Jonathan is obsessive, and to get what he wants he will tear Alex's world apart - threatening not only her career but her marriage and family, too. Soon Alex finds she's capable of doing almost anything to keep hold of her perfect life as it begins to spin dangerously out of her control....

Kept me guessing!!

The fact that I didn't figure it out (or at least I wasn't ever 100% sure) and that the story and the narrator held my attention is the highest compliment I can give a book in this genre. Excellent... and I highly recommend this listen!

WOW!!

This book is an absolute page turner. The ending was wow. I thought I had it figured out but I was completely wrong. Buy this book, you will not regret it.

5 stars isn't enough

One of the best books I have ever read. Not surprising to read that the author was a psychologically major. Her insights into all of her character's behavior was dead on. Many twists but that's quite prevalent in the suspense genre. What made this book stand out is that none of the twists were contrived. All made sense. No tension building that could easily be solved with a simple admission by a character. Only complaint is that -- as good an ending as it was -- it had an ending at all. I will miss waking up to this book.

pretty good

I overall liked it, it was difficult to tell who was telling the truth and ending was surprising but I never knew where it was going. Even in the end I didn't know where it was going. I would recommend, it was entertaining but my entire reaction? Long process to get to the end, but somehow satisfying.

It’s good.. but..

I just finished this book.. I thought it was good and it kept me guessing- but sometimes the storyline just went on and on. There were too many unnecessary details at times that I would skip ahead. But all in all was a good book. Great narrator!

Really Good

It's a bit of a slow start but soon starts rolling along. I liked how the first part of the book is her story then it switches to his. A few chapters are dedicated to some of the other characters perspectives. Kept me guessing till the end and I like that!

Solid psychological thriller

This book kept me guessing until the very end. Is Alex a victim or a perpetrator? I'm not going to tell, but take my advice and read this one. The narration is great, and it definitely throws curves...just when you think you have it figured out.

Did not expect the ending!

This book is one of the best I’ve read lately. Lovely narrator. Lots of twists. Kept me guessing. I usually am able to predict the ending, but didn’t with this one. Sort of wish it had ended differently though.

Female narrator does male voices convincingly

WHITE LIES was yesterday's Audible Daily Deal. The story kept me guessing until the end but was otherwise so-so. This is my first exposure to narrator Rachel Atkins. She does the different voices in the novel very well.

Good gentle thriller

The story begins with our main protagonist, Alexandra, waking up in a hotel room with a bad hangover trying to figure out how she came to be there, and who is the man lying next to her. We soon learn that Alexandra is a medical doctor, married to Rob. She is in Ibiza as part of a girls' boozy weekend. The man next to her, Jonathan, is quite young, attractive, and one of Alex's patients from back home. Alex's career could now be at risk if this mistake became public knowledge.
The story before and after that event is told from several perspectives, the perspectives of course differ significantly, as we the audience are gripped wanting to know what is really going on, and who is the "bad guy" in all of this. We get lots of believable detail about family and professional relationships. For the most part of the book this is all pleasant and engaging listening, but fairly pedestrian as a story. All the action, the twists and turns come in the final hour, so don't give up on this book. The ending is worth the wait.
Like an early Lucy Dawson book that I listened to, Everything You Told Me, this is a relatively easy listen, doesn't take too much concentration for a thriller, and has good ending which wraps everything up without anything being left hanging. It's the kind of book I like anyway and I'll be listening to more by the same author.
Rachel Atkins, the narrator, did an excellent job. Her male voices especially, came across as very plausible.

Overrated, uninteresting story

I'm very surprised that this book gets so many high star reviews. For me it was a waste of time and I regret since I bought it the waste of my monthly credit.
I searched for a thriller and this is NOT, it is not gripping story either.
Middle age mother of two children and a reputable GP on top of it goes on a drinking weekend to Ibiza! Where she sleeps with 17 years old boy. I am not prude but REALLY? I didn't care since the beginning about what would happened and really don't understand why would someone chose to wrote a story about this.
The whole book is about her 'mistake', cheating husband, twisted teenager and his twisted parents.
There is not a single character I cared about. Half way through the book I decided not to continue because I really wasn't interested what would happened.
I didn't care whether she goes to jail or when would 'the twist' finally happen. The whole story and everybody in it was twisted.

It's about justifying how much she was 'hammered' in Ibiza, her 'poor' family, her husband 'justifying his cheating', and her constant repeating 'I DIDN'T DO ANYTHING WRONG,' lots of F... words and unappealing characters.

The narration was good before t the story very poor.

A little disappointed really.

Had high hopes for this book after reading the reviews. Found it quite gripping in places, but overall I found the story dragged and was pretty unbelievable in the end.
A different ending may have made this book amazing, who knows.
It was well written in places...which was a saving grace, but overall a disappointment.
