The story was ripped from a daytime soap. The performance was terrible and overly dramatic. It was painful to listen to the character's voices.

Would you try another book from Erica Spindler and/or Tavia Gilbert?
No I would not. The characters, plot and narration grated on me to the point that I had to stop listening. This book was not mysterious or smart. The characters were one dimensional, whiny and unrealistic - like characters from a Soap Opera. The main character was supposed to be a grown woman and yet she whinges and bemoans her way through the book like a spineless teenaged girl. It was infuriating to listen to her naïve and downright stupid narration through the book.
What was most disappointing about Erica Spindler’s story?
The entire story was a HUGE disappointment and a waste of a credit.
What didn’t you like about Tavia Gilbert’s performance?
She really made all the women sound like hysterical, weak little girls. Her voice, when narrating dramatic and/ or emotional scenes literally made me roll my eyes and curse in annoyance.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The First Wife?
If I could play editor, I'd throw the book back at the author and tell her to try again.
Any additional comments?
Waste of a credit!!! Amateur writing and rage inducing narration. No thanks.

Remember when we didn't have kindles? We could get loads of cheapie novels in Bargain Books - one summer I got a bucket load of hers! I knew what to expect, but it was still a good listen.
Couple meet on holiday and get married after 4 weeks. When she moves into his privileged life, she starts to hear about missing ladies in the town. Is her new husband actually.....a murderer????!!!

tavia Gilbert is a veteran narrator so no problem there. but the story was slow to start and the relationship between husband and wife not cemented enough. took 4 hours of slow boring story before the suspense and action sta r ted.
