An incredible audiobook

I didn’t expect much from this book, I prefer a book with other listeners reviews but I think there was only one. I had never heard of the author but thought sounds interesting so I will give it a go. I am so pleased I did, what a book could not stop listening. Very well written and read and most importantly, to me anyway, it is believable. One of the best listens for a long time.

I would have loved to give this book six stars!

This was such an unusual book compared to the usual thrillers. I really loved the fact that the author was also the narrator she really brought the story to life. I was enthralled by the actions of Erin and Mark and how it all unfolded, it is easy to see how a seemingly normal couple can be drawn to the dark side. I had a job to stop listening and wanted to keep going until it was finished. At first I could not see how all the pieces fitted together but as it became clearer I had to admit that is was a very clever plot. I can't wait for Steadman's next book.

Wow... just wow!

After having three children in two and a half years I never seem to have the free time to read books or stay conscious long enough to read more than a few pages! So the fact I have been able to literally digest this book in a week speaks volumes for how good it is! It has me immediately googling Catherine Steadman to find more reading material! Excellent read, very clever and quite an unexpected ending!

LOVED THIS!

I think the writer being the narrator really helps the story come to life in the way she intended. how it was written made you feel like you were there in person and got involved in the lives of these people. really interesting story and not necessarily the ending you expect when you start listening. very well done!

Superb

Loved this! Story develops throughout keeping it fast paced and on the move. I loved the story, kept me guessing and the narrator being the author made you feel it was read as it was intended!

Cleverly written and a truly enthralling listen

In this novel we follow Erin a documentary filmmaker and newlywed to investment banker Mark.
These two are passionately in love but not without their issues. Mark has lost his job and therefore direction, Erin is embarking on a new documentary documenting prisoners who are soon to leave prison. We follow them on their dream honeymoon where things take a turn, and one decision impacts their future and their lives.

Without giving any spoilers this is not a romantic novel this has wonderful twists and turns and challengers that you feel like you are being taken along for.

This debut novel from Catherine Steadman is enthralling and you genuinely will not want to put it down.

Something in the narration...

Just started to listen to this book, I'm only on the second chapter as I write. The story seems ok so far, however, the continuous swallowing and clicking noises made by the narrator after every sentence, is frankly, driving me to distraction! Even with the volume down, it's still audible. If like me this kind of thing annoys you, I recommend you read instead of listening!

I was sad when it finished

Catherine Steadman was really good. The story was really good. The story was easy to follow but it kept you hooked on from start to finish.

Gripping

Excellent start that grips you. Very entertaining. Well read. Although I guessed the "twist" very early on I wanted to hear how it would all play out.

One of the best book series this year

Absolutely loved this book! How could you not love a book that starts with a character digging a grave? This story twist and turns so many times and it is hard to know who can be trusted. It is a book that you will want to keep listening to, you need to know what is going to happen next.... fantastic!
