Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Open Your Eyes by Paula Daly, read by Julie Maisey.

Haven’t we all wanted to pretend everything is fine?

Jane doesn’t like confrontation. Given the choice, she’ll let her husband, Leon, fight their battles. She’d prefer to focus on what’s going well, the good things in life.

But when best-selling crime author Leon is brutally attacked in the driveway of their home, in front of their two young children, Jane has to face reality. With her husband in a coma, Jane must open her eyes to the problems in her life, and the secrets that have been kept from her, if she’s to find out who hurt her husband - and why.

Maybe it’s time to face up to it all. Who knows what you might find....

Audible Heaven

I have listened to all of Paula Daly’s books and thoroughly enjoyed each of them, but this time she has surpassed herself! A brilliant plot that kept me riveted from beginning to end.
Excellent narration by Julie Maisey - I have been know to buy a book based on the narrator - I will certainly look for others performed by her.
Congratulations to you both.

It has a Beginning, a Middle and an End.

Great to find a story that is strong enough in its own right to be written straight through from beginning to end without the need to keep jumping between time frames and narrators in order to add artificial excitement.

It's a domestic, family thriller, with a normal woman set as the main character, constantly finding herself in jeopardy. The main characters (husband and wife) are writers or wanna-be writers, so interwoven with the plot, we get a wonderful insight into the world of writing and publishing. A particularly fine ending I thought.

The main plot revolves around the husband being attacked and left in a coma. The wife having no income is forced to dig into his affairs and starts finding things (and dangers) that she really wasn't expecting.

The book was well written and engaging. A good performance by Julie Maisey too - except perhaps for the few seconds of a Northern Irish accent!

Absolutely loved bed it, I am usually good at predicting the plot but, not with this one.

Loved the narrator who made the story real. Interesting story line that kept me guessing. I don’t often do reviews (I know I should) but, this one kept my interest from start to finish.

Gripping

Gripping right from the start.
A refreshing change and totally unexpected. The main character was really relatable, a solid story from start to finish with excellent narration. Have already downloaded my next from this author.

Different from her other books

Unnerved me at the start because not a gentle build up before the high drama However gripping and a brilliant plot. Highs and lows were constant until the very end. Very insightful into the impact of a brain injury.
I loved it.
