As a single mother, Annie has an especially close relationship with her son, Ben. They have always been together. Just the two of them. So, when Ben brings home his mysterious beautiful new wife, Daisy, immediately Annie doesn’t trust her. Who is this woman who has taken her son away from her? And what is she hiding? She’ll protect him with her life....

When Ben disappears, suddenly Annie and Daisy are all the other one has. Alone in Annie’s big, remote house, just the two of them, the tension is rising. And like any protective mother, Annie will stop at nothing to expose her new daughter in law, and the secrets she is hiding....

Uhhh... What?? No.

After my fourth attempt to listen to this book, I stopped and asked for my money back. I LOVE psychological thrillers and I can usually find at least one thing interesting or 'different,' or something with a sense of 'twist.'

It's not here. In fact, I don't even know what this book is about. It should be called 'The Mother In Law' or 'The Jerk Son' because that's all the author talks about. This was frustrating. I waited for it to get better but alas.. it doesn't.

I paid full price because it was cheaper than using a credit and, I want my money back.

Blah.

I will say that I had it mostly figured out as I'm sure others will too but even with that said I couldn't stop listening! Great writing and character development!!

not good

This story was not good at all. I just spent the whole book thinking something was coming. A big reveal or a shocking twist, or that maybe I missed something, but nope, it was just not good.

Ugh

Lousy-don’t waste your time. It dragged on & on only to get to the end felling like, “You know what? I don’t care!” Pointless telling of backstories that ended up not making a difference. Spend your credit elsewhere.

Loved this plot

It is a bit slow and frustrating in the middle—everything will be explained so keep reading. Very good and suspenseful book!

Loved all of it!

Really loved everything about this book! I wasn’t sure where the heck it was going, didn’t predict the ending (as I normally would) and really liked the characters. I was sad it was over!

Sensational!

What a utterly brilliantly gripping and well crafted debut novel by Nina Manning. This is THE perfect summer read and bounces along at a great pace to kept the momentum gong as we gather more and more
Knowledge and insight into the characters. I can see this being adapted perfectly into a Feature Film as I visualised every dramatic scene and didn’t see the finale coming and had me utterly hooked from the first chapter.
Can’t wait for book number 2 from Nina!

This book was so boring found it difficult to cont

Boring tedious don't bother to waste your time listening to it tedious. Too much explanation of. Surroundings etc and not even detail about plot.

Great story, shame about the grammar!

The story gripped me from the start, I couldn’t stop listening.
The only thing that rankled, and the reason I didn’t give it 5 stars, was the wrong usage of ‘me’ and ‘I’. For example “She gave it to Ben and I”. This surely shouldn’t happen in a final copy that’s been proof-read?
