Marianne has a life others dream of. A beautiful townhouse on the best street in the neighbourhood. Three bright children who are her pride and joy. Sometimes her past still hurts: losing her mother early, growing up in foster care. But her husband, Simon, is always there. A successful surgeon, he’s the envy of every woman they’ve ever met. Flowers, gifts, trips to France: nothing is too good for his family. Then Simon says another woman’s name. The way he lingers on it, Caroline, gives Marianne a shudder of suspicion, but she knows it’s nothing - she can’t entertain this flash of paranoia.

This story was AMAZING!! Never a dull moment..gripping..thrilling..suspensful and extremely unputdownable! Clues are hidden throughout, but so subtle that they are very easily missed. Perfect ending and perfect narration by Katie Villa, as usual. Don't hesitate to spend a credit or the money on this book. I read 2-3 audiobooks per week in this exact genre, and have for the last 3 or so years. I can honestly say this is one of the best psychological thrillers I have ever had the pleasure of 'reading'. This one will stick with you long after you have finished. Bravo!!! Will be recommending this one to all my book loving friends. I can't wait to see what this author writes next!!

Meredith Price is the luckiest woman alive. Her husband, Andrew, is a charming and successful financial broker. She has two lovely stepchildren and is living in affluence in a mountain resort town. After three years of marriage, Meredith’s life has become predictable. Until the day she disappears. Her car has been discovered in a grocery store parking lot - purse and phone undisturbed on the passenger seat, keys in the ignition, no sign of struggle, and no evidence of foul play. It’s as if she vanished into thin air.

They call themselves the May Mothers - a collection of new moms who gave birth in the same month. Twice a week, with strollers in tow, they get together in Prospect Park, seeking refuge from the isolation of new motherhood. When the group’s members agree to meet for drinks at a hip local bar, they have in mind a casual evening of fun, a brief break from their daily routine. But on this sultry Fourth of July night during the hottest summer in Brooklyn’s history, something goes terrifyingly wrong: one of the babies is taken from his crib.

Amber wakes up in a hospital. She can't move. She can't speak. She can't open her eyes. She can hear everyone around her, but they have no idea. Amber doesn't remember what happened, but she has a suspicion her husband had something to do with it. Alternating between her paralyzed present, the week before her accident, and a series of childhood diaries from 20 years ago, this brilliant psychological thriller audiobook asks: Is something really a lie if you believe it's the truth?

I am an avid psychological Thriller reader, and it takes a lot these days to surprise or fool me. But THIS book, this book had me guessing and trying to figure it out until the very last chapter was read. Just WOW!! I have not been this fooled since I read 'Behind Her Eyes' which is one book I wish I could go back and 'unread' just so I could read it again! Don't hesitate to buy or spend a credit on 'Sometimes I Lie'. Absolutely one of my all time favorite psychological thrillers. Never a dull moment, and the writing was absolutely beautiful and narration was superb! Highly, highly recommend!

Now, two years later, and with the help of her hearing dog, Stitch, she is finally getting back on her feet. But when she discovers the body of a fellow nurse in the dense bush by the river, deep in the woods near her cabin, she is plunged into a disturbing mystery that could shatter the carefully reconstructed pieces of her life all over again.

I have read all of Heather Gudenkaufs novels and have loved them all, with my favorite being The Weight of Silence. This book, Not A Sound, was really, really good! This is now my second favorite by this author and I will continue to buy/listen/read to her novels as long as she continues to bless us with her master storytelling skills. There was a lot of character depth, so much so that the characters seemed like old friends that you haven't seen for awhile! (I miss Amelia and Stich already!!) There was also alot of scenic detail which made the novel have that atmospheric feel that I love without going overboard with every minor detail. The narration by Julia Whelan was absolutely perfect as this narrator is always perfect in my opinion! Overall an excellent book that kept me turning the pages at 1am with the same old, "One more Chapter!" mantra.
I read ALOT of books, at least 10 per month in and around the mystery/suspense genre without the crime fiction portion and this book is definitely the best book I have read in awhile
Definitely Recommend!!

A single mother turns up dead at the bottom of the river that runs through town. Earlier in the summer, a vulnerable teenage girl met the same fate. They are not the first women lost to these dark waters, but their deaths disturb the river and its history, dredging up secrets long submerged. Left behind is a lonely 15-year-old girl. Parentless and friendless, she now finds herself in the care of her mother's sister, a fearful stranger who has been dragged back to the place she deliberately ran from - a place to which she vowed she'd never return.

I was very excited for this book to be released, and downloaded it immediately upon release date. However.... This was a very dissapointing read. Not at all suspensful and somewhat hard to follow with no more than 14 different characters to try and keep up with. I wouldn't recommend. The only redeming quality was the near perfect narration of the many many characters. The ending was predictable, no twists, no suprises there. The whole storyline was a bit strange, almost paranormal. There are much better psychological suspense books out there (for example: behind her eyes by Sarah Pinborough) don't waste 11 hours of your time on this one.
