Publisher's Summary

What if your worst enemy discovered your darkest secret?
At 2:00 a.m. on the morning of her 40th birthday, Sophie wakes in the darkness of her bedroom and finds a stranger watching her from the foot of the bed.
The intruder hands Sophie a letter and issues an ultimatum: the message is to be opened at her forthcoming party, in front of family and friends, at exactly 8:00 p.m. Any failure to comply will not end well.
Sophie can think of only one person who hates her enough to have hired a professional to menace her like this: her fiancé's ex-wife. What can the letter possibly contain? And why must it be read in front of everyone she loves? This will be no ordinary 40th party.
Sophie is not the only person holding a secret about the evening ahead. When the clock strikes eight, the course of several people's lives will be altered forever.

Kept me interested the whole time

What did you like best about this story?

I liked how it was a thriller that kept you guessing the whole time, but also that there were some actually funny parts to it.

What does Julie Maisey bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She is a terrific narrator. She really brought all the characters to life

Any additional comments?

This book was very entertaining for me I loved that it was a mystery and a bit of a comedy all at once. Definitely didn't see the end coming.

Truth or Dare! Who knows your secrets?

Suspenseful, Funny, and Entertaining! I really enjoyed "You Sent Me a Letter." This book is surprisingly funny, with some great laugh-out-loud moments. The story took place over a 24-hour period, with frequent look-backs by the main character. Readers will find themselves hooked on the exploits of Sophie while she navigates the huge party surrounding her 40th birthday, what is supposed to be a secret wedding, and a guy she's not altogether sure about- not to mention having received a mystery letter warning her to show up for her big night or else! Sophie thereafter plays a sort of bumper-cars between her family, her best friend, her illicit lover, and her fiance's intensely stressful first wife. I can only describe Sophie's big day, in her experience, as super stressful. I was dying to find out who the letter writer was, and this kept me guessing until the very end, as things were very much not as they seemed.
Julie Maisey did a great job as narrator.
This book bucked the psychological-suspense trend in a pleasing way, and I recommend it as a great way to use your credit!

Excellent book.

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

Yes, I would and have! I kept trying to guess who it was that sent the letter and was jumping from person to person. It was intriguing throughout. I couldn't have done what she done. I would've had to tear the letter open immediately and read what it said. I couldn't wait for her to open it.

What was one of the most memorable moments of You Sent Me a Letter?

When she was left at the airport, I could feel how she was feeling. I almost had a panic attack! I wasn't expecting that.

What does Julie Maisey bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

The narrator was very good and brought the book to life

Any additional comments?

Well worth reading. Well written. I hope she writes another one soon. Recommend

Implausible Plot

Pointless book, to many unanswered questions, good premise but just not thought out properly with too many ludicrous situations. Narration started off badly, but I settled into the voice after a few chapters

Ending bothers me

The ending felt rushed and left many threads unresolved. Still enjoyed it but not near as much as I could have.

Envy and revenge are very powerful emotions.

A story well written, l was completely surprised couldn't guess the who
sent the letter.
