Publisher's Summary

You think he might be having an affair - do you walk out or fight back? A fast-paced, gripping psychological thriller. 

Mia has her life in order. She is a grown-up and enjoys a grown-up's relationship with Pete. Not passionate or spontaneous but solid. She knows he is 'the one'. But then she sees a text message on Pete's phone that throws her world into a spin. It is more than friendly, signed off with a kiss, and Mia has never heard of the sender, Liz. 

With her carefully mapped out life sliding out of control Mia will discover a side to herself she never knew existed, as she formulates a plan to win her happy ending. Because all's fair in love and war - isn't it?

Lack luster

The story kept my interest throughout the entire book. However I kept hoping she would just leave the son of a B. The ending is lack luster and ends with a thud. It could have been a lot better. The characters are interesting and the dialogue is good. Again...the story just never really ends...which is not great.

Not a psychological thriller

I listened expecting this to be twisty and dark. Although, twisty in it's own way, it was not thrilling. I will say it makes an interesting statement about relationships, honesty and expectations

What a great and even funny book but no ending?

I was enjoying the book and thinking I found a new author. The story was a page turner but not like the typical thrillers I have read but still interesting. But then it got to the ending . I mean did i really though? Very disappointing. It was like the author got tired of writing and decided to call it a day. I don't write a lot of reviews but had to on this one because it is like waiting for a ride at an amusement park and you finally get on and get one go around and the ride breaks and everyone has to climb off.

Really really liked this

I’m surprised this doesn’t get better reviews, because I had a hard time turning it off. Yes, at several points you’ll be thinking “oh my gosh, just leave this loser!”, but there are twists and deeper meanings that will unwind slowly. The only thing that was too abrupt and felt like a loose end was... well.... the ending, which is unfortunate and prevented me from giving the “story” 4 stars. But, it was a slow burn and the primary conclusion and points of the story were made, so it really wasn’t about the “ending” (although I do LOVE a really good twisty wrap-up).

While a page turner....

Having gone through something very similar to this in my own life, it brought up a lot of old feelings and was a well told story. This book did keep me interested but looking back not much happened. I love this narrator, listened to this book just because of her, and she did not disappoint.

Pathetic women

The most pathetic weak women I’ve ever encountered in a book of this genre! And the ending was horrible! I think I speak for a majority of the listeners when I say that we needed a certain someone to end up alone and sad! The only good thing about this book was Georgia Maguire!

Great narrator

... and I chose the book for the narrator, knowing Georgia from BA Paris’ books. This story is nowhere near the gripping suspense, so, disappointing.

WOW...WELL DONE

You know those stories that you can’t judge until you’ve heard all the facts? On the surface, you think one thing but when you dig deeper, it’s another. Well, this book is exactly that. Filled with the right amount of drama to keep you interested while absolutely knowing this scenario could actually happen.
Must read!

Addictive listen!

I could not put this down! Loved the story with its satisfying nonviolent revenge! Lucy Dawson knows how to spin a tale and keep you engaged. Enjoy the ride and expect a twist or two. Yes, her endings tend to leave you wanting more and perhaps needing more closure; better yet how about a sequel!?! This story had the surprise addition of over a half dozen laugh out loud moments from some snappy dry humor. Loved it!

Good easy listening, suspense thriller

Lucy Dawson's thrillers are usually about relationships and families rather than murders, always told from the woman's perspective. This is no exception.

In this book, our hero, Mia finds evidence that her significant other is having a relationship with somebody else. The suspense is about whether she will manage to get rid of her partner's other woman and keep him for herself. Mia starts doing things that partly make you think she might be a little deranged herself, and partly make you anxious to find out whether she will get away with it - not unlike a soap opera.

Towards the end, we get a few changes in direction, raising the tension somewhat as you would expect from a good thriller. At times though it did begin to border on a Whitehall farce. I liked the last couple of lines of the book. A good final twist.

Like Lucy Dawson's other books (White Lies, The Memory, The Daughter, Everything You Told Me), I found this held my attention right from the start and all through the book. It was easy to follow without too much concentration, not to many characters, but just enough to keep the listener's attention.

I wasn't conscious of any out-of-place mannerisms from the narrator, Georgia Maguire. On that basis I reckon she did a really good job. There are some awful edits in the sound though.

Laugh Out Loud Funny And Very Sad

This isn’t my usual type of book, I bought it in a 2 for 1 offer and I’m more crime and thrillers normally, but I really enjoyed it. It made me laugh out loud at times but I also felt the main character’s pain. I thought it well written and extremely well read, the narrator’s dead pan delivery was perfect for the funny parts. I particularly enjoyed the restaurant scenario, I’m sure it’s one most women will recognise!

Mediocre

Predictable and quite shallow story. Well performed but no depth to the characters. Easy listen but hardly a psychological thriller!

Brilliant Book but strange ending???

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it was so intriguing!! It kept my interest throughout. Mia's plan was so clever and devious, she was almost as bad as the character, Villanelle in Killing Eve!! Some of it was quite comical.
The twist in the tale was unexpected.
I just thought that the ending was a bit strange and it really needed an extra chapter or an epilogue.
Great book though and I would recommend it. Great narration too, but I do agree that some of the editing was bad. Whenever the narrator said 'Pete', it somehow sounded like 'EET'' A lot of her words seemed to be cut off at the beginning of the word - it was strange but didn't put me off the book.
RECOMMENDED.

Good!

This is a good story, with a satisfying ending. The characters are well drawn. The main protagonist is not sympathetic and I really did not like her, but that’s fine. The narrator generally did a good job, but, at times it was obvious when she had left the work and returned, and some words were cut off!

Boring and long winded about nothing

The book was a very boring and long winded tale of an unfaithful boyfriend, I kept hoping for something exciting to happen, it did not even right at the end.

a good story but just kind of ended suddenly

I enjoyed the story and narration but I felt it was missing a last chapter. it just ended without ends being tied up, or leading you into thinking about where the story could go. Mia didn't confront her feelings for her male friend & it was a fair part of the storyline. just feel it ended before the story had a natural finish.

Made me annoyed

The main character was ridiculous in her quest to "keep her man".
I would have got shut of him immediately.
Kept expecting something interesting and exciting to happen and it didn't.

Waste of time.

Don’t bother the story is very weak. The ending is terrible! Was waiting for something to happen and it never did. Give it a miss.
