Publisher's Summary

Newlywed Jade Westmore has finally found her forever in husband Wells, a charming, successful, and recently divorced architect—only there’s one caveat: behind the gates of their elysian estate, hidden from street view in the caretaker’s cottage … lives Wells’s first wife, Sylvie.

Three years ago, the original Mrs. Westmore suffered a nervous breakdown—and hasn’t uttered a sound since. Not a physician, psychologist, or world-renown specialist has been able to elicit so much as a word from the silent woman … until now.

On an ordinary Tuesday while Wells was away—despite instructions to never disturb the fragile woman—Jade visited her isolated predecessor bearing a peace offering: a bouquet of white lilies. Only she wasn’t expecting Sylvie to have something for her as well: a slip of torn notebook paper with a single word scrawled in shaky black ink.

That word? Run.

Predictable

I have to agree with the review saying it's a bit boring. I hate leaving poor reviews when the author has spent so much time on something but this book was (in my opinion) very predictable and lazy. I didn't find it suspenseful or gripping at all. The narrator was great and easy to listen to at least though!

I am definitely going to look for more books by this author. I loved his the story progressed and the shocking revelations. It was a shocking ending and I loved the Epilogue. Absolutely will recommend this book. Definitely worth a Credit but so thank Audibles Plus for including it.

Great Twists!

I absolutely loved this book! I do a lot of reading of a lot of different authors. This one took me on a ride that I wasn't expecting. The characters were complex and human. The story took twists and turns that where not expected. This is simply a great read!

The twists and turns were amazing

Just when I thought I had it all figured out Minka Kent would throw another curve. I loved it! Loved the narration. She has a new fan. Can’t wait to read the others.

Boring

The performance was great however the book itself was boring.
The author goes on and on about things that don't matter to the story.
I had to keep fast forwarding.

Great story, mediocre ending

This story kept me engaged and listening. But the ending fell flat. For the amount of suspense it had throughout, I felt it deserved a better ending/whodunnit

Great Triller, a keeper

In the beginning the story seems predictable, but the twist and turns keeps you on edge.

Starts well, ends up rushed

Enjoyed the story until about the last 4 chapters. It felt rushed and like all aspects of the story were written the easiest way possible. I'd say it's still worth a listen, but just don't get your hopes up for a terribly exciting ending.
