Publisher's Summary

On the surface, Maureen’s life appears no different from any other stereotypical 54-year-old housewife's: a suburban home in a small Pennsylvania town, two loving kids, grandchildren, and a husband to dote on at the end of the day with a home-cooked meal and a crisp martini.
Fat bitch, dumb bunny, slut, tramp: these are just a few of the cruel words that echo in Maureen’s ears every day and define the harsh reality she actually lives in. For years, Maureen has harbored a dark secret known by only one other person: her husband, Tommy.
After Tommy dies, Maureen imagines that the years of physical and mental abuse are over. But just six months later, while looking for the Halloween decorations in the attic, Maureen finds a gift-wrapped GPS with her name on the box: an early birthday present from her late husband. When the voice from the machine starts giving her sinister directions, she learns that sometimes the dead are restless... and she's locked in a battle not just for her life, but for her soul.

Surprisingly Spooky

This was the first short story I have read by Jennifer Weiner. I have read a couple of her novels, and this work surprised me as its content turned mysterious and increasingly spooky after the first few chapters. I have enjoyed this author's other works I have, and this one was no exception.
I am not usually the biggest short story fan (preferring novels, memoirs, etc.--particularly in Audiobook format), however, this story captivated my attention quickly and built momentum from there on out! listened to this whole work straight through in one setting. The narrator was fabulous, she really added to the work in my opinion, and I tend to be very picky about the narration with my audiobooks...this exceeded my expectations and I am glad I chose to experience this story in audiobook format!
I do not want to give the plot away, but the story itself was also wonderful in a delightfully creepy, surprising way. I definitely recommend this, it was practically a steal for the price-worth every penny and then some!
