there.
