Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of The Sunday Girl

When Charlie sees a man who is the spitting image of her husband, Oliver, on a dating app, her heart stops. 

Her first desperate instinct is to tell herself she must be mistaken - she caught only a glimpse from a distance as her friends were laughingly swiping through the men on offer. But she knows it’s no mistake. She took that photo. On their honeymoon. She just can’t let it go. 

Suddenly other signs of betrayal begin to add up, and so Charlie does the only thing she can think of to defend her position - she signs up to the app to catch Oliver in the act. But Charlie soon discovers that infidelity is the least of her problems. Nothing is as it seems, and nobody is who she thinks they are.

Goodness me

Well what a load of rubbish this book is. So poorly written. Over written. Silly lead character I wanted to thump her. If she said thump thump thump again I could have killed her. Not sure why I listened to it all. Some of these authors really should read well written books. Perhaps they might learn something

Great listen

Took a while for me to get into it but was addicted at the end. Great and can’t wait to watch it on Netflix

seriously bland writing

Rather uninspired writing at times, lacking nuance and craft...the amount of 'little did she know just how bad it would get' and 'but this was only the beginning of her problems'. I got maybe 5 hours in and couldn't take it anymore. Nothing in here that gives the reader rich perspective, empathy or imagery. Its more like the unfolding of a sequence of events that leaves a feeling of indifference . The narrator performance made the characters feel petty and over the top, probably trying to bring some shape and expression to characters written in 2D.

Loved it!

You won’t be disappointed. Great narration. I couldn’t switch off. Felt I was right there with her the whole time.

Long time to establish characters

The story set up took a long time to establish. Once established, it moves with pace with a strong ending.

Good, but not great.

An interesting listen, but disjointed in parts and with a not-so-strong storyline. Was good, but not great.

Predictable

I found this book very disappointing, plot predictable, writing average, the overuse of boom boom , boom boom , boom boom, is annoying. Wouldn't recommend.

Details

This book wasn’t as good as her first - the story was good with a great twist at the end with a really good narrator however I kept flipping forward most of the way through as there was just too much detail in everything she did - a second by second detail of the entire day and took too many chapters in to actually start the story- disappointing but will try her next book

Exciting first read from PiP Drysdale

Absolutely loved it. I enjoyed that the book made reference to the now of reality with apple Mac books, Starbuck coffee, dating apps and google. Will be moving onto the Sunday girl next.
