Laura Cavendish can't wait to meet the woman who's won her son's affection. Despite a successful career in television and a long, prosperous marriage, Laura's world revolves around kind, talented Daniel. She pictures his new girlfriend, Cherry, becoming a close friend and confidante ...one day, even a daughter-in-law. But although Cherry is beautiful and amiable, Laura can't warm to her. There's something about the possessive way she touches Daniel, the little lies Laura detects. Cherry seems to resent Laura, driving a wedge between mother and son - until one day Daniel is injured in a terrible accident.
Six months later, with Daniel still in a coma and facing death, Laura makes a fateful decision - and carries out an astonishing deceit. A handsome doctor for a husband, with a trust fund and a family villa in Saint-Tropez - it was all supposed to be Cherry's. Now, instead of living with Daniel in his impeccable home, she's jobless and broke. And then Cherry discovers Laura's stunning deception. But Cherry is too clever, too ambitious to let her get away with it. She has already transformed herself into Daniel's dream woman. Now she'll become Laura's worst nightmare.
Author Michelle Frances masterfully weaves both women's perspectives into this gripping, artfully plotted psychological thriller, propelling the listener through one dark twist after another toward a shocking, unforgettable finale.

i think the story might be good but I can't get past the narrator. She sounds like she's reading a stock market report. The most sonorous boring flat uninflected narration I have ever heard. I can't even go on with the story.

Solid Domestic Thriller
My preferred genres teeter from thriller to sci-fi/horror. Thrillers are fun, but I’m usually not blown away by them. Hence, to be fair, I’m rating this book based on its genre. This is a solid good read! I can usually guess the plot and what the characters will do next, however, this one kept me guessing. Kudos to Michelle Frances. This one is a home run!
The writer could make me despise a character one moment and empathize with her the next. It was a rollercoaster and kept me on the edge of my seat and listening every chance I got. If you love thrillers, get this!
