Publisher's Summary

Andrea Brafford’s life is nearly perfect. A passionate marine biologist happily married to Craig, the man she loves, she has recently moved into a home commensurate with their success to enjoy a life many others only dream about in one of Houston’s most desirable suburbs. But only a few months later, a trial that dramatically polarizes their town names Craig Brafford as a defendant in the murder of his young wife, shattering the serenity of the peaceful community.

Andi’s name is on everyone’s lips, her relationships exposed and torn to shreds in a highly publicized case that has everyone’s eyes glued to the internet. Andrea’s life remains a mystery that investigators and public opinion equally fail to solve. Was she the happy, devoted wife she'd made everyone believe she was? 

Only she could answer that question. 

The best-selling author of Dawn Girl is back with a suspenseful, gripping psychological thriller. Fans of Celeste Ng, Alex Michaelides, and Liane Moriarty will enjoy The Girl You Killed, an addictive psychological thriller that will keep listeners enthralled until the last minute.

Narrator is unbearable.

I've never rated nor written a review on Audible audiobook. This particular book was painful to listen to as the narrator's voice is shaky and nervous; full of poor inflection and cadence. I hoped I could ignore the narrator's distracting performance and find a good story, however I could not get past chapter 5. Maybe I will read the paper copy someday to discover what happened.... If I could filter my Audible searches and exclude this narrator I certainly would. I have since listened to a number of samples of other Audible books she has narrated and they are all the same.

One of Leslie Wolfe's best thrillers!

Not so long ago I read The Girl You Killed and when I got a chance to listen to the audiobook version, I jumped at it. The following is my review for the kindle version, but I stand by every word for the Audiobook as well – however the only real differences in this case I was already familiar with the story but there were still things that surprised me and Gwendolyn Druyor’s narration brought Andrea and this story to life.

How often do you finish a book by an author that you’ve read all their books and sit saying I never saw this coming? The Girl You Killed is just such a book, once this book got its hooks into me, I couldn’t put it down. And even though there were some things I felt I had figured out; I couldn’t put the book down wanting to confirm I was not only right but seeing how this story was going to end. Leslie Wolfe has created a story with some characters who are so easy to like and identify with, along with a couple who are grade A scumbags and amazingly easy to hate. The way this story unfolds is a bit unorthodox, but it is the most effective way to tell this story as it provides backstory along with the current events of the storyline.

Good story with so-so characters

I received a copy of this audiobook from Audiobooks Unleashed. At first I did not like the narrator and wasn't sure I could finish it but then I got caught up in Andi's story. The book is told by the different characters with excerpts from a trial in between that aided in character development. I wasn't sure whose trial it was and for what crime until later in the book. Andi is a good character but not very strong and too trusting.. She has little self-confidence. Craig is a jerk and the narrator's rendition of his voice just makes him more unlikable. I could never see what Andi saw in him to begin with except his good looks. Since some of the characters knew what was going on, I felt sorry for Andi that her situation went on as long as it did. I had some suspicions about what was happening but I didn't see the whole picture until the author put it all together. All in all it was an enjoyable psychological thriller combined with a crime story that I enjoyed.

"A talent for money."

Firstly, I must say that I very much enjoyed this book despite being both ridiculous and predictable. A psychological thriller, after the introduction of Craig, recently imprisoned and awaiting trial for the murder of his beautiful and intelligent wife, , Andie, a marine biologist, a crime which he vigorously denies, the narrative returns to several months earlier, tracing the events which led to Craig's arresst, interesting the chapters with brief fragments from his trial. The final third of the book continues the story from 'present day'. This writing device works well, allowing the personalities and backgrounds of the main protagonists to be developed whilst the story line carries the reader forwards with an anticipation of what is already partially known.

However, despite carefully concealed twists, their ripples do make the overall storyline predictable and one of the lead protagonists has to take a prize for being one of the dumbest fictional heroines ever: how can a bright college graduate be so irritatingly idiotic even if she is in love?Yet I did enjoy the book, in no small part because of the excellent narration by Gwendolyn Druyer. Her voice is melifluous, no sharp edges too catch the unsuspecting ear. She reads with clarity good pacing and with an expressive modulation. Even her voicings of individual protagonists is appropriate and gently distinctive. Her delivery, however, was too slow for my personal enjoyment but increasingly g the playback speed to 1.3 resolved this without distortion. Her performance most definitely added to the enjoyment of the story.

