I’ve been underwhelmed with this summer’s highly anticipated thrillers.  Until now.  I must say, I went in with low expectations based on my other summer reading, but this one wowed me.  It’s a simple premise.  A husband and wife get away to an out of the way Scottish church.  Their marriage is teetering on the edge of ending and this is a last ditch effort to patch it up.  It’s told in alternating chapters of Amelia and Adam with chapters also representing anniversary letters.

Narrated by Richard Armitage and Stephanie Racine, the audiobook is fabulous.  I’ve listened to Richard before and he never disappoints in bringing the story to life and Stephanie holds her own in this story, which is a compliment with the company she’s in.

There are twists and turns along the way, as you would expect with this Alice Feeney book, but I think she’s outdone herself with the gotcha twist of the book.  I was listening in my car and had to turn it off while I worked out my confusion.  Trust me when I say, don’t read about it and don’t fault me for lack of details.  I don’t want to accidentally spoil anything.  I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the plot moves at a slow pace, but trust me at the end you will not have minded.

if you’re looking for a twisty domestic thriller, you should definitely pick this one up.
