A Bookish Most-Anticipated Novel

A Good Morning America "Binge This!" Pick

Big Little Lies meets Presumed Innocent in this “irresistible domestic drama” (Washington Post) from the New York Times best-selling author of Reconstructing Amelia, in which a woman’s brutal murder reveals the perilous compromises some couples make - and the secrets they keep - in order to stay together.

Lizzie Kitsakis is working late when she gets the call. Grueling hours are standard at elite law firms like Young & Crane, but they’d be easier to swallow if Lizzie was there voluntarily. Until recently, she’d been a happily underpaid federal prosecutor. That job and her brilliant, devoted husband, Sam - she had everything she’d ever wanted. And then, suddenly, it all fell apart.

No. That’s a lie. It wasn’t sudden, was it? Long ago the cracks in Lizzie’s marriage had started to show. She was just good at averting her eyes.

The last thing Lizzie needs right now is a call from an inmate at Rikers asking for help - even if Zach Grayson is an old friend. But Zach is desperate: His wife, Amanda, has been found dead at the bottom of the stairs in their Brooklyn brownstone. And Zach’s the primary suspect.

As Lizzie is drawn into the dark heart of idyllic Park Slope, she learns that Zach and Amanda weren’t what they seemed - and that their friends, a close-knit group of fellow parents at the exclusive Brooklyn Country Day school, might be protecting troubling secrets of their own. In the end, she’s left wondering not only whether her own marriage can be saved, but what it means to have a good marriage in the first place.

Pleasantly surprised!

I’m very hard to please in terms of books. I find basing the books I read on other users ratings very difficult because books with great ratings, I’ll find boring often times.
However, this book I throughly enjoyed, even if toward the end it got a bit implausible. Overall, I would recommend it because I really enjoyed the characters and the twists the author chose in the story.

Wow!! Hooked from the git-go!

I rarely leave reviews but this book was everything you want in a mystery/thriller. Narration is great!! Soooo many stories in one book! I couldn’t figure it out either. Twists and turns galore. A+

Gamer Changer!!

i absolutely loved this audiobook, Narrated really well, you get the expressions of character well flushed out. This story just when you think just close to that thought u figured it out it completely takes you to another twist. i highly recommend this. Good exciting plot and keeps you engaged!

Good book

This book kept my interest and had some twists and turns I did not expect. It is one of the better books I have listened to in awhile. Worth the credit!

Great twist story

I did really enjoy this book. I like the characters and the general premise of the book. I can honestly say I never knew who the bad guy was until the end. The only issue I had, and it's not a huge one, was the going back in forth in time. It's not always real clear which time period you are in if you happen to miss the very first sentence of some chapters.

Horrible.

Karisa Vacker was a good narrator but the other narrator’s voice annoyed me. The story was horrible. I only finished it to have background noise while working around the house.

Holds Up

The author has done a good job of keeping the truth to the very end! The reader spends a lot of time trying to figure things out. When I started the book, I wasn't sure I would finish it, but like all good mysteries, early concepts of what's happening are turned upside down. This hooks the reader but good. A Crime story where there were a lot of questions and surmises which were not cleared up, is frustrating for some, but the author stayed true to her plan.

There should have been more.

This book should have been so much better. The story was good, but complicated and hard to follow. Almost every character’s storyline felt incomplete.

Too much swearing, etc...

This was filled with swearing, the F word being a favorite of this author. This obsession for the F word, and swearing in general, caused her to insert it even when there was ordinary conversation, out of place because there was no especially heightened emotional state. And she had EVERY character swearing about everything. It distracted and took a lot away from the story and the characters, cheapening the story and the characters.
This story was ALL over the place. Everyone had similar background stories, I think?, and there were too many characters and over descriptive self-righteous shrill speeches. And a lot of whining going on.
The narrator for Lizzy over-pronounced the endings of words--emphasizing Ds Ts Ns Ms way too much, i.e. "bad" sounded like "baa-dah"

Good ending

It was a little hard to get into at first, but it eventually grabbed my interest. I would recommend.
