Not sure what I was expecting, but this wasn't it.
I'm not sorry I listened to it, but as a fan of psychological thrillers, I'm not sure I can recommend it either. I feel like any true review would be a spoiler so I will leave it at this

Wedding-dress designer Jenny Tate understands the happily ever after business, yet somehow she's still involved in her ex-husband's life. In fact Owen's new wife may - inexplicably - be Jenny's new best friend. Sensing this, well, relationship isn't helping her move on, Jenny trades the Manhattan skyline for her hometown up the Hudson, where she'll be able to bask in her sister Rachel's picture-perfect family life...and hopefully make one of her own.

I am not usually a chick lit or romance reader/listener, but this was a very sweet story. The narrator for Rachel was a little difficult to listen to at first , but she grew on me, and I enjoyed the entire book for what it was.

For me this one was more of a 2.5 than a 3.
The story itself, the ending, and the narration all fell flat for me. It was not at any point a gripping psychological thriller.

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.

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.

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!

So glad I continued listening. I believe this book was listed as contemporary fiction, but it should definitely be in the psychological (mystery/thriller) section. The narrator did a great job except for her attempt at a American male. I honestly didn't care for this book in the beginning, but it redeemed itself so completely that I can't even remember why anymore., and I can definitely say it was worth the credit and the listen.

I picked this book solely on genre and reviews. I may never trust reviews again... I almost think they have to be fake. This was the worst book I've ever made myself finish, and there was NOT ONE single likable character ... not even the children. The writing and the narration were both immature. Save yourself...save your credit... I can NOT recommend this book to anyone

Nonny Frett understands the meanings of "rock" and "hard place" better than any woman ever born. She's got two mothers, "one deaf-blind and the other four baby steps from flat crazy". She's got two men: her husband, who's easing out the back door; and her best friend, who's laying siege to her heart in her front yard. She has a job that holds her in the city, and she's addicted to a little girl who's stuck deep in the country.

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?
