Publisher's Summary

An absolutely gripping psychological thriller

When I arrive unannounced at my husband's studio in need of a shoulder to cry on after hearing that my best student, Alex, has died, I see a pair of wineglasses drying by the sink, and my deepest fear is confirmed: my husband is having an affair. 

Most women would fall to their knees in tears and throw him out of the house - but I just can't bring myself to do it. 

Instead, I go home and cook a healthy dinner for our children, walk the dog, and unload the dishwasher without complaint. I will make him see that I'm still the woman he married; attractive, successful, the glue that holds our perfect family together. I need this marriage to work to protect a terrible secret of my own, something that would destroy everything I've already sacrificed so much for. 

But when the police arrive at my door asking questions about Alex's death that I can't answer, and threatening text messages start appearing on my phone, I know that someone close has been watching me very carefully.

Great Read

I really enjoyed this book. It kept me guessing and the characters were well written. The narration was excellent which probably added to the overall enjoyment. Highly recommend.

Naive Crying Neurotic Idiot!

No spoilers. The main character was truly annoying with the rentless babbling squamish pathetic behavior.

2 stars because initially and in the middle of the book the plot was thickening for what i hoped would be an interesting delight.

There is a very late twist but by this time I had disengaged. It had good potential but failed.

I would skip it and let someone else summarize it for me in order to save a credit and time.

Nail Biting Thriller

NO SPOILERS!! I finished this book in one sitting. I just couldn’t stop. The situations in the story are different and tense. I found myself yelling out loud over some of the protagonists choices and it entertained me from beginning to end.

I recommend this to anyone that likes psychological or domestic thrillers and lots of twists!

Just different enough to stand out.

The main character’s professional life, along with the complexity of the plot, make this story just different enough to stand out in this genre. Very intriguing, a good listen.

Enjoyable Book

I really enjoyed listening to this book. You can tell that the author is not from the US even though that is where the book is set. I'm not trying to be critical. It's just interesting to find the subtle differences in language. We don't say "Biro" for "pen." We don't revise, we study. "Lost the plot" isn't a phrase I've ever heard here, although I like it and I may start using it myself. We move around instead of moving about. We aren't in the habit of kissing on the cheek, especially if it's someone you just met. But even among best friends, it's usually just a hug. We generally don't end text messages with X's for kisses and we don't tap the side of our nose. Again, not being critical of the book, but if you really want it to sound like it's authentic, there you go. I thought this book was interesting and well written and I will be looking for others by this author.

It was just Okay

I have heard rave reviews about this and was
really excited but it fell flat for me. There was a lot of I thermal turmoil that I feel could have been utilized better. The attempts at misdirect were shallow and frankly a bit boring. I had to speed up the replay just to get through it.

Outstanding. Both riveting and relaxing.

An excellent story written to perfection. The narrator was outstanding. I’m listening to it for the second time which allows me to put things together that I missed the first time around. I rarely listen to a book a second time, and never immediately after the first listening. True to the title, it does include adult situations. They were very well done. The main characters are endearing. The constant repetitive use of a few terms such as “team player,” would normally irritate me, but was done so well that it enhanced the story for me. As others have mentioned, the use of British terms surprised me, as the narrator was clearly an American with perfect American English pronunciation vs British English. A minor blemish. It’s a great nighttime listen, as the narrators even tone was a great sleep aid for me. At the same time, the narrator also made the Audible riveting to listen too. That contradiction is difficult for any narrator, but was done perfectly.

great narrator/good book

The book was good. In a couple parts I found myself thinking it was lagging and sometimes I wondered why a particular part of the book was even added in, but overall it was a good listen.

Great story!

I am always excited to see a new book by Natalie Barelli. Her storylines are original and creative and Unfaithful did not disappoint. I thought I had this one figured out but there was a surprising twist at the end!

This had me gripped

I loved that the main character, Anna, was a mess but deeply interesting, smart but also fallible - this doesn’t go where you think it’s going, and I loved the path it took to get there.

well i didnt expect that!!!

this story is very clever - you think you are going one place and end up in a completely different one. I cant say I enjoyed listening because I disliked Anna so much, she just made the most stupid decisions, got lots of headaches and accidently let things slip that got her into even more trouble (hence only given it 4 stars). But that is credit to the author that she managed to evoke such strong feelings in me. I kept listening until the end cos i had to find out what happened, and it was a very satisfying ending - a really good story, I do recommend it. Good narration too.

Excellent twists and turns

You spend much of the book wondering if it’s going to be a let down but in fact the twists and turns bring it together in the end. Worth a listen.

Frustrating but definitely worth a credit !

Frustrating because I spent so much of the book annoyed that a college associate maths professor could do so many dumb things ! Including how she continually questions why it’s necessary to understand how you arrive at a mathematical solution, and that it’s not enough to show the solution itself. We learnt this basic principle in UK maths class aged 10, so I don’t find it credible that this principle is a surprise to a college maths professor. If the main character had been better researched and showed occasional signs of intelligence, I’d have rated the book as a 5.

Definitely worth listening as the plot is very clever, in contrast to it’s mostly ditsy heroine. Great performance too.

Nice but not impressive

The story is interesting with some nice little twists. Not a book that blew my mind, but most of the time I enjoyed listening to it.
At some times I really lost connection with the main character, Anna, because of the annoying way she dealt with certain things. Fortunately, this was only shortly and not very frequently.
Worth a daily deal price, I wouldn’t have paid the full amount though.
