Summary

A writer’s misguided suspicions ruined his life once before. This time he plans to prove he’s right in a New York Times bestselling author’s haunting short story of what happens when seeing is not believing.

Will, an aspiring novelist, can’t stop parsing his ex-girlfriend’s popular social media accounts for clues that her ideal new rural life with the perfect man has a dark side. After all, nobody he knows has actually seen the blissful blogger in the flesh for nearly a year. When Will draws a wary friend into his “investigation,” the real question becomes who’s truly in danger.

Lisa Unger’s Let Her Be is part of Hush, a collection of six stories, ranging from political mysteries to psychological thrillers, in which deception can be a matter of life and death. Each piece can be read or listened to in one truly chilling sitting.

Let her be by Lisa Unger

It was an unexpected monologue referring to the man’s dead sister,missing girlfriend and then another young woman who was in love with him.
I wasn’t too sure about this short story.

Terrific

A terrific, quick read. If you have a little time to fill, this is a great book to fill it. Dark and devious. Loved that ending.

I can't imagine a better narration for this book. The performance really enhanced the story.

Let Her Be

Second Hush short story audio and am really enjoying them. Loved the mystery and the characters. Enjoy that they are written by different authors, you can get to know more. The narration was very good.

Excellent Short Story

I must say after reading two other novella's in the Hush Collection, I was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed this one because I didn't really care for the other two.

I think there's an art to writing a novella because let's face it...you have to pack a punch of a full story all in a short time frame. Some people can do it and some people can't! Apparently Lisa Unger can!

The ending of the story was a bit surprising to me and kind of leaves you wondering! I don't want to say too much because there's not too much to say without giving it away, but I'll just say that I really enjoyed Let Her Be.

Chris Andrew Ciulla did an excellent job at narrating this title and being able to easily distinguish between two main characters! His female voice is not all that bad!!

Not my cup of tea

It was too depressing for my tastes. Moved slow, it just didn’t hold my interest. I didn’t finish it and don’t know how to delete it. I’m new to audible so maybe didn’t audition it.

Oof

You can essentially guess how this is going to go, but that doesn't stop it from being an unsettling, intriguing story. A good quick listen for a low key afternoon. I also kind of like that we never REALLY find out what happened. I like being left to kind of guess. It's more fun.

I’ll go 2 1/2 stars

This wasn’t all that great. It was OK for free, I guess. There just isn’t anything intriguing or original here. It’s just like many other types of stories that tries to draw your attention one way so they can slip in the obvious. The main character, Will, is insufferable. I didn’t buy into him or care for him in the least. The ending was over exaggerated and should’ve been scaled back a bit. I don’t think it’s that easy or quick to achieve what he did in the end.

I love a good suspense story

Love, suspense and a very well narrated story. I'd like to hear a full length novel by this author.

Had to stop listening

I usually like Lisa Unger books and enjoy the narrator, but this story and the narrator is so bad I can’t finish it. Really disappointed with this Crush series of books.
