I'm not a bad person, but maybe I did a bad thing....
Life is good for Anna Wright. She's a successful media executive working for one of the UK's largest TV corporations. She's got a great boyfriend, some close friends and a lovely home. She adores her dog, Wispa, and she loves to run to help her destress.
But Anna's perfect life starts to crumble from the moment when, out jogging on the Heath one day, she meets a handsome stranger. She takes a route into unfamiliar territory, and then she has to face the consequences.
There's a dark, growing creepiness as the atmosphere becomes unsettled, and, as Anna's professional life becomes increasingly pressured and poisonous, her obsession with the intriguing stranger intensifies.
I could not stop listening... so addictive. such a great story, highly recommended. scary and realistic.

Was hooked all the way through but the ending was predicable and the book ended rather quickly and sudden
So many questions unanswered...

I enjoyed the audiobook version of this novel. The female protagonist and victim gets herself in all kinds of trouble in this excellent piece of crime fiction. Wrong place at the wrong time. She also has a habit of meeting a number of unsavoury characters. It must also be said, though, that she is not a 'little miss innocent' and her personality grates at times. There are one or two nice twists and the novel runs at a good pace. I was amused by the confrontation over Bell's ashes. Highly recommended.

I loved this audio book , narrated very well , really brought it to life. I like Anna although she is very self obsessed. Wispa the dog plays a lead role so I wondered at the beginning did you have to be a dog lover to enjoy the book! It's very exciting and gripping , i throughly enjoyed it.

Where does Rebound rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I struggle to find a decent audio book that keeps me listening, but this one did. So definitely in my top 5.
Have you listened to any of Nathalie Buscombe’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Haven't listened to one of hers before.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
This book has funny parts, sad parts, happy parts and gripping parts, so covered everything.
Any additional comments?
Really good, easy to listen to, good storyline, good characters.Loved Wispa and how all her actions were brought into the story, I have a chocolate lab and some of the things Wispa did made me laugh.

A good thriller, but the main character was a self-centred toff, who I could feel no sympathy for. I'm a foodie, but found the constant references to what she ate for practically every meal irritating & unnecessary. The worst aspect was without doubt the arrogant sloany accent of the narrator. I almost gave up on the book because her accent was so annoying!

I am fan of physiological thriller - but this isn't
However if sex with strangers in the open and long boring discriptions of days in office is what you like - then this is book for you
Almost every character awful and unbelievable - best character the dog - who is neglected during sex scenes that take place when walking dog
Am embarrassed I finished this book it's so bad
A literary chick flicks with nauseating product placing and a very weak plot - best to avoid unless you crave boredom
i did like this book but there is nothing that gets the heart racing in it.
Ok, this was written well, I enjoyed the story and the narration. I did think it was who it was in the end, which is unusual for me, considering there could have been 50 people who did it, (ok, slight exaggeration) because every male the heroine came into contact with seemed to fancy her, want her or she wanted.
She did have an obsession with sticking to her favourite running route despite it being the centre of crimes, which left me speechless at times..... She wasn't stupid. It almost made me feel like she was attention seeking. I was addicted to this character and her behaviour and dealings with the people in her life.
Enjoyable, a character that leaves you thinking for sure.
I was disappointed with this book. I was annoyed with what the main character Anne would do. I found myself asking why she would put herself in dangerous situations & didn't like the way too graphic sex scenes. The narrator was great with the different voices though.
I enjoyed this book so much I bought the book as gifts for several of my friends. The narration, by Nathalie Buscombe, bought the book to life. Her performance was impeccable and the pace, for me, added to the suspense..,. Refreshingly original. Will be on the look out for both author & narrator. Marvellous.
