Don't waste your credit

This book is 90% soap opera and 10% thriller. I forced myself to finish listening.

From the beginning to the end, this author captured my attention and held it all the way through. Definitely worth the money. The presentation by the narrator put this into my top favorite books. Loved it!!! 😀😀😀

The Mistake

The story was very intriguing emotionally-charged and psychologically thrilling. I absolutely loved it. delightfully performed skillfully written 5 * overall rating. Sheryl Browne has a new bubbling fan. I can't wait to read the Babysister.
Tamsin Kennard did very well on the narrative portion. 😍

What did I just listen too

The MOST implausible and insipid book I’ve listened to in quite awhile. Warning: SPOILERS AHEAD!!! The main characters undergo a series of ridiculous tragedies and calamities....in the matter of a few days one of the main characters experiences the loss of his infant son, discovers his wife had an affair and that his daughter may not be his, has said daughter kidnapped and drugged, finds out his wife was raped, is betrayed by his SIL, gets stabbed, oh and did I forget to mention that his parents and sister were all murdered? Just pure drivel.

Awesome!! Absolutely love it!

I absolutely love this book. Great story. Perfectly flawed characters. I hurt so badly for Justin. I wanted to slap Alicia. I wanted to ground Sophie. I wanted to beat the heck out of Jess. And I wanted to kill Paul. The only thing I see wrong with this book is that I don’t consider it a psychological thriller. But I don’t care what genre it’s in, I highly recommend it.

Jumping to Conclusions

The thing that bothers me more than anything else in this story is that the characters all jump to an unfounded conclusion about the paternity of the daughter. All of the characters act the way they do in the story because of that assumption, which makes me want to scream. Find out for sure the paternity of the child and then the actions make more sense, but are way out bounds if there is no proof of the paternity. This is such a basic flaw in this story that it ruined the whole story for me.

Slow, uninteresting, and unrealistic in so may ways.

The narrator did a good job with a book that was very unbelievable and boring. People don’t get knifed in the chest (with a twist) and then jump out of their hospital bed the next day and conduct themselves as though it never happened. None of the relationships in the story nor the reactions of any if the characters were realistic - and nit even entertaining. Waste of time spent listening to this attempted psychological thriller.

Predictable But Still Entertaining

I was a big fan of The Second Wife, so I anticipated this one despite the poor reviews. Turns out they were mostly on target. But sometimes I just need a mindless book to listen to, where I don't have to work to keep up with what's going on. This certainly fulfilled that.

Depressing and lame

Boring, ultimately depressing and predictable. A total let down- love this author otherwise! Don’t waste your credits on this one.
