Don't Do It -- Just Don't!

I usually love Samantha Hayes books. This one was full of characters who make bizarre and unbelievable decisions. The whole premise and all the twists and turns seemed manufactured, not at all believable. Yes, I realize it's a novel, but there has to be a semblance of "this could happen". The main female character was weak and dependent and basically stupid. The narrators of Mary and Murray were really good, but by the end I didn't want to hear their voices because of what they were saying. Basically by the end I was hate listening just to confirm my suspicions that it really wasn't going to get any better. Skip this book and buy Until You're Mine, which was smart and clever and really really well done.

Excellent

Each of the narrators made the characters so real that you were carried through the intriguing storyline with ease and became totally immersed . Thoroughly enjoyed

Disappointing

Have enjoyed the other Samantha Hayes books & was excited to listen to this one, especially given the other reviews. Feel like I’ve listened to a different book! Silly story, all characters unlikeable & gave up before finishing. Will be returning this book
