Publisher's Summary

Molly Chatwell has a beautiful house, a handsome husband, two children, and a job she likes. It all seems so perfect, but when her two children leave for university, she realizes her life has become dull and empty. When her husband refuses to go away on a trip with her, Molly decides to go alone. But what should have been a relaxing break turns into a nightmare. 

Back at home in London, Molly tries to put it all behind her, but when the police arrive at her door and tell her a body has been found with connections to her, she realizes her perfect life is under threat. 

A gripping psychological thriller full of twists and turns that will keep you guessing until the very end, The Perfect Life is the perfect listen for fans of domestic noir, Louise Jensen, B. A. Paris, and K.L. Slater.

Boring

Very slow and very boring. The story never picks up or comes to a real climax. It just is, and then it ends.

Boring

Yet another book on audible that has positive reviews that I don’t feel it deserves. I could barely even make it to the end to see who did what. I really didn’t care at all. In my opinion there was no build up. So therefore there were no good twists or surprises. It just fell flat. The only reason why I struggled though to the end was because I have been returning so many books lately that I actually feel bad. I don’t expect to love every book but quite a few that I have listened to in the last few months are outright terrible.

Not what I hoped for

I hadn’t read any of this authors novels . A first ,this is also likely to be my last .
Slow and really quite predictable from half way through .
The narration didn’t help but it was a weak plot stretched to an in of its life
Not for me and will return ☹️

Boring - went nowhere

Boring, didn't really go anywhere, and didn't really make much sense! kept having to go back chapters as I thought I had missed a key part, but I hadn't! it just droned on in my ears!

Gob-smackingly bad!

Less-than-average plot exacerbated by the worst narration I've EVER encountered. Not sure whether it's the result of elocution lessons but the narrator's diction was overly exaggerated and incredibly irritating. A good narration is when it's read well; a great narration is when it's performed well. Regrettably, this was neither.