I was fortunate in receiving a freely gifted complimentary copy of The Girl You Killed, at my application to Audiobooks Unleasd. My thanks to the rights holder for making it avaiable.This is a nicely spun web of psychological fun, easy to read and sure to appeal to readers of mystery thrillers.

Great Plot & Narration

Craig a realtor, playing on clients emotions brought success
Andi a marine research scientist, knew a few unusual tricks
Craig in jail, even his lawyer doesn’t stand by him
Craig feels a loss of dignity, angry and fear of being in jail
A letter, a pendant, a confession, or threat to what had been done
Gripping story, who was guilty and was it planned
Another winner, a good riveting plot. Well done to enjoy.
Given audio for my voluntary review and my honest opinion

NOT A THRILLER

This was another of those May new releases that was supposed to be so good. It was labeled a physicogical thriller. It was an interesting story but I wouldn’t label it physiological thriller. It was an improbable set of circumstances.

RECOMMENDATION: MAYBE

PREDICTABLE

This book did nothing for me but make me angry. I skipped through chapters because it was painfully slow. The main character was a College graduate with a degree but was as emotionally developed as a 12 year old girl. The further you got into the book the worse it was. Don’t waste your money or a credit.

Disappointed

The main character annoyed me the whole time, the story line was boring. I didn’t like the performance. I finished it hoping it’d get better but it didn’t.

Exciting Psychological Thriller

Leslie Wolfe can always be relied on to give the reader an exciting psychological thriller to read/listen to if you like audio, which I don't mind admitting is now my personal favourite way to enjoy a good book. This one far exceeded my expectations because I think this one is her best book yet. The plot never failed to hold my attention and the twists and turns kept coming, some I saw others I didn't.

The characters are always well developed some likeable and some not! I could say so much about this book but then your enjoyment of it would be spoilt so suffice to say I didn't want to stop listening and when it ended my one thought was - I hope that there's a follow-up.

As always for Leslie's books, we get to enjoy narration by Gwendolyn Druyer who can always be relied on to read to give a performance of such clarity and pacing, each individual protagonist's voice is always distinctive and fit the characters perfectly. Her performance always adds to my enjoyment of any story.

I was given this audiobook as a gift and am voluntarily writing my review.

Killer thriller

I loved reading this book on the kindle and just had to get it as an audio book. There is something about a talented narrator reading you an excellent story that despite knowing what is happening it still manages to draw you in to the story. This is one of those books. The story is mainly told by the two main characters, with most chapters ending with testimony from one of the witnesses about the events that just happened. This works well as the story does start fairly slowly (setting up the scene) and it keeps you hooked wondering who he is accused of murdering, it also helps build up the tension. I liked the characters and it is only as the story starts to unfold that you start to have doubts over what is to come and who is guilty. I loved the courtroom drama and then to end it with even more questions answered, was just another twist in a long line of twists (so much goes on and it's hard to explain without giving anything away). Another gripping thriller by a very talented author that should be a must read or listen on everybody's list. A great standalone book that takes the listener on a roller coaster of a ride.
Andrea has the perfect life, she is married to the man she loves and has an expensive new home, the only thing left is to land her dream job. So why isn't her father happy for her? And more importantly why is her husband on trail for her murder? Was there actually a murder? With no body but plenty of evidence the prosecutor has no trouble with taking him to court. But is that the right move? Everybody knows he is guilty of something but murder?
The narrator was amazing and one of the most talented out there. How she does what she does I have no idea but I hope she keeps it up and especially teaming up with this author.
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Absolutely loved it!

Wow talk about a thriller that will keep your attention, this is it! I have listened to other books by Ms. Wolfe and they were great! I don't know if it is because I just finished this one but I think it was the best! I got so deep into this story that I had to keep listening which is difficult to do unless you are sitting still concentrating and I was!! lol I didn't want to move and miss a thing. The fairy tale love story of Andy and Craig was beautiful! How they met and started their relationship was so romantic! I can't say anything else because I want you to enjoy this book as much as I did. The characters were really great and such a support system. I especially liked Andy's dad, such a good guy and also his funny quirks! I totally recommend this book if you like to be kept guessing, about not just one thing that happens but many! Awesome.
I received a free code for this book from Audiobooks Unleashed to listen to on Audible. This review is my own honest opinion.
