Publisher's Summary

A moment on the subway platform changes two women’s lives forever - a debut thriller that will take your breath away.

A total stranger on the subway platform whispers, “Take my baby.”

She places her child in your arms. She says your name.

Then she jumps....

In a split second, Morgan Kincaid’s life changes forever. She’s on her way home from work when a mother begs her to take her baby, then places the infant in her arms. Before Morgan can stop her, the distraught mother jumps in front of an oncoming train.

Morgan has never seen this woman before, and she can’t understand what would cause a person to give away her child and take her own life. She also can’t understand how this woman knew her name.

The police take Morgan in for questioning. She soon learns that the woman who jumped was Nicole Markham, prominent CEO of the athletic brand Breathe. She also learns that no witness can corroborate her version of events, which means she’s just become a murder suspect.

To prove her innocence, Morgan frantically retraces the last days of Nicole’s life. Was Nicole a new mother struggling with paranoia or was she in danger? When strange things start happening to Morgan, she suddenly realizes she might be in danger, too.

Woman on the Edge is a pulse-pounding, propulsive thriller about the lengths to which a woman will go to protect her baby - even if that means sacrificing her own life.

Can I at least get some cheese with all the Whine?

I think I would have liked this book if I had read it. To be fair, I liked the premise and felt the author did a good job weaving it all together. I found the big ‘twist’ predictable, but I read and listen to a LOT of psychological thrillers. However - I just could NOT get over how utterly whiney and annoying the narrator made Morgan! Even when she was yelling - it was whiney. When she was assertive - whiney. Terrified - whiney. Vulnerable- whiney. You get my point. Ruined the whole character for me.

Couldn’t stop listening......

Great story from beginning to end. This is a page turner. Listened to it in two day. So disappointed when it finished.

Chapters of angst.

Well, I should have known! Book is about PPD but really not. Highly recommended. Yada Yada! Not my cup of tea. White knuckled thru all the angst and made it. Was somewhat invested in Morgan, even though she was a wimp. Guessed the villain pretty quick. Great need for suspension of disbelief.

The book is divided between a before and after the "suicide". Well written. Narrator was very good. Coulda been a contenda. Hey, there is always room for one more clique! On the fence. Just ok not great. (Semi)-falsely advertised.

Not great

I’m not sure how this book got so many good reviews. It was like a bad lifetime movie! It was just silly and the narrator was so annoying!

Great

I bought to have something to listen to on the way home. I was instantly caught up in the story and made the long drive home so much nicer. Hope author has another one soon.

horrible

Character's were vapid. Story line didn't make sense. It was painful to read. I wish I could give zero stars.

weak and helpless

The narrator made the women in the story sound weak and helpless. I'm not sure it was necessary.
I did want to find out what had happened. Great job to the author for the way it starts!!
