Summary

This novel follows three characters: Lorraine, Lexy, and Ella.

Lorraine:

Not long ago, Lorraine lost her husband to another woman. She thought that was the worst thing that could happen to her, but soon she realizes it's just the beginning of an everlasting nightmare.

Lexy:

Lexy, an au pair from London, moves to Seattle to help Lorraine with her infant son. But she didn't come for the child...she came for something else.

Ella:

When Ella receives a call from her sister, Lorraine, who begs her to leave San Diego to spend time with her, she decides to take a few days off from work to visit her. Frightened to see how much Lorraine has weakened since her diagnosis eight months ago, she packs a bag and heads to Seattle with a foreboding feeling that this might be the last time she sees Lorraine.

But on her way to the airport, she learns that something shocking has happened since she last spoke with Lorraine and now. To make matters worse, once Ella arrives in Seattle, Lorraine's story keeps changing, making Ella question how reliable her sister really is.

Soon Ella is entangled in a mysterious investigation, and, more so, in the lives of everyone involved. She realizes not only that she won't go home anytime soon, but also that she'll never look at others the same way she did before.

Thriller

The story line was credible with good twists and turns. The actor spoke clearly and at a good pace, I’d be happy to hear him read something else with one main character, this voice was wrong for these characters, it was difficult to differentiate between characters without any attempt to vary the voice with different accents, so it might be better in book form.

Disappointing

The narrator is all wrong; more than one narrator is needed and should be the right gender for the character. This book is like the curate's egg; good in parts. The story is not bad, although the prose tends to purple. It's a bit too much like many other books I have read/ listened to.

Different Narrator PLEASE

I really want to listen to this book but the choice of narrator is extremely off. I always give narrators a lot of slack and a lot of credit, but not this time. This narrator is monotone, middle-aged and most significantly, a man - whereas all 3 of the main characters are women. It really throws me off and unfortunately, I just can’t get into the book.

Wrong reader

The story was good but I was really put off by the male voice speaking for all the ladies telling their stories. I almost quit listening, but I wanted to see where it went.
