Summary

She wants your life - and she’ll do anything to get it....

Erica has always wanted to be exactly like her neighbour, Faye: beautiful, thin, and a mother. But Faye’s life isn’t as perfect as it seems - she has a terrible secret, and slowly but surely, it is threatening to destroy her and everything she holds dear.

When Faye’s daughter Tamsin goes missing after school, the police turn to Erica. But is Erica the only one who has been enviously watching Faye? Or is there another threat hiding in the shadows?

An unsettling, claustrophobic thriller about jealousy, greed and desire from Sunday Times best seller Amanda Robson.

Don’t waste a credit.

Most boring pile of drivel I’ve ever had the misfortune to listen to. Narrator is good but only as good as the rubbish she is reading. She was the only decent thing about this book. For example, a woman kidnaps a child because the mother is having an affair. She goes to trial and is found guilty. She admits that she did it because of the mother having an affair. Yet the parents aren’t at the trial and apparently the parents never ask why? Why did she take my child? Like hello?? Unbelievable and utter rubbish.

Really enjoyed kept me listening

once again I saw this on Facebook and I'm glad I did as I would never have found it on the audible site! I search under the 3 sub categories I like this wasn't in any of them only under 'crime and thrillers' so I never would have found it! I am finding this is happening more and more!! Anyway, I digress! really enjoyed this, its 233 chapters long, and the only negative thing I thought at one point 'surely no more can happen' and kept thinking it was going to finish (I hadn't checked how many chapters there were, and checked half way through as I thought I was nearing the end) but realised I had a while to go, I stayed with it, really enjoyed it, good story, kept me listening, In fact I finished it in a day and a half, listened at bedtime and didn't sleep, listened on my way to work and at work! I am quite fussy when it comes to audiobooks and return a lot, but not this one
