Publisher's Summary

Louise Bridges has the perfect life.

A loving husband, Patrick. Two adorable children. A comfortable home.

So when PC Becca Holt arrives to break the news that Patrick has been killed in an accident, she thinks Louise’s perfect world is about to collapse around her.

But Louise doesn’t react in the way Becca would expect her to on hearing of her husband’s death. And there are only three plates set out for dinner, as if Louise already knew Patrick wouldn’t be home that night....

The more Becca digs, the more secrets she uncovers in the Bridges’ marriage - and the more she wonders just how far Louise would go to get what she wants....

Is Louise a loving wife - or a cold-hearted killer?

Overly long story tolerable by excellent narration

The story was initially gripping, but then, it became repetitive, and it droned on and on. The excellent narration kept me interested but barely.

Psychological Perfection

While this book may not be a fit for everyone, I especially enjoy psychological thrillers. It is a true challenge for a writer to get into the minds of his or her characters. Why do people behave as they do?. I don't want to just read a decent murder mystery. I want to know why there are murderers and what makes a person a victim. I think the narrator has the perfect voice as she narrates what is going on in the psychopath's mind. I recommend this Audible book!

A while to get there...

Seemed like the first 80% of the book was one repetitive (SUPER repetitive) prose, and then finally toward the end there was some action. It was decent, but if you’re expecting a thriller, this is not it. Long, redundant story only to arrive at a mediocre closing of the story.

Fantastic Narration

I listen to a lot of audio books, this was one that the narration made the story. Powerful acting, yes acting. The women who played the main character should certainly win an Academy award for best actress. No kidding. I would definitely recommend this book.

The book is pretty good, the one narrator amazing

As the title says the story is pretty good... a bit slow at times but you get curious by the middle. The narration of Louise however, was SO GOOD!! I’m going to try & find other books she’s done. I’ve listen to loads of books and she was the best yet by far

The Perfect widow has some very slow spots but has a surprise ending. Psychological mystery.

Best I've listened to in awhile.

This book turned out to be much different than expected. The main character, wife then widow, is completely wrapped up in herself. I didn't like her but the story was so well written and performed that I kept listening. Glad I did. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
