Publisher's summary

Rock Paper Scissors is the latest exciting domestic thriller from the queen of the killer twist, New York Times best-selling author Alice Feeney.

Think you know the person you married? Think again....

Things have been wrong with Mr. and Mrs. Wright for a long time. When Adam and Amelia win a weekend away to Scotland, it might be just what their marriage needs. Self-confessed workaholic and screenwriter Adam Wright has lived with face blindness his whole life. He can’t recognize friends or family, or even his own wife.

Every anniversary the couple exchanges traditional gifts - paper, cotton, pottery, tin - and each year Adam’s wife writes him a letter that she never lets him read. Until now. They both know this weekend will make or break their marriage, but they didn’t randomly win this trip. One of them is lying, and someone doesn’t want them to live happily ever after.

Ten years of marriage. Ten years of secrets. And an anniversary they will never forget.

I could feel myself losing IQ points while listening to this.

Not only is the plot of this book absolutely ridiculous, it’s also poorly written. Preposterous, nonsensical, and just embarrassingly bad. Read something else; ANYTHING else. Help me help you, spend your credit elsewhere!

Wonderfully Twisty!

It isn't very often I find a book that can keep me guessing but Alice Feeney has done just that with this novel! The best thriller/suspense book I have read this year!

Disappointing and ridiculous

I enjoyed the author's other books, but this one is a huge disappointment. The story is ridiculous and far-fetched. The characters are very one-dimensional and poorly developed. Bob the dog is the only likeable character.

Excellent in Every Way

This is the first book by Alice Feeney I’ve read, and it was superb. I’m going to read all of her work. I’m a pretty experienced thriller reader/listener, but this one had me fooled until the end. And, the narration was perfect.

Do not understand the high rating

Shallow, one dimensional, bitter characters. None is sympathetic. Plot twists do not make any sense.

Definitely a page turner!

This book has every aspect to draw a reader in and keep them wanting more..then a sudden realization in the book takes the reader aback and put the pieces of the puzzle back together. What a fantastic stimulating psychological thriller!

MEH

Do not waste your time or money on this book. I only finished it in hopes it would make sense but it never did.

This will be a return

Storyline was buried amongst the never ending sexual encounters by the main character. Should have been listed under soft porn, as this was not a thriller, a horror story nor a mystery. The actual story was predictable.
Narrator tone was monotone throughout the whole book.

End fell flat

Too many twists in the end and they all just fell kind of flat. The last chapter was totally unnecessary.

Parody of Gothic Horror ... Am-I-Right?!

You have got to be kidding. Every trope of a gothic horror novel is stirred into this sodden mix of a melodrama, and the result would be laughable if it weren't an insult to anyone who paid for the privilege of listening. The narrations are florid and painfully drawn-out - especially that of the woman, which needs to be listened to at 1.3 speed if one wishes not to twitch with impatience at the preciousness of her enunciation.

Total waste of time and credit. You've been warned!
