Publisher's Summary

You want to know what the worst thing is? It's not the embarrassment, or the looks on people's faces when I tell them what happened. It isn't the pain of him not being there - loneliness is manageable.
The worst thing is not knowing why.

When Justin walks out on Alice on their honeymoon, with no explanation apart from a cryptic note, Alice is left alone and bewildered, her life in pieces.
Then she meets Evelyn, a visitor to the gallery where she works. It's a seemingly chance encounter, but Alice gradually learns that Evelyn has motives, and a heartbreaking story, of her own. And that story has haunting parallels with Alice's life.
As Alice delves into the mystery of why Justin left her, the questions are obvious. But the answers may lie in the most unlikely of places...

I kept thinking 'what the heck???'

For better or worse, After You Left will keep you on your toes. Is it a mystery? Well, yeah- but not the one you think it is. Is it literary? Maybe; some aspects of the book are quite fine while others are straight out of the chicklit handbook. Is it engaging? Yes- except when it isn't. And last, 'What did she say?' Narrator Knoweldon does an excellent job but in that whispery-childwoman voice that keeps me rewinding.

Yep, I am ambivalent about After You Left. The story line seemed forced at times but the storytelling was excellent. I'll certainly try more Carol Mason novels because despite everything I've said, After You Left is better than 2/3 of the books I listen to.

Can't get past second chapter. Perhaps I will try later

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

Can't get past the second chapter. Maybe I will try again later, when in a more reflective mood

What could Carol Mason have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?


How could the performance have been better?

Less monotone

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?


Any additional comments?

Not a mystery or thriller

If you like cupcakes and rainbows this story is for you. This is a mushy romance novel, not a mystery or thriller as advertised. A great disappointment. Boring and predictable.
