Publisher's Summary

She thought her neighbors had the perfect life. But when murder rocks the suburbs, she becomes the perfect suspect....

Amber is barely holding it together. In the midst of a messy divorce, sometimes the only thing that gets her out of bed is spying on her handsome neighbor Caleb. She fantasizes about trading places with Caleb’s spouse and makes it no secret that she’d kill for that kind of life. Her words come back to haunt her when Caleb’s wife is murdered and Amber becomes a top suspect....

To catch the real killer and clear her name, Amber must peel back the hidden layers of a neighborhood she thought she knew. The clues lead her to shocking revelations about Caleb’s far-from-perfect marriage and her own failed relationship. As she digs deeper, Amber is certain of one thing: There’s no end to what people will do to keep their secrets behind closed doors....

The Girl in the Window is a spine-tingling psychological suspense novel. If you like unsettling suburban mysteries, complex characters, and jaw-dropping twists, then you’ll love Renée Pawlish’s mind-bending story.

Psychological Thriller!

This was a really good psychological thriller, and it's the first one that I have listened to that wasn't set in England. This story held my attention throughout the whole book. There were twists and turns which left me guessing until the very end. If you loved The Girl on the Train, then you will love this book, too! Jennifer Blom did a good job narrating this story although I did find several words being repeated near the end of the story which I assume are editing issues since I closed out my app and restarted thinking it was Audible but the repeated words were still there. I received this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

Maaake it stoppppp😫

I’m sorry, I’m returning this title and I’m only two hours into it.
Where did Renée Pawlish find this voice actor? (and I apologize to all actors for devaluing their craft by using the word actor)

Not only is her voice a monotone, but she constantly puts the emphasis on the wrong words (and pauses in the wrong places) which leads the listener to believe we’ve come to the end of the sentence....but oops, it’s not! “She felt everything was coming to an end...pause..IN A DRAMATIC way.”
She pronounced some very familiar words incorrectly. Naive was pronounced “nave”. 😬

I Purchased this title knowing that it wasn’t going to be a work of art, I just wanted to pass some mindless hours while I painted. But I couldn’t get through it.

Very stupid story

The story was not believable, the characters were just silly. The storyline was weak. It was a waste of my time listening to this story.

Just okay...

The Audible tape skips at the end which is annoying. Story is pretty interesting but it felt dragged out. I lost interest and the book started skipping.

Good story

I really enjoyed this book, even though it was a little bit predictable. It reminded me a lot of The Girl on the Train. My only complaint is that it ended rather abruptly. I think there could have been a little more of a buildup to the finale, but I still really enjoyed the book. It is worth listening to.

Girl in the Window

What do you expect to get if you are watching neighbor day by day. Typical suburban lives of wives that upping one another of your so called friends. Narrator did great job.

Enjoyable Mystery w/ Strong Narration

I received this audiobook for free in exchange for an honest review.

In keeping with honesty, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this story. I was previously unfamiliar with both the author and narrator. As it turns out, I am impressed by both.

Renee Pawlish crafted a mystery that was unveiled slowly, maintaining an edge of danger throughout. There were numerous times Amber, the protagonist, was in perilous situations; some were of her own doing, while others were happenstance. Amber also underwent significant growth, emerging from the despair of her failing marriage to show temerity and determination.
An element of this story that was thankfully omitted is the dreaded love triangle. All of the confusion and emotional waffling was limited to the plight of spousal rejection and pending divorce. Amber was pitiable, and for a time pitiful, but in ways I could sympathize with.
Jennifer Blom did a fantastic job narrating this story. Admittedly, I was initially a bit dismayed by the drab tone she began the book with, but it became evident after only a few minutes that she had interpreted and delivered the tone perfectly. Kudos to her! Additionally, her delivery of dialogue was fluid and natural. Nothing was ever forced, and she implemented subtle mannerisms, such as chuckles and conversational sounds, that truly crafted the illusion of being there and witnessing the characters. It was lovely to experience. Her male voices, sometimes a struggle for female narrators to deliver credibly, were believable. She never overreached to deepen her voice, but used subtle drops that conveyed the different gender.

In all, hearing this story was a pleasant, engaging experience, as both the story and its delivery were unexpectedly enjoyable.

Entertaining whodunnit

This book was a quick, easy listen and is a fairly straightforward whodunnit. Amber lives alone, is going through a divorce and often watches her neighbours through her window. When one of her neighbours is murdered Amber becomes a suspect and sets out to find the murderer.

Although the plot was fairly basic it did hold my interest even though I found Amber incredibly annoying!

I listened to the Audible version of the book and enjoyed the relaxed narration of Jennifer Blom.

Worth a read

Good book and I didn't guess the killer which makes a change. The narrator was excellent.
