    I found the narration very flat, too fast and quite detached from the material. I loved the narrator for big, little lies and the husbands secret howerev- different narrator. Ruined the book for me.

    Loved it 2 years ago the first time I read it, still loved it the second time. Narrator spoke to fast.

  • Kathleen P

    I will read anything by this author. I did love this book. I didn't give 5 stars only because I loved The Husband's Secret and Big Little Lies just a bit more. She is an amazing story teller.

    The narrator was really good. It took a while for the book to "pick up" but it was a pretty good read overall.

  • Allott B

    An engaging encounter with 'what if'. The narration is superb. The reader will be prompted to ask themselves many questions along the way and preconceived ideas will fall by the wayside.

    At first I thought I was going to be disappointed with the ending however she turned it around for sure. Loved this book and the perspective it provides! Narrator was great!
