Publisher's Summary

The perfect house or the perfect lie? 

The moment my husband showed me Cliffside - a sleek and modern glass home perched on the edge of the jagged Big Sur clifftops - I fell in love. And right there and then I made a pact with myself. I am never leaving this house. 

But when my husband was killed on the perilous roads leading up to the house, weeks after we moved in, I had a decision to make - leave the home I love and start a new life or stay and shut myself off from the world? I am never leaving this house. 

As I pieced together my shattered life, my mind began to play tricks on me. Footsteps along the beach, leading to my home, then blood-red flowers left on my doorstep with a note that read "Looking at you". So I retreated back to the safety of my glass refuge once again. I am never leaving this house. 

But now, as I stare out of the towering windows of my perfect home, I know there is someone out there staring back. I know that they are watching my every move, waiting to make me pay for my past mistakes. 

This pulse-racing psychological thriller from USA Today best-selling author Arianne Richmonde will have you hooked. If you are a fan of The Woman in the Window, Gone Girl, and Netflix’s You, you will love The Wife’s House. Prepare to stay up all night!

Skip This One

I usually like Helen Duff, but this book was a fail for me. She’s doing WAAAY too much. (Her pronunciation of ‘Juan’ was pretty funny/grating too). Unbelievably stupid decisions made by heroine; she deserved whatever she got. I couldn’t finish.

Thank goodness for the end

The narrarator is so aggravating. Who talks like that. I was going to return the book simply because her voice was so annoying. I hung in there. At least it had a good ending.

Spoiler

In my opinion, this was a cheap way to end the book. Just kill everyone. “The End” really???

great story I couldn't put the book down.

but I will not read this author again because I do not like the language that was used. It was totally unnecessary to put in such trash and what was otherwise a great book.

Book is suspenseful

I enjoy the authors use of words I was hooked but towards the end it got a little to much for me I was overwhelmed.

Slow and predictable...tough to follow.

The characters are sublime and dull. The ending takes liberties with the readers imagination.

Don’t even try! I gave it four attempts.

The narration was just plain annoying. I’ve listened to Helen Duff before, however, her dialect and vocals in this one are extremely exaggerated and I just couldn’t get past a few chapters. Her irritating voice grated on my nerves. Just goes to show, a good book can indeed be ruined by a poor narrator.

The grip got tighter as the pages turned

I actually enjoyed the narrator and thought she acted the characters very well. This is a light read, not academic but super all the same.

There is not much to like

The story is mundane and there is little little magic. The reader arch style and the little gasp at the end of each sentence is particularly aggravating - tip - speed it up at it sounds almost normal.
