I'm about half through -- enjoying individual parts, but the narration makes it very difficult.
Narrator Clare Corbett reads all the characters with the same quick, breathless, inflection, and I found -- at one point -- I was deep into "Lorraine's" story -- the detective -- without realizing we'd left Chloe and Zoe, the mother-to-be and the nanny, the two women who are supposed to be at the center of this story. How we got into the police detective's tale I don't really know.... and I've already backtracked twice. I'll just have to figure it out as we go along.
And yes, there's another problem too: this is another narrator who doesn't pause between these various segments of the story, which makes it even more difficult to follow.
No, I'm not quitting. As I say the various story lines are interesting and compelling enough. I just wish narrators -- who are presumably professionals -- would take the time to make the story more comprehensible, not less.
I don't ask for a thousand voices, I can understand the difficulty of that. But surely just a momentary pause -- one second, maybe -- between the ending of one character's story and the beginning of the next isn't asking too much. Is it?

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
Yes,which is a good find for an avid reader.this book had the whole wow I wonder what will happen next thing going for it.
Which scene was your favorite?
The plot thickens at the end.
Any additional comments?
Creepy in general, but if you are pregnant or think you might be you might need a night light on if listening at night!
