Publisher's Summary

When a dream trip becomes your worst nightmare...

You’ve been excited about this getaway for months–at last, a chance to reconnect with your husband at a secluded island resort. But when he unexpectedly calls you from the beach, you hear the urgency in his voice. Something is very wrong.

The beautiful waitress from the restaurant last night has been found lying dead in the sand. And the police want to question your husband about it.

Sure, you saw him glance at her over dinner a few times, but you know he didn’t have anything to do with the poor girl’s death. So why is he asking you to lie to the police that he was with you all night? And where did he go in those missing hours?

When he returns to your beautiful sea-view suite, things get heated and he accuses you of being jealous, just like he always does. Yes, the waitress was overly flirtatious with your husband, but you didn’t actually wish her any harm. Not really.

Can you trust the man you married...or are you the one who can’t be trusted?

Perfect for fans of Gone Girl, The Hunting Party, and The Girl on the Train.

Excellent!

Sue Watson has a new fan!

This was excellent! I really enjoyed the details, character development, feelings and plot.

I also appreciated that the all too common issue of spouses making insults and backhanded compliments, was displayed. It made the lead character someone you could really empathize with. I felt really bad for her at times and could relate.

The mystery was also very exciting!

Another great book by Sue Watson. I was not prepared for the twist at the end.

Very, Very Good

Although certain aspects of this novel are little improbable, if you practice suspension of disbelief and allow yourself to be a carried away, you’ll be in for quite a suspenseful and fun read.
The narration is exceptional, the story is unique, and I truly enjoyed this book from start to finish.
It also surprised me, which is a rare treat.
I liked the characters, was mesmerized by the location and found the interplay between the three couples to be very entertaining.
A definite yes.
Worth a credit and worth your time…

stick with it

You need a good little bit to start this book where you don't have to start and stop. If you do listen a little, then stop, then listen some more, you will not get the characters straight. After you do get the couples figured out it is smooth sailing from there. Great little mystery, kept me entertained, and kept me guessing at who the "bad" guy was.

Hard to understand the commentator.

I would have preferred a commentator who spoke English without an accent. Her voice was not a pleasant tone to listen to but I loved the story. It would be better to have a choice of accents of the reader.

Darn- Now I Have To Wait For The Next Sue Watson

The author does a very good job at setting an atmosphere, creating interesting characters. I thought I knew what had happened but was wrong.

Enjoyable

I always enjoy a book with a twist and a vacation setting. Sometimes I can’t figure out who did what to whom and this was one of those.

Wow

This story had some really eye opening experiences. It was so amazing how the characters shared their lives with each other during a difficult time while on vacation. There were some really sad moments too. I almost cried listening to this story unfold. But for some people the circumstances of this story is their real life reality that they’ve lived through and survived.

Kept me listening *trigger warning*

Binge listened to this and enjoyed the twists and turns, I do wish the blurb would give a trigger warning - there are details descriptions of rape and sexual assault of a child. Thank

One of her best!

Throughly enjoyed this book, one of her best, I binged it over two days. No part of it dragged for me, which I find is often the case these days, it was an easy listen, which I think is a real mark of a talented author. I enjoyed the setting, the premise and the interaction between the women and the dynamics of the three couples involved. Outstanding narration from the incredibly talented Tamsin Kennard as always. Loved it ❤️

Could have been good but wasn't

Narration was so utterly boring but matched my feelingsI. Seemed like a good idea and the start was promising but that really did not last for long. Honestly, I tried to keep going but found myself skipping chapters yet still able to follow the story. Just not my cuppa tea - although the reviews I take note of were encouraging so someone out there must have enjoyed it! The choice is yours.

Not for me - sorry

Too unbelievable,too depressing, too exaggerated. Other people seem to have enjoyed it though. Certainly wouldn’t attempt any more from this author.

Awful

Weak female characters. A plot that was so improbable it was laughable in places. Sentences felt padded out just to get a decent word count. I wasted a credit on this, I advise you don't. Really very poor.

Brilliant storyline gripping stuff

This was a great story and kept you guessing until the end. Well narrated and the descriptions of the characters lead you down the wrong path. Worth a listen

Great book with a few annoying niggles.

Largely I really enjoyed this book. The plot was great. In the last few chapters it’s twist after twist and I wasn’t expecting the final twist at the end. The narrator was brilliant too. There were a few really irritating nibbles for me though that could have easily spoilt it. Firstly all of the male characters are pretty awful. It was really unbalanced and unhelpful. I realise that that helps the plot but surely there could have been at least one male character that was a genuinely nice man. Secondly. I think the narrator has been living in a cupboard. Two of the 3 female leads are 38 and have left it far too late to have children. What?? For goodness sake. Half the kids I know have mothers that age and older. I was 40 when I had my youngest and my Mum had me when she was 40 in the 1960’s. What on earth is she talking about. Lastly. I live in Devon. Not far from where the police station in the story and close to where the action is set. The sweltering unbearable heat in this story baffles me too. It’s been 30 degrees here today and yet with no air conditioning we all manage fine. This part of Devon is known for having a microclimate that makes it feel cooler than the rest of the South West. It really felt as if it should have been set in another country. They’re just niggles but all 2 of these really jarred and with such a great story that was a shame. I’d definitely recommend it though despite that.

Not really a thriller

This book was more about some soppy wife’s who have issues with their arrogant egotistical husbands. Easy to listen too but definitely not a -sitting-at-the-edge-of-your-seat thriller. Very very average.

Twists to the End

This was an engaging thriller from the very first page. Twists and turns so you never knew what really happened until the end.

The narrator was very pleasant to listen to.
