あらすじ・解説

You can never truly know what goes on behind closed doors....

My darling son, Sam, is marrying his childhood sweetheart, and I couldn’t be prouder of the man he’s grown into. Walking out on his abusive father all those years ago was the best thing I ever did. And today he stands, tall and handsome, saying "I do" to my dream daughter-in-law. If I hadn’t pushed them together all those years ago, he might never have found a girl as perfect as Lauren. It’s true what they say, mother always knows best. 

But weeks later, Lauren is dead and police cars fill the driveway of their idyllic countryside home. As they question Sam, I sense he’s hiding something. Why won’t he look me in the eye? And who does he rush off to meet as soon as the police are gone? 

Desperate, I do what every good mother would do: I let myself into Sam and Lauren’s bedroom. What I see, I will never be able to forget. My son’s beautiful new wife was hiding a dangerous secret. Can I clear my son’s name? And could my life be in danger now too? 

A completely gripping, utterly twisted thriller that will leave your jaw on the floor. Perfect for fans of Gone Girl, The Wife Between Us, and The Woman in the Window.

IT WAS NOT OBVIOUS!!

I almost didn’t purchase this book because of a review that stated the plot was obvious. After reading several more reviews I took a chance. I didn’t figure it out until chapter 40 and then found out I was WRONG before the book ended. Lol. It was a great book. Lol I loved this one.

Finally, a good book!

I’ve been through or attempted to go through so many duds lately, even though this isn’t the most original, it’s my kind of read. It’s an easy read with not too many characters and the story is linear. Which, makes it easy to follow and the dynamic between the families is interesting.
Lauren and Sam meet in nursery school their families staying close being good friends through the years. The two get married then 3 months after a perfect wedding Lauren is dead.
The rest of the book is a whodunit with the police arresting Sam right off the bat.
It grabbed me from the first chapter. I recommended it.

Twist & Turns galore

LOVED LOVED LOVED!!!
The story was exceptional!! Every time I thought I knew how it would end, I was wrong, it kept me guessing until the very last chapter. The performance was great!

P.S. I have listened to dozens of Mystery & Thrillers and have loved a lot of them but this book was the first one to compel me to write a review

Sometimes you can't trust reviews

Got this book because the reviews said it was a page turner with twists and turns. It was a cliche story and the bad guy was staring the main character right in the face waving his arms around before she figured it out. The conversations were incredibly unrealistic and dramatic. Skip this one.

Total Soap Opera

If you love soap operas, you live this book. However, if you prefer true suspense, believable plot lines and realistic story lines, this is not the book for you. And to top it off, there are numerous grammatical errors in the dialogue that are like. nails on a chalkboard

good but easy to figure out

Definitely enjoyed the book, well written, great characters, easy flow. It was very easy to figure out who the bad guy was, probably the only downfall.

If you like main character being a single Extremely naïve woman, extremely naïve

Definitely not my cup of tea As I do not appreciate main characters being blind to reality, like a child not seeing what’s in front of her, so naïve is the main character shocked by the unveiled truth throughout the entire book till the end when she finally realizes her weakness in taking people at face value. The narrator‘s nervousness depicting this character was enough to put me off not wanting to Continue listening.The twists were interesting but drowned out by this Ignorant, irritating single woman With no back bone,totally absorbed in her son, her life.

Mis-sold

Claims to be a Totally Gripping Psychological Thriller. In fact is a just a "who-done-it" mystery. There's no perceived threat at all. (That's what would make it a thriller.)
So, there's a killing, an investigation, and we eventually get to hear who the murderer was, with a few mis-directions on the way. Lots of padding.
Usual formula for a domestic drama, woman as the lead character, slightly complicated family situation. In this case the new daughter-in-law apparently gets pushed down the stairs 3 months after getting married.

Not bad but annoying

Although I enjoyed the book and found it an easy read I was irritated by the lack of knowledge of police procedure. You can’t just get people arrested and charged on a whim with hardly any evidence. You certainly can’t get them out of prison after they have been charged just because someone else’s DNA is found at a crime scene. Felt like the author took us for idiots if she expected us to believe this. Georgie would have though what a dumb woman !!!!

Yeah, was an OK story

I thought the story was ok, sometimes books have too many twists & turns though.
I guessed who did it which was a surprise, I don't usually. Narrated quite well I must say.

Good story but not really "gripping"

This was quite a good story - but I had to keep skipping chapters a lot because of what i call "froth" - e.g. "the curtains were a light shade of cream whilst the settee was a sky blue - the custions were a mixture of creams, blues and greys - but it all seemed to match. And I admired her taste and as I drank my latte with soya milk and no sugar" etc etc etc - you get my drift. It drove me mad. Got to end a lot quicker and was a reasonable twist - but would not say it was "gripping" at all.

Hard work

The only reason I ploughed on listening to this was because I couldn't return it.
I found the narrator's voice whiney which spoilt it quite a bit.
The story line was like a crap itv drama. I didn't like any of the characters, it was far fetched and predictable.

Families are not what they seem

I thought the main character was a bit sickly nice and got on my nerves a bit. The story could have got to the end a bit quicker but overall I did enjoy it. The ending was not quite as I expected so a good surprise. Will try more from this author.
