Publisher's Summary

A compulsive and startling psychological thriller for fans of Girl on a Train and Gone Girl.

Loren Wynne-Estes appears to have it all: she's the girl from the wrong side of the tracks who's landed a handsome husband, a stunning home, a fleet of shiny cars and two beautiful daughters....

Then one day a fellow parent taps Loren on the shoulder outside the grand school gate, hands her a note...and suddenly everything's at stake.

Loren's Facebook-perfect marriage is spectacularly exposed--revealing an underbelly of lies and betrayal. What is uncovered will scandalise a small town, destroy lives, and leave a family divided.

But who is to be believed and who is to blame? Will the right person be brought to justice or is there one who got away?

"The One Who Got Away is the new Gone Girl and then some.... The twists and turns are masterful and the way she channels the voices of her characters is a dream to read. I can't recommend this book highly enough. Bring on the movie." (Mia Freedman)

Annoying narrator!

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No. Whilst the story was okay the narrator drove me mad. Switching voices (badly) was quite distracting and I found it irritating.

Would you ever listen to anything by Caroline Overington again?

Perhaps.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Jennifer Vuletic?

I’m really not sure but not her.

Could you see The One Who Got Away being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

No.

Whiny voices ruin it

Good storyline, but the voices of the main characters turn them into whinging brats I could not care about at all.

Didn't see that coming.

Some of the character voices were questionable, but I managed to get through it and enjoyed the mystery. Not my favorite, but an easy listen if you have an extra credit laying around.

Appalling narration

The reader for this book was appalling. She made every character sound angry and belligerent which really impacted on the story!
