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!

If you could sum up The Stepmother in three words, what would they be?

Twisted, Fast-Paced, & Disturbing

This was great! I loved this book so much!

Who was your favorite character and why?

I thought Marlena was a great character. She directed so much of this story.

Which character – as performed by Karina Fernandez – was your favorite?

Gosh.... I was impressed with Karina's ability to do this book justice! I'm not sure I can pick just one!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I would just say... don't read this before bed. It might creep you out a bit too much to sleep.

Any additional comments?

I was so surprised by this book! I wish I hadn't waited so long to read/listen to it. It was just so darn great!! If you like books that mess with your head... listen to this!!
