The perfect marriage? Or the perfect lie? Jack has looks and wealth; Grace has charm and elegance. You might not want to like them, but you do. You'd like to get to know Grace better. But it's difficult, because Jack and Grace are never apart. Some might call this true love. Others might ask why Grace never answers the phone. And why there are bars on one of the bedroom windows. Sometimes the perfect marriage is the perfect lie.

the narrator was fantastic. she pulled it off so well. the writing kept me so gripped. I was even talking out loud at points over my headphones. which made me chuckle as I never do that. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves to be taking into places you never thought uou would wander. luckily it's only fiction. I applaud the author . also the narrator .thank you for a fantastic read/listen .

this is a really enjoyable book . I didn't watch the film as was a musical and also I wanted to hear the book itself. it was a wonderful story with wonderful narration. it was like listening into someone's thought . I liked that some chapters where 2 charters and I like hearing about the children growing. it's very good for what it is. it's like the colour purple of this time

I resisted the haunting of hill house. as wanted to watch on Netflix as looked great on Google box. and I don't watch horror as find boaring but wow what a show.

I have read a lot of thrillers as I hsve a wondering mind,so need something gripping and intense to stop this. this is really good in all ways. I won't spoil it for you . but it starts with a bang so be warned if driving etc as you will be engrossed. I am an audible junkie and listen to a book 1 in every 6 seconds. I am a disabled person . so have to stay still a lot due to pain . if you like this sort of thing . therepy. the child. their missing daughters. saving April.

After all, you live only next door. You'll have the baby monitor, and you'll take it in turns to go back every half hour.

this is the first of two books in this series. and I loved every minute of them . these are so unusual. I wish they were more .

it's like you are there with them and the feelings and characters come alive on the page. I actually felt like I knew them . I wish I had known about there being two books as would have listened back to back instead of a few months apart . I would highly recommend this to anyone and the other one . I hope you enjoy this as much as I did. I hope the author writes more . well done
