This story was slow to start, but gradually started to present more and more unanswered questions to the point couldn't put it down (stop listening) I usually only listen when driving finding it boring to just sit and listen. Not this time. A real thriller.

I did enjoy this book but found the ending to be..mehhh. It might just do it for some but for me left me feeling silly for supporting her all the way. There didnt seem to be any reason explored for why some of these characters acted the way they did. Maybe its me that just missed it, but there you have it The narration was excellent however.

The idiotic main character had me gritting my teeth and wanting to push HER off a cliff myself. Lots of inconsistencies still in the script which are annoying to say the least. Narrator was excellent however

I enjoyed this book and as someone who has worked in child protective services for many years, am familiar with the issues raised in this harrowing tale, of domestic violence and controlling partners, of mental health illness and of grooming a child's mindset to twist reality to reflect that of the abuser. But the mother drove me nuts! I wanted to slap her so many times for her naivety and ignorance...bur then i had to remind myself that people otten are naive and ignorant in these situations. Not too many surprises in the plot development. You didnt need to be a psychic to know what was coming next, but still a good "read" to a predictable but satisfying conclusion

I have read several Jane Fallon books now and have enjoyed them in varying degrees,. This one was OK, entertaining and well read (if the narrator a bit too fast) with good reflection of the book's character's tones. But it was also predictable. Not too many surprises, .just confirmation of what you picked up early on. Maybe i didnt enjoy it as much because ive had the unfortunate experience of working with too many office bitches over the years. At least this was a divergence from what appears to be a commom theme in Fallon's books, that being of revenge.

Behind Her Eyes is simply the most intriguing book I have ever read for its stunning ending that unravels everything you had assumed. Awesome read and kept me the edge of my (car!) seat in every chapter.

A great read.

This is the 2nd time ive either read or listened to the audio. You know that feeling you get halfway through when you know you know what is going to happen? But it must have been a long time ago because i was transfixed all over again and couldn't put it down.

An interesting story of revenge

Narration wonderful with just the right emphasis when needed. The story was engrossing and a clever look at the intricacies of betrayal of a marriage. Descriptive and well developed characters

Loved it ♡♡

Really enjoyed this story which i listened to in one day as I did housework, cooked and sat curled up on the couch in front of the fire on a rainy afternoon. The toxic "friendship" between Amy & Mel is something I think most women can relate to. Many of us have had a Mel in our lives that we slowly learn is not a friend at all. Only one small criticism.. when Cat knocks on Jacks door (to check no one is home prior to her and Amy letting themselves in to snoop about) saying if either Jack or MEL answer she would just say she was in the area and popping in to say hello. This does not make sense as Mel is not supposed to be in Jacks house so why would Cat potentially say to Mel if she came to the door that she was popping in to say hello? Jack yes, Mel, no. Apart from that minor point the book is a great read.

Excruciatingly boring!

I persevered until 3/4 Of the way thru this book which got more and more..can't think of a word to give it justice...banal, boring, mind numbing. I usually enjoy Moriaty but definitely NOT this time. Waste of time and a ridiculous story theme. What were you thinking Jaclyn???
