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.

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!

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.

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.

Engaging!

Interesting story very well told. I have listened to every story narrated by Imogene Church-my favorite. iThis is by far the best story I have heard in a long time. Highly recommend.

Narration hard at first, but great summer thriller

I have to admit I almost stopped listening because of Imogen Church's over-the-top American accents (I *love* Imogen Church but had only heard her do British accents). I stuck with it, and I'm glad I did.

After I got into it, I couldn't stop listening. I hate spoilers, so won't say much more, but ultimately I loved this story about women taking charge and the friendship between them.

Distracting narration

This narrator is normally very good. However, for this book, it was the wrong choice. The story took place in the U.S. One of the characters was British, so a British narrator for that one character would have been fine. However, the narrator performed several characters, they all seemed to have British accents to me. It was very confusing and I struggled to keep the story line straight and figure out who was speaking. It probably would have been a bit better if there were multiple narrators or if I’d read the book. I read other reviews were people loved the narration so I thought I’d give it a shot. It was a miss for me. I thought Such a Good Wife by this author was a way better listen.

Great story line

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