Publisher's summary

After 30 years of marriage, Rachel observes herself amid a matrimonial nightmare. At first, she sought to write off Seth's nighttime escapades and drinking as a midlife crisis. The local sheriff hands her a foreclosure notice because her mortgage hasn't been paid. Rachel perceives that something is awry.

Devastated and needing space to reflect, Rachel accepts a respite from her best friend Lauren to hang around at her cabin in the Allegheny Mountains for Thanksgiving, where she reconnects with Lauren and her family.

When Rachel tries to understand Seth's change of heart, the schemes of her husband, mother-in-law, and the entire Blackstone crew unravels. The family she married into became an illusion.

As her 30-year marriage dissolves, Rachel realizes that getting into the Blackstone family is one thing, but getting out alive is another.

Desperate to get off of this roller-coaster ride without shattering, Rachel must figure out the shrewdest way to pull herself up out of this turbulent charade.

Can she stay alive through the worst episodes that marred her down to her knees?

Realistic story

A realistic tale, told with some sound effects. The narrator did a good job of making the story sound real.

Overall a good listen.

I received this book free for an unbiased review.

The story is good in premise, but a bit far fetched. I think the story was well written and easy to listen to. I was also confused by the naming of the book. The Hunt is kinda misleading. But I'd listen to another book by the author. It did keep me entertained throughout.

Interesting book with twists

The book follows Rachel and her life. She is a wife who finds that her husband just doesn't seem to be the same as when they were first married. What could have brought about the change?

Many weird things happen within the book that leave Rachel so confused. There is so many twists in this book, it will keep you on the edge wondering what will happen next.

Narrator did a great job.

I received a free review copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving am honest review.

Keeps you on the edge of your seat

The Hunt grabs you at the beginning and doesn’t let go. Rachel’s world is taking a complete shift when her husband if almost 30 years suddenly changes and becomes someone she doesn’t recognize. After Seth tells her he wants a divorce, he finds her and proceeds to hit her car and slash her tires. Rachel’s best friend, Lauren, provides her a place to escape. Lauren’s brother Cole is going through a divorce also and forms a support for Rachel that she desperately needs as things get stranger and stranger and her husband and his family get more dangerous. The secrets and lies just keep coming. This book is an experience that you really need.

Gripping

I liked this twisted story. It was a page Turner with twists and turns. It was fast paced and action-packed. Becky Brabham did a great job with the narration.

Must read or listen

This book has it all!
Author included marital problems, nasty divorce proceedings, backstabbing, extra marital affairs, stalking, explosions, nasty ex’s, troublesome families members, twins and even some courtroom drama.
Rachel is on the fence with her marriage to Seth.
His verbally abusive, downright mean, borderline alcoholic and very secretive behavior has pushed Rachel too far.
Upon returning from a trip to stay with her parents for reflection, she finds her world shattered.
Rachel’s home is in foreclosure, her husband serves her divorce papers, her mother-in-law threatens her, and trashes her tires while Rachel is still in car.
And to top it if, she has been seeing a blue mustang car following her for a couple weeks.
What more could go wrong?
Will her budding attraction for Cole ruin her attempt at a no-fault divorce?
Or will Seth’s crazy family get to her before she even makes it to courtroom?
Or will Seth blow up her home with Rachel stil in it?
A must read or listen

Don't Judge This One by its Cover

This book was not at all what I expected it to be based upon the cover and blurb. In fact, the cover has nothing whatsoever to do with the story. After finishing the book, I went back and re-read the blurb and found that it is accurate. I just had completely different expectations based on the cover. That being said, I found the story to be mostly enjoyable and well-written. I always round up to give the benefit of the doubt but would have probably landed closer to 3.5. LIGHT SPOILERS: I felt like the main character should have noticed more clues or red flags concerning the husband's behavior before the book just jumped into "he changed suddenly six months ago." Based on the rest of the story, she should have noticed other odd behaviors throughout their marriage that then all made sense as she discovered the truth. It just felt a little too abrupt diving into the thrills. Don't get me wrong, more action is always better than too much explanation, but this felt a little too abrupt. Also, as a former LEO, there was another odd plot point. The husband committed a crime, for which they had proof in terms of the weapon, physical evidence, and statements, yet they never arrested or charged him with that crime. Instead, it was just used in a protective order hearing. In real life, he would have been arrested and the arrest and subsequent trial result would have been used in the other hearing, not the initial evidence. END SPOILERS I'm being picky, I realize, but that sort of thing stands out to me.

The narrator did a fine job. She used a few sound effects throughout the production, which was odd to me. First of all, it is not standard in current audiobook productions. Second, they inserted sound effects for some things but not others with no rhyme or reason as to why. If you are going to do effects, you should commit to it and use them for every reasonable sound. In other words, why use an effect for an alarm but not a gunshot?
