There are no reviews for this title yet.
"There's several hours of my life I won't get back."
From an interesting start, including an intriguing structure, this dissipated into a contrived, formulaic plod with poor dialogue and even worse research.
A disappointing effort.
My Husband's Wife captured me in first chapter and held my attention throughout.
The story is fast moving with many twists and turns. It is an extremely well written thriller. Happily Jane Corry doesn't need graphic language and explicitly described violence in order to enhance her writing skills.
I highly recommend My Husband's Wife.
"A page turner, unexpected"
A good story although the actions of the characters were a little unexpected sometimes, not predictable but not like anyone I know.
"Strong characters growing as the story builds ..."
Couldn't wait to hear how this unraveled & built all at the same time. Strong characters .
Enjoyable narration & this book just fitted the bill.
There was a lot going off in this book and not an easy read but I did really enjoy it.
"Not for me"
A promising start then lurched from one unbelievable plot twist to an inexplicable action. I did get all the way through, but won't be reading another Jane Corry
I really enjoyed this book and the twists and turns. Good ending unlike so many other books in this genre. The ending went on and on though... Overall I'm pleased and will be buying again
"An Engrossing Listen"
I thoroughly enjoyed this audio from start to finish. The two narrators were excellent and the book neatly switched from the central characters, Lilly and Carla, without the listener losing the way or getting confused as to whether it was past or future. I personally found the number of complexities enjoyable and a good distraction from the main plot of the book, which was clever without being utterly ridiculous. The characters were quite likeable and not so annoying that you gave up on them, nor were the women simpering idiots. Slightly neurotic and self satisfied but minor points. On the whole an engrossing audio with engaging twists and turns and a pleasant change from the usual criminal potboilers massed produced these days.
