Publisher's Summary

My husband’s dead. She’s at my door. She owns my home...

The doorbell rings, just days after my beloved husband’s sudden death. I don’t recognise the woman on our doorstep, with her buttery blonde highlights, a diamond bracelet identical to my own and a bouncing baby boy in her arms.

As I show her inside, I notice her eyes grow wide as she takes in our spacious hallway, and the big squashy sofas that we all used to pile on. She glances at the silver-framed family photos and my little daughter hiding behind my skirts.

She looks at me, her blue eyes serious. ‘I’m sorry’ she says. ‘I know this will be hard to hear. But I am your husband’s girlfriend. And this is his son.'

My world implodes. And then she tells me that she owns our home – and that she’s not going anywhere...

An utterly gripping psychological thriller from the number one bestselling author of The Marriage. If you like Gone GirlThe Girl on the Train and Lisa Jewell then you will be hooked by The Girlfriend.

A twisted tale

I couldn’t stop listening to this one and didn’t pick any of the outcomes. But it did all get a bit anti-climatic at the end as there were too many closed loops to keep up. But all in all a great listen.

A few weeks twists, but none-the-less quite predictable.

I enjoyed listening to this story. It was an easy listen yet still quite enjoyable. The narration was clear and consistent (which def helps) and the characters believable.

Page turner

Finished this book in no time as I couldn't wait to see what happened. Penty of twists and turns and a surprise at the end. I like this author and narrator was superb.

Great narration, story almost there

Interesting plot had me hooked early and at half way I couldn’t wait to know how it ended. Unfortunately I thought the ending was a real letdown, rushed and clunky.

The narrator did a terrific job, really well done

Unexpected twist at the end

Overall enjoyable experience, wasn’t expecting twist at the end. Performance was alright and I would prefer more intense approach in the exciting and interesting moment.

Made me feel something

Great listen! Maybe one of my favourites. Wasn’t sure where it was going. Love it when you can’t see the twists.

What could be better?

Great story with lots of depth, well performed and all the loose ends tied up by the final chapter - highly recommend!

Not for me

Far fetched and really not sure why anyone would put up with any of the main characters. Silly.

A very intriguing story of deception and unfaithfulness

The emotions that twist and turn. Very clever in the end with no idea of such intricacies in this story!
