Publisher's Summary

In the vein of the Reese's Book Club x Hello Sunshine Book Club pick The Other Woman, Sandie Jones’s heart-pounding new novel The Blame Game will keep listeners on the edge of their seats.

Games can be dangerous. But blame can be deadly.

As a psychologist specializing in domestic abuse, Naomi has found it hard to avoid becoming overly invested in her clients’ lives. But after helping Jacob make the decision to leave his wife, Naomi worries that she’s taken things too far. Then Jacob goes missing, and her files on him vanish. . . .

But as the police start asking questions about Jacob, Naomi’s own dark past emerges. And as the truth comes to light, it seems that it’s not just her clients who are in danger.

Hindsight is 20/20

It’s not the worst book, but it’s really a convoluted story/plot. While it had me guessing, and kept me listening until the end, I could not wait to just get this over. The central character seemed terribly unrealistic and apparently had no code of ethics to adhere to with her professional role, which is a primary part of the story. I wanted to bang my head against a wall about most decisions the main character made. Frustrating story. Ending was abrupt and us readers deserved a little more wrap up.

Terrible

I had high expectations for this book based on the reviews. It was just awful. The character development was meh (main character gets WAY too involved with her clients...she should lose her license) and the story was LAME. Save your money.

Definitely worth a listen!

I enjoyed this book throughly. I was pulled in and didn’t want to stop listening right from the start.

I took off one start only because it’s another book where a seemingly smart and self aware character makes ridiculous decisions with no self awareness. They contradict each other.

The narration and performance was phenomenal. I could listen to Karissa Vacker read instructions to on how to assemble a desk.

Hard to get into

It’s the narrator who makes or breaks the audiobook, and this narrator was terrible. The overdramatized whispering sounded like she was reading the whole time, the mens voices were horrible. Story……meh. It kept my interest because of the twists, but the annoying voices lost it for me. I love Sandie Jones’ books- this was not her best work. Perhaps it could have been better with a better narrator.

Fantastic and frightfully engaging

This book is so filled with second guessing and the ending is one that will leave you shocked and beyond! Love this author and her books are always page turning or driving around one more block to get more of her brilliant creations. Absolutely sensational!!!

Not worth the credit

This is not Sandie Jones best work. Her last couple books have been lackluster. This was very drawn out with no twists.

So confused

This dumb book can’t possibly be written by the same author that wrote the really good book: The Other Woman. No way. It’s so bad
