Held my interest

This was one of the author’s better books - but not by much. There were certain events that were not very plausible. However, if the book was longer with more detail, character development, and backstory, it would’ve been significantly more believable. I maintained interest throughout, even though I predicted the outcome.

wonderfully entertaining book

I absolutely loved it. the story was fantastic. I could hardly wait to listen between chores. in fact I skipped some so I could curl up and listen again. and the narrator was amazing. I'm going to look for another book by these 2 brilliant women right now. Thank You!! Susan Straathof

umm...

I am a fan of Shalini and I found this a little diffrent from Shalini Bolands other thrillers. When I saw this novel I immediately grabbed for it. I have listened and enjoyed the narration. I had a problem with the storyline it was good however it wasnt her best work.
It felt a tad bit forced. I'll look forward to a much better thriller next time I'm sure of it.

It was..interesting

As others have said around the end of the book it is predictable. I can say that there were a few turns i didn’t see coming which is why I gave it 4 stars out of 5. I had a few predictions of what might be going on but it wasn’t confirmed until maybe 3 or 4 chapters to the end. I’m kind of over the woman with a shaky past so no one believes her theme. Overall, still enjoyable

Everything I Wanted

I really like how this author wrote this book. There were so many surprising turns that It really held my attention. Also, unlike so many books these days, it actually had an ending. All the loose ends were tied up. You weren't left wondering what was happening. A good read!

Pleasant surprise

I almost gave up on this one fairly early on. It seemed like the protagonist was going to be just another self-destructive female lead with no backbone. Wrong. Turns out to be a good plot and very likable characters. Well done.

Guesses the plot from the beginning. Good story, but a cliche from others I’ve read. No “surprise ending “. Great reader!

A cliche from beginning to end, though masterfully read. I would rate the storyline unremarkable, due to others I’ve read with the same plot.

I enjoyed this book - although it was a bit far-fetched at times! Nonetheless, I kept going so it can't have been too bad!

Nice listen

I’m not a 100% sure of the genre however I really enjoyed this book, it was just a nice listen! I wouldn’t say it’s particularly challenging or has a lot of twists that are unexpected but I actually cared about the main character and it’s been a while since that has been the case in many books I’ve read lately.
