Publisher's Summary

Emma's friends are close. Her enemies are closer.

Emma Fern has won at life: she's a prize-winning author and she's blissfully happy with her husband, Jim. It wasn't an easy rise to the top, but Emma knows you can't achieve success without sacrifice. The trouble is, Jim knows that too.

As her literary triumph starts to fade into the past, Emma comes under pressure to write a second bestseller. But her big secret is that she didn't write the first one. She's a fraud, and the only people who ever knew the truth are...no longer a problem.

What Emma didn't count on was Jim playing the long game too. He has his own secrets - and a dangerous plan that could derail her beautifully orchestrated life. Faced with the loss of everything that defines her, Emma is forced to take increasingly desperate steps.

She won't go down without a fight. And as Jim should know, she won't fight fair.

I'm returning and buying the actual book!

Oh my goodness did this narrator listen to the first book at all? This bubbly tone is so not the Character, just as Rudd (Narrator of first book) Portrayed Emma, She is Mature, thirty something savvy New Yorker, not this college aged sounding airhead that this reader is making her into.
So dissatisfied,I really enjoyed the narration of the previous book however, before you waste a credit... sample this one. If you listened and met Emma before...You will totally understand my frustration...who assigned this narrator to crime fiction anyway?! Errr

Emma the Sweeheart Killer

Emma is a delightfully charming bad girl. The storyline is so very important that u want to make sure u choose the correct narrator. Kate Rudd is one of my favorite narrators. Carly Robins voice is a tad bit to fast for this character , its the only reason I can't give a total of 5 🌟's .
deadlines may have rushed this second book out however character history is a cool calm collected woman & the narration is making her sound...down right nutters. I think I have a wee bit of an headache at first. I tried slowing down her pace a bit but nothing made Carly Robins voice fit the Natelli Barelli profile Kate Rude laid the foundation for.
IDK I try to not rate a book if I cant gv more then three stars? This is an entirely diffrent story because the writing is so exquisite. The storyline is phenomenal and an overall 5 🌟 read. It depends on your tolerance level.
if u can tolerate the narrator thru the 1st couple chapters then you will be fine.Then again opinions R like butts..we all have one. Great story...a lil undecided on the narration. I'm still out to lunch on that , at the moment.
Absolutely great novel, the writing is astounding. If there is a book lll please grab Kate Rudd back for estounding Emma.💝

Ok, so I'm back from my lunch break (nap)on the narrator. It turns out ...We hv one of thoughs 💘 & dislike relationships going on here. SMH... it turnes out I'm back to the audiobook version refusing to continue to ebook this...
Carly Robins sounds like she slowed down, right around the 15th chapter (maybe it was just a hard read) ....lol so I am forced to give her 4 🌟's. Im uncertain as 2 why the 1st 15 chapters seemed rushed? Trust me I didnt change anything after slowing her down to x95? She sounds like Emma from book1 after that? I plead the 5th on that however....
other than that the audiobook is totally amazing.

addicting

loved this book just as much as the first Emma book, though you can get away without reading the first one, I suggest reading , until I met her first, for the full effect! very entertaining mystery!

Story great, Narrator not.

The Narrator was changed from the first book. It was very difficult, particularly the male voices which were horrible. The story keeps you going. Just like the first, really clever, suspenseful.

Great sequel to book one

loved the story, it's refreshing to have flawed characters in stories and it kept my interest up until the end. It would have been better to have the narrator stay the same for both books as I listened to them back to back and the consistency of voices would gave been nice.
