Publisher's Summary

When Fig Coxbury buys a house on West Barrett Street, it's not because she likes the neighborhood, or even because she likes the house. 

It's because everything she desires is next door: the husband, the child, and the life that belongs to someone else.

Brilliant- really good!

Bad Mommy is an immensely entertaining yet genuinely creepy tale of personality disorders gone wild. Fig Coxbury wants what Jolene Avery has- a handsome psychologist husband, a beautiful little daughter and stylish friends. Fig sets her sights on the family, moving next door and inserting herself as a fixture into the family, all the while planning her takeover. Husband Darius is not all that he appears. Jolene now has her hands full. Told from these three points of view, this novel kicks into high gear from the start and doesn’t let up. Fascinating, haunting, scary and a little too easy to picture happening in real life, which makes it all the more interesting. Highly recommended!

Mediocre and Redundant

The narration was good, the plot was ok at first, but soon became tiresome and trite. Then it ended rather abruptly, not with a bang, but more like a wet fizzle. Uninspired.

Strange

I listen to a lot of novels of this type, but this one is very odd. Characters weren’t deep and and it was not even close to single white female. The story didn’t make sense in some places. Sorry- I tried to like it.

Tarryn Fisher is a genius!

Once again Tarryn Fisher has owned me. She is the master of weaving her words into a story that kept me captivated. I couldn't stop listening and finished this in a day. I have read all of her novels and it is clear, the author has a dark side to her. The story follows a woman named Fig, who is convinced her miscarried baby's soul is in another child she has been stalking. Told from 3 different point of views, the character and plot twists will keep you guessing until the end.

Slow and dragged along until almost the end

I enjoyed the narrator but had trouble getting the the book. It didn’t keep my attention and I felt bored throughout most of the book. I couldn’t wait until
It was done. Not enough suspense!

painful...

from the very beginning of this book I knew it was not going to be good... I stopped at chapter 19 and called it quits. I didn't care for the plot or narrative...

No

This book sucks & the voices are just terrible. I’ll never get these 7+ hours back of my life. God forgive me.
I’m giving it two stars only for the great effort these people put into it for a paycheck, instead of robbing a bank, or mugging some poor grandma.
