Publisher's Summary

From best-selling author A.J. Banner comes a dazzling new novel of psychological suspense in the vein of S.J. Watson's Before I Go to Sleep and Mary Kubica's The Good Girl that questions just how much we can trust the people around us.

Thirty-four-year-old marine biologist Kyra Winthrop remembers nothing about the diving accident that left her with a complex form of memory loss. With only brief flashes of the last few years of her life, her world has narrowed to a few close friendships on the island where she lives with her devoted husband, Jacob.

But all is not what it seems. Kyra begins to have visions - or are they memories? - of a rocky marriage, broken promises, and cryptic relationships with the island residents, whom she believes to be her friends.

As Kyra races to uncover her past, the truth becomes a terrifying nightmare. A twisty, immersive thriller, The Twilight Wife will keep listeners enthralled through the final, shocking twist.

Mediocre, ordinary listen. Would not recommend.

With all the great books of the psychological thriller and women's story genre out there these days, this read is a waste of time. It had all the right components, but the timeline is rough, uneven and therefore difficult to follow. Characters we're uninteresting and lines we're repeated over and over (I'm sorry, are you OK, I'm fine ) with no progression. These factors combine to make it very difficult to hold the reader's interest. Time after time, I would have to rewind and repeat because my mind had wandered. I struggled to finish. Just didn't care.

I usually enjoy Ms. Campbell's narrations and chose this book because of her, but her usually crisp, clear voice had been replaced by a ridiculous breathy, wispy version of Marilyn Monroe. Very annoying and difficult to imagine any kind of strength or intelligence behind it! Pass.

Great Read!

This book had me hooked from the first chapter. I immediately felt in sync with the main character and couldn't wait to unravel her story.

The storyline reminds me of The Girl On The Train- dark deception that slowly reveals itself through memories and flashbacks. I loved the way the flashbacks were seamlessly intertwined into the present day narrative.

It was a tiny bit slow and repetitive in some parts and I would have liked the 'big reveal' (of Kyra finding out the truth) to go on a bit longer without Jacob finding out- the ending came very quickly for me. That being said I still really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone who's looking for a good and easy mystery read!

+ the audible narration is two thumbs up!

Narration was torture

The story was very entertaining and had a surprisingly fun twist at the end. The narrator's slow, breathy voice was so painful to listen to, however, that I had to actually speed up the narration to make it sound like a normal person speaking.

Good

Takes a little while to pick up but it does. Good narration. At first some of the transitions were fast and seemed out of place until you realize this is reflecting the kyra's way of processing thought after the accident.

Annoying Narrator Decent Story

Decently entertaining story with a good twist. I couldn't stand the narrator though. She made the character speak in a really annoying soft whisper. The main character was annoying too. just really...dumb. Another character would say something and she would reply "Oh?" or repeat what they say as a question. "My mother had a garden." "A garden?" 3 stars. Will be avoiding​ this narrator on future books as she made the character seem like a soft spoken, vapid idiot.

Not as suspenseful as hoped but still enjoyable!

I'm new to the crime thriller genre and haven't read some of the books other readers are comparing this book to (Girl On The Train, Gone Girl). I thought this was a good intro book into a psychologically twisted plot without being too dark or too sick. the book moves along quickly with the main character uncovering parts of her missing past after suffering from memory loss from a head injury. there are flashbacks and things that trigger recovery of memories and events throughout the book that are easy to follow and some clues as to what may really have happened in her accident. I like it.

Good twist...

I saw the ending twist a little differently, but a good twist all the same. Didn't love the breathy narrative, but it fit well with the story.
