When 30-year-old Dawn reads Miranda's email, she sees red. People have always told Dawn she's beautiful, and she just hopes they don't see beneath - to how she grew up, to what she's always tried to outrun. She revels in her getaways with her perfect (maybe too perfect) husband, the occasional long weekend in luxurious homes, temporarily inhabiting other people's privileged lives. Miranda's email strikes a nerve, with its lying intimation that Dawn is so dirty you need to throw out her sheets.
Beware of your "host"
I wouldn't have left a review at all if I didn't feel it was my civic duty to warn others.
Fifty-seven-year-old Miranda thought she'd seen it all, but she can't believe her eyes when she reads Dawn's review. She's a doctor's wife but she needs that rental money desperately. People might think her life is privileged, but they don't know what's really going on. They don't know about her son. She won't take this threat to her livelihood - to her very life - lying down.
Two very different women with this in common: Each harbors her own secret, her own reason why she can't just let this go. Neither can yield, not before they've dredged up all that's hidden, even if it has the power to shatter all they've built.
This is not over.
This is so not over.

Pettiness Turn Twisted!
Yes, this book is literally about an online review from a guest to the host of a vacation rental property. And somehow the author is able to create twists and turns and develop complex characters. I really like how I was never led on to think the story was going a certain way -- all the elements in the story are very relevant and concise. I very much appreciate the way the story constantly kept coming together and every detail was meaningful all the way to the end. It maintained my interest the entire time and I do recommend this book.

A Tale of Two Women
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would absolutely recommend this book to a friend. It was different from most books I have read, and I read 3-5 books a week. This fictional story is about how misunderstandings effect lives.
Who was your favorite character and why?
This question is hard to answer. Both women were people I loved and hated at the same time. I saw both sides and became aggravated at them both. Comparable to the soap opera stars, the one everybody loves to hate, maybe.
Which scene was your favorite?
When one figures out her husband wasn't who she thought. Nothing more to say, or I would give too much away.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
There are a couple of parts that were sad for me, as a mother.
Any additional comments?
I wasn't sure what to expect from this book, but have been trying to branch out from the genres I usuallly read. (Lots of romance for many years, now mostly thrilllers and horror.) I'm so glad I gave this book a try. I can't really explain why I enjoyed it so, but I found it drew me in and I didn't want to stop listening.
