Publisher's Summary

Victoria Barnett has it all: a great career as a nurse practitioner, a handsome and loving husband, a beautiful home in the suburbs, and a plan to fill it with children. Life is perfect - or so it seems. Then she’s in a terrible accident...and everything falls apart. Now Victoria is unable to walk. She can’t feed or dress herself. She can’t even speak. She is confined to the top floor of her house with 24-hour care. 

Sylvia Robinson is hired by Victoria’s husband to help care for her. But it turns out Victoria isn’t as impaired as Sylvia was led to believe. There’s a story Victoria desperately wants to tell...if only she could get the words out. Then Sylvia discovers Victoria’s diary hidden away in a drawer. And what’s inside is shocking.

Could not finish waste of credit

At least if I don’t like a paper book I can donate it or resell it. Neither with audible. Seemed juvenile. Young woman with the hots for a married man…wish audible would allow me to return it but they won’t. Longtime customer very disappointed. Don’t waste your credit.

I didn’t want to listen anymore but couldn’t stay away!!!

It’s funny that you can dislike a character so much that you just want to put the story aside so you don’t have to hear anymore of the horror…….but that’s also what keeps calling one back.
The only bit of dislike was “Victoria’s” voice. For some reason it was annoying to me but this in no way took away from the enjoyment of the story.

Loved the narrator, story was also very good listen. The twist at the end was clearly not expected.

Sooooooo good!

I cannot wait to read the rest of Freida McFadden's books! This was a fantastic listen. I thought I had it figured out, then I thought I was right, then I was wrong, then I was right, and then wrong again! What a great ending!

The narration even grew on me. At first I thought I didn't love her performance but I was wrong, she did a great job.

So many twists

This story will keep you on your toes. You'll think you have it figured out then it'll get take a twist and have you going back and forth until the very end.

excellent story!!

when I first saw the cover for this book I thought that it would be rubbish. I know I won't be judging anymore books by their cover! this story kept me entertained right from the beginning. it had plenty of twists and Turns and even when I thought I knew where the story was going it proved me wrong! I'd highly recommend this story if you enjoy domestic thrillers. the narration was very well performed.
