Summary

The brand-new domestic thriller from the number one best-selling author of Obsession.

A new couple moves in next door. And nothing will ever be the same again....

I watched you move in next door and thought we might be friends.

I saw you watching from the window - and knew I’d have to keep you well away from my husband. 

I started to trust you. Confide in you.

I started to mistrust you. Suspect you. 

I was confused when I blacked out after an evening at your place. Was I really that drunk?

I came up with a plan. A plan to make you both pay....

Sexy and sinister - this audiobook will keep you up all night.

Not for me

Started slowly and didn’t get much better. The story seemed implausible and, for me, a long stretch of the imagination. The ending was also very weak.

Overly descriptive in some places as well as being repetitive in the use of the same descriptions.

The heavy use of brand name dropping seemed unnecessary and didn’t add much to the story.

I also found the female narrator very grating. Read too slowly and overly punctuated.

Slow Start

A slow start and I was going to give up and return the book, however, I stuck with it and am so pleased I did. Thoroughly enjoyed it and thought the narrators were excellent.

Stupid

I can't believe I even finished this book, I kept thinking it must get better or I must be missing something and if I kept listening it would turn out to be quite good but I should have just stopped. The narrating was dreadful, the two women sounded identical and the voices were so stiff and clipped there was no emotion at all. Plot was ridiculous, and every one of them would have been prosecuted for wasting police time in real life! I had it on a fast speed because it was SO slow to listen to and even at a fast speed it didn't end soon enough for me. What a waste of time and money.

Didn’t expect it to be so good!

I really enjoyed this book! After reading the caption I didn’t think it would be up to much but it was so good! Some parts were a little far fetched but it didn’t matter as I was enjoying the story so much! When you think this must be the end even more happens! Thoroughly enjoyed!

Hidden Gem!!!

NO SPOILERS! I listen to 100s of thrillers and many bore me to death, but not this one. I won’t give anything away, you really should just enjoy the ride. The narrators were fantastic. Matt Addis was perfect for the character of Allister. Both the narrators couldn’t have been more perfect for the voices of these characters.

I recommend this to anyone who loves domestic psychological thrillers! More people should know about this book!

Great story!

Great thriller that kept me entertained. I found myself confused at some parts of the book and I had to go back and repeat parts I already listened to in order to get the plot right. The male characters had me confused but it all came together in the end! I look forward to reading more books by this author in the future.

A great 'just one more chapter' read!

This book was indeed different. I felt as if I were watching a movie would I read, the crashes just playing out before my eyes. I was hooked from the very beginning, I love the way this author writes and I may have luck I'll another if get titles. There was so much going on on this book but I was able to keep up with it all. The book is told in second person from each character with past memories thrown in as well. Only, you aren't certain who's memories you are reading until later in the book. I thought I had if all figured out a couple times but was proven wrong each time. The only thing I didn't like about this book was the ending. It made no sense to me why the author chose to end it the way she did. There's no real closure. I expected an epilogue but found none. If your playing on reading this title just to pass time, don't. To read this title you need to block off some time because you'll keep wanting to know what happens next. The chapters are fairly short so, the whole 'just one more chapter' just continues until the book is finished. I will definitely be reading this again in the future.

I savored this British “psycho”logical thriller

I’ve discovered another brilliant author, Amanda Robson. She weaves a compelling thriller with exceptional and precise flair; there is not a dull moment. Laura Costello and Matt Addis are exceptional narrators and bring these sinister and toxic characters to vivid life. Just when I thought the end of the book was near, fortunately for me, it was not. Subplots abound and I anxiously listened for more; I was not disappointed. Surprises, twisty-turns and jaw-dropping moments I never saw coming continued throughout. That ending, wow! Worth a cherished credit, however, I preferred to pay the $9+. I never use a credit on a book under $12 or so. Highly recommended! I so do enjoy my British audiobooks, and “My Darling” proves why. Thank you to author and narrators, as well as Audible for making this deliciously creepy and gripping book available. Epic, I say, EPIC!
NOTE: Listen intently as not to miss one moment of this complex and addictive book.
👏⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️👏

Hmmmm...

I didn’t want it to end, but wasn’t into it until halfway through. I had to rewind several times until I remembered everyone’s name and who they were with, and the short, choppy paragraphs were..... different. Several of the scenes were completely unrealistic and off the rails, but it was still a very creative, twisty plot with amazing performances.... I loved these narrators!

Awful

I am so mad at myself for sticking with this. I just hoped it would save itself. But, it never did. The most unbelievable storyline in the history of domestic thrillers. I don’t care that the characters were so unlikeable, the plot was so stupid.

Very good!

It's been a while since I gave 5 stars. This audiobook definitely kept my attention! I would recommend. The narrator was absolutely superb. I will look for her books in the future.
