Publisher's Summary

The perfect neighborhood can be the perfect place to hide....

Who wouldn’t want to live in Brighton Hills? This exclusive community on the Oregon coast is the perfect mix of luxury and natural beauty. Stunning houses nestle beneath mighty Douglas firs, and lush backyards roll down to the lakefront. It’s the kind of place where neighbors look out for one another. Sometimes a little too closely....

Cora thinks her husband, Finn, is cheating—she just needs to catch him in the act. That’s where Paige comes in. Paige lost her son to a hit-and-run last year, and she’s drowning in the kind of grief that makes people do reckless things like spying on the locals, searching for proof that her son’s death was no accident…and agreeing to Cora’s plan to reveal what kind of man Finn really is. All the while, their reclusive new neighbor, Georgia, is acting more strangely every day. But what could such a lovely young mother possibly be hiding?

When you really start to look beyond the airy open floor plans and marble counters, Brighton Hills is filled with secrets. Some big, some little, some deadly. And one by one, they’re about to be revealed….

Minority opinion

My major problem with the book was the narrator. I found her performance exaggerated and occasionally histrionic. The voice of Cora was especially cringe-inducing. Moreover, the story took place in Oregon, so why have a British narrator? Maybe I would have enjoyed this more in the print version. Given my issues with the narration, I never stayed involved in the story for very long. I was real glad when it ended.

I should have headed the warnings!!

I have no idea if this book deserves 2 stars because I can't get past the narration to listen anymore. I didn't believe it could be true because Imagin Church is one of my favorite narrators ever, but this is so over the top I was actually cringing .
I am returning this title

Wish I read it instead of listened to it.

I enjoyed the story but the narration wasn't great. It made me dislike Cora from the beginning although as I got into the story I liked her despite the awful interpretation. Narrator made Paige sound like a surly macho male and totally missed representing her true character. She did the two unlikeable males well. I'm pretty sure I've listened to this narrator before and enjoyed her so this was a bit of a disappointment. But the story kept me interested.

Don’t listen - read instead

I love Imogen’s voice and accent in others she’s narrated, but this performance was cringy. Too exaggerated and Paige’s voice and any of the males I got confused with because they were similar and masculine I got lost at times. Cora’s voice was just horrid.

I would’ve returned the title if I could have and just read the book.

A Unique Plot

The story kept me interested, but I wish I had read it and not listened to it. The narrator captured the loudness, snarling anger or screeching of two of the female characters too effectively. Those voices were really hard to listen to.

The Best

I probably listen to three books a week and I can tell you that On a Quiet Street was the best book I’ve ever listened to! The narration was spot on of course because Imogen Church usually is but the story was unforgettable! I recommend you buy this book now!

Excellent!

I absolutely loved this book! I listen to 3-4 audiobooks a week while I work. I only write reviews on ones that really grip me, and this one did! I am still thinking about it even after reading two more since I finished it. It keeps you guessing and the twists and turns make it so you don’t want to stop listening! I love it when I find a book that is exciting and completely captures my attention. Well worth the credit spent!

Absolutely fabulous

as always there will be no spoilers in my review.
sometimes you buy a book just for the Narrator
this was one of those times
this book had pretty much everything you would want and a little more from a domestic noir thriller.
I can't talk about the book without saying this
As per usual Imogene Church hit this out of the park. honestly there were times I thought were there another narrators ? the difference between characters was incredible. there are probably only a few Narrators that can pull that off.
that being said.
this was a nice steady paced listen. easily discernable characters voices. all around great job Imogene. as always you didn't dissapoint.

this is an author to watch for.

A great listen

I have been listening to books narrated by Imogen Church for years. She’s one of my favorite narrators. It was really entertaining to listen to her do the different voices. The story was also entertaining and overall an easy listen. I really enjoyed this book and recommend it.

Tricky one.

Essentially I enjoyed this. The narration, not so much. It reminded me of an excitable child auditioning for the lead in the school play.

There were a few times where the plot was stretched very thinly. And I initially struggled with Paige's character. However, the last half, once we knew 'Georgia's' back story rattled along well.

Incredible!

On a Quiet Street listens like watching an incredible movie in your head!

It’s exceptionally written & the narration is nothing short of outstanding. A triumph.

Great story line

3 different women all in crisis. Not a new concept but great tale. Accents a little annoying
