Beautiful but evil
A different slant on crime
I can't. Usually we are waiting for a hero/detective/FBI etc to solve a murder or prevent a disaster. Here we are looking to perpetrate a crime with a beautifully selfish person in the lead. I liked it. It's good to be different.
If you are looking for an edge of your seat, up all night reading, suspenseful, then look no further. The characters were very real and likable, except Nicole. She is a true villain, only thinking of one thing, herself, which is a brave thing for an author to do to the main character. This is a great book.
I love the idea of this well written book. A lead character who is a villain that is part enchantress and part serial killer. The reader is repulsed by her sexually warped & manipulative behavior, but can't tear themselves away from reading the next chapter. Well done.

"Father Forgive Me"
"This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of Audiobook Blast."
This was a very strange audio book. It wasn't until I heard the author thank his wife and teenage daughter for the female perspective, that I understood. Also it could use some major editing, quite a few times the same word was used 3 times within 2 sentences. The plot rambled a bit but overall not bad for a first book.
The narration is very well done. It was easy to listen to.
"A good reading."
I really enjoyed this book . For this to be R.P. Wolff first novel he did a good job . Learning from Stephen King was a good ideal you learn from the best. The narrator was also good very entertaining to listen to. Once again very reading.
"This was an excellently twisted novel five stars"
This book was fantastic!!! The protagonist in the book was one of the most manipulative and conniving characters that I have ever read before. This was the authors first novel and in my opinion he hit it out of the park. The only thing that I would have changed would be the narrator, she read way too fast and it was very hard to distinguish some of the characters from the actual body of the book. I received this review copy from the author publisher or narrator
This book surprised me in several ways. First of all, I was impressed by the flow of the story. It was so easy to follow and understand what was happening. Even when the story was being told from a different character's perspective I had no confusion. Secondly, this was much more than simply the tale of a deceitful ex wife trying to kill her ex husband. There was so much more to the story and each new detail made the book that much better without being to over the top. The part about the priests surprised me and actually made me wonder if this type of thing really happens (most likely does). Having grown up in a Catholic family myself, any type of scandalous behavior like that intrigues me. For some reason the book seemed to have a bit of a slow start for me, but about halfway through i didn't want to stop listening. This was a well written, intelligent book that was well worth my time.
"She got Feminine Wiles and Knows How to Use Em"
This is a first effort. A diamond in the rough. That's not a negative necessarily. The situational elements are unique. There are some areas that very cleverly constructed. And some that might have been written differently. I listen to about twenty-five audio books a month, so I would rank it in the 50 percentile.
The main character is evil and a psychopath! That's interesting! The law enforcement people don't act very realistically sometimes, In my limited experience observing LEOs, investigations, prosecutors and defense lawyers. I am an avid True Crime reader, 48 Hours, etc. watcher, and have paralegal experience.
I read R.P. Wolff writes legal documents and had input from a lawyer while writing the book. So, there are some accurate representations here. Don't get me wrong.
I thought she did a decent job. More so than some of the negative reviews suggest. I picked up a few brief technical issues here and there. Overall, a good performance though!
How vicious Nicole the main... villainess was.
This was an ambitious first book. Make sure to listen in its entirety for how the book evolved!
Thanks for the opportunity to review it.
This review copy audiobook was provided by the author at no cost. I was glad to provide an honest review. Thanks, Mr. Wolff.
"Rough but weird enough to keep my interest!"
I read a lot for review and this turned out to be very interesting. Admittedly the narrator was awful, the editing poor, the story rough but somehow I still found Nicole sociopathic and narcissitic like a train wreck I couldn't turn away from. Beauty can't solve everything it seems! Could have been so much better but kept my interest. Look forward to more from this author!
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review . This was the authors first book and it definitely showed. The characters weren't developed at all , there wasn't any depth to the story and it came off very cheesy . I think possibly it would have been slightly better if I had read it myself vs listening to it. The narrator was really bad , not pausing at commas and pausing where she shouldn't , run on sentence reading , not to mention putting inflections on the wrong words in the sentences .I do hope the author tries again though , the story had an interesting concept . Good luck.
"I. Loved. This. Book!"
Yes I would. It was refreshing to hear a crime story with a different take than most others. I enjoyed it very much.
Yes. You never knew from one moment to the next what the main character was going to do.
Unfortunately, there were some annoying habits that almost made me stop listening to the book. The narrator has a hard time switching from a character to the narrator. For example, when a character in the book would ask a question, she stated "she asked?" Also, throughout the book there would be a strange sound, almost a groan, after sentences. The cadence was off, it sounded like someone struggling to read a book out loud in class.
She was a woman with a plan.
