Everyone who lives at 23 Beulah Grove has a secret. If they didn't, they wouldn't be renting rooms in a dodgy old building for cash - no credit check, no lease. It's the kind of place you end up when you you've run out of other options.The six residents mostly keep to themselves, but one unbearably hot summer night, a terrible accident pushes them into an uneasy alliance. What they don't know is that one of them is a killer. He's already chosen his next victim, and he'll do anything to protect his secret.

Boy was this a good audiobook! The narrator was amazing and all the characters were so well written. I can imagine this book on film, and being amazing if it's done right. I'm going to listen again because loved it so much

Cath is a Simon Snow fan. Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan, but for Cath, being a fan is her life - and she's really good at it. She and her twin sister, Wren, ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow Series when they were just kids; it's what got them through their mother leaving. Reading. Rereading. Hanging out in Simon Snow forums, writing Simon Snow fan fiction, dressing up like the characters for every movie premiere. Cath's sister has mostly grown away from fandom, but Cath can't let go.

Liz McGinnis never imagined herself living in a luxurious gated community like The Palms. Ever since she and her family moved in, she's felt like an outsider amongst the Stepford-like wives and their obnoxiously spoiled children. Still, she's determined to make it work - if not for herself, then for her husband, Phil, who landed them this lavish home in the first place, and for her daughter, Danielle, who's about to enter high school.

I loved this book so much. My only complaint is how Liz parents Danielle. I can't stand the whiney teenager that doesn't get disciplined. But other then that, Liz, Phil and Kelsey made for an amazing story. The author points out something amazing for men in these situations and it's disheartening to realize they'll always be in a lose-lose situation.

For anyone who's ever worked in a restaurant, this book will definitely relate to that. I loved the narrator so much. I loved all the personalities, because they are so realistic and are exactly what you encounter in this type of business. I'm really sad it's over, it was such a good book

I was so excited to listen to this book after listening to Pretty Baby, but this book was extremely boring. I listened to the entire thing hoping for some excitement but it never came. The narrators are good, but don't sound like 20 somethings, which adds to the dullness. The idea for the story is good, but maybe it should have been told from the perspective of Genevieve.

There was nothing I didn't like about this audiobook. The narrators were awesome and you can't help but feel the sense of urgency and pain that Janie feels when she can't help Noah. You also will fall in love with Noah and his "Mommy mom". I'm looking forward to more from this author. She's very creative and detailed.

I didn't want to stop listening! The narrator was simply amazing. The end, I kind of knew who it was but the story had many twist and turns. I only wish it was longer and gave a little more backstory on Olivia. She was so like-able and relatable. I'm interested in listening to more from this author.

This was an awesome book.
At first I wanted to hear more from the husband, but now as I write this review, his little part was just enough. Anymore would have made the book too graphic.
What it boils down to is Genie is an emotionally abused woman, and the author did a great job at capturing that.
