Publisher's summary

A gripping psychological thriller with a heart-pounding twist

She lied to her daughter to save her family.

Everyone knows Leona would do anything for her daughter Beth: she moved to Church Langdon to send Beth to the best school, worked hard to build a successful business to support them and found them the perfect little cottage to call home. Leona and Beth hike together, shop together, share their hopes and fears with one another. People say they’re more like best friends than mother and daughter.

It’s the relationship every mother dreams of.

But their closeness means that Beth struggles to make friends. Her mother has kept her sheltered from the world. She’s more reliant on her mother’s love. More vulnerable.

When Beth finds an envelope hidden under the floorboards of their home, the contents make her heart stop. Everything she thought she knew about her mother is a lie. And she realises there is no one she can turn to for help.

What if you’ve been protected from strangers your whole life, but the one person you can’t trust is the person closest to home?

What She Saw is a gripping psychological thriller with an incredible twist that will make your jaw drop. If you love The Girl on the Train, Gone Girl, or anything by B. A. Paris you’ll be consumed by this.

Transporting and Gripping

Masterfully written to every detail making you feel you know the area, can picture the scenes and truly know the characters. At least you think you know them until a plot twist throws you a bit. But this is a good thing. Just when you think you have a weak female character on your hands (can't stand that), what makes her seem weak turns out to be her fighting to keep a dangerous past at bay and protect her family while fighting her own demons and trying to live up to the demands of life. Every time you think you've git it and even as the story unfolds, hang on because a turn of events is headed your way. The performance was excellent.

Gripping!

Enjoyed the twist and turns in this book. Listen cautiously though if you have experienced domestic violence. That part is hard to listen too, even though I've been blessed not to have experienced DV. I do recommend it, great author!

Mostly a really good thriller

This book came with many excellent reviews and, for the most part, lived up to them. The plot device was interesting and carried out well for about three quarters of the book. At that point, predictable melodrama set in and a soap opera ending left a sour taste that doesn't encourage me to read anything more by this author.

Worth a credit for sure

Really liked this one. Although you figure out the main twist the final one you won't see coming.

anything but predictable

she does a good job of keeping you on your toes. I thought I had things figured out, but she gives some twists.

Excellent

Fans of k l Slater and Shalini Boland will love this book! I’m not sure where the title comes from though, but that’s not a big deal. Great story and characters.

This book was terrible

I never ever write reviews. But I do read them because I want to know before hand if this book is good. This book was torture to get through. It wasn’t thrilling, it was so boring and so predictable

Blah

If you have 5 hours to wait for a story to get going, like in traffic or getting a root canal (a long one) then perhaps it's worth a credit. I buy unabridged audiobooks to help assuage my time driving but my word, do NOT expect Gone Girl or any of the like in this book. Below average. Audible needs a bonified psychological thriller group that is just that and not some lifetime narrated story.
