Publisher's Summary

The terrible secrets of a marriage, the love that can turn to desperation, the refuge and heartbreak of being a parent, the fragile threads that cradle a family. Three Hours Late is the second heart-wrenching novel by author Nicole Trope.
Once, so very long ago, she watched him like this when he came to pick her up from a date. Her stomach fluttered and burned with infatuation and desire. She would watch him walk up the path and think, 'This must be love.' But that was so very long ago.
Now Liz is wary and afraid. She has made a terrible mistake, and it cannot be undone. Alex believes that today will be the day she comes back to him. Today will be the day his wife and young son finally come home. Today they will be a family again. But Liz knows that some things can never be mended. Some marriages are too broken. Some people are too damaged.
Now the most important thing in her life is her son, Luke, and she will do anything in her power to protect him. So when Alex is a few minutes late bringing Luke back, Liz begins to worry, and when he is an hour late her concern grows, and when he is later still she can feel her whole life changing, because what if Alex is not just late?

Gripping emotional and psychological thriller with content of domestic violence. Not for feint hearted. Excellent.

People are not as they seem

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

yes, slow to start but an eye opener.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Three Hours Late?

The ending

Have you listened to any of Susan Strafford’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No but have now downloaded more by her.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, bit slow for that but good everyday listening.
