Publisher's Summary

When a body is found buried near the desolate forest road of Kellers Way, Detective Melanie Carter must identify the victim if she is to have any chance of finding the killer. That's no easy task with fragmentary evidence from a crime committed years earlier and a conspiracy of silence from anyone who might have information. The one person who may be able to help is Julie West. 

In a troubled marriage, Julie often jogs along Kellers Way to clear her mind and escape the confines of her suffocating suburban life. Until one day, something happens there that shakes Julie to the core, making her question everything she ever believed about her life, her marriage and even her sanity....

Wow, what a surprise

There is a really stimulating storyline and I loved the alternative chapter representations of the two main characters. I fell in love with the voice of Julie, who read her piece perfectly. I suspected the outcome, but not until late into the book but I was never really sure of it until the very end. I'm looking out for further books by Megan.

Total disappointment

I really didn't enjoy this book. The narration was so annoying especially the voice of the little girl. I was constantly rolling my eyes, with the story line. I was so irritated by the way the author over described everything that wasn't nessasary to the story line. I found the ending such a disappointment, it had every chance to be a great double twist but no such luck.

Decent Book but One of the Narrators Was Annoying

Almost couldn't finish this book. The cop narrator was so irritating. Weird over the top accent and constantly letting out breath at the end of sentences.
hard to listen to but a decent enough storyline.
I finished it and enjoyed it regardless of the annoying narrator.

the narrator is everything

While the narrator for Julie was wonderful, the cop character's narration was not fabulous, and quite distracting.

WOW

I thought it was a good from the beginning. Nice little twist at the end. Along the lines of some of the great physiological thrillers

Not as gripping as The Escape Room, but ok

The narration was good and the story was ok but I didn't like the ending.

A Good Listen...but Underwhelming

The Girl in Kellers Way is entertaining to listen to. A good story with good characters.

However I personally found it very predictable. While there are definitely some surprises, the bulk of the plot is stock standard when it comes to these kind of storylines (in my experience).

Not to say it was bad, just not outstanding. I did enjoy listening to it.

I did not enjoy the narrator of the detective, finding the voice irritating and nasally. The other narrator is great.

I was prepared to give this novel a slightly higher rating, but the ending... it was not good. Very unsatisfying.

Overall, it's not a *bad* novel, and at the length it is, I would recommend it to anyone who can't find anything better to read. It would be a good 'fast read' on an airplane or by the beach.
However when comparing it to some other wonderful novels I have read recently in this genre, it just doesn't compare. Half-hearted applause for this one.

Returning for my credit

I really enjoyed The Escape Room and hoped to follow it with another from Goldin, but I absolutely cannot listen to this book one more minute. I’m maybe ten minutes in and if I have to continue to hear the narrators gasp for breath after every clause spoken I’m gonna go postal. And the pathologist sounds like a valley girl. What the hell. Just awful.

This is certainly not up to the quality of Goldin’s first book The Escape Room.

If you recently read Megan Goldin’s first book The Escape Room and are looking for another great read by the same author, this is NOT it. There is so many awful things wrong with this story that I myself could write a book. I will only name a few as to get my point across.
I am not sure which awful thing takes precedence because they are all equally damning to this train wreck called a book. One thing an audio book needs for it to be successful is a decent narrator. This book had two narrators and they were both without a doubt awful. To the point that the awful sound and cadence of their voice made my ears hurt. Two separate narrators and they both couldn’t pronounce simple words. An example being both female narrators pronunciation of the word “schedule”. They both continued to pronounce it as Shed-Wool. If listening to them both mispronounce simple words isn’t grating enough the gasping breaths they continuously took while reading a sentence had me wanting to scream and bang my head on a wall.

I am completely baffled at this story. It is without a doubt the worst book I have ever listened to. Normally I can find at least a couple positive things to say regarding a book, however this book I can’t. Not a single character is believable or well developed. I have listened to 1,000+ books on audible over the years and this is the only negative review I have written. This is truly and awful story and the ending is well.....so absolutely horrible. I can’t begin to describe what’s wrong with it. There’s no words to describe the torture.
Save your credit, do not buy this book!! Your ears will thank you. If you haven’t listened to The Escape Room by Megan Goldin, then spend your credit on that one because it’s definitely worth it and has amazing narration, where as the book...NOOOO!!!!

Good story but the narrator miss pronounces most words

The plot was unique and entertaining but the ending was abrupt and disappointing. The narrator mispronunciations sooo many words that it is distracting and annoying. The very first sentence has a mispronounced word and goes downhill from there
