Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
Yes, but not the ones about to have a baby. It's for fans of books like Gone Girl.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
I saw it coming early on and unfortunately think it would have been better to read because the voices gave away the twist before you're meant to know what's going on. I think this is the first time ever a thriller twist hasn't worked in audio.
What does Clare Corbett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I love how her voice rose and fell to indicate tension, confusion, etc.
Any additional comments?
It's a great holiday read but if you've read other books in this genre you'll figure out the twist early on. Still, I wanted to see how it played out and that was enjoyable enough.
A riveting read and well audited too. Without giving away too much, this book really has you captivated. A word of warning though, quite gruesome in parts and it would be unkind and insensitive of me to recommend to someone who maybe sensitively affected or reeling from a recent miscarriage. Having said that though, full credit should still go to Samantha; for an engaging and thrilling fictitious novel from beginning to end. I hope you can enjoy. Thanks.

Complex relationships combined with exciting characters keep the reader hooked til they get tipped on their head with a twist that takes a few re-reads to sort out.....thanks Samantha! The narration failed to separate some characters' voices sufficiently, although this may have been a requirement, and the last chapters end up a little anti-climatic as the writer justifies the twist. Still a good read that kept me engrossed.
It took a while before I got used to the narrator-her voice was just too whispery. I found the story a bit disappointing, a very very obvious red herring was apparent by chapter 2 and the character development was sub par
