Impressive, worthy thriller!

I would really recommend this audiobook. It was suspenseful, interesting and got me hooked right from the start. I liked the main character, because she was realistically flawed, sentimental and real, but also smart.
The plot contains plenty of elements of suspense and even some supernatural creepiness. I loved the big, secret-filled country house that was home to the family. Our protagonist is a newlywed, having found her dream husband mid-life; along with wedded bliss comes a not-so-awesome stepfamily, with teenage kids and a meddling, snotty ex-wife. The characters were fairly well-drawn out, and I liked the realistic aspects of life in a blended family. When things start getting more and more strange, expect to be shocked and on the edge of your seat while our protagonist works out what is really going on- or does she? This was a fun, suspenseful thriller that kept me guessing, with plenty of characters to keep you engaged. Recommended!

Yes ..Loved it

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Stepmother?

Well I do not want to spoil this book as I think listening to this and Girl in the Sea had me all tide up? They where both very good and entertaining. Forgive me for mixing up the characters in my last review.

Have you listened to any of Karina Fernandez’s other performances before? How does this one compare?


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
