About the book

What if the chance of a perfect life… put your daughter in grave danger?Being a single mother is tough, but I’d do anything for my little girl Scarlet. I’d given up on my career as a voice actor when the call came, but suddenly I was the new narrator for a secret book from bestselling author Philippa Roberts, who has been missing for eight months. It was a lifeline for me and my daughter.

I hated that it meant leaving Scarlet with my ex in his perfect new home with his perfect new girlfriend. But I knew it was the right thing to do.

But as I start reading Philippa’s new novel, I start to wonder if it’s no coincidence that I’ve been chosen to narrate it. There’s something hidden in the pages of this book, I’m sure of it. Some clue to Philippa’s disappearance. And I don’t feel safe. I think I’m being watched. My room has been searched.

And then my ex’s girlfriend calls in tears and everything starts to click together. If I don’t find answers fast, I’ll lose more than my second chance. I’ll lose my daughter.

A completely gripping thriller that will hook you in from the first page and leave you gasping out loud. Fans of Our House, The Woman in the Window and The Wife Between Us won’t be able to put The Narrator down!

My review

I loved that Eve is an audiobook narrator.  That just fascinates me.  Actually the little bit of detail on how a highly anticipated book in a series might be handled at the publishing house was interesting.  This is not my first read by the author and I always enjoy her books.  This one was no exception.  I read it in a day and was quite captivated by the story.

A mysterious new manuscript by a missing author that is part of a wildly popular series.  The book is an easy read, but the plot is layered in intricate by the time it all unfolds.  At the end, I had to go back to the beginning and skim through part of the book to see what I missed.  That’s always a good sign in a suspenseful mystery.  I am not easliy tricked.

In addition to the manuscript, Eve is having difficulties with her ex and is still reeling from her father’s death.  She plays a little bit of an amateur sleuth and tries to do what no one else has been able to and find out what happened to the missing author.  And as it always turns out for an amateur detective, trouble ensues.

A quick read that kept me guessing.  If you like layered plots that unfold, you should give this one a read.
