Critic Reviews

Praise for Cass Green: "A gripping page-turner with a twisted ending. Brilliant!" (Psychologies)

"Dark, gripping and totally compelling. A genuine page-turner." (Alex Lake, best-selling author of After Anna)

"A beguiling thriller, beautifully written and suffused with a delicately rising sense of menace which builds to a nerve-shredding climax. Once again Cass Green has written a book which you’ll happily be held captive by." (Eva Dolan)

Don't Cry until the end

The Narrator's were great and the storyline very captive & intriguing.
Cass Green nailed another 5star thriller.
This story will definitely keep your attention to the very end.
The audiobook was well worth the wait.

Just try and stay awake

I hate to not like a book...I really get that an author pours themself into their work. But that just can't be the case with this book. There was never one single moment of suspense or dread or anticipation or interesting characters or storyline...it was a slog from beginning to end. The main characters and the events they were caught up in were the most boring you could possibly put on paper...I really did FORCE myself to finish in the hopes there would be something to redeem the book...there was not. Use your credit more wisely than I used mine.

Good, not great

The title works really well with this novel. starts a bit slow but takes off and doesn't look back. The narration was good. Character development was well done. I will read more from this author.

Boring

This book is so slow, it never got my attention. Very predictable and a waste of money/credits.

WOW!

Very engaging book. I loved the struggle for Nina. Her maternal instincts for Angel, Baby Zach and her own sweet son.

Edge of your seat story!

From the beginning of the story I was pulled in and couldn't stop listening. A definite plus to add to your library. If you want a book that has action, jaw dropping situations and loveable characters this is it. It began one way with you really not liking some of the characters but you might change your mind. Without saying to much this book is a rollercoaster ride and you won't be disappointed. Loved it! 😀😀😀😀

nothing happened

I can't really write what I think without spoiling it. Not that there was really anything to spoil. Kept guessing things about what was coming but there was nothing that required guessing. I'll stop here. But if you've read a lot of these psychological thrillers then just pass on this one.

GREAT NARRATION! SLOW STORY!

Although I enjoyed the book, there were times that it was a little slow. The narrators are what kept me listening. They all did a wonderful job. The story picked up near the end which helped. I do recommend this book but HIGHLY recommend? Not so much!

Twisty Psychological Thriller

This is the second book by Cass Green which I have read, the first being In a Cottage In a Wood which I loved. I was hooked by this one from start, although it did seem a bit far-fetched at times. But then again stranger things have happened, so who knows! I wasn't sure where it was going to go at times, but Ms Green has woven a twisty, mesmerising story and I couldn't stop listening. A very satisfying ending too!

The narration was good and added to my enjoyment of the story.

Excellent book spoiled by one of the narrators

I loved this story. It had some really nice twists and turns and great characters. Three of the four narrators were brilliant and I really enjoyed listening to them. Unfortunately Anna Bentink who narrates the bulk of this story is completely unsuitable for the role and narrates terribly. It’s difficult to remember that Nina (the central character) is only 45 and mother of a young child. Anna is clearly considerably older than this, and seems to feel the need to adopt an even older voice to play the part. She reads her as if she’s a prim 70 year old, which just doesn’t fit. It makes absolutely no sense and is irritating to the point of spoiling the whole book. The way she reads the voices of other characters is terrible too and completely at odds with the voices of the actors playing those roles. She also has a habit (particularly towards the end of the book) of slowing down and becoming staccato as if she’s tired and has lost all of her energy. It’s a big shame. I really wish that the production companies were more careful when casting. They only have to concentrate on getting a voice that fits the book and an actor who is good enough to narrate in a manner that does justice to the author. It’s no where near as complex as casting a play or film, where many other factors come into play. Why do some narrators continue to get work when they do such a poor job? Please if anyone from the production team is reading this, try a bit harder. It’s frustrating for the listener, really unfair on the author and in the end financially compromising for you!

Disappointed

I found this book quite slow and the story line is unremarkable.....The Woman Next Door & Cottage In the Wood are much better!

Kept me listening.

Very good story. Liked most of the characters but one narrator was a little annoying in his mis-pronunciation. Otherwise gripping read.

Good, not great

Started off well then I found it dragged a bit until the last third, which was really good, although did wrap in in her usual “and all is well” style.
