Publisher's Summary

I was young enough not to understand that my life was different. Colin became the one person that I could count on to protect me. He suffered for the both of us by carrying the burden of our secret. We were the lucky few that got a chance to start over. A fake family, a new home, and a pretty little life built on lies. But while our lives continued to intertwine, we were put on very different paths. Now it's only a matter of time before they collide and the beast behind the beauty is exposed.

    Any additional comments?

    Pretty Little Things was an interesting and enjoyable listen with a unique storyline. I was immediately drawn in to the story, although I wasn't really sure where it was going at first. As it progressed things became much clearer, although the back and forth between past and present was confusing at times. This was not a "rainbows and unicorns" kind of romance and there were some pretty dark aspects to the story, with an unexpected twist at the end. The narrator did a good job with the characters.

    Overall I really liked Pretty Little Things but it did require a little concentration to keep everything straight. I would recommend this.

    "Was hoping for more!"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I would have to say no, the book and narrating just fell a little short in opinion.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Teresa Mummert? Why or why not?

    Maybe I would try another book, this book was good, just not great.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Sarah Puckett?

    I would also try Sarah again, but It needed work.


    Do you think Pretty Little Things needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    The story was HEA so I don't see a reason for a 2nd book.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall the book was OK the plot was good, just needed more.

    I was given this audiobook for free from audiobook boom for my unbiased review.

    "let me confused a lot of the time..."

    The story is intriguing and I found I wanted to like it, but found it hard to keep up as it went back and forth between present & past. I also feel as if it didn't really clear things up. It gives you bits and pieces of their past, but not enough to fill in all the gaps.
    It jumps around so much I found my self confused.
    other then that, I think it could of been an amazing story.

    "Dark Contemporary Romance..."

    The story is intriguing but I found it hard to keep up as it went back and forth between present & past. Perhaps it would have been easier to follow in a book format versus audiobook.

    There are some pretty abusive descriptions. It can be quite disturbing specially because all my favorite dark romances do not have the "hero" continue to sleep around and act abusive towards the "heroine" and other females throughout the book.

    The narration was ok. It was more like a reading than heartfelt & emotional. The narrator did not immerse herself in the characters. It sounded a bit monotone to me.

    The story had potential but the hopping around made it confusing. I did not understand her relationship with Jake. He seemed important at first but not so much towards the end. He was a peculiar character anyways.

    They were part of a cult and were able to scape and find a wealthy lawyer to help them. They pretended to be a family to blend in. Annie and Colin would tell everyone they are brother & sister. The leader of the cult Taylor is pretty sick. There are some unexpected twists towards the end.

    The story did not flow as well as I had expected it. And the conclusion did not really leave a happy feeling in the pit of my stomach. It was intended to be a HEA... You will need to read it to understand.

    Story
    "Down a rabbit hole a trickle at a time."
    What did you love best about Pretty Little Things?

    This story was unique in its plot, and had a great buildup. It reveals things in small increments from the past, and it goes from not making much sense to slowly making you understand. It's a different way of storytelling, and while I was unsure at first, I ended up loving the way it flowed.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The two main characters Colin and Annie have a strange relationship in the beginning, but as the story unfolds you understand their relationship way more.


    What three words best describe Sarah Puckett’s performance?

    Okay, monotone, read. While the narration wasn't horrible, it wasn't really great either. It was just eh, okay. I felt like it was being read to me more than being performed, and this book would have been better for me exsperiance wise had it been more performed. I think I would have been more okay with narration, had there been a change of voice between the alternate POV's, that could be deferential in identifying who was speaking.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. It wasn't very long and was intriguing enough to keep you on the hook.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall I enjoyed the plot, the story, and the characters. Think I would have enjoyed it better had I read this rather than listening to it, because I feel that the narration didn't do the storyline justice in this instance, though it wasn't horrible. I would recommend listening to a sample before hand to make sure that the narration won't put you off, like it did me. I was given this audiobook for free from audiobook boom for my unbiased review.

    Story
    "Pulls you in"

    This books starts off very raw from the very start and never looks back. I was hooked from the opening and listened to it in almost one sitting. I love that the book goes back and forth in time to give the reader/listener the back story while not revealing everything at once. This is my first book by this author and it will not be my last.

    I liked that the author didn't just write the 2 main characters she also used the subcharacters in the book too so we got a little insight into them too. It brought even more depth into the story.

    I highly recommend this book to anyone, it isn't too raw but it does touch on some darker subjects such as violence, murder, rape, etc so it isn't for everyone but it's not as dark as other books. It's a great book and I would listen to it again.

    "Great Read"
    Any additional comments?

    Pretty Little Things by Teresa Mummert was a great book. This book was not what I was expecting but in the best of ways. I loved how Teresa gave us a little bit of information at a time from the past. Annabel and Teresa must start a new life, luckily they find a man that wants to help them. I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to read more by Teresa Mummert. This is a must read book.

    "Intriguing Listen"

    Pretty Little Things was a quick listen with an original story line.

    I like that I didn’t know exactly what was going on. As a listener, I enjoy having some twists and turns and a little bit of unpredictability. I was hoping it would be a little darker. And a little more taboo. But thats just me ;) I enjoyed the story, I just wish it were a little longer.

    "I Loved This!"

    I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher, and/or narrator

    I was enthralled within this story from the moment I read the synopsis. It gripped me from the beginning and throughout. I couldn't stop listening and was looking forward to getting into the car so I could listen to it again.

    The characters where damaged and likeable and couldn't help but want the best for them. The backstory was so intriguing that I would like to know more than the slight flashbacks that we were given within the story.

    I will most assuredly be listening to this again!
