Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of The Secrets of Us and The Best of Friends comes a novella of deceit, desperation, and how one little mistake can unravel a life.

When overwhelmed stay-at-home mom Alexis finds herself at odds with her husband after she’s charged with a DUI, she is given one chance to get her family back: complete AA and admit her faults. The problem is, she’s never had a drinking problem and has no idea what caused the blackout that led to her arrest. Still, she’s committed to working through the program, if that’s what it takes to be reunited with her two young children. But when she connects with a new friend, Farrah - a confident, successful powerhouse of a woman Alexis can’t help but idolize - she’s empowered to take a closer look at her husband’s role in her downfall. What she finds shocks her to her core, quickly spiraling into something more sinister than she ever imagined.

Twists and turns

This was my first book by Lucinda Berry and I understand why so many recommended her. This is a short novella that is packed with of twists and turns. Definitely won’t be my last book from her.

Good, maybe rushed

This book was great for the first 11 chapters. I had a prediction, but it turned out to be incorrect (which I like). But I felt the ending was a bit rushed. I think one more chapter would have helped

Good

It was a really nice quick story. As mentioned previously by others, maybe a little bit rushed. Good listen though.

Absolutely Enjoyed

This was a quick little one that I absolutely enjoyed. The twists and turns though sometimes a little predictable left me going WOWWWW and making me think of how I would react in the situation.
One little mistake almost ruined a woman's life but it was great to listen to the path she took along the way.

If you are looking for just a quick something to pass the time - this one I would definitely recommend.

So many questions left

The ending took a sudden turn and didn’t answer any of the questions that should have been answered. It’s a great book but it has no real ending simply a beginning and a middle no conclusion whatsoever. Did she get her kids back? Was Will ever arrested? What about all the things she sold, did Jared get angry about that???? None of the answers for these are in the book yet they’re basically the questions you wonder about throughout the whole book. Overall great, book terrible ending.

Rushed Ending

This freebie on audible was entertaining. Not my usual genre.

Ending was too rushed, we do not know what happened with her money or her kids, this was left unresolved.

Gripping!

This was the first time reading a work by this author, and although it’s just a novella, I was very pleased.
Available on Audible at no extra charge for subscribers.
The narration is excellent, although the voice is a bit annoying, but perfectly fit for the main character who is extremely naive.
The storyline was very well executed, even if a bit predictable or not so original, and I was gripped by curiosity and I did not put down until reaching the conclusion.
The main’s character desperation felt very real and believable.
It’s a drama around deceit.
I was completely entertained, hence my ratings.
I’m looking forward to reading a full novel.
