Publisher's Summary

Your secrets. Her lies. 

Cassie stares at the woman on her doorstep in disbelief. Just months after losing her only son, Josh, here stands a stranger claiming to be Josh’s girlfriend. But it’s not only the woman Cassie is shocked by, it’s the baby nestled in Kim’s arms. Cassie’s grandchild. 

I know what you did. 

As Cassie tries to do what’s best for baby Samuel, she starts to receive threatening messages from someone from her past - someone Cassie has been hiding from for a long time. Cassie is frightened that her biggest secret is about to be revealed and she will lose everything, including her precious grandson. 

You took everything from me. Now you need to pay. 

As the messages get more sinister, Cassie realizes the person behind them knows every detail about her life and she fears that she is being watched. Could Kim be the link between Cassie and the mysterious messenger? And is she in danger now that she has welcomed this woman and her baby into her home? 

A truly gripping pause resister that will keep you listening well into the night, The New Girlfriend is for fans of The Girl on the Train, My Lovely Wife, and Gone Girl.

Good psychological thriller

This was a good book to listen to. Although I figured out quite a bit in this book, I did not see the twist at the end coming. I did go back and read the prologue when I was about halfway through the book to make sure I hadn't missed anything.
I enjoyed the narrator and the pace of the book.

Whoa!! What a ride that was!

Wow! This book had so many twists and turns I was dizzy by the end. The genre of this book didn’t say it was a mystery/thriller, but it was in my humble opinion. And a darned good one!

Well Done! Great characters!

I always admire an author who can make their heroine flawed to the point where the listener shouldn't like her, but does anyway.

We have a grieving mother who's lost her son to a tragic accident, a grieving step father who is trying to cope with his wife's grief and his own, and an unknown girl who shows up at the door claiming to have, in her hands, the baby of the deceased.

While one's head may start to go in several obvious directions (ie, 'She's lying!' 'Get a paternity test!'), Browne puts together a unique twist that surprises the reader.

I would have given 'The New Girlfriend' 5 stars had I not figured out the 'twist' halfway through the book. However, I suppose those of us with devious minds always expect the unexpected, and the worst from people!

Stunning Straight to the Very End

I am at an almost total loss for words. What a fantastic thrill-ride this story is! It does not go far enough to state that this book is entirely gripping and unexpected with a highly satisfying ending. Beyond that, I am not sure what to say without giving away the story which I will not do. This is simply a must-read for anyone who adores darkly twisted thrillers that are evenly paced and less than predictable. I thoroughly enjoy well crafted stories in which I cannot predict the plot twists and this one more than delivers! Excellent narration made it nearly impossible to stop listening. Utterly remarkable, start to finish!

Boring

I wish I understood why this book got such high reviews. I just found it completely boring. Kept hanging in and about midway through I just couldn’t take it any longer and gave up.

Amazing.

This was a great story. Right to the end you will think you have it fogured out...but you do not. Good author...good narrator...could translate to a movie ...but you'll state the hook is better.

Deliciously Deceptive!

Definitely holds your interest. While I was able to to figure out a few of the twist I was never certain. Good read. Worth the credit.

Original Story!

Finally this genre has an original story!!! Just when you think it’s predictable there’s another layer added that twist what you know about the characters.

WOW

I certainly didn't see that ending coming. One of the ones that drags on a good while, then grips on to the listener and holds your attention. Enjoyed the listen.
