Publisher's Summary

One dinner party will destroy everything.

The night that throws a wrecking ball into Abby’s life starts out perfectly at first. There’s still a hint of summer sun in the purple-streaked sky. Abby and her best friend, Sienna, look on fondly as their two husbands laugh under the garden gazebo. None of them know it’s the last time they will be together again.

What starts out as just a little fun has devastating consequences for the couples. Alone with Sienna’s husband, Greg, Abby finds him unexpectedly charming. Caught up in the moment, she reveals a secret she swore never to tell. And something happens that night that neither she nor Greg can take back.

Abby is desperate to tell her husband and Sienna the truth but can’t risk Greg sharing what she told him. She has no choice but to keep quiet. Then Greg suddenly disappears.

Is her best friend’s husband simply running from his secrets? Or has someone decided they can’t risk that he may share theirs?

From number one best-selling author Kathryn Croft comes a gripping and twisty psychological thriller perfect for fans of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train.

Not the best

Can break this down pretty quickly. Two crazy women who run around accusing everyone else, with next to no proof.

None of the main characters are good people or very likeable. A decent editor could of condensed this down to a more appropriate length as well.

could have been half the length

Decent story,engaging premise. Lots of repetition, lots of stupidness, The middle dragged and dragged. Could have been much better if it was just shortened.

Breathy

This narrator was so breathy and gasping for air… I had to turn it off within 20 minutes of listening. I kept thinking it would get better or that was a character she was portraying.. wrong..

BORING…

Gave up at chapter 17. Slow as molasses. Probably a good story if you can get through the writing.

okish

the was OK, but a little slow. it was it a listen that didnt kept me enthralled, like other Kathryn croft books I have listened to have. the worst part was the narration , the constant sharp intake of breath before she spoke was very off-putting. nit a great experience.

couldn't listen

I think the idea behind this may be good, only got to chapter 8 before I had to quit, the sharp constant breath intakes of the narrator is very annoying and distracting.

All plot no character

husband and wife interior thrillers are very commercial atm it seems everyone is having a go. This one is all plot and no attention to character or place. There is no attempt to describe even the basic features of the 4 main characters. They all have same personality with no nuance or differentiation. No idea what any of them look like as it is not described. Same with location its passed over briefly ( somewhere near hangar lane) its all very dull and a slow plot relying on constant reiteration of Abi is not to be trusted? Someone has been unfaithful ? Thats it. Thats the total mystery with the only intrigue being the witholding of what turns out to be very dull information. Very disapointing.

Plot holes you could drive a truck through

I listened to the bitter end while painting a fence but not sure why. The story was forced, was far too long and the twists and turns meandering at best, but really just a big yawn. And the murderer's cop out at the end? Just ludicrous. And what of their accomplice? The police action - more like inaction - was unbelievably inept. Glad I didn't pay for it or I would have asked for a refund. The only thing going for it was an interesting plot point which unfortunately was really badly handled from the moment it was introduced.

I couldn’t continue listening to this, the narrator’s constant loud intake of breath at the beginning of every sentence drove me potty.

Narrator

I got to chapter 5 before I couldn't take it anymore. The narrator's deep inhale. Once I noticed it, it's all I could notice. I am going finish reading this book on my kindle.

Too long and confusing

Spoilers ahead
From the start I was confused because the summary says that is Abby who reveals a secret to Greg. But really it’s the other way around.
The story drags for way too long without much happening, a lot of questions and I didn’t find the answers satisfactory. So many things came out of nowhere, so much effort to make everyone a suspect and it was all for that ending? I didn’t like who ended up being the murderer, seemed unlikely and just a far fetched excuse to “surprise” the reader. The last chapter was also confusing. Why would she threaten him if she just took a bunch of pills? Makes no sense. It would have been more satisfying if she never took the pills and threatened him and he killed her to silence her and made it look like a suicide. Overall disappointing

Not who you think!

Unexpected twists all the way through. Worth a listen. Female characters are true to form blame the other female but no….

Not sure how I finished this

This story started off with some promise, but really dragged on. I listened until the end incase their was an interesting twist, but the ending was dissatisfying too. I also found the narrator difficult to listen to.

Slow burning

Inner monologue was too long and predictable, I wanted the story to move along faster. I felt that whilst the story line was good and had some interesting twists, the character's thoughts and dialogs were too obvious.
