    Marian Caldwell is a 36-year-old television producer, living her dream in New York City. With a fulfilling career and satisfying relationship, she has convinced everyone, including herself, that her life is just as she wants it to be. But one night, Marian answers a knock on the door ... only to find Kirby Rose, an 18-year-old girl with a key to a past that Marian thought she had sealed off forever. From the moment Kirby appears on her doorstep, Marian’s perfectly constructed world - and her very identity - will be shaken to its core.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book was definitely worth listening to. I've read and listened to all of Emily Giffin's books and this is easily my favorite. The story is so grripping you don't want to stop listening!


    What does Orlagh Cassidy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narrator was perfect for this story.

    What did you love best about My Life as a White Trash Zombie?

    The plot line.


    Have you listened to any of Allison McLemore’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Mo I avent, I think her voice is perfect for the story.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Lol some parts made me laugh


    Any additional comments?

    I would reccomend this book to anyone looking for a good read. This book isn't for someone looking for a profound read, it's more of a "hey why not" read. I actually downloaded the second book to this series and hopefully it's a long the same lines. The author is imaginative.

    Heloise considers it a blessing to be a person who seldom attracts attention. In her suburb, she's just a mom, the young widow with the forgettable job, who somehow never misses a soccer game. In the state capital, she's the redheaded lobbyist with a good cause and a mediocre track record. But in discreet hotel rooms throughout the area, she's the woman of your dreams - if you can afford the hourly fee. For more than a decade, Heloise believed she was safe, managing to keep up this rigidly compartmentalized life. But her secret life is under siege. One county over, another so-called suburban madam has been found dead in her car, an apparent suicide.

    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes it definitely did! Right when the story began I was hooked. The plot is intriguing and well thought out.

    I originally looked up listeners favorites and this one popped up, so I wanted to see for myself. This story did not disappoint, and is worth the listen l I normally don't listen to a book for hours straight, but I actually found myself listening straight through the first download! I'm very happy I purchased this book and I would highly recommend it .

    When Katie appears in the small North Carolina town of Southport, her sudden arrival raises questions about her past. Beautiful yet self-effacing, Katie seems determined to avoid forming personal ties until a series of events draws her into two reluctant relationships: one with Alex, a widowed store owner with a kind heart and two young children; and another with her plainspoken single neighbor, Jo. Despite her reservations, Katie begins to let down her guard, putting down roots in the close-knit community..

    I must say I am not super into predictable love stories, but this one was not at all what I thought it would be. From the first few minutes of listening to it up until the end , I was entertained! The story of a woman with a "secret" who tries to rebuild her life but also finds a friend... possibly something more was great. The ending had me tearing up a little (which rarely happens). I would definitely reccomend this audio book! Just to be clear this IS NOT a predictable story, I just thought it might be at first.

    I have to say that I got this book on a whim last week because it seemed to have an interesting story line and because I was interested that the author was also the voice ( I assumed who better than the author to read the book exactly how it was meant to be). I have to be honest by first saying I was a little confused in the beginning of the story, and because of that I was about to write this auido book off. I'm glad I didnt, because as I was about 40 mins in the story line started coming together. Just like when I'm reading a really good paper back I found myself finding excuses to continue listening ( I usually listen to my auidobooks when I'm driving or cleaning). Needless to say this audio was not at all what I expected, it went above and beyond my expectations. I just finished it tonight and I had to go online to see what other books she wrote. Funny enough I realized I had actually bought one of her cd audiobooks a few years back! I loved this book and I cant wait to listen to the next one! I would definitely reccommend this audio book!
