Publisher's Summary

What happens on the water, stays on the water.

Or so they thought. Allison and her handsome, charismatic husband, Doug, are on a Caribbean cruise to celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary. But the steady stream of idyllic photos and happy hashtags they post online is hiding a dangerous rift in their relationship. Allison has long suspected that Doug is having an affair. Despite his impassioned denials and smooth-talking alibis, she’s unconvinced of his innocence and determined to dig for the truth, no matter the cost.

And she’s not the only one delving into their secrets. The couple they’ve befriended on the cruise has been watching them. And they’ve come to a disturbing conclusion of their own. When Allison disappears the night before the ship docks back in Florida, they bring their terrifying suspicions to the police.

But the truth about Allison’s whereabouts proves even more shocking than anyone imagined.

Will you enjoy The Cabin Below? If you read any of my favorite psychological and domestic suspense thriller authors including K.L. Slater, Shalini Boland, Adam Croft, Kathryn Croft, Lisa Gardner, Louise Jensen, or Rachel Caine, the answer is a resounding yes!

Narrator was poor

The story had little depth but the narrator made it even more shallow! Disappointing mystery even with the twist at the end!

Good twists

I chose to listen to this book after receiving a free audio copy from the author. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

I didn’t care for these relationships. Doug and Allison have a troubled marriage and although they are supposed to be on the cruise to celebrate their anniversary and to move on, it doesn’t seem that either of them truly believes that the cruise will help. Their new friends are also celebrating their anniversary. They profess to have a good marriage but all he does is drink. And then there was the head of security and his girlfriend…there’s not one good relationship!

It took me a little while to get into this book, but I’m glad I stuck with it. The second half was suspenseful with some twists.

The narrator did a good job with timing and pace. I was able to differentiate between men and women but not the specific person, but it worked out fine.

This is the second book I’ve read by this author, and I look forward to reading more.

Really not that good

After reading the reviews I was expecting a great book. I was sorely disappointed! The plot itself is a decent idea. However I found the authors writing to be poor. There is a lot of boring dialogue and cliche language. The characters development is shallow and boring. The voices of the female characters were distinct but a couple of them were rather irritating to listen to. This was one of those books I should have exchanged!

Mediocre read

This book was slightly disappointing and the narration was quite cringeworthy at times. This made it difficult to listen to, especially the attempts at the different voices!
Towards the end it did get more interesting so that picked it up a bit.
Not the best listen...
