Retired homicide detective Linda Sikorsky and her wife Kirsten McClellan head to Maine from their home in the New Jersey woods for a weekend of rest, relaxation and rewrites as Kirsten finishes drafting her first novel. Bad weather alters their plans, forcing them to stop for the night at the Cliff's Edge, a roadside motel known for secrecy and indiscretion. Something murderous goes bump in the night, sending the women on a search for justice when a young reporter's body is found violated and dumped on a back road. A road Linda must now go down, no matter where it takes her, or what it reveals.

The thing I loved most about 'Last Room at the Cliff's Edge' was that this book was filled with female characters who range from flighty and silly to sinister and badass. So many stories are sorely lacking in female characters that have depth and actual human characteristics. As far as diversity in gender goes, this book is fantastic.
The story itself was also a great listen. From interpersonal strife between wives to a full fledge murder mystery, this tale has a little bit of everything! This is a tight and interesting murder mystery that I would definitely recommend to anyone who enjoys a good thriller! Mark McNease spins this tale with expertise and Daniela Acitelli delivers a fabulous performance.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Story & Writing, Fine -- Narrator, not so much
Maybe read the author, but not the narrator.
I couldn't get to the end.
Yes, stop listening, start reading, instead.
The narrator has a very odd rhythm to her reading. She tends to draw out a word here and there in a way that does not fit the narrative or the dialogue. She also gets the emphasis on the wrong word. It gets annoying. Example: (Not verbatim) I knoooowww he is the one, instead of the correct interpretation putting the emphasis on "he."
