Publisher's Summary

Kate is a rapidly rising star of the trauma therapy world - London based, shy, uptight, and with an air of aloofness that masks a deep sense of insecurity.

When she has to relocate her "Traumatology for the 21st Century" conference to Horton Hill "Deluxe" Hotel and Conference Centre in the heart of industrial West Yorkshire, she is understandably horrified by the state of the place.

Horton Hill is a mess. The car park looks like the surface of the moon. The pool is a health hazard. And the staff seem incapable of speaking intelligible English.

When Naz, the hotel's "Hospitality Assistant" finds Kate struggling with her luggage, she instantly stops to help. Bright, enthusiastic and hard-working, she is drawn to Kate's barely concealed vulnerability, and desperately wants to make a good impression on the harassed, but undeniably attractive conference organizer.

Despite her natural caution, as the weekend progresses, Kate finds herself warming to Naz's kindness and obvious interest in her.

But she is unaware that her carefully constructed life back in London is starting to unravel.

And when she finds herself accused of a terrible crime, Kate discovers that sometimes friendship and love can be found in the most unlikely of places.

    I love audio books and listening to them while I draw or paint. They help to level me and take away the stress while drawing.

    Story
    "Not what I expected"

    Initially the story seemed to be purely an f/f romance. But about halfway through the story changed to be a murder mystery. The writing style unconventional, and in some cases there were a lot of point of view changes, and many new characters were introduced when the mystery part starts, here also the main character role changes. The tale itself is captivating, and I like all the different characters and their backgrounds, these are very well developed. The narrator Anne Day-Jones does a great job brining them to life, Russian to northern accents and all. The author brings her humour and observations specific to the UK to the prose which is a nice change, and this in itself adds a lot of extra substance. I guess for me, although not jarring, maybe a better melding between to stages of the story. I kinda missed the limited interaction between Kate/Naz in the second half.

    Story
    "Very complex and interwoven"
    Would you listen to The Wrong Woman again? Why?

    It was interesting with some surprising twists and turns. Very complex and interwoven. The only downside was that there were so many characters, that I found it hard to keep track of them all. That also makes the story even more interesting the second time around.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The setting and the overall feel of it. So British.


    What about Anne Day-Jones’s performance did you like?

    Very good, suited the story very well. Heavy accent, makes the whole story so British you can almost taste it.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Smiles and surprises. Huh? Moments. Longing for a little more erotic scenes…

    Story
    "An excellent mystery romance with unexpected twist"
    Where does The Wrong Woman rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best stories I've heard for while.


    What other book might you compare The Wrong Woman to, and why?

    has the same honesty, credibility and sensitivity as other books by Jane and is insightful and raises interesting questions about the world of therapy and the perils of being a counsellor.


    What does Anne Day-Jones bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    A lively and well-narrated style.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The contrast between the two worlds of Naz and Kate and how they find common ground despite their differences is touching.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is a page turner and makes you want to discover the next twist in the tale. It raises interesting questions about the line between being humane to clients and the dangers of being seen to be over-intrusive. These are difficulties faced daily by anyone in a caring profession and the best intentions can sometimes be misconstrued and place the carer in vulnerable and dangerous situations. Anyone who has ever been involved with the establishment in this way, knows that there is a fine line between doing enough and doing too much and trying to get that right can be virtually impossible. Kate is faced with a dilemma of whether to help the client or walk away and ends up in serious trouble for doing what most would feel was "the right thing." The experession "no good deed goes unpunished" is apt for this novel.
    A thoughtful, sensitive and intelligent read, written with great sensitivity and insight. Kudos to Jane for another fantastic storyline. Highly recommended for all.

    Story
    "Complex murder mystery"
    What did you like most about The Wrong Woman?

    This book has good pace, an intricate plot with unexpected twists, and an appealing romance.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It has to be Kate because she's intriguing and fully-rounded and you get to know her as the book progresses.


    Which character – as performed by Anne Day-Jones – was your favourite?

    I really enjoyed this narrator. She used her voice well to distinguish the characters. I particularly enjoyed Saskia and Naz.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Will her past destroy her future?


    Any additional comments?

    This book kept me guessing.

    "Another Retzig Masterpiece."

    Having listened to several Retzig books, I now notice a theme, she weaves everything in the present back to something in the past toward the end of the book. Which reminds me of one of my favourite authors Kate Mosse who writes similarly.
    This is one of her better books that leave you wanting a conclusion aftermath chapter.
    The narrator had an agreeable tone, impersonating the character of Saskia perfectly (listen out for the reservation booking-lol) I loved this book as much as The Photograph.
    Would recommend highly, but be prepared to have time to listen, it's rather addictive.
    Naturally these events and characters can only ever be given life by fiction, nonetheless it's enjoyable.

    Story
    "So Many Voices, but No pictures"

    I enjoyed the story overall. Great dialogue and quirky, memorable characters who were, personality-wise, really well developed. I was not used to having nearly complete omniscience, though. It took until the end of the story to understand the pattern of whose voice we heard and whose we didn't. Another interesting style choice was the detail of some scenes, but the amount of picture left to the imagination. If you rely on an author to pain a room for you, this might be hard. If you are ok with little stills and limited snap-shots, it'll work fine.
