Publisher's Summary

You don't remember her - but she remembers you.

On the face of it, Emma and Nina have very little in common. Isolated and exhausted by early motherhood, Emma finds her confidence is fading fast. Nina - sophisticated, generous, effortlessly in control - seems to have all the answers.

It's easy to see why Emma is drawn to Nina. But what does Nina see in her?

A seemingly innocent friendship slowly develops into a dangerous game of cat and mouse as Nina eases her way into Emma's life. Soon, it becomes clear that Nina wants something from the unwitting Emma - something that might just destroy her.

What the Critics Say

"...Writing with a quiet confidence and an eye for the most perfect details, Ms. Lane lures her readers into the lives of Nina and Emma, two women at opposite ends of raising a family. Ms. Lane finds the extraordinary in the ordinary, and this gift will keep readers enthralled until the novel's thrilling end." (Lori Roy, author of Bent Road and Until She Comes Home)

"A spellbinding book. Think of Virginia Woolf under the influence of Claude Chabrol. Just beneath the smooth, beautiful sentences lies a world alive with terror." (Tom McNeal, author of To Be Sung Underwater)

    Story
    "Promising, but then turns into a Lifetime movie"
    Would you try another book from Harriet Lane and/or Julie Maisey?

    I actually was pretty miffed that audible recommended this book. I thought I was getting a novel about two women similar in age but at divergent points in their lives. The early hints that they had met before was interesting, I even thought it interesting that their was a revenge plot possibly brought about by the unrealized actions of the other character. But then it just gets into the "she thought they were friends, but one of them is a killer" territory. DO NOT LISTEN if you are the mother of young children.

    Story
    "Like watching a train wreck in very slow motion."

    The story line is very good but the author drags it and stretches it out until you almost lose interest. It's worth listening to and the plot will make you think about the ones who trust your friendships and your children with.

    "Don't even bother"

    Literally nothing happens until the last 5 minutes.

    This story was obnoxious and shallow and confusing.

    Definitely returning this one for sure. Boooo

    "Not complete"

    I was sadly disappointed that the author did not seem to have a sufficiently formed motive for the antagonists actions .otherwise it was a compelling read..

    "What the heck?"

    This story just did not come together. Nina, one of the main characters was not shown to have sufficient justification for her actions to make her at all believable. It was a good story beginning but never comes to fruition.

    Story
    "Not for me."

    It's an ok book. But, the confusion lasts too long. A bit redundant. I hate spoilers, but this is the most "what is the result?" book I've read in a long time. Hanging is one thing. Left cold and uncaring is another.

    Story
    "Just kept thinking it could only get better"

    Wow. I came across this book on a list titled "If You Loved Gone Girl, Check Out..." HER was at the top of the list. I just finished it and I'm going back and forth between being so relieved that it's over and so mad at myself for using an Audible credit on it.

    The double perspective technique works well in other books, but not here because mostly, it's just a reselling of the same scene from the other person's point of view. Boring!

    I kept waiting for something to really HAPPEN in the plot. Still waiting....

    Story
    "A Tangled Web of Mess!"

    At first, the duel perspectives wereinteresting, but at omepoint,itbecame redundant. No rhyme or reason for this game of a cat chasing a mouse who thinks she too is a cat. Once a reason becomes availabile, it far too much of a stretch to be believable, which was asdisappointing as the ending. On the upside, the performance was good.

    "Dreadfully boring!"

    I was waiting for this book to come to some sort of climax, which it did, about several seconds from the end! The end was unsatisfying to say the least. The author's depiction of motherhood was depressing and made me never want to have children! I believe this book was recommended for me due to my interest in "Girl on the Train". Unfortunately Her had far less excitement and intrigue as Girl. Very disappointing.
