Julie is devastated to learn that her husband, Paul, is having an affair. It seems her life can’t get any worse - until she comes home to find his dead body in their bed.

The Adulterer’s wife

Good story. The ending was rather far fetched. The droning voice of the narrator did nothing to enhance the story.

Poor story, poorly told

I downloaded this book to listen to over a long drive through Spain. All I can say is that it made the journey feel longer than it should. Dreary, repetitive guff. I speeded up the voiceover because it dragged along with the story. It really didn’t fit. All the suspense of a falling cotton wool ball.

No thrills in this thriller. Buy something else. I’ve heard it so you don’t need to.

Good story

I enjoyed the story but the narrator is awful. She was way too formal. Don’t listen to the audio version!

Not worth a credit

Very dull story, slow and badly read. It was an extremely painful listen and very predictable.

The adulterers wife

Interesting story ruined by the narrator who sounded bored the whole way through I really struggled- usually the narration enhances the listening experience- I think I would have preferred to read this book not listen to it

Annoying

struggled to finish this one and if it wasn't for the fact that I don't like wasting my credit I wouldn't have persevered. first off, the narration was flat and boring, no intonation or inflection. The main character was really annoying to the point where I was shouting at my device. The only good thing about this book was that it eventually ended.

What a Loada Rubbish!!!!!!!

I think there's half decent story line is there but I feel the author go bored and did what kids do at school when writing a story - Rush the end so they can go out to play at break time. The narrator was dreadful that's a given - if was just soooooo painful and cringey to listen to. I really don't like returning books I listened to the end but this needs to be considered a first. Leigh Russell, stick to using Lucy Price-Lewis to narrate your books she really is exceptional.
