Summary

A darkly gripping domestic drama about secrets and lies. 

When you have everything, you have everything to lose.... 

Alexandra Inglis is a respected family doctor, trusted by her patients to keep their most intimate secrets. And if sometimes the boundaries between duty and desire blur...well, she's only human. But when Alex oversteps a line with Jonathan, one of her patients, she knows she's gone too far. 

Jonathan is obsessive, and to get what he wants he will tear Alex's world apart - threatening not only her career but her marriage and family, too. Soon Alex finds she's capable of doing almost anything to keep hold of her perfect life as it begins to spin dangerously out of her control....

Good gentle thriller

The story begins with our main protagonist, Alexandra, waking up in a hotel room with a bad hangover trying to figure out how she came to be there, and who is the man lying next to her. We soon learn that Alexandra is a medical doctor, married to Rob. She is in Ibiza as part of a girls' boozy weekend. The man next to her, Jonathan, is quite young, attractive, and one of Alex's patients from back home. Alex's career could now be at risk if this mistake became public knowledge.
The story before and after that event is told from several perspectives, the perspectives of course differ significantly, as we the audience are gripped wanting to know what is really going on, and who is the "bad guy" in all of this. We get lots of believable detail about family and professional relationships. For the most part of the book this is all pleasant and engaging listening, but fairly pedestrian as a story. All the action, the twists and turns come in the final hour, so don't give up on this book. The ending is worth the wait.
Like an early Lucy Dawson book that I listened to, Everything You Told Me, this is a relatively easy listen, doesn't take too much concentration for a thriller, and has good ending which wraps everything up without anything being left hanging. It's the kind of book I like anyway and I'll be listening to more by the same author.
Rachel Atkins, the narrator, did an excellent job. Her male voices especially, came across as very plausible.

4 and a half stars

For some reason I wasn't particularly keen to start listening to this book - however it hooked me in really quickly and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it. There are a couple of comments I won't make so as not to spoil the experience for other listeners other than I thought the end could have been just a tad stronger. I had foreseen the majority of the resolution but I was still undecided until the end. A cut above some of the listens I've chosen recently.

Kept me guessing!!

The fact that I didn't figure it out (or at least I wasn't ever 100% sure) and that the story and the narrator held my attention is the highest compliment I can give a book in this genre. Excellent... and I highly recommend this listen!

No point to this book

This story was ridiculous. The only reason I kept listening is because I was waiting for some sort of bombshell... nope, it never came. Don’t waste your time.

Really Good

It's a bit of a slow start but soon starts rolling along. I liked how the first part of the book is her story then it switches to his. A few chapters are dedicated to some of the other characters perspectives. Kept me guessing till the end and I like that!

Did not expect the ending!

This book is one of the best I’ve read lately. Lovely narrator. Lots of twists. Kept me guessing. I usually am able to predict the ending, but didn’t with this one. Sort of wish it had ended differently though.

Great drama with a wonderful performance.

This was a good story well-written and nicely performed. The twist at the end was adequately hidden until the very end. The narrator was excellent.

Kinda boring

I would pass on this book. It drags out and isn’t that interesting. I found it rather boring.
