Publisher's Summary

What if everything you think is true and real about your life is a lie?

Ava's life in the coastal South appears nearly perfect after her recent marriage to the powerful and handsome Mitchell Carson. She loves her husband and the family they have created. Even Mitchell's young son from a previous marriage, Jack, with his superhero ambitions, can't imagine life without Ava. Outwardly, Mitchell appears to be a caring husband and doting father, but as Ava soon discovers, there is a dark side to Mitchell Carson that she never imagined.

When Graham Thomas, a lawyer with a secret past, stumbles into Ava's life, everything changes. Mitchell's jealous streak emerges after an innocent encounter between Graham and Ava, and Mitchell soon convinces himself that Ava is unfaithful. When Mitchell starts divorce proceedings and a custody war, Jack is caught in the middle, which soon makes him question Ava's pure intentions. As Ava searches for a way to save her family, she begins to uncover her husband's secret past and capacity for unhinged jealousy and rage.

Excellent listen...

Would you consider the audio edition of Center of Gravity to be better than the print version?

I could never choose between reading and listening as I enjoy both. This is the first book of Laura McNeill's that I have listened to and definitely plan to read. This is absolutely one I will listen to again and again.

What other book might you compare Center of Gravity to and why?

Survivor in Death by J.D. Robb. The way these stories unfold keeps you intrigued. These are excellent novels. How they are written and read is so vivid, the reader and listener can picture in their mind all that is happening.

What about Lisa Larsen’s performance did you like?

Lisa Larsen's story telling ability is awesome. She, like narrator Susan Erickson, recites the book so well that a person can visualize the characters.

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

Totally mixed - laughter, fear, outrage and profound satisfaction while listening to this story unfold.

Any additional comments?

Can't wait to listen and read Laura McNeill's next book, which I hope will continue with Lisa Larsen as narrator.

Excellent narration of a gripping story

A good story that keeps you listening. Well developed characters brought to life by an excellent narrator. The story has six first-person accounts interwoven in the timeline of the story. And you always know whose view of the action is being told.
