Publisher's Summary

Alexander thinks it will be easy to break up with his mistress because he has done it many times before with other women. But Karen is different. She doesn't want to be dispensable and decides to use Alexander's wife in her plans. His wife doesn't suspect anything, which is perfect for Karen. Nothing can stand in the way of her happiness. Or, so she thinks. After her beautiful plan is in place and she assumes everything is under her control, things begin to take a different turn. Suddenly, nothing is under her control. Skeletons are pulled out of everyone's closets and lives are destroyed.

In this book no one is innocent - until proved otherwise.

    Story
    "A great listen with a surprising bad/good guy"
    Any additional comments?

    First, the good. This was a great story, an incredible thriller and a really intense no-that-did-not-just-happen ending. The narration was incredibly well-done and I got completely lost in the story.<br/><br/>Now, the bad. The good guy was such a bad person. The lines blurred. I no longer knew who to root for. What a ride!!

    Story
    "twisted soap opera"

    If you're looking for an indulgent and juicy story - this is the book for you. It has all the ingredients of an easy read, soap opera characters and novella plot line. Nothing too predictable, but also nothing too far for the imagination.

    "Pop Go's Weasel"

    Wow is all I can say as to not spoil the reader's up coming excitement.... I believe this book is so good... u never see what's coming next. This factor will
    have you wondering if this audible book choice was wise?
    Hold on to your seat and prepare for the ride cause Salnikova is ready willing and for sure prepared to take u for quite a rollercoaster spin. I found Julie at first thought to be an airhead...and Karen a back stabbing money pinching hoe đŸ˜¯ the least expected person will
    not be your garden variety rotten apple, in fact there are a few normal Golden Crisp woman with the ability to cut a cheating husband buster's throat ...however this certainly is a Blockbuster Hit, that u must listen to every word to ultimately enjoy!
    Alexander makes the perfect villain every women would just absolutely love to hate.
    His Character is do well written, it leaves the reader thinking of ways to execute him much earlier then even the
    Author's attempt at maiming him forever. Guilty as Charged I scream for the stud muffin steel brain hunk....A Must Read by Author DeAnn DeVille..Writer...Blogger...Narrator.

    I love dark gritty thrillers, mystery, psychological, police procedural, and horror with the romance set at a minimum to none.

    Story
    "IF YOU LIKED GONE GIRL, THIS ONE IS NOT TO MISS!"
    If you could sum up Rotten Apple in three words, what would they be?

    I loved this story. I was given a copy so I didn't know what to expect as this was my frst time listening to the author and narrator but WOW, so good! It was a refreshing and went in directions I didn't expect. I have bought many audio books that say its for people that liked Gone Girl and everytime I am dissapointed. This book did not compare itself to Gone Girl, I Am. It's not the same story as Gone Girl but it has that kind of vibe yet the story is unique.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I am a hard core listener of mystery thrillers and often times, the stories start to all sound the same. I will remember this book because it is a really unique story. Just when I thought I had it figured out, the story would surprise me and that rarely happens to me.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I would rather not spoil it for others. So many scenes are so deliciously uncomfortable and satisfying. I enjoyed the entire story.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This story has all the things I love to listen to and feel. Surprise, intrigue, nervousness, shock, and satisfaction.


    Any additional comments?

    More please from this author! I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher. Even though I got this one for free, I enjoyed this story so much so I will be happily looking to buy more books from this author.

    "OH SO GOOD!!!"

    I enjoyed every minute of this book. I wish I could say I didn't see that coming... there were some surprises and overall kept my interest from start to finish. Fast paced, easy to understand and listen to. Wonderful characters, some you love to hate.

    Story
    "Nothing Rotten here..."
    What made the experience of listening to Rotten Apple the most enjoyable?

    The narrator was excellent. The slightest lilt in her voice for different characters made them believable and not cartoonish.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Rotten Apple?

    My most memorable moment was when the killer was revealed. Although I called it early in the book, the reasons were very interesting and unexpected.


    What about Stephanie Dillard’s performance did you like?

    Stephanie did a great job with the character voices, but also never left her cadence the same throughout. Each sentence was read stand-alone, and it seemed as if she was truly into the story, which made me that much more interested. Sometimes a continued cadence by a narrator lulls you to sleep - that never happened in this book.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I wanted to feel for Alexander's plight, but I never found him to be a sympathetic character, although I get the feeling I was supposed to feel sorry for him at times.


    Any additional comments?

    The middle of the book drags a bit - there is a lot of information that could have been collapsed into shorter chapters (or combined into one chapter). I understand what the author was going for in building the story arc, but the information came so slowly at times that I was ready to get to the climax of the story. Great narration got me through those parts.
