Publisher's Summary

It was the trip of a lifetime…until someone ended up dead. 

When four couples receive invitations to try out a luxury island resort, they are excited for a week of relaxation and reconnecting.

For some, it’s the honeymoon they never had the chance to take.For others, it’s a last-ditch attempt to save their crumbling marriage. 

But when one of the group members ends up dead on the night of a terrible storm, what was once a paradise soon becomes a prison. 

Trapped on the island with no cell phone service and no means of escape, the couples fear the worst. What exactly happened to their friend? And could they be next? 

Determined to learn the truth, the couples search for answers, but only discover more secrets. Friendships, loyalties, and marriages are put to the ultimate test as they grapple to decide who to trust and who could be a threat.

Will they make it off the island? Or will the perfect getaway turn into their last?

The Perfect Getaway by Kiersten Modglin (Audiobook)
Podium Audio
Audible Release: June 7, 2022
Listening Length: 7 hours 32 minutes
Narrators: Gary Tiedmann and Janina Edwards
Genre: Thriller
KKECReads Rating: 5/5
I received a copy of this audiobook for free, and I leave my review voluntarily.

Kiersten Modglin is an Amazon Top 30 bestselling author of psychological thrillers, a member of International Thriller Writers and the Alliance of Independent Authors, a KDP Select All-Star, and a ThrillerFix Best Psychological Thriller Award Recipient. Kiersten grew up in rural Western Kentucky with dreams of someday publishing a book or two. With more than twenty-five books published, Kiersten now lives in Nashville, Tennessee, with her husband, daughter, and two Boston Terriers: Cedric and Georgie. She is best known for her unpredictable psychological suspense.

“It really does look just like the postcard.”

A group of friends gets the chance to experience an all-inclusive private island resort, all for free for a review at the end of their stay. Sounds too good to be true, but nothing terrible happens in paradise.

I read this book when it was first published, and I enjoyed it. Listening was a completely different experience.

My dislike for certain characters is even stronger this time around, and I have to proses KMod for her ability to create and write such beautiful characters, even if we won’t like them.

My dislike of Laura and Nick is even more extreme after listening to the book. But my appreciation for Natasha and Jaren is deeper.

The performances by narrators Gary Tiedmann and Janina Edwards were incredible. They both brought the characters to life, giving each a personality and presence that made them unique.

I enjoyed the performance and presentation of this novel. I hate most of the characters, but the vocal talent was spot on!

Thank you to Kiersten Modglin for providing me with this audiobook. I loved experiencing this story again. It was different than reading it, and because it’s been a while, I had forgotten so much of this plot.

Even more suspenseful and sinister!

I read this twisty thriller months ago and it's one of my favorite KMOD books. Listening to this audiobook added an extra layer of sinister. There was an added amount of suspense I hadn't read originally. I knew what was going to happen and I was still on the edge of my seat, eagerly listening to each chapter. The narrator's did an excellent job with this one!

So good!

I couldn’t stop listening. Every time I thought I had it figured out, I was wrong.

Another Drama Marketed As A Thriller

The Perfect Getaway by Kiersten Modglin
7h 32m narrated by Gary Tiedemann and Janina Edwards, 312 pages

Genre: Mystery, Thriller > Mystery Thriller, Psychological Thriller; Suspense, Contemporary

Featuring: Couples Trip, Caribbean, Multiple POVs, Influencer, Secrets

Rating as a movie: R for adult content

My rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️😕

My thoughts: 📱18% 1:23:54 Ch. 10 - I don't know if it's the narrator but Natasha is hilarious. So far I'm loving it. Many of the characters sound similar so it's hard to keep up with who's who.
📱38% 2:54:12 Ch.18 - It's hard to learn all of the characters since the narrators use the same voices for them during their POVs. I know they are capable of using other voices because they sometimes use them when they are saying the other characters' lines, but the main voices are all the same. Then the narrator (book) says, "it's the last night they'll all be alive" at dinner, but here we are the next night, after dinner, after bedtime, and everyone is still alive. 😏🤨😒🙄😕 I don't even know how to feel about it.
📱47% 3:25:48 somewhere in Ch. 20 - I suspected early on who was going to die and I was right. Still waiting for the chill factor.

I'm getting really tired of these Suspense Dramas being labeled as Thrillers, especially as Psychological Thrillers. At this point, it's just a marketing ploy. This one was more drama than suspense. It started okay but went downhill by the halfway point.

Recommend to others?: Maybe, if you like drama, sure; if you're looking for a thriller, skip.

Too confusing

It was too hard to follow with the speakers voice always the same and so many different characters. Had to rewind many times.
